A tree adventure

Who's ready for an all day tree hunting adventure? Boots? Check! Water? Check!

Really? I'm supposed to walk in this stuff?

I like it better from up here.

Digging a fort.

Those eyelashes!

The tree has been found and cut.
Taking a rest, it's heavy!

Wide but beautiful.

Sledding time.

Dry clothes. A stop in Leavenworth for dinner and the tree lighting festival. Back home with two sleeping babes.

Putting the final touches on.

is whizzing by so very quickly. And I just can't seem to get to the computer often enough to download, sort, upload and narrate all of our adventures (small and big...someone had a first birthday!) We are currently vacationing in Yellowstone - this is us in the Boiling River near Mammoth Hot Springs.

More to come....hopefully.

Sibling PJ snuggles

Bennett loves to use the peeler, slicer, corer. I told him he could only
use it if he was going to actually eat the apples - so he ate 3 apples.

Clara helping with laundry

Eating sand at the park

Easter morning - Bennett eating his candy right away and Clara content with the eggs

Bennett still eating candy, Clara's cute smile
Bennett took this photo - any guess what his favorite part of Easter was?

Phone photos

Thank goodness for cell phones - I rarely can remember to pack the camera. More often instead, I pull out my phone to capture the spontaneous, picture worthy moments of everyday activities. I also think they are some of the best ones of the kids because they reflect our day to day laughs and the smaller moments that are easier to forget. Here is a purge off the phone from the last few months.
Learning to sit in the high chair - and loving it.

Nap time in a nest he built on our bed.

Because we are often on the go on weekends, Clara and I have spent many a pit stop in the car nursing.

Bath time crowns.

January trip to Phoenix, picking breakfast from the tree.

Phoenix zoo.

Clara and doggies.

Bundled up for snow days.

Swinging in the snow.

Painting in the snow.

Mommy's helper - B feeding Clara dinner while I cooked our dinner.

A sunny day at Lake Tapps.

Home remodeling requires a lot of trips to Lowes - which requires finding ways to make the trips kid friendly.

My Picasso (notice a "no pants" theme here?)

Sick, snotty baby - getting over an ear infection.

Fireman Bennett.

Peak-a-boo Clara.

Morning snuggles (Bennett insisted they both wear Christmas PJs - I think he's feeling the let down after Christmas and his birthday)
