Play doh and pizza

It's been a while since my last post....sorry! We have been keeping ourselves very busy since the rush and excitement of the holidays. One of Callie's favorite things is to help cook and we have been getting very creative on ways to do that. She spent a night with grandma and grandpa awhile back and ever since that night away we have had to give up our step stool to her.
We recently travelled to jesslyns house. She was in absolute heaven - dogs, llamas, alpacas, chickens, and play doh. How much better can it get than that?! I didn't get any pictures of her petting the llamas or alpacas but it is a bit frightening to me how fearless she is around animals. She did not hesitate one bit to go pet the alpacas - I was more timid than her!
Here's some shots of her making the play doh:
Mixing....mixing....mixing - one of her favorite things to do

When cooking with Callie, you have to give everything up to her. She will not let you do anything without her helping or doing it.
I can't tell - are you having fun?

We then introduced Preston to homemade pizza. Callie had an absolute blast. Surprisingly she didn't try to eat any of the toppings until we got to the black olives, then we couldn't stop her.

Adding the pepperoni - there was a large pile of pepperoni in one spot on her pizza

Hmm....these are good mom, how come I've never had them before?

Last but not least, the cheese. Her favorite!

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
