I got so talky talky about how I was "feeling" about one year of owning the practice, that I didn't show the party!
Our family and the staff hid in a room and told Tyson he had a patient. He walked into a room full of balloons and noise makers.
Apparently when Tyson is surprised, he keeps his eyes shut. :)

Berkleigh wanted another tea party.
She wanted to invite a couple of princesses, but it was last minute and before Ballet, so we just invited her favorite princess this time because I was taking them to ballet anyway.
Oh these two crack me up.
Pouring some tea.
Merrick came down in his church clothes ready to serve.
Don't you just love the towel over his arm.
Quincy wasn't having it though. She really wanted to be apart of it, and Merrick could not be on that chair.

It is gorgeous outside.
So we headed on a walk to our favorite secret bridge.
Which isn't so secret if we keep writing about it.
Oregon in the spring is beautiful. There are tulips, daffodils and irises everywhere, and when we are blessed with good weather, it makes it so fun to be outside and take it all in.

That is the name of a famous dragon... but that is what I have been calling Berkleigh cause she LOST her FIRST TOOTH!
I have to give special thanks to my friend Rachel. She pulled Berkleigh's tooth.
I knew it was pretty loose, like complaining all the time that she couldn't do anything because it was so wiggly, so we headed to Rachel's house and she pulled it right out.
She is a seasoned tooth puller, having pulled out at least 4 teeth.
The bloody gummy shot.
Gotta have it.
We went to the school last night for their Open House and we the school office manager gave Berkleigh this little tooth box. It was so cute how excited she was.
So excited to put her tooth under her pillow.
The tooth fairy kept putting off buying this really cool "tooth fairy kit", so she will get that bought and in the mean time, she wrote this REALLY tiny letter and fashioned some washi taped into a tooth to seal it.
Done and done, now a million more teeth to go.

Merrick started soccer. I don't think I realized what a commitment it is. (Way to do my research, right?)
The kid has soccer practice twice a week and games on Saturday. I am going to soccer three times a week? And that first week was a doozy... soccer practice is at 5:30, so if I don't have dinner ready and eaten before we go, then when I get home I definitely don't want to make food, and the kids are famished by then. :) So we ate out two too many times that week.
Don't worry. I got it figured out.
It just took me a week.
This little man has had a hard time getting used to his soccer cleats. As sad as it is, it is kinda funny to watch him limp around the field. We have tried everything. Good thing dad is a podiatrist. He made him some orthotics to fix the problem, and hopefully today will be better.
Oh I love him. How cute is he in his soccer gear.
We had our first game on Saturday. We won 15 to 3. Our little friend Jackson made probably 10 of those goals. He is super intense and is amazing.
Merrick is a great defender. He had some great moments as well, and I was super impressed with his skills for only doing it for 2 weeks.
If you don't believe me about the limping, here he is mid limp.
I love me some Merrick.
Good game, good game, good game, good game.
Oh, and when Merrick is practicing or playing in a game, this is what we are doing...
Chasing Quincy around:
Look at that devilish smile.
And enjoying sun with our friends.
