A Fall Flop

October 2013 A year ago I took my kids out to a beautiful grassy hillside at a historical farm in Duvall, Washington to capture the joy and wonder of their childhood. Wes was the entertainment for the night and he did a marvelous job, but it was impossible to get all five sets of little […]

a mess of fun

There are a lot of things I don’t really love about our home, but this room makes up for all of that. The room usually looks like a tornado hit and there are times I feel super crazy inside just glancing in. That feeling leaves me with a need to do one of three things, […]

a Sunday tradition

This is Kaitlyn and Adelie’s massive bedroom that doubles as our playroom. We all love it! It has quickly become a Sunday tradition for Jacob to truck across the house with bins of Lego’s and knights to join the girls in an epic battle against the ponies and Care Bears. They have even found a […]

Again and again and again… Super cute girls with some pretty awesome hairy monsters!   Thanks again Danette! […]

an ambitious ride

I was entirely too optimistic about an almost 2 mile bike ride. I overestimated Adelie’s biking skills and she was very sad when she found herself in the back . Cora and I kept her company. The little jaunt included a fairly steep hill for little legs, but we made it. My happy caboose! Feeling […]
