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!

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.
