Our friends Sarah and Justin got married this weekend and Brian and I were both in the wedding. We had so much fun!!! It was truly the most relaxed wedding I have ever been a part of and was a great reflection of they are. The wedding and reception were absolutely breathtaking, I wish I would have taken more pictures with my camera that were just of the venue. Sarah looked gorgeous her dress was just perfect. Here are a few pics of us hanging around.

So as many of you know my Elliot is highly advanced(room for gagging and eye rolling here)? Just kidding. He is very smart though. Anyway, he now can spell words and read them, so Brian and I spelling things to eachother is no longer effective. Bummer I know many of you parents have relied on this as well and can probably feel my pain in this matter. Well Mommy and Daddy have gotten smart and pushed back into our youth only to pull out our Pig Latin. hats-tay ight-ray olks-fay, ig-pay atin-lay. I know lame right, well it works and we are sticking to it until that no longer works.
Heres a new pic of my always refreshing Elliot he cracks me up. He informed that this is the way you get around cold toes if you want to wear flip flops. I informed him this was a major fashion violation.

Today was so much fun!! We woke up got ready for church. On Easter Sunday we have breakfast before the service at church...it was pretty yummy with pancakes, egg casserole and biscuits and gravy. After church we went to Grandma and Grandpa Boats and had lunch which was also yummy! It was enjoyable time with family and friends. Next we went to Granny and Grannys Grandpas for an Egg Hunt and a picnic style dinner which was also yummy. It was so much fun to be together with all of our favorite people all in one day. The kids also cooperated and took a cute picture together for me...bet you can't tell they are brother and sister:)
Friday and Saturday marked the end of our spring break fun. We headed to Seattle on Friday with Grandma Boat and stayed over night at Embassy Suites. We swam ate yummy food at Whole Foods and had lots of fun. We woke up on Sunday morning and enjoyed breakfast together. We had planned on going to the zoo on Saturday but the weather didn't cooperate so we had to take a vote on Plan B. We decided on the Science Center. This was a great choice. There was so much to do and see and touch. We saw a planetarium show and eave got to go inside a butterfly house it was so fun! Thanks Grandma for the fun times:)

Today was nothing short of awesome:) We woke up snuggled and watched toons,Grandma Boat brought us coffee and italian sodas and just took the morning as it came.
Around 11 my mom took the kiddies and Melly and I headed out for an afternoon without kids:) Now don't get me wrong this week has been awesome having the kids home we have had so much fun but a mom still needs to get out of the house with her best girlfriend and have some chill time. For it really is true if Mamas HAPPY every one is HAPPY. We started out with some coffee, then headed for pedicures(oh and how lovey they were) next we went for lunch at Chiuauas Mexican Restaurant(this also lovely)then we went for spray tans (a little cold but still lovely) next we went back to Mellys and took the dog for a walk and lastly we spent sometime crocheting and chatting(believe it or not we still had a lot to chat about. I am so lucky to have my same best friend from eighth grade she is my true bosom buddy and I wouldn't trade her for the world:)
The kids had an equally awesome day with my mom, coloring Easter Eggs and playing in the yard. My parents connected a new slide to their playhouse so that was a large highlight and there are big plans to turn it into a mini waterslide this summer...I don't know if I should be excited or nervous about this.
We all ended enjoying a mini BBQ with Granny and Grannys Grandpa at our house.
I also ran tonight woohoo I ran almost 2 out of the 3 miles I set out to do. Its going to take time to build my endurance back up but I am hoping to run the chuckanut footrace so I will be praying for this lots as I am running.
Well more fun to come through the weekend:)

So today was not very sunny but we still got up this morning and enjoyed a nice walk with Auntie Melly and Darby. Elliot has been upset with me because I finally retired the double jogger and too it to the dump. SO now he has to ride his bike which he pretends he doesn't like to do. He did awesome today though and we got to get our chat in and the girls behaved themselves as well.
Next on our list was finding me a new pair of running shoes. We have been trying to shop local however I went to both possible stores and neither had my size. So we had to go to the mall. I got lucky because Kohls was having a sneaker sale and I save about $25...I can never pass up a good deal. I was so happy because when I got home from my walk today both shoes were in need of sole repair:( Now I can start running and boy am I excited...woohoo.
We ended our day at our buddies(Nolan and Clays)house. The kids had so much fun and it was nice to catch up with my friend Amy. They played star wars with their swords and Grace made use out of their craft cart.
I forgot my camera again today so I took a picture of my new kicks.
Stay tuned tomorrow is mommies day out with Melly and a BBQ with Granny and Grannys Grandpa.

Today was another fun-filled sunny day. The boys spent the morning mowing the lawn and building me a trellis for my beans and peas in the garden, while Grace and I attempted to find me some new running shoes. Then we shared lunch outside with Brian before he went to work. What a great start to the day.
After Brian went to w ork we went and picked up Sarah and headed to Fairhaven Park. It was so much fun there were a lot of other kids there so the kids had a blast. We ended the afternoon with Sarah at mallards for an ice cream treat and then came home. After that we washed the car and I had a waterfight. Yeah for another non-streesed out day with lots of smiles and not many tears.

This is the first time in three years that we haven't gone to California around this time. I have been feeling the need for sunshine in my bones and boy have we had some over the last couple of days.
Well Spring Break has officially began and I have pledged to do something fun with the kids everyday this week. Yesterday we started by spending the day and evening at Larrabee it was beautiful..we played on the playground, had a picnic and got wet and sandy on the beach. Unfortunately my camera informed me when we arrived that I needed new batteries:( so no pics.
Today we went to Bowman Bay with the Jones' which is right near Deception Pass. The car thermometer said it was 77degrees outside. It was another wonderful day spent eating playing and basking in the warm sun. My kids love the beach (I am sure Bubba can attest to this) it is the best time they just entertain themselves for hours. They would have stayed for much longer if we would have let them. But I could see pink cheeks forming because I hadn't brought sunscreen so we moved on to a nearby establishment for some ice cream.
So, so far so good, spring break has begun and we are having a blast. Heres to the rest of the week.

So we are in the process of picking out a boy dog for Ruby to make puppies with. Our friend Luke knew someone from work that has two daschunds that are possible mates for Ruby. She sent me an Email today with the pictures of the dogs and she entitled the Email Hot Guys for Ruby. The Red colored one is named Cooter and the one that is black and tan like Ruby is named Great Dane. We are looking for a vote as to which one to choose.
