Life lately

We are on day four of our quarantine and Andy left this morning for a 48 hour shift. I'm not super looking forward to these next two days, but I'm going to try and stay productive and have some fun with the kiddos. It has been pretty nice weather so walks are nice and our I'm so grateful for our backyard. Pippa is on the mend and she seems to be back to her normal self, which is awesome because she was pretty cranky for a few days.
At least we have some fun coming up this weekend, Auntie Liz is coming to stay with us and we are celebrating her 8th birthday! She was born on leap year, so it's pretty exciting that we get to celebrate her real birth date. Yay Liz!
These photos are from weeks ago when the snow was still melting and it was cold.
Peek-a-boo with daddy is the best.
All the snow is melted now and yesterday we were even working outside in our t-shirts!


Trip to Tonasket

The last weekend of January we took a drive up to Tonasket to visit Andy's sister for the weekend. During our trip we decided to take the kids skiing! I really was not expecting it to go well, seeing as it can get very emotional when you try to get Charlie to do something he doesn't want to do. And he definitely didn't want to ski. Actually, it was just the renting of the skis and boots that was the issue. After he settled down for a few hours he actually went down the hill a few times! The bunny hill, but still! I was very impressed and can't wait to try again. 
Getting ready to leave :)
Auntie Liz is the best. Seriously.
This was right after the renting of the said boots and skis. Notice Charlie is not happy. At all.
Andy and Charlie going down the hill!
I mean, look at that smile!
I think this was when we told him to clean up his toys :|


Charlie at Chuck E Cheeses

Chuck E Cheeses has been a favorite of Charlie's since we first went a year and a half ago. He doesn't actually enjoy Chuck E though. Like he is deathly afraid of him. We have to shield him from the mouse at all costs or else he will turn into a nervous wreck, which did happen for the last 10 minutes of his party. But here are some photos from before the mouse, when he was as happy as can be.

Aiden didn't enjoy the ride as much

Charlie did this automatically and I thought it was pretty sweet


Charlie's 3rd Birthday

I'm back! Took a bit of a break for no reason and now Pip has contracted hand, foot, and mouth disease so we are quarantined to our house for the next week or so. Thankfully Charlie had it last year so we don't have to worry about him getting it too, since you can only get it the once. The weather has been getting warmer so we've been playing in our backyard quite a bit, which is awesome and will definitely help with our quarantine. Here's to a quick recovery!
Charlie turned three back in January and still thinks his birthday celebrations are going strong in February. We had his party at a Chuck E Cheeses and ended up going again this week for family being in town, and he was convinced it was his birthday again. Guess he'll figure it out eventually :)
