Weekend Coyote Ridge Hike

On Sunday on our way home from church we decided to hike Coyote Ridge. We pass the trail ridge each week and Clint and I have biked/ran it but the kids have never been on the trail. We planned ahead and packed hiking clothes and lunch. The kids were excited and ate their lunches as…

Happy 6th Birthday Edric!

After a month full of adoption camp fundraiser, marathon, Easter, and ballet we finished the month celebrating Edric turning 6 on Tuesday. We are having his little friend birthday party this weekend but we still celebrated him for his actual birthday. Edric loves hot dogs and so we had his birthday dinner a few days…

A Mid Summer’s Night 2019….

Over the weekend we were transported back to the time of William Shakespeare and his comic play, A Mid Summer Night’s Dream via the Centennial State Ballet’s production. Caedmon was a purple bug and I was a backstage mom/doctor/extra set of hands. A few months ago after we got the casting as rehearsals were just…

Coppelia 2 Years Home!

On Sunday not only did we celebrate Easter but we also celebrated Coppelia’s Family Day. And she let everyone know it as well. Especially that she was going to get to eat Mochi Balls (ice cream that is wrapped in a rice paste that the kids love and we use to celebrate family days and…

Easter 2019

We did Easter over a couple of days this year. I’m finally getting smart and realizing that trying to do Easter baskets and egg find on Sunday morning while also trying to get everyone ready for church just doesn’t work. At all. So we did Easter baskets and eggs on Saturday morning which made Sunday…

Garden 2019…

So I said I wasn’t going to do a garden this year but I might have changed my mind. I love to garden but with 5 kiddos and life I have started the past two years with good intentions only to end with dried up dead plants and very healthy weeds. I had also decided…

Bobcat Ridge Trail Run….

The day after we took the kids on a hike at Bobcat Ridge Clint and I decided to go for a trail run. Well I ran and Clint rode his bike. We couldn’t have asked for a better day and the kids were super excited for an excuse to spend the morning at my parents….

Bobcat Ridge Hike…

We decided to not really take a week off for Spring Break this year. We decided we’d rather finish a week earlier in May and have more summer free time. However we decided to make the week that the littles didn’t have preschool and the bigs didn’t have their Wednesday enrichment a little lighter and…

Paxton’s Family Day

And finally Monday was Paxton’s 2 year Family Day. He has been such a blessing to our family and such a little sweetie. He may be small (he finally hit 28 pounds….with clothes on) but he has never let his smallness stop him, he totally acts and thinks he’s just as big as the big…
