Sick Week....

There is not much to say about this week because we were all sick. Well really Landon and I were sick, but it made all of us stay home. Landon had a stomach bug for three days so we were confined to our house. So we did some puzzles, colored and watched WAY to much TV. This mama is getting a little stir crazy. Luckily we are all feeling better so we should be able to get out of the house a lot more this coming week. Because Liam didn't get sick he was still able to go to preschool and he had his crazy hair day on Friday. It was so funny when I was spiking his hair. He told me that I shouldn't spike it in the back because it would get messed up in the car. I just thought it was funny that he would think about things like that. He really liked having his crazy hair. 

 Roland got to go up to Seattle on Saturday with the Young Men and Young Women. They had fun exploring the city. We will have to go up as a family sometime. 

It was not a super exciting week, but I am sure this week will be better. Geoffrey, my brother is coming from New Hampshire so we are all excited about that.

Children Museum in Olympia

Roland has a nice long weekend and on Friday we were able to go down to Olympia to the Children's Museum. It was so awesome. Liam was so excited when we first got there. He saw so many cool things he didn't know where to start. We spent about two hours there and we didn't see a lot of the exhibits. We will be going back for sure. 
 Landon loved this water feature. You make your own boat and then direct it down the water. 

 There is also a cool outdoor area that Roland and Landon checked out.

 We also spent a lot of time at this exhibit where they put balls and scarves in the tubes and they fly out the top. Liam had fun trying to catch the balls as they came out.

Landon being his cute self. This was such a fun outing, and seeing as we spent most of the rest of the weekend at home with sickness it was so nice to get out.

Valentines Date and Snow Day

What a great weekend. Friday night Roland and I went on our Valentines Date (yes we went a week early to avoid the craziness). Roland had not told me where we were going, but I had an hunch it was going to be on the Sound because we went pretty early. I was right! We went to eat to Anthony's Hearthfire Grill in Olympia. It was great. The food was amazing and it was nice to have a great view. I really needed a night out and I was so happy to spend time with my love. 

 Saturday Roland went to the temple with the youth and I was getting a little concerned went he didn't get home until 10:30 but then he told me the roads were pretty bad because it was snowing. I had all the blinds down so I had no clue in was snowing. Because of the road conditions church was cancelled for today. We loved being able to play in the snow. I forget how much I loved sledding and snow fights. After the boys got too cold we went inside for hot chocolate and relaxing. I love being with my wonderful family.

 We didn't have sleds so we improvised with a tarp. It worked pretty well.

I'm back...

After a long hiatus from blogging, I am back! I have been feeling like I haven't been taking enough pictures of the boys and I really want to document our lives right now. There are doing so many great things and this will help me remember everything. So to catch up a bit we are in Washington now and we are loving it. Roland is also in the Army, and we love being able to explore the Fort Lewis. Last Sunday, before church we went to the Air Force Base to check out the planes. The boys were in heaven. It was pretty cool for Roland and I too. Because it was foggy we didn't realize it, but current planes take off really close to where we were. We figured it out when we heard a lot of noise and saw a huge plane in the fog. It will be really fun to come back here on a sunny day. It was so fun!
