Dallas, "Camping", and New Carpet!

It seems that Preston and I have had a VERY busy month.

Preston spent about a week in Dallas visiting family and enjoying the heat - ha! He got to spend some quality time with his grandmother, aunt/uncle, and cousisns. I am very sad that I missed the trip but there is something about delivering a baby on an airplane that is really not very appealing to me.

 Can you tell if they're related??
 So I hear, when the sun comes out (haven't seen much of it in Seattle this summer - in fact, is it even summer?!), you get to see some amazing sunsets
Cousins Micah, Hope, Mary, and Mia. 
Dad and Cousin Anna

Aunt Vicky, Uncle Jim, Grandmother Graham, Preston

Preston and Grandmother Graham.  Only 96 years young!! 

This year, for our annual girls camping trip - I was able to talk the ladies (although, I have to say, it didn't take much convincing) into renting a cabin. We spent a few days up at Lake Kachess and although the weather didn't fully cooperate - none of us were really complaining. We spent four days laying next to the lake, playing games, and laughing! Not sure if we are ever going to really go back to real camping after our experience this year.
In an effort to make ourselves feel better about "camping" - we decided to call this our wooden tent - and it was fabulous!
We treated ourselves to a night of fondue to celebrate Beth's upcoming wedding - camping has never tasted better!

After the camping trip - I got to come home to a house with all new carpet! What a difference a little carpet pad makes - Pres was a major trooper as he had to do everything (moving the small things, trapping the cats) without me.....and I didn't hear one complaint! Best husband ever!

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


Husky Game

UW recently had a Girl Scout night at one of the Husky games. Preston was out hunting so I took the kiddos by myself (and met Sarah and Rey there). It went surprisingly well - especially since the game ended up being a 7:30 pm game. Luckily Liam napped the whole way there and was able to rally when it was game time. Callie's highlights of the game was being there with her cousins, the cheerleaders, and the marching band. She wasn't too interested in the football aspect. 
Although the stadium was not loud, Liam insisted on wearing headphones. He didn't take them off once and even fell asleep with them on in the car. 

Enthralled with the marching band
Hopefully some future Huskies!


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