Tax Relief

What does a 4 year old and a 1 year old do while their parents work on the dreaded taxes? They play Star Wars Wii and walk around playing with any non-toy item until falling asleep.
After (finally) doing our taxes, we needed a fun weekend in Kentucky. We decided to leave Saturday morning so it was super easy to stop in at Dunkin' Donuts. Yes, for the kids of course! Axel had a whole new perspective on donuts and Lucas, well he was just enthralled by his Star Wars movie.
Love that camera face!
There was a little climbing competition going on for the Red River Gorge Reunion at a great crag called Torrent. It has limited access so it's always a treat to get to climb there. We met up with some great friends and had a wonderful (long) day.

Guess who took first place for the mens Habanero category? Thee Mr. Mike Anderson...all because of the wonderful support of his loving wife and family. :) Way to go Daddy!! A big thanks to Jess & Bentley for belaying him and to Kevin & Charmagne for belaying Mommy! :) photos of Daddy?! He was too busy racing around. :)

I did catch a few photos to document the day. A little girl influence wore off on Lucas. That's what happens when you spend the day with triplet girls who are now 7 years old! I haven't seen him pose for a photo in months! See the gun? Yep, he's still full of Star Wars these days. He was Count Dooku on this day.Mrs. Charmagne tearing it up!
Emily drawing in the dirt. These girls have grown up outside and are so creative with keeping busy. It's been great for Lucas and yes, they can actually tire him out. Very impressive!
Mrs. Kay and Hannah enjoying an amazing spring day.Axel kept busy too and loves to explore the outdoors.Cloe looking cute as always! She's a big helper with Axel & Hannah. I can't wait until she's a few years older...we'll have a super babysitter for the boys. :)Swing time. After watching Hannah take flight, Axel was curious.
Big swings for a big girl!
Axel wasn't too sure about the harness but he tolerated the whole process.
I guess chewing on the strap helped a little.
He had a huge smile as soon as we let go. Swinging is one of his favorite things to do at the park and this was a whole new adventure. He loved it although his body language shows no emotion at all.
After a great day of climbing, we headed to Miguel's for the big party. Pizza, BBQ, raffle, slide Show, prizes and a HUGE bonfire. It was such a fun evening and we came home with lots of great climbing shoes, the worlds biggest climbing hold, little magnetic climbing holds for the fridge, new chalk bag, etc. Lucas has a way with people and his cuteness usually equates to free gear. :)

Jason, Lucas & Karissa. Lucas and Karissa have a bond that is so fun to watch...he's truly in love but unfortunately for him, she is getting married this May. Good thing Jason is so good at sharing.
Daddy & Jessica...her hubby is in the background with his new camera. Next time, I'll have to get a better photo of Bentley. Nice bunny ears Mike!
Mommy & Axel were there too so let's get a cute group photo. Yeah right. (Check out Lucas & Karissa...this sums up their relationship! Too cute!)Try again...
And again?! By this point, Lucas knows what we are up too and is not going to cooperate. Axel also picked up on the plan and decided to follow in his brothers foot steps. Oh my boys?!?!
We give up. (Check out Axel's love of pizza!)
Sunday was a rainy, rainy day perfect for hanging out at the cabin.
It was a wonderful weekend!
