One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

Thanksgiving Update

These pictures are out of the order I want them in... but Trav's computer is being temperamental, and I don't have the energy to figure it out. The puffy jacket pictures are from Seattle --- we had some really cold weather this past week, and I thought they looked cute bundled up (even though Noah is pouting/crying in his picture)
This picture is from Sacramento. We flew in last night to stay with Trav's parents for Thanksgiving. Noah was jumping in the air and throwing bark at the park. It was a beautiful day here today.

Evelyn bundled up -- notice her fleece-lined jeans. I wish they had cute & comfy jeans like that in my size!!
Park picture --- yelling "cheese" :)
I am getting excited for the weekend. Travis and I are leaving the kids with his parents and venturing down to Los Angeles for the USC/Notre Dame football game. We will spend the night there and then come back on Sunday. Hoping to get some pictures at the Coliseum & game.

The weather was dreary this past weekend -- so I had to think hard to find outdoor activities. I tend to get a little stir-crazy if I don't get fresh air and time outside. We went to feed the ducks in the drizzle/mist on Sunday afternoon.I think the ducks & seagulls were hungry... normally they stay in the water, but Sunday they were climbing out and coming up for more bread. This picture cracks me up -- Evelyn wanted to keep a close eye on the duck behind her :) The kids were very brave.

Grammy's Visit

The kids had a great time with my mom when she was in town -- one of the things that we did was visit Point Defiance Zoo/Aquarium in Tacoma. I had never been there -- we usually go to the zoo in Seattle instead. It was a beautiful day, and we all had a fun time.
The aquarium part was pretty cool -- they had divers in there with the fish/sharks doing a presentation when we got there. Noah liked when the sharks would swim by :)

My mom played with Play-doh a TON -- it is Evelyn's favorite thing to do lately. She thought my mom was the Play-doh queen :) My mom also played a little bit of CandyLand and Don't Spill the Beans with the kids. Thanks for visiting us, mom!!
