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!

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.

The gang!

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

Summer Fun

As I'm getting ready to post this, I realize that I was very bad about taking pictures this summer. None of these pictures capture all of the fun that we had. We hiked, camped, played, and stayed as busy as possible. 
Liam loves his sister so much!
Using a log as a boat - trying his best not to get wet :)
Playground fun
We spent a lot of this summer at the rock climbing gym. They both seem to love it.
Callie married Captain America this summer
This summer we tried the water park down the hill from us with some friends. I was holding off on going because I wasn't sure how I would be able to watch both kiddos and feel that they are safe but it ended up being so much fun and they kids did fabulous. 

One of the hikes we did this summer was to the natural water slides. The kids spent HOURS in the freezing cold water.

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
