The Quotidian (18. 4. 16)

Quotidian: daily, usual, or customary;
everyday; ordinary; commonplace.

A Tradition.

I made them stop for a photo.

A wonderful surprise!


A contribution.

They accumulate so quickly these days. 
(The permanently silent dishwasher just keeps the space filled.)

Emma's ongoing project.

Off on an adventure!

We were taken....and subsequently worried.

Have you ever??

At the Ballard Locks.
(If you go, park in the regular parking...don't say I didn't warn you!)


Happy Monday, Y'all!
With Love, Camille

Katy said...

Great photos!!! :) I enjoy looking at all of them!

I must admit, how were you taken with the parking? I don't get it?

Maryann said...

Love the photot. We have a few parking places like that here as well, although I have to admit the folding of the paper money and pushing it in with a key is a new one. So many of the lots and spaces here don't even take money anymore, they take credit cards only. Your children are growing up so quickly, spring is here! Be blessed, Hugs

Jill said...

Love when you post lots of pictures and these are all great! Hope you have a wonderful week.


Sandi said...

Happy Monday!

What on Earth is that big sphere thing? It looks like EPCOT center.

Debbie Harris said...

Hi Camille~~I love looking at your beautiful family and hearing of your days with them.
Happy 19th Birthday!
I chuckled at you "abandoned" vacuum. :)
The Lord bless you~`

Sandy said...

Thanks for sharing your great photos on your blog, Camille!

Happy Birthday Calvin!! Hugs!


Esther said...

Happy Birthday Calvin! Hope it was great! I have to admit that I have never seen a parking meter quite like that! I would have been nervous too! I love the pictures downtown. Were you on a water taxi to get that pic under the bridge? Looked like such a beautiful day, so glad you enjoyed it!

Jennifer Jo said...

I love it how your kids go on adventures together. It's so special when siblings genuinely enjoy each other.

Camille said...

Katy ~ Thank you, sweet friend. Regarding the parking: it was super expensive and a little bit lonely...the regular parking lot had warnings about car break-ins and was more populated for much less $$. Live and learn. Hugs! :)

Maryann ~ That parking payment system was the craziest I'd ever seen...too funny! Thank you for stopping by my friend....hugs to you! :)

Jill ~ Thank you for your sweet words! Have a lovely week setting up your new home. Hugs. :)

Sandi ~ It's the Science World building in Vancouver, BC. It was built for the World Exposition Fair that was hosted here in 1986. I'd never compared it to the one at EPCOT...but, you are right, it does look similar. Hugs to you! :)

Debbie ~ Thank you, sweet friend. That abandoned vacuum was eventually returned to and the job completed....the kiddo who left it there will remain anonymous. Hugs! :)

Sandy ~ Thank you so much my friend! Hugs all around to all of you! :)

Esther ~ I am so glad you understood me my friend. And, no...we were on a walkway on the other side of the locks at Ballard, WA. Emma snapped that shot and I only noticed after we were home. The day was wonderful...the Lord is so very good to us, isn't He? Hugs! :)

Jennifer Jo ~ It's a tradition to have a family day on each of their birthdays...so, that's what precipitated that particular adventure. But, you are right...it is a great blessing to have these special times together. Hugs to you! :)

With Love,

Heather said...

Happy Birthday, Calvin!
Love the abandoned vacuum photo--so typical of this house! ha ha!
Those kids of yours look so tall in the kitchen now, Camille!
Missed visiting lately :)

Cheesemakin' Mamma said...

Wow! 19 years old. Can it be? Looks like you all have been keeping busy! I'm so thankful for our new dishwasher. I hope you are able to get one soon. They are such time savers, however, washing dishes can be therapy and a great way to connect with each other, too. Have a great week, my friend!

Camille said...

Heather ~ So lovely to hear from you...as always! Yes, the kids are growing up, up, up! The boys are past the 6'1" mark now and Emma is nearly 5'7"....it's crazy! Hugs to you. :)

Jackie ~ For the longest time, I really felt it if the dishwasher was out of commission, but, this time around, it has not been too traumatic. Thank you for your kind offer to chip in when you are here....that shouldn't be necessary. The countdown is on...just a little over three more months! Hugs. :)

With Love,
