This year we headed over to Amy's to celebrate Halloween. She has the perfect neighborhood for trick or treating. Callie loved being around all the other kids and was very content to be outside walking around. I didn't take her up to the houses at the beginning but she started to complain when all the other kids were leaving her. She she started up to the houses with the other kids - although she had some pretty weird looks for the people who were trying to give her candy - needless to say - very happy we didn't come home with any candy. Overall it was a pretty good night, diaper rash and all! (She just recently found a love for oranges, and I didn't think too much about giving her them everyday that is until she came home from daycare on Halloween with raging diaper rash. A bit whiny that night, but really, who wouldn't be?!)
I forgot my camera, so Shauna ended up being the photographer for the night - sorry forgot to tell you Shauna!
Callie's favorite books are the Olivia books so she decided to be Olivia for Halloween.
At her daycare, after nap time they get all the kids dressed in their costumes then head out to the business park and have a Halloween parade. Callie had a blast!
They put her dress on backwards at daycare BUT I was not going to say anything - I would not like to try to get 12 toddlers all dressed at the same time!

This is Callie's favorite teacher, Miss Alycia. Callie loves her! When the transition to the toddler room was happening, Callie leaned a lot of Alycia and we are so appreciative of how much love she gets back from her!

The trick or treating gang

Preston still wasn't feeling up for a night out so it was just mommy and Callie. We sure missed him!

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
