A Most Fabulous Birthday!

Yesterday was a great birthday for me. It was beautiful weather in Washington....Church was great...Kade slept in his big boy bed for the first time on Saturday night....we had a little birthday party after church with Derek and Alissa (complete with cake even)....Got a good Sunday afternoon nap....and Kyle and I got to go on a date! What more could a girl ask for?
Here are a few pics of the day:

Everyday is a New Adventure

Thought I would send out a few new pictures from our world the past couple of days. Last Saturday we got to go to a college football game....local college here (PLU)....a kid we know from Spiro goes to school there and is on the football team. His family came up for the game and we got to spend some time with them on Saturday and Sunday. Derek and Alissa arrived on Saturday night and we are glad that they are here now. The rest of our "stuff" got here on the moving truck Monday. Now I feel like I'm starting all over again with the unpacking and figuring out where to put things. Kyle has been busy doing all the things that I can't the roof...painting Kade's room....putting together Kade's furniture, etc. I've been doing laundry and chasing Kade around.

Kade got some new rain boots from C.G. today...He loves them!!!

A wagon ride to the mailbox

Kade thinks he needs to check out all the mail first.

Kyle on top of the roof trying to clean the gutters and remove the moss.

Kade was very excited that "D" and "Lissa" got here. He quickly had them become a part of his band!
Another pic of Kade and his new rainboots.

Watching the football game on Saturday.

Daddy and Kade getting a closer look at the game.

Hanging out with our friends at the game.

A view of Mt. Ranier from our city...look over the tree tops. It wasn't the best day to see the mountain but it was still breathtaking.

Kade sporting his Arkansas gear. I don't think he has any idea how far away we really are from Arkansas. The plane ride wasn't that long.

Kade wanted to sit in his monkey's lap while he watched me clean up.

Happy Early Birthday to me!

Today was a great day because I got a very special EARLY Birthday present in the mail. A New Camera!!! Thanks Mom and Dad. I also got a really cool new rain coat and matching rain boots. Kade really liked the rain boots and wanted me to wear them all day. Anyway, we had a chance to get out and take a few pictures around our new town. Hope you enjoy!

We've made it to Washington!

Well, here we go....jumping into the wonderful world of blogging. So many people have been kind enough to request that we keep in touch that we figured the easiest way to do so was to start a blog. So, here we are in Washington...11 days now and still unpacking boxes. We love our new house and Kade seems to be adjusting well. Our camera suffered some damage on its journey to Washington and only takes periodic photos and they never seem to be the "best" photo ops. All that to say that we have a couple of pictures of Kade at the pumpkin patch but that's about it for now. When we get a new camera (that my mom is so kind to send as an early birthday present) we will be sure to get more pics on this fabulous new blog of ours! Love to all of you from miles across the country!
