New custom post toppers arrived, and with that our deck is officially done! Continue reading
I managed to fit a lot of my favorite summertime activities into the last 24 hours:
Drive-n movie theater
Ride the OHSU tram
Milwaukie farmer’s market
Get someone a birthday present
Visit the dog park
Time in the hammock
Visit the rebuilding center
Learn to cook on a charcoal grill
I guess it’s okay with me that this is the last weekend of August. Now that the deck project is done, I’m working to get the most out of my remaining summer.
Here is a quick project I recently pulled together after Kyle and I misread a door mat that said “welcome home”
It’s the perfect door mat, because when we get home, it’s welcoming. And when anyone else comes here, they have to leave.
…and that was good enough reasoning for me! We bought a blank door mat and the rest came together pretty quickly!

Here are a couple photos from last weekend’s walk through Milwaukie – we’re really starting to feel at home in this funny little town. These were taken from the new waterfront park. We’re looking forward to nicer weather and getting a river-worthy vessel to take out!
This duck was cruising along.
Kyle and Osa like to stop and read every sign, so they can learn about nature.
…part of our walk included getting new library cards for the Milwaukie library. I’m pretty darn excited for access to the free books!
