It's been a while since I have updated the blog. Life is just really busy with three kids :) I'll try and update every now and again, but it probably won't be monthly anymore. I do upload pictures to my Facebook account, which is public, which is here:

May 2015

This May post is very late! It's almost June haha! But better late then never, right?

As usual, I have pictures from my cameras and phone plus another set of pics from our hiking adventures.

Here are May pictures from my cameras:

 One of my favorite pics. Matt even made a frame for this and gave it to me for Mother's Day :)

 Little cutie

 Her hair is SO curly!

 Crazy child

 Love her

 Mommy reading to the kids

 Isaac posing for the pics while the girls listen to the story

 Silly boy

 Penny photo-bomed her brother haha

 Yup, still reading haha

 Three sleepy kiddo's on Daddy's chair 

 She loves wearing shoes.... anyones shoes! 

 Isaac loves to the Lion King movies 

 Rosie having fun in the pool

 Theo waiting for to stop taking pictures and to throw his toy

 Enjoying her yogurt 

 The room exploded with lego's one day.... 

 Rose was giving Penny a hug and Penny wasn't too sure about it haha!

 She likes to hang out on the steps

 The day Matt re-enlisted, it was raining right up until it was time. We got to park by some cool planes. 

 Matt chose this specific spot because Isaac loves the Shark Plane (P-40). 


 Getting sworn in. I realize I am on the wrong side to take good pics of Matt, but I was also trying to keep the kids quiet and still, so this the best I could do :) 

 Loving the swing

 Both girls swinging 


 Serious little Logan 

 Chasing birds

 I think she has a mouthful of crackers haha

Smiley Logan!

Hiking pictures for May

 Judd Trail - May 2, 2015

Daddy was able to go on this hike, so he carried Penny

First obstacle is crossing a stream by stepping on rocks

Muddy shoes!

 Using a spoon

 Went to my first paint-n-sip. So much fun!

 Sippin' a Mei-tai

 About halfway through


 Up on the wall

 Rose and Penny watching cartoons together

 Penny passed out with Matt so he stuck her in the dog kennel. Mean daddy!

 Told the kids I was going to take them to the movies and that it might get chilly so they should wear pants.. they also insisted on jackets haha

 Smiley girl

 Excited for the movies (Watching "Home")

 Mommy's Mother's Day gift - movie with the big kids!

 Fun pool time

 Enjoying her first popsicle
(See video at bottom!)

 Went to a Pick-n-Paint with the kids one Saturday.
Rose painted a turtle and Isaac painted a jet.

 Rose's mattress was on the floor for a while (she had a cough that would wake her and it was easier to get to her this way). This is Penny about to fall off the mattress haha

 Made some keep-sake boxes for the kids
This one is Isaac's

 The different sections

 All three boxes

 Rose wanted her blanket tied around her head.... little babushka!

 Matt wanted to show Isaac how to use the push mower. Penny was supervising haha

 Helping Isaac out

Good joke Isaac!

And now for a cute video of Penny eating her first popsicle :)

That is all for the month of May! Hopefully June won't be so late.
