Tea Party with Grandma

Grandma made Riley an amazing tea set so they had to try it out with a fancy party! She had both kids 2 Tuesdays ago and here is what transpired - too cute!






Big kids

Seriously - when did they get so big!

Riley (just turned 2): Talks just like jack - all sentences, no babble, tells you whats on her mind, what she wants, and what she see - its amazing! She swings on the big swings, sings the alphabet, counts to 16, drinks pretty well out of a big girl no lid cup, sleeps in her twin bed, draws faces, and has known all her colors for months which her teacher said none of the other kids are close to that!





Jack (almost 3.5): writes his friends names on their birthday cards, can do some addition on his hands with daddy, picked up how to shoot a bow and arrow in like 10 mina - seriously, hes good!, all his school work is done so well (circle the biggest item/draw lines to the same colors/draw the letter Q...), helps his sister a lot, and is just the sweetest kid on the planet.



Some videos of these amazing kids!

Arizona Trip 2014

It had been 3 year since our last visit, - geese I wonder why :) Well it was a perfect time to go since Hannah was born in Feb!

It started out with Jack getting to sit in the captains chairs. The kids did amazing on the airplanes (better than me), we stayed at grandpa and grandmas house which was packed full of toys, spent lots of time with Hannah (oh ya and her folks :) - and jack is obsessed with her!

We went to a ballgame, the kids went to the zoo, Jack and grandpa went to a robot and dinosaur museum, and we got some time to ourselves with friends (St Pattys!). Kim set up a family photoshoot on Sunday which was sooo nice since we don't have any pictures of the 3 of us. Was a wonderful trip!
