A Not So Daily Dose of Daisy
Master of living a random, unpredictable life.

When you stop blogging for a while it is amazingly hard to catch back up. I looked through our May memories and this is what I came up with. Sorry if this page takes longer than normal to load but it will be worth it. This is our month in .gif files! We spend a lot […]


My sister and her family escaped the cold of the Ann Arbor-ish Michigan area to spend the week with us here in San Antonio. I love having visitors and they are no exception. I love the sound of a busy house. Over the past week we spent a lot of time in the pool, hot […]


JP and I spent the last few days on the Oregon Coast with some of his family. Marlene wanted to rent a house on the coast for a few days to celebrate her birthday. We rented a beautiful house on the ocean just outside of Seaside, OR. JP and I flew in on the last […]

Stevie's first catch of the day.

This morning Lily, Stephanie and I picked up the kids from my brother James’ house in West Seattle. Our destination was the Olympic Peninsula to go sand dollar hunting and to visit the Olympic Game Farm. What a fun day! Check out the pictures below.

My niece Ayla came to visit us here in Texas for a few days from the Portland, OR area. The weather here and the weather there are two completely different things… she described it as HOT. We spent a lot of time in the pool. Her friend Pam drove down from Austin and joined in […]

My sister-in-law Joy tagged me in this picture today. I really think I need to take a trip to Alberta, Canada!


Back in June 2010 I wrote a quick blog post about how excited I was to be moving to a house with a porch swing. Look how excited I was that day! So fast forward four years and I am just as happy. We have made a lot of memories on that swing over the […]

This morning I called my brother before I left Seattle and asked him to go out to breakfast with us. This is my brother James and I. The drive from Seattle to Portland is pretty boring. It is even more boring when you drive it by yourself. I stop so many times when I do […]


My sister Vanessa has been a blogger since February 2008 and I have followed her since probably her first post. Now that I am thinking about it she might have been my blogging inspiration… who knows? If you go to Robertson Family Update you can check out what she has been up to. Vanessa and […]

Have you ever wanted to join a biker gang? Now is your chance. Well… if you live in Portland, OR then now is your chance. You don’t even need your own bike because we can borrow them from Hotel Monaco. Today around noon my niece Ayla and I set out on what ended up being […]


This morning my niece Ayla met me at the hotel and then we headed out for a Portland adventure. Our original plan was to use the loaner bikes that the Kimpton Hotel has for guests but we decided it was a little to cold and rainy for that so instead we got in the car. […]

The reason for our trip to Camano Island was because JP’s mom Marlene wanted us to be at the store with them when they upgraded their cell phones. Keep in mind that they have been eligible for an upgrade for 8 years…. yes, 8 years! So we went with them to the Verizon store with […]

Every year my sister Vanessa makes a calendar full of pictures from the previous year and send them out to all of my brothers and sisters. Actually… I am not sure if she sends them to all of us but at least most of us. She might even send them to nieces and nephews… I […]

Early this morning JP and I got on a flight from San Antonio, TX to Detroit, MI to go see some family and watch them make pierogi. Every year they get together and make pierogi to eat for Christmas. Usually when you show up for the party you are supposed to bring a filling to […]

Scariest picture I have ever taken. Parasailing!

A couple of months ago when we started talking about Thanksgiving week Lily convinced us that we needed to go on a family vacation somewhere warm that week. San Antonio is usually pretty warm still in November but something crazy happened this year. Look at the temperature as we headed to the airport this morning. […]
