Puerto Penasco!

We were so blessed to get to take a trip to Rocky Point with Grandma and Grandpa and Auntie Dana!  We made so many fun memories together!  We love how different of a beach experience it is compared to our trips to California.  The tide moves about a hundred yards in and out each day, which makes for a vast beach area to run around on and investigate little shells and sea creatures.  We spent the mornings and evenings walking along the huge beach adventuring around and enjoying the landscape.  It was pretty spectacular!

The boys enjoyed this pool for awhile, but then they discovered the really warm indoor pool, and it was all over.  It was all about the “Pikachu Pool” and that’s pretty much where they wanted to be 24-7 :).

Asher saw they were having “futbol” lessons on the beach, and a ping pong tournament at the resort.  He was stoked!  The ping pong was sort of a bust though.  It’s nearly impossible to play when you have an ocean breeze tossing the lightweight ball around, ha!

I have to make mention of this beautiful experience that was very much enjoyed by Jeremy, Dana and me.  This golf course was the best of the best, right alongside the ocean!  I don’t think any of us will forget the time we had together :).

Enjoying dinner on a cliff with a beautiful view!

Grandpa and Daddy went for a kayaking cruise along the beach!

The boys still love playing “Gold Fish”

Our last sunset on the beach!  Asher and Beck were really enjoying being part of the photography team :).

 

So thankful for these memories together!

Jeremy and Asher got to go with Brett and Jonas to a suite to watch the Dbacks play!  Such a fun memory!

Pure joy getting his cast off!

Bike ride to pizza and a redbox!

Cultures and blood work for Asher to make sure Orkambi isn’t causing harm to his liver.  Thankful they have each other!

Reviewing Pokemon while we wait for swim lessons :).

Easter 2017!  Such a wonderful time with our church family, Grandma Joy Joy and Grandma and Grandpa Olimb, and our Hoverson cousins for our annual Easter Egg Hunt!  Daddy also created a scavenger hunt for the boys to find their Easter baskets at home.  I gave them my phone and told them they have to take pictures of themselves with the Easter Bunny Decoder Glasses when they found each clue.  It was hilarious to look through their pictures :).

 

Jeremy and I took Asher on his first backpacking trip to Jeremy’s favorite location.  It was pretty beautiful camping alongside this creek, and seeing the mountains covered in little yellow flowers!  We had some sweet times with Asher that we’ll always cherish.  Doing a Bible study around the fire, cuddling up in our little tent watching a movie at night, taking an adventure hike down the creek, making a boat out of sticks and seeing how far it could float down the stream, watching Asher plunge into the creeks from the little cliffs, enjoying lunch while sitting in the creek…it was such a memorable time together! 

 

Trying to spear a fish :).

These two went running to each other for an “I missed you” embrace :).

We made it back in time for Asher’s football game, and Beck was the photographer for the day :).  He did a great job!

Beck’s last Soccer game!  We think he had a really good time…some weeks more so than others.  We weren’t sure how he was feeling about it, because he really did enjoy playing…it was just in small bursts, ha!  He loved having a cheering squad, and having something that was all his own…and it was really obvious that he mostly loved half-time and the snacks, ha!  He keeps asking to play again though, so who knows, ha!  Regardless, it was so fun watching him run around trying his best :).

Our CFF Walk!  Thanks to our super generous team, we raised $10,675 this year for teamASHER+BECK!!  We are just so thrilled and thankful to be able to send all that research and help to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation!  It’s beyond humbling to have people sacrificially donate to The Foundation when it directly impacts the future of our boys.  We are so thankful!!

We went to a pretty park before school one morning, so I could get a few pictures of the boys.  They’ll never be this little again…sigh…

The boys’ doctor gave them these cool hats from the Mauli Ola Foundation.  They’re so cute!

March

Most of our days are not spent doing anything super extraordinary.  Hanging out at home.  Going to the library.  Riding bikes to our pizza place.  Going to our park.  Going to church.  School.  Sports.  But, there’s something so beautiful about ordinary.  We are blessed to be the boys parents.  They are extraordinary.

Beck!  You turned 5 this month!  Wow.  Last night as a four year old!

IMG_20170315_205009small

We really tried hard to celebrate your big day…but we failed miserably this year, sweet boy.  We’re going to have to step up our game next year, because you deserve double the celebration!  You kicked off your birthday week by fracturing your elbow.  We brought you to urgent care because we thought you had just dislocated it, and that the pain and swelling would go down in a few days.  So, we decided to continue on with our plan to go camping, with you in a sling, because your heart was set on it…

IMG_5259small

IMG_5268small

Except that when we got to our camping spot, there was still snow and mud…lots of mud!

IMG_5272small

So we pulled an audible and decided to drive to a campground an hour away that Daddy had just heard about from his friend.  Except that we ended up on a gravel road in the middle of nowhere…and our tire blew out…and the little donut blew out…and we were stranded.  So we prayed.  God brought this sweet lady who took me to their little town, and found a sweet man who just so happened to have an extra tire that fit our van.  Thank you, God.  After all the drama we decided to drive back down the mountain to our home.  An entire day of traveling and no camping.  Then, the next day you were screaming in pain and we had to go back to the doctor because you had a raging ear infection.  Seriously.  If ever there was an award given out for worst birthday, you would win.  So sorry, Buddy!  We’re already thinking about next year :).  I got all nostalgic about you turning 5, and ended up looking through old pictures.  I can’t take it!  We are so lucky to have you!!!

You did get to have some fun time with friends.  And, this is a gold moment right here.  We told all of you to make silly faces.  When you only have one arm, you have to improvise.  I’d say you made things happen :).

Probably the sweetest story that came from you wearing a cast, was that our neighbor Mel was the first to sign it.  Some day we’ll tell you about Mel, and why we feel so grateful to get to be his neighbors.  He’s a gift.

Hope Kids allows so many fun family memories.  Tonight they opened up the Microsoft store and let you two play whatever blew your hair back :).

Asher.  Gosh we love you.  We love how you joyfully accept a challenge…like, try to lip sync to this song…go :).

And, in going through old pictures I stumbled across this gem!  Nigh nigh bear still brings you comfort.  Complete sweetness.  I wish I could jump through this picture and cuddle you!

Well, Soccer finally started for Beck!  Oh the talk that had been going around for months about when soccer starts…it was adorable.  The first time we put Beck’s soccer gear on, he lit up!  He’s been cheering Asher on for years now, and this was his time :).IMG_4390small

His first game!  He’s #2!  He made a goal!  He was so proud to be out on that field!  This video is not of his first goal…but it’s equally awesome.  The other little boy kicked it into the wrong goal, and Beck took it upon himself to straighten him out, ha!  It was great fun watching him running around on the field :).

The goodbyes’ are usually a little long.  Beck literally doesn’t want to let Asher go to school.

IMG_4455small

We are blessed with Hope Kids!  They allow our family to have special experiences we would not be able to afford.  We got to go to Odd Squad Live in Phoenix.  The boys love the tv show, Odd Squad, so they were over the moon when we said we were going to see them…except that I guess we were not going to see them.  We didn’t even seen something close to the tv show.  It was hands down the worst show we’ve ever seen, ha!  But, that wasn’t the fault of Hope Kids, they’re still awesome :).  The best part was Beck kept talking about how excited he was that we were in “downtown city!”IMG_4575small

Asher did such a great job on his science experiment and presentation!  I couldn’t be there for the real deal, so he gave me my own personal thesis recap :).

IMG_4630small

President’s day = no school.  Yea!  I love these times with the boys with no school schedule.  I wish I could homeschool…without the school part, ha!  I love enjoying new experiences with the boys!

Sometimes the heaviness of how different our family is, and the fight we have that is so different than most families really hits hard.  In February, Jeremy spoke at the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Festivale, sharing his heart and pleading with people to buy science for our boys.  We also traveled to D.C. to March on the Hill with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  Really scary proposals were being made by President Trump that would have greatly impacted our current medical care and coverage for the boys, and most certainly would have changed what their futures would have looked like.  We had to go and be a voice for our boys and our community.  Thankfully, it seems as though we should be in the clear of these conversations boiling up again…please Lord.

Flagstaff!

Oh you have our hearts, Flagstaff!!!  This is one of our favorites trips we take every year!  What a blessing that for the second year in a row God gave us fresh snow to play in!  We had three storms roll through town on our stay.  It was magical and so so beautiful!  Our snowy-time cups were filled up, and we were ready to come home to no shoveling and a lot less gear to wear :).  It was perfect!!!

There was essentially no snow on the ground when we arrived.  That quickly changed.  It was a sweet treat for the boys to see the land transform.

This year was extra fun, because they boys are old enough that we can let them adventure by themselves a little bit.  It was sweet watching Asher from the window taking care of his little brother, and the two of them having a ball playing in the snow together!  You know they had fun when there was zero complaining about walking up huge hills in the deep snow!

January

Kicked off the New Year with some fireworks!

I love this memory of you Asher.  You were inspired to find a way to make some money, and you threw together a plan in a matter of 15 minutes.  You made a sign that said, “Car Wash $3 Top to Bottom 20 Min” and you enlisted your brother to promote your business.  You had a sweet customer in no time, and she generously gave you $15.  You were so cute about working hard and wanting to honor the 20 minute claim on your sign.  We were so proud of your creativity and hard working mentality!  And, might I add that you have the best little brother!!!

IMG_3937small

IMG_3944small

That moment when you’re folding clothes and watching your kids play…and your heart bursts with thanksgiving.

IMG_3954small

Asher.  January was a big month for you.  You continue to work hard in school.  We rarely have to help you stay on task and finish your homework.  This month, your teacher shared a story with me about how much she loves you and how great of an example you are to the other kids in the classroom.  She said she can, “always count on you to help.”  We could not be more proud.

IMG_3960small

We also love how fun and willing you are for a challenge…like the “try and pop this balloon with just your neck” challenge!  Of course you were determined, and did it, ha!IMG_4121small

You also started texting us this month with the Kindle you got from Christmas.  This might be my favorite stage, getting sweet little notes from you.  Case in point.  You sent this text to dad with this picture, “Friends Forever”.

IMG_0001

And, this text from you cracked me up!  I love your sense of humor!

“What world is she in right now.”

IMG_20170116_170312small

January was also a huge month for you and our family in regards to cystic fibrosis.  Daddy and I, and your whole crew of family and friends had prayed for an opportunity like this since we first found out you had cystic fibrosis.  You started the new drug developed by Vertex, thanks to the funding by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and everyone who donates to the Foundation.  We’ll need to keep close eye on you to make sure Orkambi is benefiting your body and not harming it.  We are so thankful for the progress that has been made with drugs that are targeting your cells.  We had to celebrate this day with the family, because this was a monumental moment in your life!  We are hopeful, and filled with thanksgiving!

IMG_4217small

IMG_4231small

IMG_4255small

We also chopped off your locks in January.  You’re super cute with whatever style you want to rock!

IMG_4411small

Beck.  You are a total treat.  You are getting so big, and yet there is still so much snuggly little Punkers in you that tugs at our hearts constantly.  You are still teaching us all about the things you like and dislike every day, and I’m pretty sure you’re still trying to figure these out as much as we are :).  We’re blessed to take care of you!!  Here you are.  You got ready for church all by yourself!

IMG_4116small1

I know you’re not going to sit like this forever, so I had to capture the sweetness :).

IMG_3907small

Grandma Olimb and I took you to the Pro-Am Golf Tournament, and we enjoyed a beautiful day doing something fun together :).

Paxon.  You are always a part of our family and our everyday lives.  There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think of you.  Our home and our hearts are covered with memories of your life with us here.  On our way to visit your gravesite this year, God placed a rainbow in the sky for us to admire.  He was so kind to give us a visual reminder that He is always with us.  It was perfect timing.

December

Christmastime!  It’s so fun unraveling all of the boys ornaments, and listening to their memories about each one.  We try to buy a Christmas ornament each year for the boys to symbolize their interests that year.  This year added to the tree a soccer ball for Asher, and Minecraft for Beck, which pretty much sums up the year :).

IMG_3063small

This we did not expect.  Apparently Beck is so scared of heights, he didn’t want to sit on Daddy’s shoulders to put the star on the tree, ha!IMG_3073small

Beck asked if he could hold my hand while we were riding to our grocery store.  You bet your bottom dollar I was going to take a chance of a crash to capture that moment :).IMG_2813small

Our friends hosted an Operation Christmas Child with our community group.  The boys were so jazzed to put together their boxes and notes for the little boys God was going to hand select for them.  I just have to make note of one of Beck’s answers on the questionnaire, “When I have the time I like to…”  He said, “Relax”.  Hahaha!

Then Asher found this, and made some cute comment about how he was giving me his heart…sweet boy.

I love his strength and fearlessness!IMG_20161105_144108small

Hot Dog Date with Dad!  He was jazzed…obviously :).IMG_20161118_191047small

We’ve started to make this a monthly tradition!  Wing night is the best night!

We were blessed to have Lance, Sarah, Micah, Mason & Reid stay with us, and celebrate Thanksgiving with all of them and Auntie Dana too!  It was fantastic!

The only sad part about Thanksgiving was that Asher was really sick.  He didn’t get to even taste Thanksgiving, or spend the last day with his cousins.  Still feel so bad for him. IMG_20161124_134224small

We were able to have some family pictures taken of the entire Olimb posse!

San Clemente!

We were so blessed to get to go to Cali again this year!  Too many memories to record, but our hearts were super filled up with family time, friends time, beach time, relaxing time.  It was perfect!

And now for a major, photo dump…

This will be remembered as the trip that was Beck’s first time boogie boarding by himself.  He had so much fun!!

October

Notoriously the jammy-jammed-packed month of all time for us!  Lots of fun and memories for keeps!

We wrapped up another season of soccer.  We love watching Asher play.  He has major skill, and so much fun!

Goal!  Yea, Number 10!

It was a two goal type of game!IMG_3012small

Someone has a little admirer, who doesn’t want to be very far from his hero :).

I have to make mention of this so we don’t forget.  Jeremy let the boys watch a baseball Simpson’s episode where they chant, “Darrell, Darrell…”  I’m guessing this will be a long-standing family joke for whoever is on the field :).  Here’s Asher cutting off our chant :).

IMG_4729small

No goal, but awesome pass, and evidence of how fun it is to watch him play :).

Minecraft books in tow for half time entertainment :).

Park and splash-pad playdate with Auntie Lori!  And, in case it’s not obvious, Asher loves McKayla!

Beck The Man.  Grandma Olimb, Beck, and I ate until we couldn’t move very fast at a food show.  With our lack of motivation and a desire to have a first with Beck, we asked a sweet bike lady with her carriage to give us a ride to our car.  So fun!

Hope Kids blessed us with a Family Movie Night to watch three Halloween movies with pizza and popcorn and cotton candy!  Such a fun little night together.

Asher and I were able to go and be a part of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Stair Climb.  Asher drew the thank you card that was sent home to all of the firefighters who helped volunteer and participate in the Firefighter Challenge.  He did an awesome job!  So thankful for everyone who helped raise money for the Foundation!!

When you run into a sweet nurse friend at the hospital, and she says, “let me order dinner for your family…”  What a blessing!!!

Halloween 2016.  Lots of family meetings, and the final decision was for us to go as Pokemon characters.  Daddy=Ash, the trainer.  Mommy=Evee.  Asher=Charizard.  Beck=Pikachu.  So much fun putting our costumes together!  Jeremy and I, and Grandma Olimb will never forget the 14 hours we spent putting together your paper masterpiece, Asher :).
