and......I'm back....

This poor, little ole' blog has been lonely....
No worries...I'm back.

I spent the last week with these lovely ladies in Mexico.
No kids. No husbands.
Just great friends, family, conversations, drinks, sleep, sun and no place to be but poolside. 

And releasing baby Tortuga's into the Pacific ocean.
Yes! It was amazing!

These little cuties are collected when they are still in their soft white shell and transferred to a safe location. 
There they spend 45 days give or take a day.

The evening that we watched the above turtles hatch, we helped release 300 little Tortuga's to be free in the Pacific. 
So cool!

Go, Go Go!

Don't laugh too hard...
I was super excited and the picture was taken with a iPhone.

Once home I had to figure out how to be a mom and a wife again.

It was hard...
For 5 days I always had somebody saying "Whatever you want."
Now I know what it is like to be one of my kiddos.

Thank God she she waited until the day I came home to do this.

She is such an amazing little 4 1/2 year old. 
Tuesday she told us that she didn't want training wheels on her "princess bike."
By Wednesday she was riding around the skate park like an old pro.

I love my vacations but I love being home with my family even more.

Now off to bed...

first grade....

This awesome kid started first grade today.
And there where tears...from me.
Colin was totally cool about the whole thing.
He was a little nervous. 
The only way I could tell was that he was very quiet and picking at his thumb nail.

This year he {we} are lucky because this super cool dude is in his class with him.
{note the thumb picking. Totally my fault, I will admit it}

Off he went to his future of all day school, packed lunches and more time away from me then with me during the day.
{cue: sobbing}

Once at his desk he found a bag of treasures his super cool teacher had left for him.
Teachers are so awesome.

6 hours and 40 min. later his school day was over and with camera in hand I was the first mamma waiting outside the classroom door.
Phew...Only more then I can count days to go.

Next stop, our new tradition {thanks to Aunt Sally for the awesome idea}.
Chocolate cream pie. yum, yum, yummy!

We all made it through the day and are ready for tomorrow....
such a great kid

I linked this post up over at mama kats
JDaniel4's Mom's back to school link up
There should have been a cute picture here for their link ups but blogger wasn't cooperating

Perfect long weekend...

Our weekend started out perfect.
Leftover donuts and tea{water}. yum.

Next stop was an amazing cruise around Lake Union and Lake Washington to Celebrate Doug's parents 50th Anniversary.

Molly came for pictures at the beginning and then went home with my sister.
The boat ride would have been way to hard with her.
Colin and Em did awesome.

Can anyone guess who's home this is.

Here is a hint...Microsoft...

One of the many great parts of the cruise.

Even Emilie's doll {Dora} got to drive the boat.

Can't beat the Seattle skyline.
{taken on my iPhone}

The next day Doug and I left the kiddos with my mom and headed home to get ready for a dinner party with  5  fantastic couples at the amazing B family's home.
It was such a great night!
Fantastic food, drinks and company.

Sunday we heading back up north to get the kiddos and head over to a fun BBQ with family.
We then spent Monday doing nothing but enjoying the sun.
I was also trying not to think about the fact that Colin is starting first grade Tuesday.
First grade....
At school all day...
There is going to be a lot of tears flowing for this Mamma tomorrow.
Before that happens Doug and the kiddos had some more backyard fun.

Hope everyone had a great Labor day weekend.
I know we did.
