Ethan's First Day of Kindergarten

I can't believe it! My little Ethan is now a big boy kindergartener. Where does the time go? This kid couldn't be happier than he is going to school. As soon as we got to his class, he was told to go and hang up his backpack. I turned around to take his picture and he was gone. Comfortable as can be playing with the other kids. He didn't mind a bit when I told him goodbye! I have to admit, I got a little teary-eyed, but I'm just blaming it on the pregnancy hormones! lol

Ethan & Finn (could not get him out of the picture!) in front of Rees Elementry School.

Ethan's teacher Mrs. Jenkins. She is actually in our ward and lives just 2 houses down. Matt teaches Primary with her husband, and I used to visit teach her. Funny!

He found his name tag and put it right on. I have never seen Ethan smile so much for the camera. Not for anything! He must really have been excited!

The gym

Well, I did it! After 6 years I again, signed up at the gym. It was time. Being thirty and pregnant is not a good combination for a hot bod, that's for sure! I went for the first time last night and loved every minute of it! Wow, it was nice to be back at the gym working out! I sort of didn't want to leave. I think the best part about it was getting away from the house and the kids. We all need an out right?

We took a family vacation to Port Townsend, Washington this year. Can I just say it was the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation I have ever been on! Matt is still talking about it. We want to go back! 
Please note that I look like death in all these pictures, because I was still sick and pukey!
This is the pier that was on the little private beach just behind our timeshare. It was beautiful!

We hiked in the forest...yes the forest where Edward roams!
This tree was over 550 years old. HUGE! That's all I can say.

We stayed in Forks one night. It was Twilight central! Every store and very window had something twilight in it. Even the Mexican restaurant we went to had a poster of Edward in the window. So hilarious!

La Push. This place is breathtaking! The beach, the fog, the neat!

If you like crab, this is your place. There were crab everywhere! Every morning the tide would be so far out, and sea life were everywhere. Matt and Ryan found tons of shells, crabs, sand dollars, star fish, an eel, fish, clams........

Ethan eating what else......McDonalds on the beach.
The Perfect Life!

This was the Marine Life center where the kids could see and touch all kinds of sea critters.

This picture is blury, but I just had to show how huge this star fish was!
Thanks Mom for making this possible for everyone! We had the best time and will never forget it!
