Oink, oink...

We have a house guest for a few days and it's like we are on the farm.  Meet the perfect lawn mower,  vegetable compost,  and Bindi's shadow. Puck!

rock 'n rolling through seattle...

This past weekend I completed the Seattle Rock'n Roll half marathon. Yay!! I signed up for this race several months ago and was a little hesitant since my last half marathon ended in me puking right after the finish line. Let's just say that the training I originally wanted to do did not turn out like I planned so it is a miracle we finished. But we did and we even ran some of it- go us.

green thumb...

This is the year that we are planting a summer garden. I have been meaning to start one since we moved and we've now lived here for quite awhile so it was time to start. Let's hear it for cucumbers, squash, broccoli,  and lettuce. Let the growing begin!

float on the waves...

What is better than enjoying this lovely pacific northwest weather?  Enjoying it on a boat. Let the summer adventures begin!

let's go camping...

Our family enjoyed the long weekend spending it in the great outdoors camping. We had not camped for several years in an actual tent so when our friends asked us to join, we were all in. Even Bindi was able to join us. There were a few cold nights, lot's of marshmallows consumed, and scooter riding with friends.

We left the campground on Monday having a greater appreciation for the great outdoors but an even greater appreciation for a warm shower and our beds.

mother's day...

My day started out with breakfast in bed - heart shape pancakes, bacon, and they even managed to make me a cup of coffee. Can I wake up to that every day? 

After breakfast Ethan was very eager for me to open presents. He had picked out the cards this year and of course they had to be musical cards. One was the song 'tequila' which I think he purposely picked out since we had seen Pee Wee's Big Adventure. The second one was a relaxing beach scene. He knows me so well. Ethan had painted a wine glass for me and then my guys gave me a new turtle wall hanging and a black cat necklace. Perfect. 

After soccer and lunch, they let me pick where we were going and we headed into the mountains to enjoy this nice weather and this beautiful place we live in. We took a long drive and hiked the Ice Caves. This is a great hike for starting out the season and we had an awesome time. 

I am definitely the luckiest mama to have ended up with such two amazing guys!

swaying palm trees and sunshine...

We are back from our week long vacation on the big island of Hawaii. We had such a fun and relaxing time it's hard to get back into the swing of things on daily life. I'm also very much missing eating all of our meals on the lanai as well in 80 degree weather. :-)
