Family


This spring was full of house adventures and Ivan learning new things like allen wrench and how to find studs.  We continued to work hard on the house and got so much more motivated once we scheduled our deck to be torn down and rebuilt. We had fun swimming in the indoor pools at the rec centers here where we live now and playing outside with friends. My parents passed through here in April shortly after the MCC sale and our spring ended with a boys camping trip and a girls weekend with my good friend from Kansas City. The summer has been full of house projects to get ready for our open house.  Ivan has enjoyed VBS, swimming, house projects of his own, and playing with friends. We’ve also been out of town visiting family in BV and spending time in the mountains to get away. It is hard to believe it is the middle of July already and it feels like the summer is already gone when it barely came…..oh well we have had fun.

Better late than never, but I’m finally getting our blog update. We were able to be with Nick’s family over Easter.  His sister, Leia, and her kids from Italy were visiting so we all flew down to Phoenix, where his sister Abby lives, for the Easter weekend and beyond. Nick took a couple of days off work then worked from AZ for a couple of days. It was great to hang out with everyone.

My parents were still parked in AZ so we slept there and had breakfast with them, other than that didn’t really see them as Ivan would fall asleep before we got back for the night.  He had so much fun playing with all his cousins all day it wore him out.  We also highlighted the Zoo, Phoenix Science Center, playgrounds, parks and Abby’s pool.

So much fun!

We are so fortunate to have grandparents and great-grandparents around for Ivan to know and be loved on. This winter we had a few visits and Ivan enjoyed all the extra attention. We also got to attend Uncle Alex’s soccer games which Ivan enjoyed as well.

Ivan and I were in AZ for Thanksgiving and about 2 weeks around the holiday.  Nick’s sister and family moved down to Phoenix this summer so it was fun to visit them and the cousins had fun playing together.  While we were there we visited the zoo, Christmas lights on Natal Circle in Mesa, train park and lots of time swimming and playing outside with cars, trucks and the trampoline. Nick and his Dad joined the family for the holiday.  We had fun being together! So thankful that we have family and places to travel for all kinds of adventures.

Thankful for a dad/papa who travels to see us!

Thankful for friendship of cousins. Sometimes it’s a love and sometimes it’s a hate but mostly they get along really well. 

I am thankful for my parents who are terrific grandparents who want to play and love our son. We have been playing blocks, swimming and now a new Bean bag game.
