He really loved rocking in the hammock. I was singing rock-a-bye baby in the treetop while swinging him and it was great fun. :) 

We had a lovely day for a parade yesterday. 

And today we went to a friend's birthday party at Itasca state park. Ephraim got to stick his toes in the headwaters of the Mississippi.

Dreaming... :)

We are in the process of buying a house and I have been having fun dreaming of how to make it our own. Currently we are in a smallish one bedroom apartment and the house we are purchasing has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and much larger living spaces. It is a older mobile home with an addition, just fine for our first time buying. The golden part of the deal is that it is on 20 acres of lovely wooded land, and is half a mile away from my sister and family. Since we don't exactly need 4 bedrooms at this point I have plans for a craft room. A yellow one. So I painted this. It's not done yet. :)
