January happenings

Here are a few things we were up to in the first month of 2014.
I met some of my favorite Paleo food bloggers and authors at a bookstore with my friend Emily.
Elliott napped on his new Thomas the Tank Engine nap mat made by Gramma
more like Nick did the napping
Quite a few beach trips for Penny! She loves the water.

The view on our hike back from the beach

Oliver learned how to play SPOONS.
Nick got a new (temporary) hairdo.
Elliott cut paper
And Oliver cut fabric (making a tie for Nick)
sunny walk to the farmer's market
Oliver glued a lot of Popsicle sticks (here he's making a box)
a visit from Oma (and painting bird houses)
tree climbing
too cute in their new workout clothes from Oma

Elliott tries to copy Nick's funny face

and is looking so cute after his bath
walking to preschool on pajama day
pre-bedtime run to the store with Nick in matching pjs

and one of Oliver's outfits of the day!


The boys love to wear matching shirts and in fact dress the same about 50% of the time. It's a cute phase and I doubt it will last for too long. Here are some pictures of them in matching blue button down shirts.

Happy 2014!

Wow, January is over and I didn't manage a single post! We had a busy and fun-filled January and started New Year's Day off with a trip to Zoo Lights at the Woodland Park Zoo.We thought we might beat the crowds by waiting until after Christmas, but apparently New Year's day is a very popular time to go. We still had a great time!
