A Day Without a Plan

I'm taking a break from Portland posting before I forget about how we celebrated Independence Day! It ended up being a really great day so I want to remember it.

We walked a lot.

We made burgers at home.

We laid on a blanket in the park. I made a failed attempt at a self-portrait.


When I got bored, I decorated Levi's hat... while whistling?

He hid his face in shame when I asked him to try it on and quickly removed all the flowers after this picture was taken.

We took the bus to the movies and saw Midnight in Paris. It's the best movie I've seen this year. I liked it better than Tangled even! GO SEE IT NOW.

After coming out of the movies, we ran to the deserted harbor to watch fireworks from 7 different cities all around us.

We skipped the bus home and just walked, stopping to get champagne cocktails at a restaurant near our house.

We played with sparklers.



Pretty good for a day that had no plans!!


  1. ah i love this post. esp your self portrait. AND midnight in paris. i want to see it again right now.

  2. I love days that just unfold naturally! That first photo is just beautiful. And I keep hearing about how fantastic Midnight In Paris is. Must see soon!

  3. LOL - the picture of Levi wearing the hat is hilarious! We also saw Midnight in Paris! I totally agree, it's an awesome movie! And it's in Paris. Extra points just for that!
