Papa and his dotsya.

I love watching these two play. The way she looks up at him from time to time to see if he's watching what she's doing. The way she copies everything he does. I always thought that girls would try to be like their moms, but this one wants to be like her daddy. :)

Eating at home.

BBQ pulled pork pizza. Earlier in the week i made a giant batch of pulled pork (which was delicious.) and we were eating sandwiches for a couple days. Finally with the leftovers i made this pizza and it was delicious as well. 
 Homemade burgers. Always taste good!
 Chicken lettuce wraps. I was trying to recreate PF Chang's lettuce wraps using this recipe. They tasted really good and fresh.

"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013."

Audrey: A new smile and a new friend. She found this giant plastic duck at an Asian market and insisted that we take it home. She seems to love it almost as much as her other ducky. :)

Visiting Remlinger Farms.

Last weekend we spent the day at Remlinger Farms in Carnation, WA with Viktor's sister and her family. We had to have Audrey skip her nap to go there, and when we arrived she was so cranky! It was a bit of a mistake.. But she started to cheer up, especially after getting to ride a little horsie! We rode the train, pet the animals, jumped in a bouncy mushroom and went on a couple of kiddie rides. (Well, Audrey and Viktor did. All the rides frowned upon pregnant woman. Boo!) It was a very hot day, but we had a great time!

Eating at home.

 Salmon salad. I've long been nervous about cooking salmon because its spendy and i overcook it a lot. But this salad was really tasty. I just pan fried it and put it on top of some boiled potatoes, eggs and arugula.
Chicken parmesan. Spaghetti noodles topped with tomato sauce (from a jar) and pan fried chicken with mozzarella melted on top.
 Roasted pork tenderloin and potatoes w/heirloom tomatoes. Yum. I used this recipe for the pork, and it was the most juicy and tender thing I have ever ate. Really good. (But i just roasted it in the oven instead of grilling.)
