This Scene Looks Familiar...


Last weekend we decided to have an impromptu BBQ at the park here in Albion. We called up a few of our buddies and had lots of fun enjoying the sunshine and the charcoal. Here are a few of the pics.

Hooray for Spring!

And we so love our back yard and swing set.

What Does It Mean....

When your 2 year old has to make sure her magnets are level? Are we talking early on-set OCD?

Great Morning!

Tucker slept from 10pm-5:30am last night...its amazing how a big chunk of sleep can make you feel so much better. But not only that, Maeli woke up all be herself this morning around 7:30 (we normally have to wake her up at 8) and tried to make herself breakfast out of the crackers and cheese (spreadable cheese) that was left out from last night. Normally she comes straight to me or Jeremy because "maeli needs milk." I feel great! Now if I can get all my chores done this morning, we might be able to actually have fun today instead of just "coping"! I'm so excited.

Happy Easter!

Nap Time

Egg Hunt

The toddler's Area:

Waiting for the "go" and trying to stay dry with our friends

Starting to get the hang of things

Dad helps find lots of eggs, Maeli picked them all up by herself

Maeli found the coveted silver Easter Egg

Which she traded for an Easter Basket full of goodies

She figured out really quick which things were toys and which were candy. She decided Easter is good.

What we've been up to..

Maeli and I have been trying to have dinner ready for Dad everyday...our track record is getting better, although we're still not perfect. But we made him trout the other night and he was so happy.

Tucker just sleeps a lot and gets bigger and more handsome everyday.

We also started a puzzle last weekend during conference, and Jeremy and I finally finished it!


A few weekends ago, Jeremy had a code conference in Boise and invited us to come with him. It was SO nice to get out of Pullman, but at the same time, not really have anything to do...we somehow managed to fill a weekend with:


Not Cleaning:

and Shopping at our favorite place:

Plus was got to chat in the car, I love talking to Jeremy in the car because it doesn't matter if or what we talk about, its just fun, relaxing, and felt like least for us. Jeremy had fun too and came back with all kinds of plans and ideas for the future.

And...We Have Lift Off

I See You
