Urban momma on a hay ride

You know the days when you feel like the best part of being a mom is, being a kids again? This was one of those days. Beautiful fall weather. Anjali and I set out to Sauvie Island Farm's pumpkin patch. I laid out on the hay during the hay ride and almost took a nap. She had so much fun running through the corn maze and climbing the hay pyramid. And all the way out and back we sang along with this awesome Ladybug One CD.

Our kitchen is FINALLY done

And it is so yummy! We were fortunate to have a relatively smooth remodeling experience and were happy with our contractor and learned so much along the way like what is a linear and that nothing you want is ever in stock! More photos here

Sixteen years and nine month later... on September 17th I was sworn is as a US citizen. Quite frankly it was such a long time coming, I didn't make much of a big deal of the whole thing. Years of lawyers fees, begging for European visas, dealing with the Sri Lankan embassy and govt bureaucracy is over!

There were 70 new citizens from 35 countries and that was quite something to witness. Everyone from Iran to New Zealand. We celebrated with a dinner by the Willamette river waterfront. Now I can fully exercise my rights of citizenship except for running for president!
