The best thing my Mom ever gave me

When I was growing up I always felt jipped because we had such a big family, (5 kids total) and most of my friends only had one other sister or brother that was way older and they never had to share any of their stuff and they rarely fought with that sibling. And to be completely honest, Holly, Kiran and I didn't get along all that well when we were kids, but now.... they are undoubtedly my closest friends and the best thing my Mom ever gave me.
Last week I went to visit Kiran in Arizona and we had a blast. I love her, her beautiful daughters, and her lovely home We had a great time, it is hard to imagine that I was once bitter that my Mom had "too many kids" and it gives me great hope that my boys will become great friends one day..... Someday.

My stunning sister.
This is the night I got home, I brought the kids toys and treats, they were so happy to see me and all the candy Kiran and I picked out for them.

I baked cookies and brownies with Kiran's kids. We had a lot of fun in the kitchen.

My favorite time of the day, pool time!

Spring Break 2011

Spence had some business to do in Seattle so I decided to tag along and take the kids to the Seattle Science Center, the Pike Place Market and swim at the hotel pool. Doing it by myself was pretty hard but worth it, at least to know that it's not really worth it to take my kids to museums yet.
This is us getting up really really early to take Spence to the University of Washington. My kids all time favorite thing to do, swim at hotel pools!

The Seattle Science Center

They couldn't stand the fish smell at the Pike Place Market,

they kept asking if they could wait in the car.

At least I tried.
