Snoqualmie Falls

A side trip on our way to the Wright Family cabin last week.  We decided the Falls was a good a place as any to get coffee and let the kiddos "be free.". These pics help remind us that they're super cute.

Valentine's day crafting

There's really only a couple days a year that I bust out my skills...the ones way deep down...those crafty ones by which I follow pinterest directions down to the T and something fun turns out.  Valentine's day is one such day.  I got the supplies ready tonight and did a practice round.  A couple of lessons learned:

1. Peeling crayons takes a lot longer then you would think...calluses will build.

2.  Put the silicon tray on a cookie sheet otherwise you'll have to let it cool / re-harden in the oven.

Class observation day!

Class observation day snuck up on us today so I got a few gems!!

End of summer

The summer is practically over so we are jamming in as much fun as possible.  We hardly stop long enough to dress or brush our hair.  Lots of boat stuff, hanging with friends when ever we can, drinking wine, out door concerts, drinking coffee, sprinklers, hugs and ultimately getting ready for deven's first year at highland elementary.  This has been a great summer and thankfully I think we will have a few more weeks.  We may even get in another weekend sail before the rain starts.  Fall is going to be awesome but I'm trying to store up on a few more days of vitamin d before I completely commit to its impending arrival.

Twinkle twinkle little star...

Tova's love of stars and moons is not wearing off anytime soon.  Please observe in my secretly recorded video.  She didn't want me to record her but I HAD to for future reminders of her cuteness at this age.  Follow this link to my instagram account.

Hockey mama

A few weeks ago deven and I spent some qt on a Sunday.  Nick and Tova were down watching the hydro races but dev's hockey practice was mid day/afternoon so we stay up north.  I got a quick lesson on gear placement and tapping.  Please note I'm not responsible for the elbow pad placement when all was said and done.  He did pretty well though listening, being humble and not purposefully falling all need to be worked on. Afterwards we walked to fish tale brew pub for snack (it's tradition).  So I guess I'm officially a hockey mama now.

Fireman Pancake Breakfast

I think this is Tova's first breakfast at the firehouse...At least one where she wasn't sleeping or needing a nap in five minutes.  A huge hit as always.  We didn't have time to do the full blown aquafest this year but I made sure to get this in.  So everyone this is why we were two hours late to the reunion!!  Now that I think of it there were no tears in the reunion travels because we got it all out on the walk back home from the station.  Mama included. 👍
