Sports All Day Long!

Eli and Thomas have become such sports fanatics! Eli is really good at basketball and Thomas is really good at soccer. And Caleb, he's good at jumping, haha! Love my Caleb, he just goes along for the ride : )

Thomas really has a knack for soccer, the boy has some crazy good moves!
Eli loves soccer too but basketball is more his wavelength. 
Caleb loves jumping : )
When you match the furniture, hahaha!
We got passes to the Adidas employee store and I thought I'd go in just for kicks to see what they had (yes, pun intended). As any mother of triplets will tell you it's almost impossible to go anywhere and find 3 of the same thing! Or 3 equal but different items for that matter. I almost exclusively buy my kids clothes online because shopping at stores is soooooo frustrating! Two of everything and NEVER three. Anyways, the boys needed new shoes bc their go to easy on shoes have holes in the soles (yes, all from playing basketball on concrete, I know bc Calebs' shoes are the best looking of the three, ha!). If you can believe it they had 3 pairs of size 11 shoes of just not any shoes but the Damian Lillard model!!! Damian Lillard is the star player for the Portland Trailblazers, someone the boys admire quite a bit. Eli has worn them everyday since we got them. I hope these last better than their last shoes, yikes!
Eli and Thomas spend a lot of time just staring at their basketball book (that contains pictures and stats of all the NBA leagues). They can name most of the teams, including the LA Clankers, hahaha! I let them go a long time before I corrected them, it was too cute and funny hearing about the "Clankers!"
This is how you spell Star Wars when you have a Boston accent, haha!

6 Years 7 Months!

CET are 6 years and 7 months old and ready for some fun in the sun!
We are so happy to get a break from record breaking rainy days! I looked forward to today and beyond as if it was a vacation, haha! The forecast for next week is mostly sunny with warmer temps. Shorts weather for Oregon natives like my boys, ha! I'll stick to my light jacket and sweaters for now : )

Hair-sonalities

I gave the boys different hair cuts just to "try it out." Unknowingly their hair cuts fit their personalities...let me explain : )

All three with fresh cuts at the tulip festival
Caleb's round head actually allows for long hair...his long beautiful locks says he's laid back and carefree and certainly pretty silly too!
Eli's double cowlicks makes his hair stick straight up so he can only wear short short hair.... his sharp military style cut says he's a rule follower and self disciplined.
Thomas has a medium cut with some definition to it...his hair says he's very fashionable and he likes to stand out as different. 
The tulips weren't quite ready but still beautiful!
With their mama Elda whom they all adore!
Eli lovin' his mama Elda!
Eli smelling the tulips : )
Love this one of Thomas and how he matches the tulip colors!

Family pic but not our best, oh well, ha!

Six And A Half!

The boys are super excited that they can now say they are six and a half! The years go by in no time at all, ugh...they'll be 7 next time I blink. Seven seems so foreign, so big, eek! I also can't believe I've been blogging for over 7 years now! I've seen so many blogs come and go and very few that have gone as long as mine. Hoping to keep going as long as I can though : )

CET are 6.5!
They start soccer next week although it's not as organized as basketball was with practice and games. It's more just practice once a week to get some energy out :

Dillon's Beach

Just over a month ago we did a quick 3 day trip to California to see family. It was a bit of a rushed trip since we had to drive so far away but it was definitely worth being able to see everyone under the same roof!...I dropped the ball and didn't take many pictures but thankfully cousin K took plenty and shared them with me : )

TEC
Group Pic of the whole Pittsenbarger clan
All the couples : )
Always fun to hang out with Aunt Candy

Super Caleb!

BasketBall!

I may have bitten off more than I can chew this month cause I'm so behind on blogging! I signed the boys up for basketball and they have a practice and game once a week (so twice a week we are out doing basketball). It's a bit hectic but the boys LOVE it! I always wanted them to do sports but they were never interested in it (I don't think I'll be the type of parent that pushes extracurriculars unless the kid really wants to do it, ha!). All that changed a few months ago when they picked up a fervent love of basketball (well Eli and Thomas that is, Caleb likes it a lot). Thomas and Eli are really good at it too, both boys have made shots during games (and in the right hoop too, ha!). Anyways I have a lot of catching up to do, we went to Cali a few weeks ago and I just got around to taking the pictures off my phone. The boys have just 3 more weeks of basketball and things should get back to normal then : ) 
Trying out some summer wear while its 40F outside, brrr!
Thomas drew of our cat Nehala (Na-hayla), we call her NeyNey for short. Love how Thomas spelled it "nana" and how he spelled meow in Spanish phonetics!
That face you make when you look good and you know it!
Basketball champs!
They play a mean game even though most kids tower over them : )
Caleb drew a great rendition of Grumpy Cat from memory, I'm impressed!
Here's a little video of the boys first game, Thomas scores on the other teams hoop! So glad everyone cheered anyways : )
