Spring Break

We ended up with amazing weather for spring break this year, and we tried to enjoy every moment of it. Callie, Liam and I lucked out by having Maya the whole week and we took her on as many adventures as possible. We hit the beach and splashed around in our clothes, we went to the children's museum, we went swimming and tried to hit as many parks as possible. Friday we were joined by Sarah and Laurel and they introduced us to some pretty cool tide pools. We saw an octopus, huge crabs, many starfish, and tons of other little creatures. Overall, an amazing spring break that makes me super excited for summer to start.

They were taking turns taking X-rays of each other. They loved being the doctor for the other.

The ambulance was a big hit for Liam

They climbed to the top of the eagles nest

Liam loved this. He build a parachute out of coffee filters and then put it inside a tube full of wind. 

She has worn her Easter ears everyday since Easter....

Picnic at the beach. 

Just being goofy with Daddy's hat

The park at Callie's school is pretty amazing. I didn't let Liam bring his bike so he mowed the turf while the girls rode around.

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
