 Alley had 8th grade graduation.  She and sam looked so pretty.   They are such good girls.
I love this picture!  This is how I would describe our family.  We are close!

School's out for Summer!

 The kids are out of school and quickly fell into routine of teasing each other!  They thought a cat and dog fight would be funny.  The cat won! 

Pedicures for all!  
Man I look uncomfortable!

We found a fun ice cream shop in the middle of farm fields. 
Snow Goose will be a new family favorite!

YAY for Summer!

One week till Schools out!

 The beautiful weather has continued to last!
I love seeing all the kids playing together.

These two are funny kids, I think they liked the licorice I brought outside more than playing in the water! 

A long day for the kids!  I love them nice and tired!

A New Dining Table

I love Ben for building me this beautiful table.
It was SOO many hours of work for him, mostly because I stained the benches the wrong color. So we had to sand them all down (which took about 20 man hours) ouch.

Look how great it looks in our house.  
This puppy can seat 12 adults easily 
and an unnumbered amount of kids!  
Perfect for us! 

We found this bike at a yard sale, its too funny!

36 weeks

I am due in one month (June 27)
I feel like there is no way I will go past my due date being as big as I am.  Look my shirt doesn't even fit over my belly!
But as my mom has said before its easier to take care of the baby inside then on the outside!  (just a little more uncomfortable!)

 I can't remember a more beautiful May in the 11 years that I have lived here!  We have had weeks and weeks of great weather and we are fully taking advantage of it.   We know June is coming and it can be a really rainy month around here!
 Alley taught Reese to ride a 2 wheel bike!
Its funny to see such a little kid on 2 wheels!
We love having Bella over.
 Bennett is happiest outside.   
The kids are so nice to entertain him 
on the swing or riding the bike.

 These guys are always up to something.  
They love posting pictures on instagram so they are
always thinking of new poses.  
Alley had to stay home from school the next day
 because of a headache and neck pain!

In the mean time,  I dug out the baby girl clothes, sorted and washed and organized a space for her.
5 more weeks!

Mariners & Mothers Day

It was LDS night at Safeco field, so we thought we had better support our religion!
The View was incredible 

We arrived early enough to watch batting practice.

 It's always fun when cousins come, hurray!
And this is how I feel this mothers day! 
Over whelmed, huge with child and happy.
 These two are quite the pair. Reese tells Bennett what to do and he does it.  It works!
 Yet another reminder that pregnancy is NO fun!

But, these guys are always having fun!
