Kardyn turns 3

 So even though we are moved and all settled in, I still feel stressed. I think it's because I haven't had much time to just sit. So for Kardyn's birthday this year, I just thought we'd take it easy. I wasn't in the mood for some gigantic cake or a huge party, so I made this instead. A cute little owl and it was super easy and fast. Plus she loved it, that's all the matters.
 We went to a local park and had a few families come for a BBQ and cake. It was nice, and quiet! I honestly don't think I'm ready for the huge friend party thing yet anyway. I don't know what I'm going to do when it comes time for that.

 On the way over to the park, she asked if she could eat his eye ball. Nice.

 She got lots of barbies this year because....

 we got an AMAZING deal on this barbie house before we left Utah. Seriously, KSL is the best ever.
 She was so surprised. We had it set up for her to see when we came home after her party

 At least it matches her yellow room! hahaha...anyway, I don't think a day has gone by this week that she hasn't spent at least an hour in her room playing with it. I can't believe my baby is 3 years old already!

since we've been back

 One of the first weekends here was free fishing weekend! We took the kids to Willow Lake, we didn't catch anything, but they had fun anyway.

 Rogue Valley Tennis Club was doing a free Tennis camp thing for kids to see if they would be interested in playing tennis or not. So I took Chase and he had so much fun. He got to play for 2 hours. I'd like to sign him up for some classes this summer, so we'll see! Almost every morning he wakes up he asks if "it's a tennis day."

The pictures are kinda blurry b/c I was up in this room above to courts so he was pretty far away

Mesa Verde part 5

we celebrated a few birthdays while in CO, so we stopped to get ice cream and open presents

where's the dog?
All in all we had a super fun time on vacation with our family. Once we got home it was a mad rush to load our moving truck and make the long trek to Oregon. We've been here about a week now and are mostly unpacked. This place is quite a bit smaller than our last, so it's been nice because I've actually left lots of boxes still packed. We've already had fun seeing our friends and the kids have been to the park a few times with them already. The weather here is beautiful and we even roasted marshmallows over a fire last night with the Skabelund's. We are so happy to be back!

Mesa Verde part 4

 I think this dwelling was called Balcony House, Chase loved going up the tall ladder

 This pic is funny, Chase and Eve said that they were acting out the Shield Dance that we had seen the day before, kids are so cute
 So the house we rented was pretty cool, but the books....were kinda creepy
