I was reticent to part with the bit of money that I brought, but when I saw these crayons, I just knew I had to have them. Seriously, how cute are they?I love kitties and I love new crayons and the two combined just about puts me over the edge. I may let the girl use them. The creators have an etsy shop, Kitty Baby Love, in case you want some kitty crayons of your own. (They also have candles, if you aren't in the market for crayons.)
Also downtown, was a carnival/festival event for Cinco de Mayo. What follows are numerous self indulgent pictures, mostly starring my children enjoying those festivities:Finally, a few shots of the area where all this took place, the Tom McCall Waterfront park:I have no desire to turn this blog into all Oregon, all the time, but in case it's not obvious, I'm loving my new home state. I truly feel like my little family belongs here. That being said, I was super excited to come home and find these in my mailbox, courtesy of Peggy.(Thanks again, Peggy!) I can't tell you how glad I am to have these resources. I've begun studying them and now maybe I'll be brave enough to venture out on my own to a destination other than Target, the middle school, or the grocery store.
