Deception Pass Camping

We had such a good time camping at Deception Pass with the Marti family!
And as an extra treat, the Blouin and Stuurman families came to visit during the day, as well!
Sean went to college with Bill, Shawn and Scott so it was a fun reunion for all of us :)

A few things to remember about this trip:
1) Mara was a dirty mess the entire time...camping with a one year old is no joke.
2). Kennedy wouldn't pee or poop in the campground toilets... the automatic flusher caused some major anxiety for our girl. Therefore, she peed in the woods and pooped on a paper plate. No I am not kidding.
3.) I love mixed drinks... especially when there are nine children running around.

3's Preschool

Kennedy had her first day of preschool today! She is now in the 3's class with Ms. Rona as her teacher.
She had such a fun morning seeing a few old friends and meeting some new ones... I am so glad we are getting back in our preschool routine. I think it is so good for her ... (and for me!!!) ;)

 Tofu... the class desert turtle

Leo... the class water turtle

Family Photos - 2012

We had some much needed family photos taken a few weeks ago! We had not had professional ones taken since a) Mara has been born and b) since Kennedy was 13 months old! Though I am constantly taking photos of the girls... we rarely get really nice ones of the four of us.

Thank you to Jessica Hamlin for taking these gorgeous photos. She is a friend of a friend and I have been admiring her work for a long time. When she offered a summer special, I just had to jump on it! :)

Kennedy has a goofy expression on her face in most of these... but, that is just true to her personality right now and now we have it beautifully documented... LOL! :)
