Anyway, we planted basil, rosemary, Italian parsley, elysium, zinnias, snapdragons, tarragon and lavender.

About a month ago we stopped at Silver Creek Falls with our friend Shaun. We did a short loop and saw 4 beautiful waterfalls. It was one of the lovely Spring days that gets you really excited for Summer.
You want proof? See the rainbow? Fairies and dragons always live near waterfalls.
Shaun was really proud that he found the fairies and dragons. Jesse didn't see them, so he was disappointed.
We were talking to a fairy here.

A year ago today we got on a plane in Baku and flew all the way around the world to Washington DC. I can't believe we've been back state-side for a whole year. The time has flown by, but so much has happened.
We got to have a paid 'vacation' (including, but not limited to museums, landmarks, memorials and free surgery - yay Peace Corps!) in DC for over a month. I have had one clean MRI and need to schedule the next one. We came back to Eugene and hunted for jobs. Jesse went back to his old bank, and I went back to my old pre-school. We decided that it was time for me to go back to school. We found out our friends were going to have another baby (who was born last Friday, by the way... check him out here). Now I'm doing my first student teaching at my old high school, International High School (although I'm at a different campus) and just found out about my second placement at my old middle school, Cal Young.
The year has been so full, but has gone so quickly.
It's good to be home.
But we do miss Azerbaijan...

We went to the aquarium with Kenton, Katrina, Stu, Jaque and Finley at the end of February. I had free passes to the place from work, so it saved us $86! Yikes!
Yup, Clive Owen. It was a bit awkward having women run up to me all the time and want to have their picture taken with me, but I managed somehow.
No trip to the beach is complete without actually seeing the beach, so we made the trek down to play in the surf and sand.
Stu and Jacque. I think I'm going to turn this one into an inspirational poster. It will probably have a caption something like "FRIENDSHIP: I don't know how we made it out of that whale, but you made the whole trip worthwhile."
Oh, and I suppose we should also thank our good friends over at KitchenAid for inventing mixers.

I had to do it. But now I strangely know how Kanye Feels.
Main Objective: Facilitate feelings of mutual enjoyment and fulfillment through spending time together

Method of accomplishing objective: Dinner at Cafe Maroc, which is right next to school
