March- Lots of AWANA, snow, hikes and a RAGNAR

This month we have had lots of events with AWANA.  We participated in our first derby and we learned a lot.  The girls loved decorating their cars which is good because we didn't break any speed records with our beautiful cars!
Our 2017 family goal is to take at least 1 hike a month.  We definitely accomplished that during this month.  The first place we hiked was Dunbar Cave and the second was supposed to be Abraham Lincoln's birthplace but we didn't take into account that we would be crossing time zones so that was more of a sprint instead of a nice hike.
SNOW!! There was a great 3 hours of snow one Saturday so we got our gear on and enjoyed as much of the snow day as we could.  We jumped on our trampoline, had a snowball fight with at the park (kids vs adults) and then went to a hill and went sledding!

RV Trip to the Front Yard

For our second birthday trip we got an RV and parked it in the front yard and let Riley have multiple slumber parties!  We asked a few friends over to sing happy birthday to the girls and eat some cupcakes to celebrate them.  It was a fun weekend with lots of hanging out in the RV and playing with friends.

Saw some cherry blossom trees on my drive.
Reminded me of the festivals we would go to in Oki

Cherry Blossom Trees will always remind me of our time in Oki
