Bubble Bath

Camden taking his first ever bubble bath. I think it was a hit.

Why didn't we add bubbles sooner?


Easter weekend started with a chocolate bunny sent to us in the mail. Could Camden look any more excited about this chocolate bunny?

It seems the chocolate bunny was a hit, and we are still eating it today.
Saturday morning we headed over to a local park for the annual Easter egg hunt in our neighborhood. This was our first year to participate, because Easter was so early last year Camden wasn't even walking. We were not to miss this year rain or shine!

Unfortunately the forecast called for rain. We headed out a half an hour early to get our spot. We were told that the hunt starts at 10AM sharp and the eggs go fast. The weather seemed to hold off until three minutes to 10am. Then is started pouring. The hunt started 5-10 minutes late so Camden was not impressed with this family outing. It was so cold and rainy that Camden's little hands were too cold to pick up eggs. He ended up pointing to eggs and we picked them up for him. That's Easter in the Northwest for you!

All of the eggs for the 1-3 year olds.

Sunday wasn't any better. Luckily all of our activities were indoors. In the morning we headed to Church as a family. We came home for brunch and gave Camden his Easter basket. He seemed really excited about this.

The Easter bunny seemed to be a big fan of bath time. Camden got special Elmo bubble bath, along with bath fizzes that change the water colors and crayons for the bath. They have all been a big hit at our house. He also got some books and chalk. The Easter bunny even brought Camden some candy.

Then it was time for a quick nap and off to my Sister's for Easter dinner with the rest of the family. We even arranged to have an indoor Easter egg hunt for Camden and his cousin. Camden had a fun time searching the house for the eggs and putting them in his basket. His cousin Peanut searched in his basket for all of her eggs. In the end everyone got plenty of sweet treats.

The best part of the weekend was getting to tell our families that we are expecting our second little boy at the end of the summer. It was a nice way to end the weekend. We are excited to welcome this little boy into our family.


It seems lately I have a helper with whatever task I am doing. My little Camden is one step behind me with his miniature cleaning supplies helping me. I can't seem to vacuum, mop, sweep, dust or iron without some help. It really is cute. Cleaning does seem to take twice as long with my helper, but I am happy to have him by my side. At least for now he likes to clean, let's see what happens in a few years.

Camden takes a turn ironing after I am finished. He has a miniature iron that looks exactly like mine. A birthday gift from his Granna and Pop.

Renewing Vows

At the end of March we were honored to be invited to my Great Aunt and Uncles 60th Wedding anniversary and renewal of their vows. We were very excited to be there for this special day in their lives. I have many memories with my Aunt and Uncle spending time at their lake house in Maple Valley. It was special to see all the family that had gathered to witness this special moment. It was held at a camp in Cle Elum that my great grandfather helped to build. My Great Aunt and Uncle also spent many summers working with kids at this camp. It was truly a special place for them to renew their commitment to each other.
