Sauvie Island

This place was awesome! If you haven't been you really should try to get there-they have so many fun things to do! There's the Corn Maze, the animal barn, the hay bales for climbing, different vendors, and of course the pumpkins! I think we will make it a yearly trip-I loved the store too:)

It was a gorgeous day:)

The kids that went through the maze-well Max was done after the first tiny leg of it.

Mid-week Hike

Hey remember me???
I'm still here...just a tad on the busy side!

Anyway one day last week {a really nice day} I decided to take the kids to Daybreak park for a hike. I stopped by and picked up Evan and off we went to meet Michelle there.

On the trail.

I LOVE this picture of Kam-My fav of the day!

Miss Tiera

Evan giving Max a helping hand:)
It was pretty wet there, lots of little creeks we had to cross.
Kinda fun with a couple toddlers trying to cross on logs.

Little miss Khloe-big blue eyes!
She is already 3 months old!!

Here Shane and Evan built a "bridge" for the rest of us to cross on.
I didnt get a picture of the finished bridge.

Michelle helping Kam jump a log,
She ended up carrying him most of the time:)

Me and Khloe on the swing-her first ride on a real swing!
Pretty fun little hike through the woods:)

Khloe Michelle

7 lbs. 5 oz.
19 inches

She was born at 2:30 am and she was indeed sunny-side up!
My longest labor besides Shane.
Although my midwife told me last week that I only pushed for about 15 mins-felt like
3 hours!

Look at us we are a huge family!!!

Khloe is already 3 1/2 weeks old-seems like such a short time and like she's been here forever!
I'll try to post some updated pictures soon:)

Happy Birthday Kamdyn!

Kam is already 2 years old!! So crazy-it went by fast:)

So his birthday is actually today but we celebrated yesterday. It was so nice and sunny for the most part kinda windy. The girls went in the pool-they looked like they were freezing but you can't keep them outta there if there is a little sun and a tiny bit of warmth;)

Kamdyn with his new hat he got from Boik and Lisa.
He loves it cuz it's just like daddys:)


Oooh whats in there?!?!

Can't beat that!

Birthday cupcakes:)
Strawberry Orange!
2 of his favorite fruits:)

He looks so proud!

Getting ready to blow them out!
He got a little overwhelmed when everybody was standing around him singing,
but he got over pretty quick once it was time to eat!


Happy Birthday little man!!!!

Memorial Weekend

Since I couldn't fathom going to the camp-out and sleeping in a tent, we decided to head up to Lacey and stay a night and spend some time in the pool:) Didn't get pictures while we were down at the pool though-the little boys loved the hot tub! They tried really hard to put me straight into labor with their fearless antics-Kamdyn decided to see if he could just climb into the deep end of the pool while we were on the other end! Yikes! Anyway the next day we went to check out Cabela's. What a huge store! They have the middle all set up like a mountain, with animals that have been stuffed and they have an aquarium running through the middle of that-Pretty cool!

The kids were pretty impressed

On Memorial Day we had a BBQ.

This cake was really yummy-I'll be posting the recipe @ The Peppered Pantry in a couple weeks.

Just hanging out eating

The little boys showing how strong they are;)

S'mores!! Yummy I had found these HUGE marshmallows and we tried them out but they were a little much for these small mouths:)

In baby news: I had an apt. today and found out that what I had been suspecting for quite a few weeks-baby is facing the front! I'm a little freaked cuz my mid-wife told me its fine I can still have it normally it will just be a longer labor and more pushing! I'm pretty used to pushing 3 or 4 times and being done with it so you can bet I'll be doing the exercises she recommended! She also said that the back spasms I've been having are prob contractions and that I could "go" anytime-I'm totally ready and completely not ready at the same time:)

These little boxes are adorable and were pretty easy to make too:) Lily and I made them for her to give to the girls she wanted to ask stand in her wedding.
I'm calling this one my craft for purple;)
A couple weeks late-he he!

She filled them with feathers and candy:)
In other news, I had a dr.s appointment today-everything looking good so far:)
I have 5 weeks to go-feels like should be sooner though! lol
I'm sure thats not too out of the ordinary-I feel like a giant old pregnant lady!!
This is the first time I have felt like it really would be easier on the outside-sleep deprivation or not!!

I added a few new crafting blogs to my blog list-be sure to check them out:)
