Sweet Kieron turned “lucky seven” this Cinco de Mayo. He’s matured a lot this year and is such a smart, fun, sensitive little kid. He loves to play outdoors, read, cook, do science projects, and tell jokes. He’s doing Cub Scouts and karate this year, but is considering trading one in for parkour or swimming. Kieron is strong and brave, practical, and a bit sneaky. Sometimes his brothers get on his nerves, but so far his little sister has his heart! He wants to be a forest ranger or a chef when he grows up.
We celebrated his birthday a week early with a pool party
Jackson, Isaac, Elijah, Kieron, Louis, Liam, Avery, & Silas
Birthday morning breakfast order: waffles!
Looking dapper in his new glasses
Silas got Kieron a Nexo Knight
Avery got him a cool nerf gun
And Mom and Dad got him his own Kindle Paperwhite
Apparently Jonathan isn’t the only one who likes Baskin-Robbins ice cream cake. Now Kieron and Avery ask for it too!
Heading out to the local Nerf War that evening
In min-August we went to the annual pancake breakfast at the fire station followed by Railroad Days in downtown Snoqualmie. The weather was beautiful and warm, we saw lots of friends, and enjoyed a yummy breakfast we didn’t have to cook!

The boys touring the firetruck
We marched in the parade with our State Senator, Mark Mullet. He owns Zeek’s Pizza and Ben & Jerry’s in Issaquah (which we are known to frequent) and is running for re-election. We helped out with his campaign four years ago, and although things have been a little too hectic at our house to volunteer as much this year, we were happy to join him at the parade. We told him this was the last time we would supply a baby though! 😉
A family affair

Little boys love trains! #BringbacktheMullet
The tooth fairy has been busy lately. And we should know, she’s been at our house a lot lately. On this particular night pictured below, Avery pulled out not one, but two of his molars!
Same pj’s another night
For a few nights Avery worked on extracting Kieron’s very stubborn two front teeth. We were impressed at both how cooperative and trusting Kieron was, and how serious Avery was.
Eventually Kieron’s stragglers, which had been hanging on for dear life, making him resemble an alpaca with snaggle teeth, FINALLY kicked the bucket. He lost his first front tooth one night, and the other the next. We were all relieved when they finally went.
Ultimately Daddy wiggled them loose with a little iPhone distraction
Happy boy can bite again without wincing!
