Matt's Surprise 30th Birthday river float!

What a day! Thanks to all who joined us for Matt's surprise day of floating down the Mokelumne River in tubes! Boy was it cold! A high of 75 with a chance of rain in late August? What? Regardless, everyone sucked it up and put their butts in the water in honor of Matt. Everyone had a blast and we hope to make this an annual event (but with warmer weather next year!).

Almost 29 weeks!

Here are a few belly shots from almost 29 weeks! We're getting there! I am trying to take it easy to keep this little one in a bit longer! "Bedrest", modified or not, is not my idea of a good time. But this little gal is worth it!

This scares me...

As most of you know, I have a small business, Punkiboo Designs. I hand paint fun and funky images on organic cotton baby onesies and try to sell them at a reasonable price: $25. My onesies are available on at so are other "hand painted" onesies. Most are amazing. But here is one that sells for $14. Yikes. First of all, puff paint is no longer a "must have" in the world of art supplies(or wardrobes)and secondly, it looks like a really badly decorated Safeway birthday cake! I don't mean to sound like a jerk or to sound like I am a critically acclaimed professional artist (which I am not) who sells hundreds of pieces of clothing every week. I am SO far from that. I am just a stay at home mom who loves art and creating one-of-a-kind baby apparal (while making some money) selling what I believe to be a quality product. I only mean to avoid my "hand painted" shirts from being grouped with preschool arts and crafts. Take my the extra 11 dollars. Yikes.

A simple little coloring session can become quite interesting around here... especially if Mommy turns her back.

Sisters playing

For as much as our girls argue and annoy one another, they really are great friends and playmates!
