Something New

So I finally bit the bullet and started a different blog. I'll try to update this one upon occasion, but I am so into learning about photography these days that I figured I'd make that the theme of my new blog. So pop on over and check it out. I'm trying new techniques and learning everything I can get my hands on! Enjoy! Feel free to comment, I love comments!

Our Vacation Begins...

We left Seattle on Thursday afternoon and arrived in Coeur D Alene, Idaho around 8 or so. Charlotte asked if we were almost at Grandma's house before we were out of Seattle! We knew then it would be a LONG TRIP. After a refreshing night's sleep (HA. Mac was NOT happy to be away from his familiar crib), we ate a delightful Holiday Inn Express free breakfast and headed to Silverwood theme park. Now we had to make a stop first because I forgot my toothbrush and had to buy one. Fun times brushing my teeth in the car, that was a first!

It was a hot day and us Seattleites are not used to this kind of heat, so we got off to a sluggish start. Once we hit the water park, it was smooth sailing! Fun, fun, fun! We rented a cabana which was ours for the entire day. This includes personal food service, and a shaded place to hang out. A great place for babies to nap.

The water was refreshingly cool...

All in all, it was a fun start to our trip. Be back tomorrow for the next leg of our journey.

Charlotte and Evelyn could hardly contain their excitement...Mommy won a trophy! Well, it wasn't a real trophy, I guess. But it was a large victory for me. At bootcamp we took a fitness test at the beginning and end. I have improved my fitness level by 37%! 37%!!! Unbelievable. Just a month ago I was struggling to do just basic physical tasks. Most improved. That's ME!

Prima Ballerinas

These beautiful bunnies lit up the stage during their first ballet recital. Of course my little bunnies were the cutest little bunnies...

Fun with my sister

It was cool and kind of rainy, but a good day for pouring water on the deck, splashing to my heart's content, and then giving my little sister a facial. Good times.

The girls are snuggled into my bed watching "Caillou" before they go to bed so I just have a couple of quick minutes. It seems like this month has been a blur and I really only remember bits and pieces. I definitely remember boot camp! I have been working my butt off 4 nights a week for the past 3 weeks. One week left, I'll be sad to see it go because it has really flipped a switch for me. I can do this. For so long I have felt like I just couldn't keep up so I was afraid to join a gym or attend fitness type classes. I will definitely move on to some other form of excercise 4-5 times a week from here on out. I've come so far in 3 weeks, I can't wait to see the results after a few months!

On to other topics...Here is what we plan to give Daddy for Father's Day. I don't think he'll check out my blog before then.

Remember that snuggly scene I described a minute ago? The girls watching "Caillou" in my bed? Now it has dissolved into total meltdown. Got to go...

There is such a thing as too much cake!

While it feels like Mac has always been a part of our lives, it also seems like I just saw that faint pink second line...
Here is a preview of the birthday fun. As I am too tired to write much more tonight, I will be back tomorrow to entertain you with stories of graduations, birthdays, playdates, Grandparent visits and much more. Stay tuned...
