Happy Birthday!

We spent Callie's actual birthday together, just us as a family then invited everyone over for a bbq at our place. It was a lot of craziness but a lot of fun. Glad we had such great weather (and that it wasn't 90). The day started out with Callie and I heading to My Gym for a trial class for her. She LOVED it!!! Afterwards she slept for 3 hours (which is absolutely unheard of) and got ready for everyone to come play.
The boys bbq-ing and frying - yum!

Next year - a bigger sandbox is needed. We reached maximum capacity very quickly.

The birthday girl. (the dress didn't last very long but I tried)

Blake and Eli playing with the water table.

This picture should be before the other one - o well. Let's just say she knew just what to do when the cupcake was placed in front of her.

It's not a birthday until......

Preston opened presents with Callie.....

Let's just say, he was overwhelmed very quickly :-)

Loving her ladybug tent

We have been cutting Callie down on the pacifier - only using it for bedtime. Taylor was nice enough to donate a doll for her shopping cart. The doll just happened to have a fake pacifier on it. She saw that right away and it was like she struck gold! Needless to say, it is no longer on the doll.

She was a very happy and blessed birthday girl!

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.
