4 years...

Wow, what an amazing journey-
Zoe turned 4 years old today, I think this has been the best birthday so far.
She really understood this year that is was a celebration of her.
We spent the weekend celebrating with family, got some amazing pictures but of course my camera wasnt working, so those will come later.
These pictures are of today:)
We started last night off with throwing a bunch of balloons in Zoes room while she was sleeping, hung streamers from her door and around her door!
We got up and Zach went and got balloons, donuts (of course) chocolate milk, and flowers for our little princess.
It was a wonderful day, Zoe and I got our toes painted, we had costco hot dogs for lunch and Red Robin for dinner.
I am so in love with this littel girl, though she has her moments of true PRINCESS PRIDE she is mine, I love her, I love who she is, I love her tantrums (not really ) I love her smiles, silly faces, random thoughts and so much more.
My little beauty queen has filled the last years of my life with more Joy than I couldve ever asked for.
Heres to you my princess, I love you with every bone in my body!
Happy Birthday Miss Zoe.

Happy Happy Birthday-
Love you

I am so proud of my husband today.
He competed in his first sprint tri-
1/2 mile swim, 12 mile bike and 3 mile run.
His time was 1 hour 30 minutes and 38 seconds
We made t-shirts for the girls to show our support!

First leg of the race was swimming, I have never been so proud, so nervous, so emotional.
My biggest fear was not seeing my husband come out of that water, he was in within the first 50. As soon as he came out I had some tears, very emotional!

Second leg was biking, it was part road part dirt, problem with the dirt portion was there was no passing!!
Still did great

Third part was the run!

Here he is finishing, amazing!

Proud dad, proud kids!
This was an amazing experience and Im glad that I was there to route him on, I am so proud and cant wait for the next one to come around!
We love you babe!

When it pores:)

So here I am visiting the great town of wenatchee- great friends good family and two children! A two year old and a 6 week old. Never have I traveled this far ( 2 1/2 hours) by myself with them and the trip there- fantastic!! Well on the way home I was stopped by a road crew blowing up rocks- 20 minute delay- okay, so we wait the twenty minutes. We pass the flagger and of course it has been 2 hours since I fed the newborn so its time to eat she screams- we make it to the rest stop and POW its closed, so we pull over! Then in the middle of feeding my two year old yells POTTY MOMMY, POTTY MOMMY- great- I say. So I give her the option to go outside- NO WAY so I say " lets put on your sisters diaper and just this one time you can go in a diaper" NO WAY aaaaaaaaaaaa- what do I do...well, there is a fruit stand up the road! So we hop in the car, get to the fruit stand and I plead my case- YES they say, you can use the toilet!!!
okay, I think we are good to go...but of course we get behind three truckers!!!
So long story short our 2 1/2 hour trip ends up taking us almost four and we make it home to a loving husband and father and a batch of peanut butter cookies from the neighbor!
I guess there is always a rainbow at the end of a rainstorm- HUH?
