Life is precious. Our life is blessed. And we have chosen to spend it together.

laughing boy

He laid behind me on the couch giggling, laughing, and standing up to my shoulder.  I laughed with him and tried to capture it.  I seriously love this boy.

Pumpkin Patch 2013

A beautiful October day got the Bournes out of the city and onto the farm.  In search of pumpkins we ventured out to Issaquah to Fox Hollow Farm.  We met biting ponies, pygmy goats, furry feet chickens, horses back sides, and adorable kittens.  Oh, and a peacock came out to say goodbye just as we were leaving.  Turns out we were the parents with the baby wipes cleaning Nolan's hands after he touched just about anything.  But I make no apologies for it.  Chicken poop is gross!  With our germ free hands we came home with a pumpkin a piece and countless memories.  My personal almost getting my leg bit by a pony, Nolan letting a goat nibble on his overalls, and Matt almost getting soaked by an angry horse attempting to dump his bucket of water.  Apparently farm animals can smell city folk from a mile away.  Family day in the sun was worth all the warning signs that we may not have been welcome at the farm.

Pictures of Nolan in a Turkey hat...priceless

Bloggable moments

I wish I had time and witty things to add to this blog once a week...not the trending once a month. just seems to get in the way.  Then I realized that's not a bad thing, it means we are out there living.  So here is a glimpse at the last few weeks in the Bourne house.  This does not include the stomach bug that went around the family, my pager going off, or me renewing our tabs.  Trying to keep it positive people.
