Easter Egg Hunt

Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment »

Every year we gather our friends and family to do an Easter Egg hunt at our house. This year was a blast 12 kids and 24+ adults. Thanks everyone for coming over, my family and I always enjoy having a party!


Cam has got some loot!


Carter on the hunt!


I really love it when everyone comes to play on the awesome swing set my daddy built. He did such a great job!


Happy Easter everyone, look forward to seeing you all next year!

We went to see the tulips, there were a lot of people and it was really windy!


Ruby wanted NOTHING to do with it!



Seriously, I said “don’t mess with me!”


Trinidad CA–Visiting Cierra Day 1

Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment »

We made it! We survived a 7 hour drive from Seattle to Eugene, went to bed at 11:30pm and woke up at 6:15am. We ate breakfast the next day and got back on the road by 8:30 for our arrival in CA at 2:30. Just a short 2 hours away the battery light on the car came on so mommy had to pull over and the car was dead! We called AAA and they sent a friendly young fellow named Eugene from Cave Junction to come rescue us. He ended up towing us back to Grants Pass from Kerby, OR and it was about 30 minutes in the country. The best part was the big tow truck was only 3 seats so Ruby sat in her carseat and I got to sit in mommy’s lap. I thought that was SO cool, I said “Mommy, this is cool, we never do this!” Mommy replied, “Yep, you are right and we will never do it again if we don’t have too!” We made it to Grants Pass and took the car into Honda and we are hoping it will get fixed tomorrow so we can return the rental and be on our merry way.


Here are some pictures from our fun day with Cierra and her grammy Linda.


Cierra is taking us to go find sea creatures…we didn’t find those but we did find a cave!


Ruby loved running on the beach!


Crazy waves at Lagoon Beach…not a play in the water beach! We did have a good picnic of PB & J, chips and juice, we LOVED it!



Cierra brought back a sand crab and we thought it was dead so I asked her to pull the legs off…it started twitching and Cierra freaked out! We laughed!IMG_3735

That’s it for the day, we ended up going to the grocery store to get some food and had a tasty dinner of spaghetti-o’s, yogurt & fruit. Look forward to our unknown adventures tomorrow!


We love and miss you daddy!

Ruby reads a book

Sometimes Ruby likes to be just like me, she is trying to read a book and I keep interrupting her…

Santa Claus is coming to town…

So…Ruby kind of freaked out and refused to sit with me…she wouldn’t come near Santa. She was like a mad cat clinging with claws to Daddy.


Santa and I are buddies though, he’s a jolly good fellow!IMG_9686-1 IMG_9689-1 IMG_9693-1 IMG_9694-1 IMG_9696-1

Ruby & her inky

Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment »

Have you ever notice how much my sister enjoys her inky (binky)…she is getting older now and everyone questions it but my mom doesn’t care much because she sticks her fingers in her mouth to suck on without her binky. My mom certainly can’t cut her fingers off one of these days so she just sticks with the binky…one day they will all be lost and she will have to deal with it. Until then, here are some cute pictures of her.
