A Weekend Away

This weekend we headed up to Hoodsport. We were lucky enough to have the Wagners come up to spend the weekend with us. It was a perfect weekend of relaxation - it was nothing but family; no work, no worries, just kids, good food and a Superbowl game.
Callie was in heaven having the Wagner boys around her for the weekend.
We spent some time outside digging

We also went for the usual walk in the woods - Eli was our fearless leader

I love this picture because Eli is working so hard climbing over the fallen tree - while Pete, Wyatt, Rachel and Cale are just walking around it

There were many fallen trees on the path

Saturday we made the mistake of allowing Callie to bring the shovel with her on the walk. We stopped every 10 feet or so to dig. Luckily the boys were super patient with her.

Cheese! (I don't think I'd ever be able to say no to that face - good luck Rachel!)

We tried to make very kid friendly meals, so our meal on Saturday was homemade pizza. Here's the kids spreading the sauce.

There were multiple horse rides around the room. Then the horse got sick and needed to be checked before moving on (in other words, the adults were tired of it :-))

Patiently waiting for breakfast

Callie loved spending time with Cale - she laid down to help entertain him anytime she noticed Rachel changing his diaper - which often lead to smothering hugs....sorry Cale!

Superbowl, of course, means yummy snacks. Callie had her first taste of guacamole and chips - let's just say she was a fan.

Football watching sure is exhausting, isn't it Cale?

There was a lot of coloring that happened

The kids reading a book together - super cute! Eli read and asked about the animals and Callie and Wyatt would point them out

More horse riding. That was cowboy Wyatt with his lasso - he caught a wild motorcycle. Callie was fishing. Ahh...the imagination!

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
