We go somewhere almost every day. I love this time with the best girls ever. :-)

We have a 10-year-old in the house! Bronwen, I love you so much and am so lucky to be your mom! Right now Bronwen is into Taylor Swift, hamsters and the usual, reading! She's made good friends with our new neighbors' daughter, and they just ride their bikes each afternoon when they can! I love you, sweetheart!
Conrad and I have really been on a health kick this week to knock out a few extra pounds. With long summer days and all my angels home from school, we've gotten into homemade food. A few days ago was our amazing lemonade and today was homemade pizza! Delicious and so fun!

We ran around getting things for Bronwen's birthday. Got home and made lunch. It was sunny, so we decided to eat outside. Our table is normally on the patio, in the shade. Ava said, "I wish our table was in the sun." I said, "Why not?" We moved it to the middle of the grass. Then it got too bright, lol, so I ran inside and got our sunglasses. As we were eating, I looked around and thought we looked so funny -almost like The Matrix. Ha!

The most meaningful gift is one that is homemade, from your little children. They give all that they have, everything they treasure. Cate made me a pendant in school on Thursday and every day asked me, "Mom? Is it Mother's Day today?" She was so excited for me to see it. Ava invited me to a "Queen for the Day," celebration at her school. She made me a beautiful book, her class read, "I Love You Forever," had a slideshow with a picture of each child and a quote about their mom. Then we had dessert. It was wonderful. Bronwen had the idea of making me a pennant that said, "Happy Mother's Day," and hung it in secret in the kitchen before I came downstairs. Conrad brought me flowers and made his famous breakfast burritos. We went to the Pacific Science Center and saw the Secret World of Spies. We got pizza. This was my favorite Mother's Day. I'm so lucky to be a mom to the best girls in the world.

During Spring Break the girls went with me to meet my clients at their wedding venue. They had a great time exploring and we went to McDonald's for breakfast. Super cozy!
On a funny note, Ava's white pants were a magnet for dirt. First mud splatters, then syrup, right on the crouch. It looked like a diarrhea disaster lol! She changed add soon as we got home. ;-)
We are major Seahawks fans! Got the t-shirts, and I swear, every Blue Friday felt like a holiday around town. Everyone is in their gear, giving the head nod and showing their Seattle pride! We got Papa Murphy's pizza on game days and had a blast. We couldn't have been prouder of our team and our city. Go Hawks!! :-)
Our baby turned 4 and celebrated in style! The girls and I made her a Frozen cake and we all went to Chuck-E-Cheese's! On top of it, they had a little celebration for her at preschool! Things she loves:
Book: Call me Lucky
Animal: Oreo, her stuffed dog
We sure love you, girl!
