1st Grade!

It's so hard to believe, but Colin started first grade this week.  What a big boy!  He's riding the bus home too, which has turned out to be a lot of fun for him.  We're very proud of him! 

(and of course Owen has to have what Colin does)

4th of July weekend!

The boys had a blast - literally - on the 4th of July.  We teamed up with our neighbors and set off a bunch of fireworks together.  The men went to the Indian Reservation and bought a stash right at the end of the day when they are trying to unload them.  Cheap deals!  You can see the loot they picked up and the happy kids at the neighbor's house. 

Today Benjy took the boys on a hike in the Olympic Mountains.  Both boys had a blast and Owen even hiked the whole way!  (3-4 miles)

Visit to the Farm

The boys visited the local farm with Daddy to kick off the summer.  Looks like they had fun!

Kindergarten bites the dust!

Colin officially "graduated" from kindergarten yesterday!  So hard to believe - seems like just yesterday he was starting this school year.  (and just last week it seems he was a baby!)  Here are some pictures from the fun!  The classes did a bunch of cute songs for the parents and then we had a party in his classroom.  He met his teacher for next year and is very excited already! 

Also, here is a picture of the boys "cuddling" on the couch last night watching TV.  Just too cute!

Happy Easter!

The boys had a lot of fun this weekend celebrating Easter!  Our neighbor, Suzanne, held her annual egg hunt for the boys and spoiled them with tons of candy - Owen really did well this year finding eggs and is very good at eating lots of chocolate! 

The boys had plenty of goodies from the Easter Bunny this morning as well and have been on a sugar high all day long. 

We've had glorious weather this weekend with highs near 70 both days and sunny!  

I'd say that's the perfect Easter!

Volcano Action and Bounce House Fun

The boys got a volcano kit a few weeks ago and had a lot of fun making colored LAVA come out of the top.  I thought I was so fancy getting this kit to make a volcano - and wouldn't you know it, the SAME day the volcano kit came, Colin came home from school saying that they did a volcano in school that day the same way.  So much for a surprise...

We also had our friends, Kennedy and Will, over to play in the bounce house.  They all went a little crazy!

And just because I'm the mom, I can show you a play-doh creation that Colin made for me!
