Ultimate Babies

Today we went out to cheer on Mama as she had a double header of ultimate games.  We only stayed for 1 game, but the girls were glued to the action, and just loved taking it all in.  We set up a tent too and played in there for a bit, but they really just wanted to be outside watching the game despite the rain- girls after my own heart!

Kitty Cat K

Yesterday, Katherine insisted that we go visit the zoo.  She also insisted that she wear her Kitty Cat Katherine outfit.  Then she insisted that we only hang out by the jaguars, snow leopards, tigers, and meerkats.  We had a blast.

Swinging and Croquet

We've had some really nice sun over the weekend, which has been very welcome.  So as a result we've been taking full advantage of it and had lots of fun adventures with the girls.  Here are a bunch of shots from this weekend.  The girls played croquet (in their own way) at some friends' house during a bbq.  They also got to try a big girl swing (magically somehow they both fit in perfectly at the same time...) at our favorite park for the first time, and boy did they love it!

Girls on the Move

April showers seem to have arrived a bit early here in Seattle, so we haven't been out for too many adventures lately.  However, we've been camping and exploring and having lots of fun at home, and we're all healthy, which is great.  Annabelle is becoming quite good at walking now and Katherine loves to crawl very very fast.  Here is some video from this morning.

Still Truckin'

It's been a rough couple of weeks here at our house (as might be evidenced by the absence of updates on the blog...), but we are back on the upswing now.  I have been down for the count with a nasty case of shingles.  Fortunately the girls did not catch it (it's the same virus as chicken pox), and they got their vaccines last week, so we're really grateful that they managed to stay healthy.  Kirsten is also healthy, so we got really lucky.  Kirsten's parents were able to come help out with the girls last week, so that made things much easier.  Anyway, I'm still recovering, but we're back to mostly normal functioning at home, so that's nice. 

The girls got a huge new play structure with tents and tunnels for their birthday, and they've been really loving playing with each other and chasing each other in and around it.  Here are a few shots.
