I think its official....

Anyone who lives in Seattle, I think, would agree with the statement that summer has officially started here. I'm really excited to take full advantage of my "at home" status. This will be the first summer I will have Callie 100% of the time at home and I am so excited! We have already been busy, but in the best possible way. 

We've had some extremely hot days which have resulted in many sprinklers, sponge fights, and water balloons. We decided to make some water balloon 'pinatas' and had fun breaking them.

I took the kids on a hike. I was a bit nervous, being on my own, as I was only carrying one in the back pack. Not sure how far Callie would go, I picked a simple 2  mile (round trip) hike and kept my fingers crossed. Callie did it and I was so proud of her!
Liam walked a bit of it and was so happy just being out and exploring. We had lunch at the river and he loved it!

We made it! Yay!!

We even tried to hug some gigantic trees

We've had a couple beach play dates and picnics.....Have I mentioned how much I love Washington....hiking, beach......everything!
We had a super fun picnic with Clara and Aunt Amy

Ha.....Liam looks thrilled

We hit the low tide to explore the tides and just play with Rachel, Cale, and Wyatt. It was a fun day!

Liam wasn't so sure about the seaweed but had to splash in the water. 

Not a bad spot to swing!

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.
