"If you know someone who has lost a child or anybody who's important to them, and you're afraid to mention them because you think you might make them sad by reminding them that they died, they didn't forget they died. You're not reminding them. What you're reminding them of is that you remembered that they lived, and that's a great, great gift" - Elizabeth Edwards

"The deep hurt is the mirror image of the deep joy that still awaits you." - Bruce C. Hafen

30 Weeks

I am 30 weeks along now. I can’t wait to meet this sweet baby!

Last day with my mom

Today was the last day with my mom. The time has gone by so fast.  We have had such a great time with her. I appreciate all her love and help. We have been able to do a lot of fun activities. Nicci is heartbroken that she is not here anymore and has been crying most of the evening. Poor girl. We love you mormor!

Me and my mom

My mom and the kids

We went and visited Oliver’s grave and my mom brought some nice yellow flowers and a beautiful white heart.

Celebrating Midsummer

On Saturday morning our neighborhood had a garage sale so we went to that and both my mom and I found things. In the afternoon we went downtown Poulsbo to celebrate midsummer. My mom was so nice and made Nicci a flower wreath, the kids got their faces painted and they got to dance around the midsummer pole. Later when we came home Eric got home from a camping trip he had been on for 3 days. We sure missed him while he was gone and we are so happy to have him home!


Point no Point Beach

Yesterday we went to Point no point beach. We love coming here. It was a little cold but the kids had fun. Afterward we went to Kingston and had some yummy crepes.

Strawberry Picking

After the Olympic game farm we went strawberry picking at the Graymarsh farm. The weather was beautiful and the kids loved picking the strawberries!

Olympic Game Farm

Yesterday we went to Sequim and the Olympic game farm. The kids loved getting to see so many animals up close. They got to feed a lot of them. The kids also had fun petting all the goats at the petting zoo.

Play Kitsap

We went to play kitsap one day this week and the kids had a lot of fun!
