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!!" :)

Outdoor Fun

The weather here has been beautiful the past few days --- cold -- but beautiful!!! I have been taking advantage of every minute of it :) Here are the kids playing with an awesome toy they got for Xmas (Thanks Melissa!). It is a Stomp Rocket --- the kids stomp on that red foot thing and the rocket goes flying up in the air (and then they chase after it, repeat over and over, and get really tired in the process). Highly recommend this toy --- Endless fun!!
Since Travis and I both had today off, we made plans to head to Snoqualmie for some snow tubing. We had a blast! I was surprised how big the hill was, and surprised how fast we went! We all rode with the kids on our laps (Jim and Lucy were there, too) -- and they were smiles from ear to ear :) We also got a workout -- instead of using the "tow lane" (which has hooks that pull you back up the hill), most of the time we opted to skip the line and make the trek back up the hill on foot... pulling the kids in the tube behind us!!

Noah totally reminded me of Randy from A Christmas Story...
Back to work tomorrow -- Travis has more travel again (he gets back Saturday)... so it is going to be a busy week!

So glad you are having so much fun with the stomp rocket! It's genius isn't it?

Sorry I missed out on the fun snow day, but I think it would have been a bit cold for Charlie. Sounds like it was FUN!

Snow tubing sounds sooo fun! I totally have to see if there is some place around here to do that.
