Random missed moments… well missed in the bloggy world anyways.

Somebody started baseball this year!
No more t-ball for him. :)

I'm loving the red outfits.

He takes the game very, very, very, seriously. :)
And he's good, if I do say so myself.

This rockstar dresses herself, oh yes she does. And she comes up with winners like this on a regular basis, ha ha!

The kids love slumber parties on the weekends, and they usually end like this. :)

One of them is faking, and it's not the big one. ;)

J is living with us right now, a story for another day maybe… He turned 19 soon after arriving, so of course he needed birthday pancakes! He absolutely hates having his picture taken, haha!

It's a very full house right now, but I'm loving it. I have my biggest boy back… for a little while anyways. :)

Banden has a stay up night now. Every Thursday he gets to stay up an hour past his siblings. He really needed to feel like the older brother. :) On this night he wanted to play war with J… and as you can see by his very happy face, he was winning. I really treasure this time and plan on letting all of my kiddos have a special extra hour to themselves when they reach the same age. :) Which means that four out of seven nights I will have to wait a little longer until I get me time, but oh well. Me time is over rated anyways right… ;)

Don't be fooled… ;)

The kids made this rockin' Leprechaun trap. :)

Unfortunately they once again didn't catch that sneaky Leprechaun… they have already planned the trap for next year, it's going to be the winner they say. Ha!

Banden loves his furry sisters.

Hubby made this beautiful shoe shelf for me, to go by the front door.

It goes well with the shelving unit he made in the background. 
Love having a creative and very talented husband. :)

And I end with more slumber party snuggles. Because they are just too cute! :)

Rockin' the rock...

Well we had our first really nice day of spring and headed for our annual rock picture as usual. :)

 I can't believe how big they are!

 I say that every year, ha ha!

 My biggest boy…

 My littlest boy…

 My silly baby girl…

 My middlest boy, ha ha!

 The views at this park are amazing!

 Crabs had to be found for observation.

Leiella is such a mountain goat, she wanted to climb the whole time! Good thing daddy was willing to go on adventures with her. :)

Mountain climbing involves posing for pictures apparently.

Awesome crab find...

Observing the crabs they found. Sorting and categorizing. It was a scientific adventure. ;)

Climbed to the top! 

Me and my honey in the sunny! ;)

Not to be out done by his sister...



Pushing the limits.

Banden collected crabs the whole time!

Leiella's baby crab. :)

Charlotte is quite the adventurer!

Rosemary is not… She's a momma's girl. ;)
They've since had haircuts, looking a little scruffy here, ha ha!

Since this glorious day we've had way too much rain. At least we had a glimpse of what is in store. Bring on summer!
