I had to post this picture of my two cuties. I love both of their buns and they are completely different. They both LOVE bath time and they are becoming such good friend.

Don't you just want to pinch them!!!

Oregon Camping Trip

Our camping extravaganza started with an all night drive to Portland. It was nice for the girls because they slept the whole time, but we were able to stop for a couple of hours and sleep too, for the most part! The girls did a lot better than we thought they would and it was nice to be able to make good time and just get there already!
Then a couple days later we headed out to the Oregon coast. Fort Stevens, to be exact. Now I don't remember all of the names of the places we visited, so Kevin might have to come on later and fix my descriptions. The camp sites were awesome and the beach was nothing like California. But I loved how green it was there. Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure:

Our first night we went to the beach. It was beautiful, but no California beach!

Mommy and Hannah

Peyton absolutely loved the beach. She kept putting the sand over her feet and wiggling it between her toes.

Hannah liked the beach too, although I didn't put her down because I didn't want her eating the sand.

So, instead, she tried to eat the pine cones!

Kevin's dad didn't last long the first day we were there!
Setting up camp is hard work.

Our camp site. It was really cool.

Peyton with her bucket and shovel from Grammy. She loved playing in the dirt, as you can see it is all over her face and it probably wasn't even 9am yet!

Hannah and Grammy

Kevin on the four wheelers. He loved it!

My turn!! It was actually really fun!

Kevin, Erick, and Steven

The family on the four wheeler

Chillin in the army jeep

I don't remember what this place was called, but basically an old army base thingy!

Peyton blowing kisses

"I'm free!!!" Peyton loved all of the space to run

Hannah had a really hard time with naps. Here she passed out on Kevin
The seals in Astoria, Or. They were pretty awesome and stinky!

The Astor Column

Peyton Loved this bike. She got pretty fast at it too!

The Jetty, pretty amazing

We saw a couple of whales too.

4 Wonderful Years!

Yes, I know that is has been a very very long time since we have posted anything. But before I get into our trip to Oregon I wanted to say happy anniversary to Kevin. We have been married for 4 years, today, and that is crazy to us. At times it seems like we have never been apart, and other times we feel like we have been married for 2 months.
We have had so much fun being together and are still as madly in love now as we were when we first got married, maybe even more!!!
Kevin, I love your craziness and your ability to always bring a smile to my face. You are a wonderful husband, father, and companion. I don't know what my life would be like with out you, all I know is that I would not be as happy as I am right now with you. I look forward to many more years with you and all of eternity to laugh, cry, smile, hug, kiss, and love you. I love you!

Family Pictures

Kevin wouldn't let me post these pictures until we gave them to his family. We went and got these taken about a month ago, but I think they are so cute!

My two angels!

Peyton did really well during the shoot, but she didn't smile in any of the pictures.

I absolutely love Hannah's hair in this picture. She is such a happy baby!

Fun with Family

We had the opportunity to have dinner at Kevin's brothers house this last weekend. Kevin's parents were in town for a couple of days and we enjoyed seeing them. Unfortunately we weren't able to get any pictures of them, but we did get some of the kids playing.

Peyton loved playing on the swing. I was afraid she was going to fall off, but she did a good job of holding on, and Kevin was by her every second!

I can't believe what a big girl she is becoming!

This is a broken teeter-totter. She had fun bouncing up and down on it!

Richards family has a little wiener dog and Peyton would follow it every where and try to feed it rocks. She would just laugh every time she saw Clifford (the dog)!!!

This is most of the grand kids, plus Kevin because Peyton just wanted to play on the swing. From left to right: Ryan, Caden, Corbin, Carsten, Peyton, Hannah, Emily, And Katelyn!

Easter Morning

Peyton had so much fun finding all of the Easter eggs. She would even try to count the decoration eggs as a find!

She was no dummy. She knew exactly what to do with the eggs once she found them.
Open them up and eat the yummy insides!

She isn't finding the eggs, she is stashing these eggs away for later.
We thought that was pretty clever of her!

Peyton and her Easter basket! She got a little wiener dog!

It is hard to see, but she also got a blush brush (try saying that 10 times fast)
because she is always stealing mine and my moms.
Even though she has her own she still takes ours!

She also got pretty bracelets and rings. She is becoming such a girl!

Dying Eggs

This was the first year that Peyton dyed eggs and she had so much fun. As a typical 1 and a half year old, her favorite part was trying to dye. So yucky, but she kept eating it.

Peyton stirring the dye

Peyton making sure the dye tastes right, yuck!

Heck with the spoon. My hand is a lot easier!

Pretty purple egg. You can't really see, but her hand is all purple!

Peyton wasn't the only one who liked to eat the dye.
This is Cory's hidden passion!
