A couple weeks ago, Ro and I met up with Val, her kids Lauren & Ben, and Courtney & one of her little son’s Hudson at the park. I used to teach with them at Smith and it was fun to catch up with them. The weather wasn’t too great but I thought I’d try and put Rowan in a swing for the first time. He loved it!
Hopefully we’ll have plenty more playdates at the park this summer, sans coats!

Rowan had his first Syttende Mai (17th of May- Norwegian Independence Day) celebration. There is a huge parade in Ballard every year and Norskie’s from all over come to take part in music, food, and fun!
I’ve gone since I was a little girl, so it’s fun to carry on the tradition. The parade doesn’t start until 6 PM which is around Ro’s bedtime but he did really well.
