Easter Weekend

We had a very exciting Easter weekend. Washington ended up with some amazing weather and we spent the whole weekend outside in some form or another. For Easter the Easter bunny left a trail of eggs for Callie to follow to find her hidden Easter basket then we headed out to church.
From church we headed down to my parents house to enjoy some amazing sunshine.
Look mom! The Easter bunny brought me new sunglasses and a camera! It's what I always wanted! (and yes, she is wearing Santa pajamas)

We got a quick family shot in before we got dirty!

And we attempted a Callie shot - we thought putting her next to the flowers would be a pretty picture, instead they ended up just being a massive distraction! O well

While Callie was napping we filled a couple (pretty big understatement) eggs and hid them out in the yard! I think Grandpa will be finding them for the next year. There were A LOT of eggs.

Waking up from naps and cuddling with Grandma

Bubbles were by far a highlight of the day

Hunting for eggs - her Easter shoes didn't last very long - ha! Went back to our old croc standbys

Maya and Bennett searching for the eggs! They did a good job leaving some for their younger cousins

Overall, this is a very successful cousin shot - we are just happy if they are all sitting next to each other and not crying....we will work on looking at the camera another time!

More egg hunting

Playing with the giant balls outside

Being able to blow the bubbles by herself was a highlight for Callie - she opted out of the dying of eggs and other activities just to blow more bubbles

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.
