Abby & Chloe were visiting WA with their grandparents and got to spend a few days with Oma & Opa. They came down to visit us for the afternoon and it was so great to see them. Since we had missed Oma's birthday in July we decided to surprise her with a little bday celebration. The kids had fun decorating cupcakes- they were quite fancy!
Abby is obsessed with Minecraft so she & Ben had lots of fun playing together. Chloe joined it too...miss Lauren wasn't so thrilled with this as she has zero interest in video games.
She loved getting one on one time with Chloe though. They had fun making signs in Lauren's room.
Happy Belated Birthday Oma!
Abby (9), Lauren (8), Chloe (12), & Ben (6)
Oma & Opa with 4 of their 6 grandkids! Next time hopefully Spencer & Kaitlyn can come visit too!
I'm an ambassador for the Northshore Schools Foundation and they had a booth at Celebrate Woodinville last weekend so the kids and I helped out for a couple hours. Lauren thought it was fun for a few minutes, Ben would've stayed all day. He loved handing out the million dollar bills to everyone and asking them what they'd buy with a million dollars if it were real. It was so cute! (We were handing out the million dollar bills because this year the foundation donated it's millionth dollar to the Northshore School District- pretty awesome!).
Since the Stephens' were here for a visit last weekend we thought a trip to Remlinger Farms was in order! I just love seeing all the cousins together- they are so cute!
Carson was so fun on this trip- he LOVED everything and was so cute and excited about it all. He got to ride Peaches which he took very seriously.
Hads got to ride the biggest horse there!
Off he goes!
Lauren got to ride the 2nd biggest horse...she was jealous that Hads got the biggest one though. We rode a second time at the end of the day and she waited extra long so she could have a turn on the biggest one. So funny what kids care about.
Emma loved her horse riding!
When we were in line for this Carson kept saying, "I'm going to be the driver". I told him there was only one driver and another kid might get there first but he said, "No I will be the driver" and low and behold, he was the driver and he couldn't have been more proud of himself!
Love this face!
The boys were the only ones who wanted to ride the roller coaster so Doug & I took them.
As you can see, it's not too big of a roller coaster, but it is really jerky. I felt like I needed to go to the chiropractor after it was over.
From the looks on our faces here you'd think we were at Magic Mountain! Ben loved it and wanted to go again. As soon as we were riding Carson said, "I want this ride to be over" but when it was over he said he loved it!
