Father's Day 2017

Time keeps on flying by.  10 years ago we got engaged.  My oh my a lot has changed since then!

The girls are proud owners of fidget spinners.  Sally bought one for she and Libby and we got one for Emma so she didn't feel left out.  They're pretty fun.

No baby was injured on the filming of this video ;)

 "Wear my hat like Daddy's"
 This was Daddy's when he was little
 Watering her tomato plant
 Hollywood! Did I mention on here that the kiddos were on the Jason's show a while back?  Check out The Jason Show's facebook page and you can watch the clip on the kiddos at the park with him.
 Gray Grizzly, up to bat.  Go Libs Go
 Park a holics


Loves his tummy
 Libby styled my hair
 A gift from Kari, it finally fits!
 Look at that hair...the best thing I did for this girl was cut it
 My girl on 2nd
 A great read.  Enjoying our summer book study with church friends!
 In honor of Father's Day.  Sheila text this the other night.  I just love it.  That's my dad!  I'm right behind him, probably similar age to Sally and/or Libby!
 "and I sought for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the breach before me for the Lord." -Ezekiel 22:30

He is our strong and faithful leader.  We all adore him and are forever grateful for all that he sacrifices, to provide for us.  Our children are richly blessed because he is their father.  We love him, always!

Craigmile Crew, strong selfie game ;)

I think I'm caught up, yahoo!

SInk or Swim

I kicked off our 1st week of summer with all 4 home, all day, every day, with Reid on a work trip...

Sink or swim, baby.  Taking this week as a badge of freaking honor.  I kicked it's butt ;)

Taking 4 kiddos to the Chiropractor is how I roll...for an hour, twice a week!  Rehab and adjustment, I'm on my last leg, I'm almost fixed! I get to go out with a bang.  I'm sure you're jealous :)

 Just sending Daddy a little picture of what it means to have all 4 along

Mornings are always my favorite:


Send Daddy this picture and say "Go Bikings"
 Daddy usually plays the games at night, Mommy was on all day er day
 We were finally able to get together with the Martionson Ladies!! It's not easy coordinating schedules when you have babies 9 weeks apart.  We talk a lot, but hadn't been able to get the crew allll together.  Tuesday, we finally made it happen and it was great.  Happy Tears!

Lunch time
 Miss Mia!
 Lunch time outside
 Baby Hog! She would rather take her suit off and be inside with the babies
 Double time
 Mason & Mia, I think they're gonna have fun together!

 Hey, we're gonna give our moms a run for their money once all of our siblings are gone at school. Deal?
 Of course the girls wanted a turn holding her too!

 We upgraded our backyard pool.  We had a lot of fun.  It's not so fun having to empty it and put it away
 Oh Mr. Brecken how I love you.  He needs some Boggles!
 We take walks as often as we can.  Usually it's right after Mason wakes up from a nap, and sometimes he takes another while on the walk.  Love the many route options around our house.

Crushin' Zzzs

 Every night I'm in awe of how well we can get 4 kids to bed and stay sleeping until 7am.
These two have a secret connection.  They always seems to find each other and they often never cause each other any trouble, they might have some fun days ahead with some of their siblings start school
 One morning I needed a little extra coffee.  Mason was off his schedule and it was opposite when a thunderstorm hit.  Didn't get as many Zzzs as I would have liked.  Oh well, it's a short stage of life. Enjoying the one on one time in the mornings with my little dude, they're quite peaceful.

Yes, I have more cream than coffee.
 Happy Flag Day, a favorite spot for the little Man.  Makes Daddy happy
 Sally was at a birthday party.  Bedtime stories outside.
 Early bird catches the worm!
 My middles, they'll keep us smiling, always


"Just a minute, can mommy have a break for just one minute?"

and then Daddy came home and all was right in the world again.
