getting back in the groove

I have a lot of pictures to post and stories to tell but I'll just start with these since the dishes aren't going to wash themselves and I have to get to bed so I can be on my A game tomorrow because we're getting our carpets cleaned so we need to be out of the house most of the day. I'm kind of a home body and we have a lot of naps to take between the three of us girls (just kidding, I don't usually nap these days) so it's going to be tricky for me. Anyway, I'll start with just a few highlights and my fav sequence of family pics:

 We went to Utah for the 4th of July and Grandma Hawkins was there and the kids mauled her.  I wasn't there to witness this and when I saw the pics at first I thought this was Mads. 

After a stay in Modesto (which I'll post more about later) we went to beeeaaautiful Oregon and played with the Johnstons. 

so many cousins!
And now we're home and quite happy about it. 


  1. Thanks for the update. I love the family photos. We haven't attempted family photos in awhile, but I'm sure they would go something like that. Your kids are too cute and getting so big! You seem to be doing well with 3 kids. 3 kids is no joke, I'm a witness. But you make it look good. Miss you!

  2. Cute pictures! You look great! We were out of town for the 4th this year, but let's not let you visit Utah without hanging out again, okay? I miss you.
