I wanted to share some pictures of the kids that I took at my cousins wedding last week.  The kids are growing and changing so fast I thought I should post some new pictures of them.

Birthday Girl









Kaylee had a great Birthday.  She got to enjoy two parties in fact.  Everything about her birthday was beautiful and sunny just like her.  Happy 5 Kaylee!

It’s been raining, it’s been pouring

This week has brought a lot of rain with it.  It started out with light rain on Monday and it really rained Tuesday and Wednesday. We had 9.5” in a 48 hour period  in fact. DSCN2157 CJ enjoyed being able to go out and splash around in his rain boots.DSCN2169 

You can see CJ looking at where the garden would be.  I was going to go over it again with the rototiller on Tuesday and then plant it but that was not to be. Half of it is still under about two inches of water.  If it doesn’t rain maybe I will be able to get it done next week.


There is still water all the way across the road though it has gone down a lot.



I think that I might be the only person in Del Norte county that was happy about all the rain we got.  I really did miss it when we lived in the desert.

Free Cruise

This morning at church Uncle John invited us out on his new boat The Reel Adventure for an afternoon boat ride.  He is starting a new business taking people out fishing, sightseeing, or just for a ride.  He needed people to go with him so a photographer could take pictures for an advertisement.  Of course we were more than willing to to help out.  We had a great time and everyone enjoyed the ride and being with family.


Captain Ethan and Captain Kaylee both enjoyed their time at the wheel.

CJ enjoyed most of his ride up on the top watching for buoys.  


I spent most of my time chasing Ethan and Kaylee around the boat making sure we all got back to land dry. I would say we had another fun day. Maybe tomorrow uncle Randy, Bud, or David will call and need some cute kids to take out on their boats.

Ocean Lovers


One fun part of our life here is Poppy’s boat.  All the kids love to go with Poppy to the boat.  In fact that is where the older two are right now.  Today the kids got a little ride across the harbor from where we watched them unload the crab pots to where the boat is tied up.  Kaylee and Ethan didn’t think the ride was long enough though.  I guess they take after their mom when it comes to being on the ocean.DSCN2066

These are the six luckiest chicks in the world. We have been talking about them and planning on getting them for about four months now. The kids helped grandma pick them out and then they named them. Ethan’s chick is Fluffy, Kaylee’s is Barbie (I am not a fan of Barbie nor does she have one but she seems to think she likes Barbie), and CJ’s is Jill. Jill was going to be Jack until they found out that all the chicks were girls. The other chicks are Dora, Poopala (Poppy named that one), and Flower .

If you look in Kaylee’s hand you will see how lucky these chicks really are.



The kids had fun today collecting some bugs to feed them.



The only complaints the kids have had about them is that they are not laying eggs yet and that they are so messy. The kids don’t like that they poop so much especially right after their cage has been cleaned.

Ethan is looking forward to helping Poppy build a chicken coup in the near future. For now they live in the garage under a heat lamp.

We have worms

Today we learned how fun worms could be.


Everyone had a great time checking out the worms, seeing if they were earthworms or grub worms.


It really was a lot of fun digging in the dirt and meeting some of our new neighbors.
