Wear Cinderella dress and tiara most of the day
Second decision: Go to the mall (still in costume) and ride all the quarter rides and play on the kids computer in the mini library, also located in the mall
Final decision: Party!
(Here is a picture of Elisabeth with the flowers Daddy brought home for her) We love you sweetheart!

Thursday afternoon we took a little road trip, and ferry ride, over to the Olympic Peninsula where we did some camping, hiking, and site seeing. We camped in a KOA Kampground (that's how they spell it) and we absolutely loved it! I don't think I could ever go back to camping the typical way. They're located in all of the states and you can either tent camp, RV camp, or cabin/cottage/lodge camp. We stayed in a cabin for a couple of nights that had beds for all of us and electricity! Outside of each cabin was a fire pit, swing and picnic table. They also have different activities that could keep you busy all day. If you want to check out the website you can go here: www.koa.com/ Thanks to Robin and Fred for telling us about KOA!
Friday we drove down to Forks and La Push where we did some site seeing (for any of you who read Twilight or New Moon, you'll know why I had to look around there :)) and went on a hike through a beautiful forest that took us down to Second Beach in La Push. The only problem we ran into on our trip was during our 1.5 hour drive from Port Angeles to Forks, the roads were pretty curvy and when we were about 5 minutes away from Forks Elisabeth who was sitting in the back corner seat of the van puked all over herself and car seat! It was pretty nasty! We had left all extra clothes at the cabin, so we cleaned her off the best we could with baby wipes but she still wreaked so when we got to Forks we found the only shopping area, within about a 60 mile radius, and bought her a new outfit, they only had a few to choose from...down side of being in a small town I guess. Besides that, everything went smoothly and we had an awesome time! We've actually decided to make it a yearly tradition to go stay at a KOA Kampground and do some hiking.

Here is Elisabeth singing the chorus to, "Start of Something New." It's a song from the
Here are the lyrics just in case you can't quite understand what she's saying:
"I said yeah, it's the start of something new, it feels so right to be here with you, oh, and now looking in your eyes, I feel in my heart, the start of something new."

Seattle's 'craigslist' has SO much stuff, it's wonderful! Because there's SO much stuff, people sell a lot of their really nice stuff for really cheap or they'll even give it away for free; I guess they're just hoping someone will come take it off of their hands so they don't have to deal with it anymore. A couple of days ago we (Scott and I) decided that we were going to try and find some furniture items on Craigslist here before we move to Salt Lake City since we'll be moving into something that's much bigger than our 2 bedroom apartment. Now of course I searched the Salt Lake craigslist too but they just don't have much at all compared to Seattle's and because of that things are much more expensive. The items we are searching for include a bookshelf, an entertainment center armoire, and a dresser armoire for the kids room. Anyways, yesterday I found this bookshelf that was just absolutely perfect, and it was free!! I'm sure I'll be on craigslist now several times a day until I find my other items :).

Today we dressed Charles in one of Scott's old outfits that he wore when he was a child, and he and Elisabeth looked so cute in their church attire that we thought we'd try and take some pictures before we took off. This was a little difficult. Charles didn't want to look at the camera:
Elisabeth tried to help by putting her arm around him, but he obviously didn't want her to touch him:
I decided to jump in and see if I could hold Char still for a minute, you can see how well that turned out:
Oh well, better luck next time :)

Second big change: We recently found out that we'll be moving to Salt Lake City, Utah this summer! We've known for a long time that we were going to have to move somewhere if we wanted to buy a home, but we just didn't know where and we were looking all over the U.S. We've been very prayerful about it all and it's amazing how the door just completely opened for us in Utah. We know that this is where we're supposed to be right now. We're very excited, though it is going to be hard to leave my family and friends behind here. It has been so nice living close to family, especially when I've got little ones and a husband finishing his masters degree :). We're not sure the exact day we'll be moving but it'll either be in July or August, it's a good thing we just switched to a month-to-month lease when our contract ended last week!
