Just a quick blog to let you know that I haven't forgotten about you. I have lots of catching up to do and I plan to do it. Really I do!
The main reason for the delay in posts is our recent move. We have relocated to Cleveland, Ohio. We are living with my parents right now. Even though we have been here two months, I still feel like we are getting settled. I am going to upload pictures and start blogging again soon.
For now, I am off to find my USB cord to download some pictures! Which box was that in again?? :)

Ballard Locks. This is a cool place because they lift or lower boats depending on which way they are going. They do this because Lake Washington and Lake Union are fresh water and the Puget Sound is sea water. The boys really enjoyed seeing the boats being raised and lowered.

We were lucky enough to have Grandma Marnie and Grandpa Richard stay with us for a few days. While they were here we saw CARS 2, visited Pike's Place Market, played Yahtzee, visited Gas Works Park, ate at Claim Jumpers and lots more! Most importantly we celebrated Meghan's 1st birthday. We packed a lot into 4 days. Brandon and I even got to get out by ourselves.

Meghan was blessed with love from many people. We are so appreciative of that.

Owen was so proud of himself and he should be. He did great this year. He is growing up to be such a neat little boy.

Discovery Park. We had a great time enjoying nature. It is always nice to get outside and get some exercise. The boys had a blast exploring the trails. Meghan took it all in from her stroller. We even stopped to play on the playground. Which the boys turned into a pirate ship. (Of course!) I wonder what the world would be like if adults could imagine and play like little children.

June 4th was our last T-Ball game. The season ended with trophies and a party at Dairy Queen. The boys both loved their trophies. I would say that the season was a success. I think we will probably try it again next year. Here are some pictures from our last game.

Over Memorial Day weekend we packed up the whole family and headed south. We spent three nights on the Oregon Coast in Lincoln City, Oregon. It was such a special family time. When it was raining we toured the Tillamook Cheese Factory and a petting zoo.
The weather did clear up for us and we spent a lot of time on the beach. The boys really liked building sand castles and finding seashells. They really liked watching people fly kites on the shore. We even saw some wind surfers.

It is Easter time! So we needed to celebrate. Our day was both fun and relaxing. We went to church in the morning and spent the rest of the day relaxing. We had the big dinner with ham, potatoes, vegetables, rolls, cake and sparkling juice. The boys have taken to calling sparkling juicy, spicy juice.
Leap Frog Scout. It is a pretty cool toy. It is a stuffed animal that you program with their name and favorite things. Then the dog sings songs about them. Of course, their baskets were filled with Malley's Chocolate. It is a tradition. Thankfully, my parents brought it with them when they visited. Each kid also got a new T-shirt, which lined the bottom of their Easter basket. (I am not a fan of Easter grass!)

T-Ball has begun! This year both the boys are playing on the same team. Owen really seems interested in it. I think he enjoys it because he tries hard and learns all that he can. Seamus is still getting the hang of it. He is not really interested in it yet. He prefers to pick grass in the outfield rahter than pay attention to where the ball is. He is only three though. Maybe he will get it or maybe we will try soccer!!

Being the great dad that he is, Brandon helps the boys in the outfield. Meghan and I cheer from the side line. T-Ball is an entertaining sport. I give the coaches credit. It is not easy to wrangle 3 & 4 year olds into a functioning team. I am thankful they are trying though!
