The twins are finally home and my kids finally got to meet them tonight! I made them twin quilts – Eliza's on the left is Cakewalk and Aubrey's on the right is Happy Go Lucky (both Camille Roskelley patterns, both with Little Ruby fabric). And @cecilieblee and @wmscottlee are my heroes! Twins plus two other kids, all under age 4, is a circus.

"Many hands make light work," especially when filling 300,000 bags with dry lentil casserole for the Contra Costa County Food Bank! There is so much need right in our own community – I'm grateful for the humanitarian efforts of Feeding Children Everywhere and the LDS church, and for the helping hands of everyone who showed up last night and this morning. #thosehairnetstho

The hills were green and alive with the sounds of nature as we hiked along Shell Ridge at dusk. I sure like this guy, even more after 12 years of marriage than I thought was possible! It's ok to use cliches when they're true.

I accidentally got Lite ice cream, so that makes this a diet snack. Plus bananas for fruit, and (candied) almonds for protein. And it's all smothered in homemade dark chocolate sauce – they say dark chocolate has antioxidants so it's good for you. #healthy #nailedit

Swim season officially started today! All of my kids were so excited, especially Logan "the swim team boy". He's going to give me a run for my money this summer – he loves the water, isn't afraid of it, but can't swim. YET. Heaven help me! Logan had the biggest grin on his face all 30 minutes of practice. And hallelujah the pool was warm!

Rushton and Jake had a blast with the @athletics and some CLL families at Little League Day at the Coliseum! I love how much heart @whyisjake puts into coaching and the local little league. And I love how it gives him lots of good quality time with Rush (and hopefully eventually our other kids!). He's a keeper!

I love capturing moments like this – they help me get through the countless other frustrating moments that all add up to parenthood. Hailey and Logan were so sweet to each other most of the day. I had an outing planned for the afternoon but they were having so much fun in the back yard that I just let them be! I hope THEY remember today, too. ️🏼🏼️
