Leila says

I have to capture here though I can't find any videos some of the funny stuff Leila still says.

One of the favorites these days is "willst du beissen". It all started out when i brought home a bag of multi colored carrots from Trader Joe's one day around January 2016.

I was actually biking there and thought what could I bring home? So I looked around the store and the multi colored carrots looked really cool and new, and I thought the kids would love them because they are colored and not just boring orange. I ride my bike home and unpack the stuff and pull a purple one out to eat.
I see Leila sitting in a chair, so I walk over, stick it in her direction and ask "willst du beissen?". She got really quiet and I think she was grossed out because it looked so different. She ran off and I thought nothing of it.

Now she comes up to me and asks me "Warum hast du 'willst du beissen' gesagt?" and she is so freaked out about willst du beissen. She even singsongs "willst du willst du willst du beissen beissen beissen".

I've made up a "Multicolor carrot dude" set of stories where I talk about how the multi colored carrot dude is the purple carrot and he is the boss of the pack and their goal is to be eaten by the little girl.

Milo's Birthday - also Watson Leila Papa Tag

It was Milo's birthday yesterday, and Milo wanted to go to some Magic event in Balllard, so I took the other kids For a long walk to Cowen park and we took secret pathways and played tag hide and seek.

Leila has become an excellent hiker/walker at this point!

Orcas Island 2015

Orcas Island this year was once again awesome. Last trip for the Camper Van - we just sold it.

Great sunshine, a wonderful Ska band with horn section that played "Valerie" - that was wonderful. Solstice quirky as usual. Awesome views from Mount Constitution.

We also did a hike on the westside of the island, something we'd never done before that presented wonderful views of the patchy islands in the straight of San Juan de Fuca.
