Woodburn Tulip Festival Part 2

Dear Kidlets:
You are a delight to be around (most of the time, haha).  I really treasure every moment!

 You are one another's best friends.  Once I was talking to someone that had grown up with Daddy about how I truly wanted our family to be each other's best friends before anyone else because we are going to be together for eternity.  I think she stopped listening after that, but I knew that that was what I truly wanted.  I love that you/we are.
 You adore your baby sister. You each constantly tell me that you love to have a baby sister.

You love to make each other laugh. It melts my heart.

 K, five minutes after you got out of the stroller  you fell into a huge pile of mud.  It was so cold I had to change you right there and put you into a measly little sweater that I had brought instead of your lovely warm coat.
 We were there with our friends from Tigard.  Angela Bingham and Erika Bushman. Their kids were in school that day.

 They had these delicious "elephant ears."  We, together, ate four of them.
 See how glorious those beautiful tulips were?! I loved the bright colors.

 We did duckling races.
 We played on the tire swings.

 We people-watched.

 Rode on/in cow wagons.

And loved the food.  What a great experience.  Next time, we'll bring more warm clothing.

Woodburn Tulip Festival April 2015 Part 1

  In April we met up to go to the Woodburn Tulip Festival.  Some members of our church are one of the owners of the place.
 I have been looking forward to go to this since we moved to Oregon because we had heard that it was one of the things that we should not miss.
 The festival did not disappoint, even though it could have been a lot warmer.
It was so cold, but so worth it!  You had that day off and we had so much fun.

Meet Skittles!

 We have a rabbit.  I am planning on an honest to goodness photo shoot for him, but for now . . .
You love him so much!

I Can Do This!

Today's mantra was, "I can do this!" I had to write this to convince myself that I desperately needed to call to get the lawn mower fixed.  I called a bunch of places and then called the Tire Factory and they came right out in the afternoon and fixed it in ten minutes! I was so grateful!
There will be the times that we have to put aside our setbacks that are all in our head and move forward.  Which I did.  Now our front lawn is nicely mowed and I can breathe a happy sigh of relief!

The Wreck By The High Way

 Last week, we were driving home from a family outing.  There was this wreck that had just happened a few moments before on the side of the road.  Dad hopped out and ran over to make sure everyone was okay.  When we drove up it looked like they were trying to get someone out that was trapped in the car.
When he got there he found out it was just a woman trying to reach something that was in the car.  We brought her a drink of water and we started gathering her scattered belongings.  Turns out she didn't make the turn well, over-corrected (I think) and rolled her car.

I was so proud of Dad for getting out there to help.  The cops didn't seem to thrilled that people stopped to help, but it worked out.  They saved the day after we left. Hehe.

Lego Build

Hello Kidlets:
 We haven't been able to go to the Lego build for five months.  This time we met some other friends.
 And we built them outside the Lego store (which we've never done before).
We are excited about the changes. It will be great to be able to schedule a time in the future.
