Orcas Island in the COLD

Thomas and I(and the baby) got to get away this last weekend. Our wonderful friends, the Simmons have a time share and we all decided it was a nice time to have a little break. We ended up going to Orcas Island in the San Jauns. It was so very beautiful albeit so very cold. We saw deer, bald eagles, beautiful views, and the stars at night. But best of all I got to spend time with my sweet, wonderful husband. I am so blessed to have so many beautiful people in my life. My mom came down to Tacoma and stayed with Marley, Townsend, Aislyn, and Jairus. They love her so much, she is such a fun grandma.

The other day I was feeling extra adventurous and decided to take the kids for a walk/bikeride/heely time at the waterfront. I always forget that it is WAY colder there than just outside my front door. So I ended up ditching the walk part and let the kids play while I snuggled on a log with the baby.

It's funny whenever I take all the kids out at one time I get the most awe struck stares. And then of course "Boy, you have your hands full, don't you?" I forget that five children is a lot.

I do have my hands full. But most of the time it's pretty fun. Entertaining at the very least.
