We were so lucky this year that the strawberry farm hit it’s peak on the week we are having spring break and dad is on vacation. We spent some time […]

Sweet baby is 8 months old!

Just a quick picture to mark baby’s 8th month (a bit late, I’m afraid! Baby was 8 months on 3/24). A dear friend and two of her daughters visited a couple of weeks ago and snapped this great shot of Iz and me. Photo by Natalie Meyer
