One of the many good things about Walla Walla is there park and rec programs. There are tons! We signed up for swimming lessons at Whitman College and the kids have just loved it, which makes me love it. Savvy is swimming by herself (still struggling but it is all on her own) and Cohen likes to ride around on noodles:)

My kids have an incredible dad. A dad who wakes up at 5 in the morning so he can come home early to hang out with them, who will wrestle with them for hours, who makes the outdoors magical, who will read and make up stories, a dad who not only loves them with everything he has, he really really likes them.
So we went out last Thursday and bought him a grill for fathers day. We wrapped it up (doesn't it look so pretty) and then the kids started adding all homemade presents to the top of the box. When Michael came home there was pictures, a sword, another small box, and two bags of mixed nuts in zip lock bags all for him.

Friday was a good day, a very good day. We started our adventure with our weekly trip to the library and it was Elephant and Piggie day. Mo Willems has written several books with Elephant and Pig and we absolutely love them. So at the library there was a scavenger hunt, stickers, worksheets, just tons of piggie love and this girl had a blast.
Then we saw them and it was like no time had passed at all. The kids have never gone more than 2 weeks without seeing Patrick....NEVER, their entire lives. After the hugs were over they were talking a mile a minute, catching up on teeth, reading, movies, bike riding, and I think this picture is when Patrick told Cohen "you hair has grown I see"
Then we went on a hike
threw rocks in the creek for 2 hours with almost no casualties. April did hit Savannah with a rock, she threw it straight but it went right:)

I felt kind of crummy this week (headaches, tired...blah blah) so we stayed in a good bit but we still managed to have some fun. I walked in to this, Twalie and Spike getting married

This sweet little diaper has been pulling at my heart strings for the past week. Pampers has come out with Olympic diapers and Michael accidentally bought them. I absolutely positively LOVE the Olympics. Ever since I can remember, when it is Olympic season the TV is on all day, we sit around and cry listening to the amazing back stories, cheer for USA (and the underdogs), I just love everything about it. When we moved we decided to get Internet and not cable. The house in Memphis still hasn't sold so this is a tangible way for us to save and Michael and I have never had cable so this wasn't a big deal. What has been a big deal is that we don't even have major networks...nothing. We still have a TV and use it for movies. But seeing Caleb's precious booty with USA on it...ooo. Michael and I have been having some serious conversations. I think I might be talking him into it....lets hope:)

I'm so excited to say, that after 5 months Michael has gotten a car! He has been such a trooper and in rain, snow, ice he hasn't complained once about riding his bike to work (he likes adventures, seriously). He wanted something bigger that could hold all of us and our camping gear, and this is what we found. We are so excited and I think it fits perfectly in to our family:)
