emeraldm Loved this tree and it's big strong branches. If I were a bit more adventurous I'd climb right up and have a seat. I'll settle for a picture and I'll bring the kiddos next time. #nofilter, just a glorious Spring morning. 1w

emeraldm When the rain is pouring we have to remember its for the good of the green, green Pacific Northwest. Found a new favorite adventure spot. Yesterday's snake count was a bit much, so I ventured out elsewhere. Even found a Great Blue Heron. Happy beautiful Wednesday, everyone! 1w

emeraldm I hope I don't wake up to find out that I've gone viral.Pretty sure that someone put that snake in the bush right next to me so they could catch my reaction. On the flip side, I did see two bunnies. And 5 snakes. Too many snakes, not enough bunnies. The first snake caught me completely off guard. The second one wasn't as bad. The third one was in plain sight so that was fine. #4 was kinda meh. The grand finale was huge (for a garter) and right by the bathroom. Needless to say, I thought it would be better to use the other restroom, the indoor one. You know, because I didn't think the other one had soap, at least that's what I told my 4yo . 1w

emeraldm It was a great day today. Had some adventure time while Emily was in class. Then stayed outside all evening until past bedtime for the girls- all the neighbor kiddos and parents came out to play. Supposed to rain again until at least Monday, so we had to get our fill. Glad we did! I can already hear the raindrops. Hope you all made some great memories today. Oh! Plus I watched a mama deer and baby for the longest time on the trail. My heart is full. 2w

emeraldm Into the woods. #jj_oregon. Greens upon greens. Went for a walk while Emily was in nature class. Walked in the rain for about 2 hours, super duper far and saw nothing but a couple of ducks and a Ruby Kinglet or two. Made a wish in my head at 11:11 close to pick up time and Emily's classroom- and.... I finally saw a deer! Woohoo! Pictures to eventually follow. Great way to start the new month! 2w

emeraldm Started #earthhour2014 at 7PM- 9:45PM. Played The Game of Life board game (still as fun as when we were little, but a little crazy that I am actually married and have real kids now). Candlelight always makes me miss the Philippines and family and friends- when "brownouts" were a regular thing and the smell of kerosene lamps and mosquito incense (katol?) was thick as the humidity. But people were out and about and interacting and passing down stories not clicking like or posting. Thankful for technology that brings those worlds away right into your living room and blessed to be able to just plug in or unplug by choice. 3w

emeraldm So glad we were able to getaway last weekend. Rain is pouring, softball is cancelled and we're just chillaxin. Happy Weekend everyone! Earth hour tonight- we plan on starting at 7 or 7:30 so the girls can participate before bedtime. Here's to appreciating little things. #t3iadventures #jj_oregon #jj_beach 3w

emeraldm I'd can't wait to get a dog. As much as I love my boys (kitties), it's much easier to take a dog on an adventure with you. Until then, I'll settle for strangers and their four footed loves. #jj_forum_0826 : black and white silhouettes #jj_oregon | Seaside, OR . 1 of 2 days that it was dey this spring break. 3w

  •   heatherjandusay Where do you stay at #seasideoregon ? 3w
  •   emeraldm @heatherjandusay wherever the rate is good . We stayed at Holiday Inn Express this time around, we like the pool and breakfast. Beat western is also an option. Where did you guys stay? Did you drive anywhere else? 3w
  •   heatherjandusay @emeraldm We stayed at a new place this time around. Place called The Tides. It's way down at the end of the promenade, off the beaten path. Inexpensive, quiet, million dollar view! We just stayed in Seaside this time, since we were only there for the weekend. Already anticipating our next excursion there! 3w
