Treehouse, Snowmen, Aquarium

The past few days have been way fun kid days. We went with the neighborhood kids to the Treehouse Museum, Built a Snowman in the yard with Nate, and Traveled down to the Sandy Aquarium to meet octupus, sharks, penguins, frogs, and pet rays and urchins.
Fun was had by all!

Valentines at the Bowling Lanes

We hooked up with Nate's extended family for a night at WSU Lanes. We had bumpers up and the tiniest bowling balls but the girls LOVED it!!! Thanks everyone for the fun night!

Firemen, Firetruck!

Our sweet neighbor Maxine slipped and broke her hip today. The ambulance and firetruck created quite a stir. We tried to eleviate some of Maxine's embarrassment by drawing attention to the fire enguine. The firemen signed the girls' fire book and let them climb in the truck and get dressed up in their duds. It was quite the morning!!!

Dangers of Skiing

The girls and I enjoyed the Junior High Play, Beauty and the Beast, while Nate was working away.

They loved meeting Belle at the end and the suckers that were shaped like Roses. It was very impressive!!!
Beware Photos may be gruesome...

This poor girl was skiing and when she went off the jump, her pole stuck in the snow and her chin came straight into the pole. Nate fixed her up right away but I thought you guys should see his handy work.
