It’s been a crazy week with the hubby in the hospital and living in survival mode. The kids were troopers and had Grandma and Grandpa to meet their needs! Blake was discharged Thursday and actually went into work for a few hours Friday. Crazy guy! Friday was the last day of school so the kids and [...]

It’s a great day in the Pacific Northwest and the breezes were perfect at Chambers Bay Loop! It is a 2.25 mile paved trail with plenty of elevation to make it seem much longer. Zack thought it must be at least a half marathon and we’re hoping Hazel didn’t overdo it with her cold and [...]

Sports equipment, squirt guns, scooters, bike helmets, chalk and lightsabers! Oh My!  We started with a four foot slatwall and [...]

Okay … so I am by no means any kind of laundry guru. I’m the one that shrinks sweaters, washes pencils, money and the occasional duct tape wallet (which, by the way, holds up quite well).
