Beach Trip

For some reason the font wasn't showing up on my post, so I decided to add the text separately. Sorry for the insane amount of pics....just had a lot to show you all.

I haven't posted anything for so long...I'm not even sure how to start telling you what we've been up to. I looked through TONS of pictures from 2011 so far and I got so overwhelmed, so for now, I'm just going to start with the more recent stuff, since it's fresh on my mind. Over Memorial Day Weekend we went to the beach and stayed for a few days. I LOVE the fact my kids don't care that when you put your toe in the Oregon coast water, it starts to throb in pain...they were out boogie boarding and splashing like we were in Hawaii. We also went on the amazing hike that had a beautiful waterfall and this fun suspension bridge, oh yeah, and LOTS of mud. At first I was worried about Ryan keeping up with us, but he ran at least half of it through the muddy trails, it was so funny! I kept worrying that he was going to slide off the side of the trail, so I had to run with was actually really fun! There are many things we love about Oregon, besides the people...we love how beautiful it is here. I hope you enjoy some of our pictures!

October fun!

We've had so much fun this October and I just wanted
to update our pictures with some of the fun things we did.
A trip to the pumpkin patch was a blast and the best highlight
so far, for most of us was Elena and Tyler's Halloween Birthday
Party! Between the 2 of them, we had 24 of their friends over.
It was a blast! One of the best parts of the night was when most
of the kids left, we found Brooklyn and her friend Piper in the
playroom doing karaoke! They were sooooo cute! Anyways, enjoy
the pictures!

Mason turned 6....well, about 5 1/2 months ago!

I know this is VERY late, but hey, better late than never, right??? Mason turned 6 last February! There are so many thing to say about my "middle child!" Mason is always making us laugh and he's always suprising us with the things he knows. He is such a fun, smart and handsome little guy! He may seem all tough on the outside, but he is really a sweet and sensitive little boy on the inside. One of my favorite things to do is to cuddle with him at night, I wish I could do this every day. Mason loves anything that boys love...Pokemon, Bakugan, the Wii and most of all, Legos! I'm always amazed at his creative mind and the things he designs and comes up with. Just the other day, he took the hose in the backyard and attached it to some pipes, made this neat design, and then he put a cup at the end of it to catch the water, it was pretty impressive. His brain is ALWAYS thinking of things he can do, you can see it in his eyes, I love that about him! I also LOVE that Mason has no fear. Nothing scares this kid and he always tries new things and excels at them, I'm so impressed by this. Anyways, I could go on for days, but for this year, this is it! I love you Mason, I hope you have a AWESOME 6th year!!!
P.S. The to picture is Mason's first tooth that he just lost this last month...he was sooooooooooooooooo excited!

Daddy's little girl!

Ever since birth, both of my daughters have LOVED their
dad. I think it's so sweet and I love to see how close they are.
I took these pictures one day when Scott fell asleep with Brooklyn
cuddling up to him telling him stories! She has the best imagination,
and you will either find her singing or making up the craziest stories.
I just think it's so sweet that she'd lay there for hours if it meant she
could spend time with one of her favorite people!

Tulip Festival 2010

We recently took a trip to the Tulip Festival. Of course we
took a TON of here are a bunch of our favorites!
One of the funniest things was watching Ryan and his obsession
with his kettle korn. Anyone who came near him was a threat and
treated as such. He would run and scream. He was so funny!
