Todd’s Birthday

About a month ago we celebrated Todd’s birthday (with the kids) by spending the day at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle. We hadn’t been to the museum since before the girls were born but it still felt familiar with fun hands-on and educational exhibits. Ada and I both enjoyed the butterfly house and salt water touch pool. Ruby enjoyed running around like the busy girl she is :)

Snow Day

Several weeks ago we had the perfect snow day. The snow had fallen on a Friday night which made for a great Saturday play day. By the next day it was completely gone.

We trudged about half a mile to a sledding hill near the river. The girls had a blast and it was nice being so close to home when they got tired about an hour later :)

Ada Turns 7!

We can’t believe our Ada is 7, time sure flies! She has turned into a sweet young lady with a heart for Jesus and a love for reading, art, LEGOS, and dancing. This year Ada wanted a Frozen themed party and after looking online together for cake ideas, showed me what she wanted. Other than a few lumps and awkwardness the cake turned out pretty cute and Ada was very happy with it. We had a large group of 10 kids to celebrate with this year, including Ada’s cousin Layla. They played bean bag toss, create-a-creature (with marshmallows) and pin the nose on Olaf followed by presents and cake. We are thankful for so many friends & family!
