Random spring fun

I'm realizing how bad I have been about keeping up with things. You'd think I'd have more time with Callie in school but time seems to slip away from me. We've had a busy couple of months...trying to make the most of the weather and enjoy spring even though it has yet to arrive.

Everyone needs a little fancy in their life.....Grandma took us to see Fancy Nancy at the Tacoma Musical Playhouse. I love Fancy Nancy and the show did not disappoint. Super fun time with the girls and grandma.
I love how our 3 girls have 3 very distinct and very different personalities and perspectives on what it means to be fancy!


We also hit up the spring fair when it was in town with Grandma and Grandpa. I actually seem to prefer the spring fair over the big fall fair. I love how small the spring fair is, so much less overwhelming for me. After we visited the animals and the rides we watched "slamfest". It is safe to say that I had no idea what I was getting into - a new experience, something that I did not expect, and something I still don't have words for. Needless to say, Liam loved it (and I am pretty sure Grandpa enjoyed it as much as him). 


The show was very late - it didn't actually start until bedtime. Liam had no problem with it but I think Callie struggled to keep herself awake :)

Cars, cars, and more cars!

And here are just some random things from our goofy, busy life :)
We took our Girl Scout troop to a local fire station which was so fun! Liam tagged along and was able to enjoy the trucks thanks to having a sister in Girl Scouts. 

I'm going to be missing this little dude when he starts preschool next year! Not sure who will make me laugh throughout the day. He is truly a goofball. 

Callie tried out some local ice skating for a friend's birthday party. She loved it! I had trouble getting her off the ice.

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

Birthday…
