what we have been up to...

There are many more pics I will soon post but until I download them this will have to do....

Memorial Day- We went with our good friends the Malmbergs to the Bellevue Fountain Park for a picnic and fun

Enjoying the weather- The kids have had so much fun playing outside

Rachel's 30th Birthday - Ty surprised Rach with a night of fun, friends, and bowling

Alki Beach- While Adam and Britney were visiting we took everyone to the beach for the day

Carriages at Fairwood Downs- Our new place we will call home

This week is bittersweet for us because we are moving out of our house that we have seen built from ground up and have loved every minute of it. We have been so fortunate to have such great neighbors and amazing friends in the neighborhood. Due to Chad preparing to apply to Physical Therapy school we need to really start saving money and with me only working the finances became a struggle, so we found a great Apt in Fairwood which is between Maple Valley and Renton to live in for the next year. The kids are going to have to share a room which is going to be crazy but duable. The positive is we finally will have 2 bathrooms, a very nice pool and workout gym. We have loved living in Snoqualmie and will soon be back (3 years)...

Maddie's testimony

This last sunday it was testimony meeting and as Chad and I were listening, ok well trying to listen Madelyn said to me " Mommy I want to go up and talk" immediately my heart started to race because it was so sweet to hear that from my 3 year old. We both went up and she grabbed the mic and began talking as if all the attention was on her, which it was. This is how it went... "I love Jesus, my family, and continued to ramble so nobody could understand. finished with Amen" I then bore mine and as we were about to walk back down she grabbed the mic and said " i am grateful for my husband Amen" It was too funny because I had just finished saying that, so I guess she felt the need also. Everyone was laughing it was so cute. I am so grateful to our little girl and the happiness she feels at church. I am so proud of her for wanting to go up on her own. I am afraid however that she will ask every sunday.
