Summer fun!

Well, summer finally arrived with a bang and we have taken every opportunity to enjoy it. We've hit the zoo, the beach, the park, and everything in between. Although I realize I didn't seem to take pictures from most of what we've done, here are some things that I have been able to capture:
We had an unexpected longer visit from Pat this summer. He seemed to LOVE Callie - and she of course, was smitten herself.

He introduced her to the video game controller - a pro in the making

Zoo trip with Taylor and Blake - I love that we put Taylor in charge of making sure Blake didn't fall out of the shark's mouth - not a good idea looking back on it :-)

She dug the shark tank

And this was her favorite - it also prompted us to have to drive home from the zoo with just a diaper. She got absolutely soaked (and we had a bit of a melt down when I told her we had to leave the water)

When I had my classroom of 24 responsible-ish fourth graders, I refused to paint with them (not even paint brushes) because of the mess that came with it but for some reason I have no problem doing it with one 11 month old little girl.....really?!

I think it's because of happy is she?!

We had a bit of a summer heat wave and introduced Callie to the Knowles tradition  of popcicles - anytime, all the time. She took to them like a pig in mud - watch out Uncle Rick!

We had a few unexpected days home sick with a fever. Of course, I got a bit stir crazy, she got a bit stir crazy - solution? Make the ultimate tunnel fort. Great idea? Yes, until the 11 month old little girl realizes how fun it is to jump on the pillows - one goes down, they all go down.

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.
