EVERGREEN INVITATIONAL, 2012
What a long, but such exciting and lovely day we spent at rhythmic gymnastics Individual and Group competition our daughter participated! We enjoyed such beautiful and outstanding performances, incredibly talented and beautiful participants and atmosphere. Such memories!
Our daughter got 1st place overall in her age and level! We are really happy that Kristin enjoins gymnastic and feel so proud for our girl! Each level has different rules and number or routines to show. Kristin competed in Level 4 and had 3 routines: floor, ball and rope. She got 1st place in both ball and rope routines, 3rd place in floor routine and 1st place overall!!
Kristin’s floor routine:
Here is also Ball and Rope routines, but unfortunately about the same horrible quality (as well as the pictures). We definitely need to work on this part and probably use something different that just iPhone’s camera ;o)
Happy Sunday everyone!!

Believe you or not, but this morning my DH and I had yoga for 32th day in a row (had to miss 2 days due the class schedule). Not that only we are still alive, but feel pretty good and proud that realized one of our challenges from enough long list ;o)
I do not think our goal is to be such flexible like this guy LOL or even to be able to do things like our daughter shows and amazes us every time. But we are planning to make hot yoga our every morning exercise at least.
And below are some pictures of Kristin an her rhythmic gymnastic class I just can’t resist to share ;o)
All girls are just amazing, isn’t! I’m so happy that Kristin is enjoining the gymnastic and we feel so proud for our girl!!

We still don’t have even Spring here… but can you believe we are so ready for outdoor activities?! ;o) So we spend most our weekends for traveling and visiting some fun places. This weekend we with our friends are really enjoined Wallaby Ranch located in Fall City, WA.
We watched video and learned new information:
– kangaroo use tail to walk – like 5th leg!
– they are pretty smart – can open door handle and water facet
– they do use hands a lot – to walk, to eat, to fight and so on, even can climb the fence in case of
– mother can close her pocket so tight that no water will go inside when she swims
– they like to rest on the back.
Look at this little Cutie. The farm owner had it under his jacket for 10 minutes and everyone was surprised when he took it out! We all were charmed and excited to hold a baby kangaroo ;o)
The albino kangaroo looks definitely different ;o)
And below are Wallabies (a dwarf kangaroo) – they are so cute! It was really hard to assure Kristin that we do not looking for a new “family member” this time, even if Wallaby is just about 2 ft. tall.
Thanks a lot to Sergey for such Amazing pictures!! So glad you guys joined us. See you soon!
Today’s forecast offers 48-58 degrees and rain at least 3 days more … well, another trip is scheduled ;o)

Port Townsend… Actually we were very surprised with its architecture. Small Europe in North West ;o)

Well, it was another amazing weekend, but now I’m hurry back to work. I’ll share with you something new just in a few, stay tuned ;o)
Happy and productive Monday to everyone!!

What a LOVELY Saturday!!
Not to mention it was pretty warm and sunny here today (well, at least a half of the day ;o), but last minute we with our friends decided to visit the annual Maifest in Leavenworth and so glad that did it! ;o)
… enjoyed German kitchen in our favorite restaurant
… and then – wow, even if we visited this Bavarian Village couple times before, I had no idea about this beautiful park with such great trail – so bad rain started in 10 minutes later we came to park, uhh.
Today is Sunday and here is rainy again … well, not a bad weather to clean house, have a little shopping and enjoy hot yoga class late today ;o)
I hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Our Pixie is turning 2 years today! She’s absolutely amazing, cute, lovely and sweet girl with such charming personality. Kristin got an idea to cook Pixie Birthday cake, based on doggie’s favorite food and decorated with her favorite treats – let us see what we get ;o)
The only thing, she is overweighted already … for whole o.1 lbs – hehe, I hear your laugh ROFL!! We also got a good one when we were told in veterinary clinic that her normal weight should be 4 lbs. Funny, but her mom and dad were 3 lbs and 3.5 lbs respectively… an acceleration ;o)
P.S.: BTW, the second picture was taken by Kristin and we are both so happy with this cool shot!! Pixie doesn’t like to be model and it is really a big luck to catch her on photo.
Happy Thursday everyone!!

Oh my, what a Lovely place!! If you live close enough, I would heartily recommend you this resort. Especially now, when outside temperature is about 45–55 degrees, but you have 3 warm pools outside and 2 inside about the same temperature as your morning shower. It’s a second time we visited this place and definitely will be back soon. We arrived about 4:20 pm and were in a pool 10 minutes later (or a bit early ;o). Then we had some walking and yummy dinner in German restaurant.
… and then swimming, swimming and swimming again before 11:00 pm with Kristin and after 11:00pm – “adult” swimming (no kids jumping around :0). Well, we spend about 6-7 hours in pools in total. Everyone had a fun, even our camera ;o)
On the next day after couple hours of morning swimming and then check out from resort, we visited 2 tulip festivals – in Canada and US. Here is Canada’s one:
And in WA (I guess I have about 200+ more pictures from this festival and if you don’t mind I will post couple of them on Thursday or so ;o)
Not to mention we met our friends:
Guys, it was so Amazing to see you and right after your trip we definitely should set up a party ;o)
Well, that’s all. We really had a BLAST and enjoined every minute! The only thing made us boring was 3 hours in line to pass a border… But as we were told – it’s OK for Friday’s afternoon… well, good to know and it’s really sounded enough logical ;o)
I hope you had a Blessed Easter!
A Happy and productive week to everyone,
