Week 35: Chicagoans Visit PDX

During this week, we enjoyed spending time with my brother-in-law Kevin and his girlfriend Mejay, who came to Portland from Chicago for a visit.

Here are photo challenge days 236-242:

(I guess I let this zucchini get just a tad too big.)

Showing off the ReBuilding Center to Kevin and Mejay.

Chillin' at the dentist's office.

Kevin and Mejay prepared a delicious
(and beautiful!) dinner for us one evening.

So many friends for playing with blocks...

...and reading books, too.

Bye-bye, Uncle Kevin.


Mamatography 2012 Linked up at Wordless Wednesday at Hobo Mama and Natural Parents Network, at What's New at Vibrant Wanderings, and with the other lovely Mamatography project participants at Diary of a First Child!


  1. That is a giant zucchinni. Maybe shred it and stick it in the freezer for later use?

    1. It was HUGE. I ended up making chocolate zucchini bread (2 loaves), zucchini hash brown patties, and I still had some left over. Next year, I'm going to spread out my squash plants a little more so there's less chance I'll lose track of the fruit like this!

  2. That zucchini's as big as Daniel is! I could tell who Kevin's related to — genes are incredible. I love the kitty pic — great furball expressions.

    1. I'm glad you appreciate a good kitty photo. ;)

      I agree that genes are really something. I continue to be fascinated by the ways Daniel resembles Jaymz and me (both in looks and personality), and then at the complexity of the factors that play together to make a person who s/he is.

  3. These are SO sweet! I cannot get over how big D is getting... even compared to that zuccini!! ;)

    1. Thank you! I know; he is growing SO fast. He's definitely not a baby anymore! In some ways I miss that stage, but in many others I find myself enjoying him more and more as he grows and becomes more autonomous.


Thanks for your comment! I love hearing from you.
