Fields of Gold. Skies of Gray.

I had to get away this past weekend; had one hell of a week and I was missing my schwest so much! I literally didn't want to move unless it was in a direction that led me closer to her.  Next thing I know, Im on a plane and my sister is in my arms.  Nothing better.  She is remarkable.  A true gem.  It was rainy in Seattle the whole time, but I didn't mind at all; I was with my sisssstttteeerrr and her beautiful, happy, baby.  We did so much: got lost in an alice in wonderland themed corn maze, ate Ivar's on the dock, made homemade popcorn balls, went shopping, ate Cassies bomb freakin dig French Toast made from homemade bread, ate at the Rainforest Cafe (yes... we did a lot of eating), ate at Justin's mom's house, put a mustache on Daphne, fed Daphne a lime (ok, so maybe I did that... ok ok and put the stache on Daphne while  Cassie rolled her eyes, but stop getting hung up on the details), did pear tasting experiments (very exotic.. you ask the produce man which two are the best and then you eat them), ate free wieners from a German man (again, those details! give it a rest), and catapulted pumpkins..

 Are you wondering how Daphne is standing on her own? I'll never tell!


 Did that face just make you laugh out loud!? How hilarious is she!? I think she is going to have a fabulous sense of humor... just a hunch...
 Here I am just explaining all about the Queen of Hearts...
Here I am making her cry......  

Here I am feeding her a piece of baby corn. Baby corn did I say? Why, yes. Yes, I did.
 She is diggin it!!!
 (I wish I had the pic of the weiner to insert here.)
 Ok, you win Cass... yes Im glad you made the produce man take our picture.  This is one of my favorites from my trip...
 The Daph pre feeding. The rattle pre cleaning. Both happened a lot that day..

Fish are an excellent distractor if you ever need one for a baby.  Just sayin.

From Seattle, with love 

Wasn't all that it seemed

I know it wasn't always wrong
But i've never known a winter so cold
No I don't want my hands in the cold
But I still hope
Cause this is how things ought to have been
And I know the words are there
Wasn't all that it seemed
Why can't I dream
Why can't I dream
Cause I know you care

It's time to live and let die

Do you know what's worth fighting for?When it's not worth dying for?Does it take your breath awayAnd you feel yourself suffocating?
Does the pain weigh out the pride?And you look for a place to hide?Did someone break your heart inside?You're in ruins
One, 21 gunsLay down your arms, give up the fightOne, 21 gunsThrow up your arms into the sky, you and I
When you're at the end of the roadAnd you lost all sense of controlAnd your thoughts have taken their tollWhen your mind breaks the spirit of your soul
Your faith walks on broken glassAnd the hangover doesn't passNothing's ever built to lastYou're in ruins
One, 21 gunsLay down your arms, give up the fightOne, 21 gunsThrow up your arms into the sky, you and I
Did you try to live on your ownWhen you burned down the house and home?Did you stand too close to the fireLike a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone?
When it's time to live and let dieAnd you can't get another trySomething inside this heart has diedYou're in ruins
One, 21 gunsLay down your arms, give up the fightOne, 21 gunsThrow up your arms into the sky
One, 21 gunsLay down your arms, give up the fightOne, 21 gunsThrow up your arms into the sky, you and I
