i am so behind on blogging i can't even think straight. i don't even know what day it is. i thought it was sunday today. i love my life. every second is full and the days pass in a dizzy whirl. my family has been in town and we are all together in the sun, holding babies and taking walks and laughing and telling stories. the kids had an impromptu easter egg hunt. saturday night we had a family-video-watching party of home movies we made from 2006 to 2009 . sunday morning we had brunch over here with friends, coffee and quiche and fruit and scones and orange juice. then sunday night we babysat little utah while addie went to san francisco to watch art's band play a show at the make out room. then today we all walked across town, a big traipsing parade of us, to joey and emily's house and then all went out to pizza together. the days feel long and rich and i am about to fall into bed next to my sleeping toot. she just takes it all in, bouncing her plump little legs in the arms of whoever is holding her, chirping with laughter, singing out with her hoarse little voice and grabbing at anything interesting that is not a toy. the days are fine and lovely and my cheeks feel rosy today from sunshine and my sleepy crazy heart is overflowing with love.
here are a whole bunch of photos of our weekend. sorry this is so slapdash.
my mom with all five of her grandkids. stoked.
i hope you are all having beautiful full days with people you love. i gotta say, i'm digging daylights saving time this year. long warm sunny afternoons that turn into balmy eves. that gritty nostalgic sunkissed feeling you get after long days outdoors and a cold sweet beer, hanging out in a parking lot with bare legs and sandals at night, giddy, going to the gas station in a group, being giant dorks together, a skip in your step. i think march is giving this year a prime and vital infusion of pure energy. i am excited. i send joy to you all out there.
