After hearing a lot about the potential dangers of drinking out of plastic containers, (you can read about it here or here) we decided that we would rather not take the chance and purchased some non-plastic bottles. I'd read about the SIGG in one of my design magazines and did some research on them before purchasing.

We are totally in love with our SIGG bottles! The first thing we noticed was how comfortable they are to drink from. It seems a little strange to say that about a bottle, but it is! They are lightweight, but durable - and they don't release anything into the water, gotta love that! I would recommend them to anyone looking for a reusable bottle.

6 months

hike, originally uploaded by eklektic*photos.

We celebrated our 6 month anniversary on Friday by going for our first hike. Armed with new hiking boots, lots of water and a picnic lunch, we headed up to Lower Lena Lake in the Olympic National Forest. It was a gorgeous day. We hiked in about 3.5 miles or so, spread out on top of a rock overlooking the ravine and the mountain beyond. There were only a few other people out that day, so we ate our lunch surround by so much beauty and the sounds of nature. It was a much needed escape.

We spent the rest of the weekend working on the house, sprinkled with a little play, a barbecue, and some movie watching. The weather could not have been any better. Sunshine, we are SO happy to see you!

Cinco de Mayo

Not only is it the 5th of May, but it is also the day baby Massey is scheduled to arrive. I am getting ready to head over to the hospital right now! I'm so excited, I could hardly sleep last night. I'm sure it will be a long day (especially for Shelly!). But oh my gosh. I can't wait to meet that new little person. I am so grateful that they have allowed me to be part of this process with them. It is truly a gift.

I'll post a photo of the baby as soon as I get one - as long as they don't mind.
