I'm not much of a blogger. In fact I've never blogged a single word, so I guess you could say I'm not a blogger at all. However, this is definitely blog breaking barrier worthy and if I didn't post it, it probably would never have been posted.

See that hot girl wearing #186 ( alright,  now stop looking ) that would be my Wife! That thing she is putting around her neck is a medal for 1st place in her first organized 5K run!!!  Not only is it 1st place but it's first in her age group of 19-29 year olds, which without giving away her age, is even more impressive.

She will be mad when she finds out I posted this, but Tiff this is yet more evidence of what a completely AWESOME Wife, Mom, and apparently runner you are! We love you!!!

Family, Birthday, and Easter Fun!!! And A LOT of Pictures!

So my husband left me stranded without a car today and I'm going crazy trying to think of things to do so I thought "Maybe I should update my blog" I know crazy huh....  Well, I guess it's been awhile so here's an update on what we've been up to for the past few months.

March was a busy month! First we met my in laws in San Antonio for a few days of fun while Austin went to a podiatry conference.  We went to the children's museum, hung out at the awesome resort pool and made a last minute stop at Sea World before making the looooooooong trip home.  ( I hate driving!) 

As soon as we got back from Texas it was BIRTHDAY TIME!  Can you guess what the theme was for Mylee's party?  Thats right "Hello Kitty". It was so much fun coming up with fun decor and party ideas.  I even made a little Hello Kitty doll with a dress that matched the one I made for Mylee.  
We had Hello Kitty pizza, gift bags, crafts, and hanging Hello Kitty puff balls. 

And of coarse a Hello Kitty Cake (I didn't make the cake but I  added the face)

Before we knew it Easter had arrived and we celebrated with friends at this fantastic nature park nearby.  We had an Easter egg hunt and caught frogs and the adults duked it out in  a pavlova eating contest.  Not to mention it was an absolutely GORGEOUS day!!!

With 9:00 church we had an early Easter Morning but I don't think the kids mind. Poor Kai had an ear infection and an eye infection but that didn't stop him from enjoying his first Easter Basket.

I made Mylee and Kai a matching dress and tie so I really wanted to get some pictures before church so we went in our backyard and took a few. We also have an awesome grass field behind our house  that made a beautiful backdrop.

Who's got the cutest kids ever?  ME!!!!!!

What a STUD!

Oh How They Grow!

I cannot believe it has already been 8 weeks since little Kai joined our family.
As you can see he is absolutely adorable and we have had so much fun having a baby around the house again. You forget how much work they can be but you also forget the joy that comes from caring for a newborn.
Mylee is an excellent big sister and she loves her baby brother sooooo much. I don't know how I could've done it without such a big helper like Mylee around.
We've enjoyed having family come visit and we even got to have a little vacation to Branson, Missouri. It was super fun and I would recommend it to anyone for a fun family friendly vacation spot.
I hope you enjoy the pictures. It's been quite the summer and we've enjoyed every minute.

The best big sister EVER!!!

We love "Swimming" Grandma

And "Grand-mommy"

For those of you that don't know Mylee LOVES the water and is quite the fish. She also loves to jump off the diving board which looks funny because she is so tiny. This was at our ward party the other night.

Birthdays, Vacation, and Princesses on Ice

I guess it's time for my quarterly report on the Muranaka Family. We've actually had a pretty exciting month and I'm sorry for not posting pictures sooner.

We started out the month with a special birthday celebration. Mylee turned 4 years old this year and decided to have a Royal Breakfast Ball with all her best buddies.
They had a wonderful time playing games, balloon sword fighting, painting faces and eating lots of cake and ice cream.
Here's a clip of Mylee blowing out the candles and it's hilarious because she's sulking the whole time. Apparently she wanted the pink punch balloon and she was very upset, but at least she blew out the candles.

The next day we were off to Florida for a little R and R and a Podiatry conference.
At least Mylee and I got a chance to relax and enjoy the beach.

Mylee wasn't exactly crazy about the ocean and the sand, but boy did she swim swim swim all day in the pool. She can actually swim very well now and begs daily to go down to the YMCA to practice swimming.

Here's a little belly shot for those of you who want to see how huge I am.
One of Mylee's birthday surprises was a chance to go see "Princesses on Ice".
We went with a couple of friends and it was absolutely Magical. We figured it was almost as cool as going to Disney World, but a lot cheaper.

That's my little Princess! It was definitelya mother daughter moment I'll never forget!
