Easter Packages

Yesterday the boys got to open two Easter packages that came in the mail.  One was from Auntie Karin and the other was from Auntie Kanga.

They couldn't wait to open them!  Cannon and Colson climbed up into chairs next to each other.  Cannon let Colson open the package from Auntie Kanga.  Cannon opened the package from Auntie Karin. As they pulled things out, they each ooohed and aahed over the toys and candy!

They had their stash in front of them and sat there eating and playing for quite some time.

Thank you Aunties for the wonderful surprises!  We love you!
Enjoying every moment.

Cool creations.
Lots of colored fingers.
Fun times.
Perfect Saturday.

It was great to watch the boys dye Easter eggs today.  I loved how excited they were.  (me too!)

We ended up with a dozen perfectly colored eggs!

Hello Doctor

Colson had a follow up appointment this morning for the discoloring and lump on his knee.  We had to drive to Bellevue and spent the entire morning there.  The lump seemed to feel different....not as hard and more squishy.  The doctors were still stumped as to what it was, so they scheduled an ultrasound, which is why we were there for 2 1/2 hours....waiting for that appointment.

The great thing was that there was a play area and Colson had a great time playing with trains and then painting.

The ultrasound did show enough clues to help the doctors decide that it was nothing except 'vein malformation'.  The good news is that if it's not bothering Colson and we aren't concerned, then we will just watch and monitor over time.  (which is what we decided)  Yeah for that!

I enjoyed the day with Colson. We had fun together and it's nice to have some one on one time with him!

Enjoying every moment.  

Funny Faces

We welcomed  home Chris from his business trip to Oregon and the boys were on a high.  They found the drawer of props and put on quite a show for us.  We laughed pretty hard!

Silly boys!

Another Soccer Season Under Our Belts

Cannon finished up his soccer season Wednesday night with their last game.  He sure has improved from the first season!  And his growth this season, from the first practice to the last game, has been tremendous.  He is a lot more aggressive and understands the game so much more.  We are thankful for his dedication, as well as a great coach this season!  

Cannon loves to steal the ball from other players, plays great defense, likes to play goalie, and even scored a goal tonight!

We are very proud of Cannon!

Enjoying the Sunny Weekend

We sure did enjoy the sunny weekend.  I wish every day would be sunny and 70 degrees!  It sure makes a difference!

This weekend the boys had a ton of fun playing in the sandbox at Greg and Brenda's house.  They loved the new lowboy truck.  Colson calls it the 'little boy!'  They spent hours this weekend scooping dirt, hauling trucks, just playing.  Sand was everywhere!

Cannon and Colson also helped Chris paint a wall in the garage.  The goal was to get two of the eight shelves up that are sitting in the garage.  That didn't happen.  The primer is up but the paint is still in the cans. Too many projects going on at the same time.  Not enough hours in the day.

The boys loved playing outside today.  They both took off their clothes, hooked up the sprinkler and ran through it!  I sat on the back deck in the sun and watched them.  It was wonderful and I could have stayed there all day!

We made a couple of runs today to do errands...not planned.  The last time I went out was to return a pair of shoes for Cannon that were too small and hopefully find a pair that was bigger.  Colson wanted to come with me and insisted on wearing his pajamas.  He had them on since he just woke up from his nap.  So off we went to the shoe store, Colson sporting his doggie jammies and flip flops!

Enjoying every moment!

Let's Ride

This afternoon Chris and I took off for a few hours by ourselves.  The sun was out and we took advantage of the warm(ish) weather and went for a motorcycle ride.

We took the long way to Tacoma, down Ruston Way en route to Anthony's for an early dinner.  I had the salmon which was amazing.  Chris had a nice, juicy steak and fries.  The view was great of the Puget Sound and Vashon ferry.  We loved being together, just the two of us.

After dinner, we headed across the Narrows bridge to Gig Harbor.  We took a nice ride around the harbor and ended up back at Kelly's for ice cream.  We also walked down to the city dock to look at the boats and see the view.  I love old town Gig Harbor.

Before heading home, we took a ride over to Fox Island and around the vicinity.  It was the first time Chris and I have been over the bridge to Fox Island...we've driven under it in the boat many, many times...but never over it!  There are many beautiful homes along the water.

It was a great ride and great evening.  It was nice to get away for a few hours.  We're ready for our next ride!

Enjoying every moment!
