The fresh pasta is SO easy. It can easily be frozen for later use. Ang and I learned how to make pasta on our trip to Tuscany in September 2010. Although you don't REALLY need a pasta roller, it is a lot easier if you have one. Our favorite pasta though is rolled out with the pasta roller and then hand cut into thick tagliatelle pasta. This tutorial is a great resource to follow. It's important to use really fresh eggs if possible.

Check out some highlights from weekly Saturday morning Dad-time. Josie is really enjoying giving these toys a workout. Notice the supervision by "cousin" Stewie.
Then, around mid-day, Dad and Josie will go for a walk with Mom to say hi at our new & improved fire station. Last time these guys visited with Josie, it was at our place on her birthday!

Then spring came and I wanted to run again. I couldn't find time to run without Josie. I started to find things in the Buzz that bothered me. The sun canopy wasn't big enough, it was heavy, it was harder to turn. Rob being the Criagslist connoisseur that he is found a used Bob Revolution for us. After one use we are in love. The Quinny will likely make it's way onto Craigslist soon.
Before having a baby, we were looking for different capabilities in a stroller. Josie actually didn't go into the stroller at all until she was 4 months old. We carried her everywhere, so that changed a lot for what we needed in a stroller. So far the only "con" of the BOB is that the seat doesn't seem as comfortable as the Quinny. Otherwise everything else is great. And Oh yeah, and I can run again! Here is Josie enjoying a ride in the BOB on our Mother's day 6 mile walk.

We enjoyed the wonderful weather both Saturday and Sunday, and tried to spend as much time outdoors as possible. That included cutting the grass and a little playtime under a makeshift canopy on the deck.

It's so fun to watch the daily sun following they do. Stewie especially. She will find the sun - lay in the sun - fall asleep in the sun - wake up. Notice the sun has moved - gets up and moved to the new sun spot - and does it all over again. I thought of her when this week's focus was still life. Here is a picture of her enjoying the sun this morning.
