Skeeting with Dad!

Adam took Clara up to Snoqualmie Pass for her first time skiing.
Or as she calls it "skeeting". They had a blast!

She was talking to me on the phone in this picture describing to me the 'flying chairs' and the 'magic carpet'. Purdy cute girl!

Catching Up!

Here are a few pictures of how life has been these past crazy months!

The 'eating station' when the babies were little.

Silly girls!!

Making Pizza!

The sun was in her eyes...

This is Pearl the Girl Squirrl. She lives out back and comes right up to the door for food. She'll even take the peanuts right from Clara's hand. Today she was obviously a little anxious.

I swear this was in Feb 2011. We don't have winter in Seattle. It's either rainy or not. Mostly rainy. And either way, you always have gray skies. So when the skies are blue, you go go find something to do. I think this is West Seattle. Alki Beach. We found shells, rocks and sticks... Clara favorite things! It was fun to get out and be reminded of where we live.

In April, we surprised my mom with a Girls Trip to Park City! Just the girls (and the kids). It was a true surprise- Mom had no idea. We had a blast and WILL do this again! We might even leave the kids home with their Dads: )

That same trip with Grammie and Grammpie!

Here we all are, packed in the car between Bountiful and Boise.
4 kids and 3 adults! So fun!!

Gettin' our Toes done!

Clara and I snuck away to get a pedicure. Of course, this is Clara's first (and probably last for a long time)! She loved the massage chair and sat really well for the gal fixin' her toes up!
