Birthday parties!

One of the benefits of being closer to family is being able to celebrate birthdays! The kids were able to go to their cousin Beckett's birthday party for the first time! They loved it! (Or was it the treats they loved?)

The kids LOVE Grandma and always choose to sit by her when they get a chance.

Playing in Michigan

We were happy to find this toddler friendly park in the town south of us. The kids were thrilled to have something similar to what they had in Washington. The major difference is, there are hardly any other kids at this park and the park in Washington was always busy.

Snack break! I bought a box of fruit leather for our big road trip, but we just didn't eat them as much as I anticipated. We finished them about 10 months later. Lesson learned.
When we first saw our rental house, the person showing us apologized for all the rocks in the front. Noel and I both said, "This is great! Our kids LOVE rocks!" We were definitely right about that one. These rocks have provided hours of entertainment.

I wish this picture wasn't blurry because it's one of my favorites of Jude. It's SO hard to get a good picture of him.

Within a couple of minutes of the new stool being put in the bathroom, Nona made her way into the sink. She is the adventurous one of the 3.
"Look Mommy! I have stickers on my legs!"

There's a small hill in our backyard. Hazel likes to "help" Nona up and down the hill. So sweet.
