2020 4th of July!

We had a fun 4th of July. It started with a trip to the zoo! The first time we’ve been all year. It was so much fun to get back to seeing the animals. : )

After our zoo fun we came back home and had a yummy dinner outside. Then did a few water balloons, bubbles from Hudson’s new bubble machine and some sparklers. It was a fun day! : )

Outside fun weekend!!

This weekend we had a lot of adventures outside!

On Saturday we went to a beach in Edmonds. It was a little rainy so we pretty much had the beach to ourselves and we had a lot of fun!

Rhone created a really cool face using natural items found on the beach! I loved it! : ) outside fun 4

On Sunday (today) we went on a 2.5 mile hike. The boys did pretty well. Hudson needed to be carried for some of it but Rhone was able to do the full hike. Rhone says that he LOVES hiking – he is my boy! : )

Here are the boys looking in a swamp water area – they are looking for frogs. : )

Easter 2020

It was a different kind of Easter this year. Just staying home with everything going on and not going to visit family…..but we still had fun!

The day before Easter we decorated eggs.

Rhone left the biggest carrot he could find in our fridge and made a special melted popsicle juice for the Easter Bunny!! Yum!!

Fun at home!

We’ve been staying home to be safe with the pandemic going on! Here’s a sample of  some of the fun things that we’ve been doing. : )

Cleaning windows – I convinced both boys that this is so much fun! hahaha

Rhone and I have  been doing a lot of cooking/baking. He is a really good helper!

We painted ice cubes, let them melt a bit, then froze the melted ice and  pretended that the frozen water was an ice skating rink for the paw patrols! (This was fun for a couple of hours for Rhone!) : )

It is a little hard being at home so much but we are just happy to get to spend time with the boys! : )

2020 SNOW!!!!

We’ve had a snow half week here. Here are some pictures of our snow and of Rhone and Hudson playing outside in it.

Rhone was a big help with shoveling the driveway and getting the snow off of the Corolla. The snow started to melt this morning so I think we will be back to normal weather soon.
