This year we kind of put off going to the pumpkin patch with hopes that Preston would get better and able to come. This weekend, we realized we couldn't put it off anymore so Callie and I packed ourselves into the car and headed out. It ended up being a bunch of fun but we were VERY wet afterwards. Callie had the privilege of riding home in the car in just her diaper.

Hmm....which one to choose?

She wasn't too keen on the inside of the pumpkin but eventually warmed up to the idea of it.

We decided to only empty one pumpkin out with her as she decided that raw pumpkin doesn't taste too bad - not a battle I was willing to fight. So we pulled the paints out and she painted her pumpkin.

Which she loved.....there wasn't much orange left by the time she was finished.

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.
