Mothers Day Weekend

We had amazing weather for Mother's Day weekend and tried to enjoy every minute of the summer.

On Sunday, Callie and I ran the color run. A 5k through Seattle which involved a lot of dust and color. It was a lot of fun and  I was super proud of her and how she pushed herself.

Before the race. Shirts are still white and hair is still normal color. We ran with one of Callie's good friends and her mom. 
Bubbles! That was a highlight for Callie, she loved running through the bubbles. 
Done! Color and dust everywhere!

We spent Saturday with Katy and Dennis and explored Renton and a local beach and park.

Saturday was so beautiful that we actually went home and the kids ran in the sprinklers and played in the bathing suits all day.

We are now a family of 4 pretty impressive bike riders.

Sun River 2018

For mid winter break, we headed up to Sun River for the week. As always, it did not disappoint! The kids had a blast spending the week with Grandma and Grandpa, all their cousins, skiing, and playing in the snow. This year we started with no snow on the ground and ended with a blizzard that made driving home very tricky. Liam stayed home with Grandma while Callie and I skied. Although it is always hard to be left behind, he loves his Grandma so much and they had an absolute blast together. I'm also realizing that she took all the pictures so I have very few with her...major bummer!

We celebrated these 2 boys on this trip. 
When there is this many kids, you not only take over the whole run but there it is also very difficult to figure out which way to go....

Grandpa and his gang
Pretty soon we won't all fit on one couch.
Unfortunately our sister/dad ski day did not go as planned. Sarah took a spill the day before and was not able to ski with us for the rest of the trip


4 Years Old!

I can't believe that Liam is 4! It blows my mind how quickly everything is happening and it is hard for me to remember sometimes that he is a big boy and no longer a baby. He still gives the best hugs and the best snuggles but is fiercely independent. He doesn't like to try things until he knows that he can master them but when he is a master at them, he could not be more proud. He continues to loves trucks but has opened up his mind a bit to superheros and rescue bots. Outside continues to be his favorite place in the world and is always up for a hike, a bike ride, or just all around exploring. If he can be a helper in any way then his ready to help - he loves to shadow Preston anywhere and everywhere.
