Life. Goals.

I've kind of been avoiding this little blog. Honestly, every time I thought about opening it, it would make my heart hurt. I keep thinking about how I should have been better at documenting the last few years. All those precious moments now lost, not even my brain can find them.

Some friends and I were discussing how 2 & 3 year olds are kind of crazy. Since Aiko will be turning four this year, I was like "I honestly can't remember any bad times from her being 2 & 3." I really can't, nor can I remember specific good times.

So now, I've decided we need to start fresh and begin all over again.

Aiko is now 3 1/2 and Orion is a month away from being 2. They are crazy little chatter boxes. The past few weeks have been a blur. Hali's wedding, family visiting, house full of sickness, husbands birthday. It's all been crazy.

The husband turned 34 this year. 

 Aiko and Orion are quite the little singers now. They love to sing ABCs and Happy Birthday. I was quite surprised to learn that Orion knows the ABC song.

Eagle Ridge Ranch

So, my siblings and I like to think that we are fisherman. We all love to fish, but rarely do we catch a fish. My three siblings had been fishing the night before, with nothing to bring home. Then, we went to a place where giant rainbow trout live and where fishing is illegal. I tell you what, it almost broke them.

So, Hali found this place that had it all. You paid $25 (for the whole fam) to go fishing on their recently stocked lake, included all the fishing poles, boats and life jackets.  Plus they have horse rides, a rope swing and a bunch of other activities. It's a good thing thing we found this place, because an all out war was about to happen. Hali all about skipped down the hill with her fishing pole with so much excitement.

Once everyone started fishing and playing in the water, all was happy. 

This place was really cool. While it was muddy, and we maybe have gotten Mama's car stuck, it was pretty peaceful.

Here I was trying to take a picturesque photo and I get this.

Little stinker could have cared less about being on the water, she just wanted to be in the boat.

When it was time to leave, we somehow got lucky to be in the car when they rounded up all the horses.

Aiko about fell over with how cool it was...or maybe me.

They were coming on all sides and then this little guy just meanders by.

 Two fish were caught, which, you had to pay an additional $5 per fish, but the siblings were happy.

Day at the Park

This park is always empty!

Swings, Basketball hoops and a toddler playground. 

It may be missing parts here and there, but Aiko doesn't mind.
