She's 5!


I can't believe it..last week, my baby turned 5! 5 years ago, she came into our home, turned our nights into sleepless ones...(seriously, I was sleep deprived for I can't remember how long..hmm, maybe I still am) made us first time parents, taught us what it meant to be selfless, showed us what it meant to love someone more than yourself, and opened our eyes to a whole new world.


Now, she is 5. She keeps asking me if she really is 5, and I keep saying yes, you are such a big girl. She also proclaimed that now that she is five, she has to do every thing by herself (I'm not complaining) she has to get dressed by herself, go to the potty by herself, etc. She has even made the big transition of sleeping in her undies...(okay so we are lazy parents who prefer not to be changing beds at 3 am!)


Anyways..she starts Kindergarten in about 6 weeks. She is changing so much before our eyes. And although I am loving this new independent stage, (for those of you who know Mia this is HUGE!) I am sad that my little girl is growing up. She was our first. First in everything that was considered being parents. I am looking forward to watching her blossom..but not too quickly okay Mimi?

Berry Pickin'







Our annual trip to Coastways...got about 6 pounds of berries...mostly ripe..others..., well picked by my kiddos, makes them a little tart!

5 Families 28 people!











Yikes! It sounds like a lot, but in the HUMUNGOUS house we rented you would have never guessed there were that many people! 12 kids, 10 adults, and 6 teenagers! (the teenagers didn't belong to us...they consisted of our exchange student, 3 visiting family members and 2 friends)



We just spent 4 days at Twain Harte. We hung out at the lake, played games, and just had fun!



The lakes were perfect for the kids...waist deep and warm enough to swim. 3 Families brought Kayaks...so we all took a turn paddling around...



Sarah borrowed many blow-up animals for floating around...a frog, lobster, dragon and tube...Mia layed on the rocks pretending to be Ariel, and Emma ate sand, dumped it on her head, and got plenty of it in her bathing suit!



The adults enjoyed the sun, company, and late nights after the kids went to bed. One mom even created the Otter Pop margarita...yum!





We are looking forward to many more summers there.
