Way too long, but i'm back! I had been so overwhelmed with client sessions on my business side to even think about blogging for fun but I need to. I need to document that YES my kids have a life and a fun one at that!
So with that, i'll be back to regular scheduled blogging :)
that I do something with the all the photos I have from our extended stay in Kona. I'm not sure what exactly I want to do with all these pics yet but for now I'm just going to throw them up here in a sort of photo explosion and maybe eventually i'll get around to telling some stories.
So here we are, yes, again in Kona. I packed up the two littles and headed across the ocean where we set up a tempory residence for the next few weeks. Justin and Koren will join us as soon as school gets a little closer to break and in the mean time me and the kids will be doing a little bit of everything. The first couple of days have been nothing but R&R :)
well I have written this blog post 3 times now, walked away from my computer and forgot to save. Come back to everything being gone. I've lost all my amibition to tell a funny story, or how it's snowing like crazy out and this was our last playdate at the park before the reality of winter sets in. Or how I've survived Justin's South Dakota trip like a champ. I'll just share a few photos.
lol, really it wasn't that exciting. The kids and I all seem to have a cold, the smoke had finally left town, it was on the verge of raining, so what did we do? We called TT and headed to the pumpkin patch.
Needing to do something outside we headed to Malaga where the kids were able to run around the fields, forced to take a few photos with mom, navigate through the "corn dog maze" then only manage one major T-Meltdown before promised blizzards at DQ on the way home.
Another year, another trip to the Wings and Wheels Carnival at the Eastmont County Park. If you see, this is sort of a tradtion for us. Last year looked like THIS. TT and Auntie Kristi love to come and spoil the kids to no end on all the waste-of-money carnival games while I give in and pick up wrist bands for them to ride the few rides they are actually tall enough for. Our besties joined us again this year and lilttle brother and Londyn picked up on how much fun this even actually is...well that was until Lockie realized that they wouldn't let him ride the rides, then he was pretty much pissed off the whole night.
Friday Kristi and I loaded up the monkeys and headed for the Everett Children's Museum: Imagine That.
It was fantastic, so much better than the Seattle Children's Museum. There was so much do and all the kids had fun, even Koren where I was a bit worried would be a little too old to enjoy. We will be going back fo sho. lol.
So here we are, day whatever of living in what feels like the world's largest campfire. I'm not a complainer, actually people who are annoy me, but this is just terrible. I've got a nasty headache, my eyes burn, the kids are wheezing, I had to bloody run on the treadmill today, and they say there is no end in sight. I heard someone say today that it could be November before the smoke clears. WTF?! All outdoor activities have been cancelled. We are supposed to be in the middle of a crazy busy soccer season and instead we are going through our craft supplies as if there has been a blizzard outside. Anyway..enough complaining here.
I think tomorrow a couple of the monkeys are going to head west witih Kristi. If I can get this house cleaned and my work done I may just join them. Saturday and Sunday I get to spend in the Yakima Valley shooting a gorgeous wedding and hopefully breathing a little easier.
