Maddie's New 'Do

I finally did it. Cut Maddie's hair off. Or the professional did. I just could not handle the food particles found in her hair, the fight to wash, brush or comb it and fighting her to get it pulled up and out of her face.
The verdict? She loves it! And so do I!

Colorado Part Deux

More beautiful scenery...There is nothing like playing on the soccer field surrounded by mountains. It was amazing!

Daddy and Z chillin' while the older two kiddos played at the park.
JJ jumped off this log about 37 times and I had to take his picture almost every single jump so he could see himself on the camera.
THIS was Maddie's face in almost every picture I took of her this week. She is a sassy one!

Colorado Part 1

Colorado was amazing! Not only was it our first big family vacation together, we were in beautiful Colorado. Our time was so relaxing and enjoyable to be away from reality. This first picture is a rest stop in Western Kansas. We needed a stretch your legs kind of break. The kids traveled very well.This is our first look at the mountains. JJ was soooooooo confused by what we meant mountains were. When we first entered Denver we could see them off in the distance, but he just couldn't grasp what we were looking at. It was funny but a tad frustrating because he went on and on about not being able to see them. (Maybe I am a poor descriptionist!)
The family eating dinner in our condo in Steamboat Springs, CO where we stayed for the week...

Happy Mother's Day! This was suppose to be the only really nice day so we decided to hit the trails and venture out to Fish Creek Falls just 2 miles away. I am thankful we went when we did because it snowed and rained the rest of the week. It was a gorgeous day this day and such a wonderful way to spend Mother's Day.Another picture of Fish Creek Falls....

Family Fun Festival 2010

Every year the base does a Family Fun Festival with lots of things to do! This year the weather cooperated very nicely and didn't get too cold or too hot. The kids loved riding on the fire engine the best! Maddie has told that she is going to be a fire engine when she grows up. Of course she means fire woman :)

Birthday Pictures

6 Months....3 years...
5 years...

Maddie is 3!

Maddie turned 3 last week and she is every bit a three year old now! She now informs everyone she meets that she is "free." And is also every bit a little princess! She loves all things girly and pink. As much as I tried to not emphasize princess around her, she just seems to gravitate towards them! Oh well, what can you do?

JJ's Five Years Old!

He had a wonderful Spiderman themed birthday party at lunch yesterday. I can't believe our little guy is already 5. Seems like just yesterday we were at Altru in Grand Forks holding him in our arms. And we already have pre-kindergarten round up in a couple of weeks! Yikes! All the things to think about this year. Our lives will be so different in 6 months with one is school. He is going to love being in school and meeting new friends!

Happy and Healthy

Zach has blessed us with his presence for 6 whole months already!!!! He weighed in at 17lbs 6oz and 26.5in tall(both in the 5oth percentile). His head was a bit on the small side, but no concerns. He is sitting up by himself most of the time and is very fascinated by his brother and sister! He is our texture kid. He loves anything that he can grab and make a noise with. He is very chill as most people around here put it and he smiles a ton :) We are still working on the sleeping through the night thing. Mommy would be very happy with that! He is in LOVE with his bath time. He'll play and squeal 'til the water is cold and then some.
