Friday Evening Fun

Ice cream, sticky hands, trains, pretend train conductors, dandelions, cherry blossoms…these are a few of their favorite things. Such a simple evening out walking around downtown Snoqualmie, wasn’t really sure what to expect. Well it was a blast, let the kids lead the way. They spent half an hour pretending to be train conductors, Payton gathered bouquet after bouquet of dandelions…always for Mommy, she demanded her picture be taken with the cherry blossoms…”because Mama goes CRAZY for them!”, and we even found a park with a huge open field of flowers…both kids were in heaven. It was just what the kids needed, a large open space for the kids to just run and have fun, no whining or arguing…it was a breath of fresh air!

Just a little Spring and Easter fun…

A few sunny days here and there have been nice! Starting to feel like Spring! The days are finally getting longer!! We had a fun sunny day at Fox Hollow Farm with our good friends. Egg hunt, animal feeding, ATV riding, flower picking fun! So glad the sun is finally on it’s way to the PNW!

Weekend Family Getaway…Lopez Island

We took a last minute family weekend getaway and we had a blast! Yes exhausting and yes the kids didn’t sleep, but it was SO worth it! The kids went on their very first ferry ride, we explored, took nature hikes, drank hot cocoa, lounged on the couch, and walked the shores looking for seashells and barnacle rocks. We got very lucky to have a couple days of sun before we surprisingly came back home on Miles 3rd Birthday to a ground full of snow. One island down…many more to go!

Happy 3rd Birthday Little Dude!

Hi sweet boy,

Today you are three. Yesterday you were saying “I two a half” and just like that you are three. I can’t believe you are another year older. I know this is cliche, but time does fly, way too fast. My sweet little baby you have so quickly turned into a giggly snuggly fun loving toddler.
When we found out we were having a boy, people always told me “oh boy, you are in for it now!”. And yep, they were right. You are one of a kind. Not scared to tackle your sister, not scared of the repercussions after throwing your food or ripping Barbies head off, not scared to jump so hard you chip your tooth, not scared to fall so hard you bust your chin. Not scared to snuggle in close, not scared to give the best kisses and every single night ask for “anofer kiss Mama!”, not scared to say “I weally sorry” without being asked, not scared to give your best friend Gracie a never ending hug, not scared to say “hold you me” a million times a day to squeeze in extra snuggle time, and definitely not scared to hunt big sister down after school or gymnastics and jump up and down in excitement with a monster hug like you haven’t seen her in years. But scared to cross the street without holding Mama’s hand, scared to walk on the train tracks, scared for anyone to walk on the train tracks, scared for big sister to step off the curb, and scared of crowded rooms.
These are the sweet moments I want to remember and hold on to forever and ever. Your heart is so kind, caring, and full of joy…my sweet boy, please never change. Just slow it down a bit, I don’t want four to come as quick as three did.
Happy happy 3rd birthday to the coolest little dude I know. I love you times a million and to the moon and back.

Love always,

Things you love:
playing outside
paw patrol
wrestling with daddy
yogurt smoothie drinks
playing cars and trucks
building with big sister
cheese sticks
brushing your teeth
listening to music
when big sister dresses you up like a princess
hide and seek, especially hiding behind the shower curtain at night

Things you don’t like:
when Mama brushes your teeth
when Payton takes your toys
train tracks
when your room is a mess before bedtime
