Let's Call it What it is......

A problem......!!!!
So, we take these great trips, spent fantastic weekends away from home, and take fun day trips making sure we pack the camera to capture the fun times. Yet, not once do we ever take the camera out of its bag and take a picture.
We just spent last weekend down in Vancouver and had a wonderful, relaxing visit. Callie slept better than she has ever slept anywhere (which was VERY nice). She got to experience her very first "Graham taco party" (although I didn't let her taste it), ate pancakes for the first time (and loved them!), and got to spend time with her grandma, grandpa, and aunt Kristine. Of course, we took no pictures so you will have to take my word for it :-)
I got some pictures from our trip to Pennsylvania (thanks grandma, Aunt Kay and Aunt Marty) and wanted to post a few.
Fun times on the plane

Cousin Caleb with Granny playing Where's the Baby

Callie is a bit into touching faces lately

We tried VERY hard to get all three cousins to sit together - this was the best we could do! Notice the 2 adult hands that are pushing 2 babies back into the chair

Adalyn cuddling with her mommy

Laurel wasn't feeling too well on the trip so she was all snuggles

Look at those beautiful brown eyes

There was a bit of a stomach flu going around so a few of us decided to try to escape the sick and we drove out to Jack's farm to see the cows. It was really exciting because a new baby was just born.

Callie hanging with Aunt Kay

Callie LOVED Uncle Doug and they were rarely seen without eachother

Hanging with Uncle Paul - Callie was VERY spoiled on this trip

Hanging with Grandpa

Four generations - too bad Callie was more interested in her foot than the picture

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. 
More playground fun

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
