what's on L's phone?!

we babysat little Isla the other day. it was too much fun! also, note Gemsie being a drama queen, per usual. 



these two ladies both have the pear ruffle butt bloomers from the Gap. Sandi and i both got them when they were on final clearance for $2! look at those little booties. too cute. 



facetiming with Lola. 



i joined a second book club and this is where the meeting was--I MEAN OMG. look at that view!  



we had a middle-of-the-day bath because somebody took off her poopy diaper and tossed it about the room while she was supposed to be napping.  



so emo while sipping her water. 


Mel and i took a road trip with the babies to Yakima! she went to her friend's house and Gem and i spent the day with my parents. it was so fun! and these littles were troopers.


 pals


naked blackberry picking and eating.  



Bear came to town to help install our new blinds (DAMN YOU CLEO) and refinish our deck. Gemstone was thrilled to take a pretend drive in his car.



my posse. 



playing hockey with a graham cracker in her mouth.  



BIG HUGS 



playing piano. 
(my parents bought her this backpack for her birthday and she has little farm stuffed animals in it. she refuses to take it off and walks around the house chanting "bockbock" all day hahha). 



beach. 



looking too much like a grown up.  



prepared for fall in Seattle! warm boots and a swimsuit. you just never know what to expect.  



for Mel's birthday a bunch of gals took a sewing class and made tote bags. it was totes fun! (so sorry for the stupid pun).



installing the childproof locks on the cabinets (which is one GIANT pain in the ass by the way). while doing so, Gemsie Bear was playing with the screwdriver and all of the things that the locks are supposed to keep her away from. aye yi yi. also, we bought those magnetic ones. and they're great. except yesterday i accidentally locked the only magic magnetic key inside of the cabinet. #omgidiot. if you get these cabinet locks, you should probably buy 8 magic keys.  



the lady at PetSmart who cuts Cleo's toenails matched their bows.  



i adore beach treasures. i have them all around our house. 



Gemmaberry! not sure why i have a mullet in this pic. 



 Grandma and Grandpa came to visit! 



out to Brunch at Trellis in Kirkland.  



we put Gemma in her birthday dress since Grandma and Grandpa couldn't make it to her party. i kind of want her to wear this dress everyday until it doesn't fit anymore. it's the sweetest little dress. 



love for Cleo too. 



after Grandma and Grandpa left, we headed over to Safeco field to meet Nannie & Bear and my sisters to celebrate sister M's bday. and BEHOLD! my best ever photobomb. 



beach day with momfriends.  



when Gemma hits/bites/kicks/pinches/slaps/etc., she has to have a time out on the Naughty Mat. she spends about 30 seconds sitting there being embarrassed, then stands up and gives a hug to her victim. 


our Wednesday favorites! love these girls.

family time

the fabulous Kate took some family pics of us Hansens. and here they are. we love them. which is a very narcissistic thing to say. but shut up whatever, it's true. Kate used to live in Seattle but now she lives in Texas. so, if you live in Texas, you should probably hire her. because she's pretty rad.

what's on L's phone?!

breakfast! eggs and blackberries (picked in our driveway!!) and she's eating with a spork. such a grown-up. 



these two pals on the beach. 



she looks so much like JJ here. twinzzzzz. 



beach day with Sandi & Isla 



2 little girls enjoying the sun and sand. 



she walked over there to take a poop. only i could smell it from where i was sitting. #foolingnoone 



my Dad asked me to take his car back to Seattle to the dealership to be serviced. i complained because his car is a huge beast. only now i've gotten used to it. it's like an effing PRIVATE JET. it's such a smooth ride. AND HE HAS SIRIUS RADIO!! ummm HELLO Cocks with P. and Dr. Laura. now i don't want to give his car back. it's fancy. anyway, we took his car to be serviced and all of the people wearing suits, sitting in leather recliners simultaneously watching CNN and making business calls looked at us like we were clowns. which we kind of were. a woman, her vocal child and a dog. just hanging out in the Lexus dealership. we did not belong. they were practically shouting as us "GET OUT OF HERE PEASANTS."



this one's growing molars. one of them was real bloody when it was coming in. and growing molars is wayyyy worse than growing front teeth. poor little gal. she's been having trouble going to sleep. twice last week she got to get out of bed and hang out with Mom & Dad until 9 p.m. 



are you guys sick of my beach pics yet?! SORRY I'M NOT SORRY. #summerforeverbitches 



my bff 



you guys. i was climbing into bed when this GIANT ASS SPIDER caught my eye. ohhhh emmmmm geeeee. i screamed. I SCREAMED. it practically tried to eat me. for 10 minutes JJ and i argued over whose job it was to kill it (he said since it was on my side, it was my job. i said he is the man and it's his job). i was the one who took the wad of toilet paper and smashed him. but then i was afraid to lift up my hand. just in case i didn't really smash him and he ran away into the deep dusty depths of my under-the-bed region only to terrify me at a later date. so after another 5 minutes of holding the toilet paper over the spider, i convinced JJ that i had done the hard part and that he had to finish the job. we are a coupla pansies. anyway, it was dead. we flushed it once and for all. then we had a really hard time falling to sleep that night. all we kept picturing was that spider. that. effing. spider. 



we went to the park in pajamas! and then Gemmie fell and hit her chin and bit her tongue and there was blood everywhere. dramatic is how we do things around here. 



holding hands at ikea with her buddy. so sweet. 



RAISE THE ROOF 



swinging. 



playing in a basket with her animal friends. 



the water frogs at U Village. they got JJ in the butt and i laughed at him. then they got me in the butt and he laughed at me. and obviously they got Gemma in the butt. so we all looked like we peed our pants. sneaky assholes, those frogs.  



 glassy babies and the pink Jane Austen book set! birthday presents from my Mom & Dad. THANKS MOM AND DAD LOVE YAAAAA 



playin.
