Mother's Day 2016

Ashley and all her kiddos on Mother's Day morning.

The fancy frozen pizza I made (put in the oven) her for lunch came with a punch out Italian mustache.
Momma got lots of homemade presents
These girls sure love their momma.
Ashley was excited to get her favorite cookies.

 We forgot to take a picture of Ashley's yummy BBQ dinner.
Rachel drew this for Mother's Day.

We love Ashley, she's a great mom.

Cousin Eli came to play

Cousin Eli came to stay with us for a day or two while Uncle Josh and Aunt Karissa celebrated their 10th Wedding anniversary. We sure had a good time with Eli.
Naomi and Eli played so nicely together while the other girls were at school.

In the evening, we went on a family walk to the Fish Patchery

We showed Eli the skate park

And the logger statue

And the old bag statue
We got a lot of looks like "5 kids are you crazy!" Eli fits right in.
Looking at the salmon frye

And we showed him the fishy bank statue

And the bridge
And the salmon eggs in the bridge
Ashley spotted a jack rabbit
We thought they were playing with some flowers or bugs....
Nope, bunny guts, leftovers from some Eagle's dinner

We showed Eli the 1 year old Coho salmon yearlings

Eli was a great helper pushing baby Joseph

Checking out the trout

Home again, home again. What a fun time with cousin Eli.

Lake Meridian

On a warm and beautiful Tuesday evening in May, we headed to Cafe Rio, in Kent for $5 Tuesday and then played at the nearby park at Lake Meridian.
