Napa rocks

There is this fun group Facebook that we follow called "napa rocks". People paint rocks and hide them around town for other people to find. It is a super cute idea and it gets the kids and adults out of the house and doing fun things together. 

The girls paint them and hide them and then they take pictures of where they hide them and we post the pictures online with a little clue. The pictures below are the ones that Cara took of where she hid her rocks. Haha. No much of a clue there- but cute either way. 

School work

Snippets of Ryann.  Seriously this girl is awesome. Except she doesn't believe in neat handwriting or spelling. But whatever. She is still pretty cute. 

Cara's first haircut (this year)

Her first haircut by someone other than auntie Devyn!!!
She got her hair thinned too which is a relief for us all- cause this girl has HAIR!!  I guess she takes after her mama.

San Fran for a day

We took the kids to San Francisco to walk across the Golden Gate Bridge. 
The kids were good sports and we had a lot of fun. 

Especially since we bribed them with ice cream! 

Red head

I went very red with my hair recently and I figure I would show solidarity for the two gingers in my family. I have since toned it down a little- but sure loved it while it lasted. 

Swim team

We have tried for some time to find a niche for Ryann. Ryann is amazing. She is a thinker- she ponders and doesn't react quickly. She is helpful and tries to find better ways to do things. She has her own timeline and somehow makes it all work during the chaos of our home and family. 

However,  She isn't super self motivated, she isn't very coordinated, didn't have fun at softball, lives in her own little bubble, didn't want to do soccer--- but along came the swim team--- and we thought we would try it out. She is getting better and better each day and she doesn't ever complain about it!!! It helps she swims with some cute boys I am sure. But she also is able to do things at her own pace. Hopefully she continues to like it- but if she doesn't then there is always basketball- right?
Here we are trying on swim caps. 


Bring your own cup day at 7-11 was a hit for rich and the kids!!
Even when I am at work dad still does fun things!

First day of school

I feel like school started forever ago! I guess time sure does fly bye. It is harder to find time to blog now that I am not pumping each night at work. But either way- here are a couple pictures of my big girls starting school. Cara is second grade and Ryann is fourth grade.

Hand me downs

Literally the best day of my girls' lives is when we get hand me downs. It is a major fashion show and they are in heaven. 

My little gymnast

My Cara is getting ready to "test" next week to see if she moves up a level in gymnastics. Less than a year and she is hoping to move up to level II. She goes twice a week, loves it, and hardly ever complains. 

Best day of work ever

My very first day off orientation at Kaiser was with my dad and my two sisters. How exciting is that? It was a great night and what love and support I felt the whole time.
