So we just got back from an amazing trip - full of family and celebration. Everything was absolutely amazing, so amazing that Preston and I realized that not only did we not take one picture the entire trip, but we didn't even pull the camera out of our suitcases - oops :-) We will try to get some pictures from other people.
Our trip to Kansas was absolutely perfect. We got to help celebrate a new, and beautiful marriage (congrats Taylor and Laura) and Callie got to meet another side of our family. We are so glad that she got to spend so much time with family and she, of course, LOVED being held by so many special people that love her! It was a wonderful celebration that we are so glad we could be a part of.
Callie is turning out to be quite the traveler. We tried really hard to keep her on Seattle time (which worked really well) and she slept in the hotel perfectly. The airplane trip was great. We got spoiled on the way there, as the flight was not totally full (apparently not much demand to Kansas City on a Thursday) so we got to take her car seat on the plane and she got her own seat - needless to say, she pretty much slept the whole way. The way back she sat on our laps and hardly made a peep (although didn't sleep super well).
Thank you to Katy and Preston for such an amazing time!

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.
