A Weekend Away

We took full advantage of the one weekend this month that we had nothing planned....totally ignored our outdoor to-do lists, our indoor must do list, and all other chores we deemed not important.....and headed up to our place at Hoodsport. We ended up with some very nice, but very cold weather. Although that didn't stop us from spending the whole time outside exploring and digging.
My favorite thing, by far, about our place up there is that there is nothing that we HAVE to do. Instead it becomes how can be best spend the time together....
Here's some pics from our relaxing.....perfect.....weekend!

Callie has started mimicking her teachers and "reading" books to her baby. She will sit in front of them, and babble for a bit, then turn the book around to show the pictures. It is very cute!

We ended up with a beautiful Saturday so we pulled her table out to the deck and she painted some Easter eggs. Quite the view that artist has!

She is ALWAYS the happiest outside

Preston installed some outdoor speakers and Callie was more than willing to help - she was in charge of the wire.....I think she might take after me - ha!

We woke up to a beautiful sunrise on Sunday so decided to hit the road and head up to Staircase and Lake Cushman

She fell in love with this hat there and when we were driving home, she had a complete meltdown about us leaving it there - she won! We drove home with her in her pajamas and a monkey hat. A battle I decided was totally not worth fighting!

We spent a lot of time throwing rocks into the lake

Throwing rocks very quickly turned into splashing in the water. We drove home with no pants - o well!

Throwing even more rocks

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.
