Man! It's been a long time since I've written one of these! Sorry. All is well up here in Portland. We've had fun since Aaron got back from Scout Camp. We went up to Fort Vancouver in Washington on the 4th and watched the biggest firework show west of the Mississippi. Anyways, it was pretty good aside from all the dirty smokers. We all wore glow in the dark glasses and braclets and were the hit. We celebrated my birthday on Tuesday. We went up to the gorge and hiked through freezing cold water to a water fall. Actually it wasn't too bad this time (remember mike, heidi, matthew, and bethany. It was only up to our waists this time and I didn't fall in!) We stopped and took a break by the falls and ate yummy cherries. We left kind of early and gave our kids to a sitter and went to Benihana's and then to see War of the Worlds. It was really fun!
We went to the Farmer's Market on Saturday and got lots of mushrooms and made a really yummy fungi pasta! It was so fun and good--even homemade noodles. Arwen HATES mushrooms by the way--at least that's what she told us before even taking a bite. What a silly girl.

We were at the park and Arwen yelled down from the slide, " Hey, remember me? I'm Arwen!" She says her name so cute She enunciates the AR and then draws out the wen. "I'm ARweeennn."
Aaron asked her to sing a song with him and she looked at him and said, "I'm just too busy."
We were waiting for Aaron at church on sunday and a lady from a different ward walked by and I thought Arwen said, "A pretty princess." (She calls dresses princesses.) Then she corrected me and said, "No, a BIG princess." The lady was pretty big. Luckily she didn't hear Arwen.

Arwen likes to grab Noah and roll all over the floor with him and "wrestle." I about die every time they do it, but they LOVE it! Noah shrieks for joy which Arwen loves. It's so cute.
The little kid can get his butt in the air in attempts to crawl (well only when we set up the car track and let the car race. He REALLY wants to get that car.
He rolled himself over to Arwen yesterday and started to bug her. He kept kicking her really hard to get her attention. It was so funny. She kept telling him to stop and he kicked harder!
I just walked in on them and ARwen was sitting on Noah and he was giggling. What a beast sister!

Love, NASA

PS Thanks grandma for my birthday money! Love you lots!
