March has flown by.
We ended the month with Spring Break and a trip to Mt. Naeba for some snowboarding.
The boys are getting better and better so it has been fun to see their progress!

The boys are doing well in school. Weston joined Karate and is happy to now be going with me and Ashton. 
The weeks are busy with all of our activities but we like it that way!

The twins are growing a ton and now little toddlers. Cooper got a big boy haircut and seems so much older! Nixon has to wait until after a modeling job next week to get his cut (I'm kind of liking their different hair styles though!).

The cherry blossoms are blooming and spring is finally here! We will enjoy a few months of calm weather before the heat of summer comes!

Happy Spring!

You can tell these kids are all models----I mean, just look at their poses :)

And of course we had to do a serious face or "Vogue" face 

Lindsey, Kristen, Michelle, Jody, Terese and me!

Camden, Kyleigh, Weston, Aiden, Haylee, Addie, Riley, Nadia, Julianna, Ashton, Luke, William and Riley :)

This group of kids is amazing. 
They are all so sweet and well behaved. They have become such good friends and we love them like family.
We met through modeling and see each other at shoots and auditions. 
All of these kids are models and do a lot of work. 
I am so thankful that we are friends and have such a good relationship with each other. I can honestly say that we are always happy and excited for each other when someone gets a job. We are always supportive and have each others back.

We decided to do a photo shoot of all of the kids for a keepsake. Lindsey will be moving in a month, Jody will be here until June and the rest of us will leave at different times in the next year or 2. I am so glad that we took the time to make these memories and capture all of these cute kids together.

After we let the kids play and got the pictures out of the way, we went to lunch at Wolfgang puck.
I live right in the middle of the city, so walking to the restaurant is a little tricky with 13 kids :)
Tiny roads, lots of people, taxis, bikes motorcycles etc.
On our way down a tiny road (single file) we noticed people coming out of their shops and stopping to snap pictures of the kids. It was funny and I'm sure we looked crazy!

Our week while Dad has been in D.C.

Oh, the places we go!

Pajama day!

These are some finger painting (mess free!) tablets the twins got for their birthday:)

Me and my karate buddy heading to class 

Pizza party with Frozen

I guess my bed is the main nerf gun base!

Daddy has been gone since Sunday and will be back on Sunday.
The week has flown by and everyone is healthy and happy!
Some of the highlights of our week--

Pajama day/Dr. Suess's birthday
Weston's job at the beach (he got to actually ride a white horse on the beach wearing Dior. How awesome!)
LOT'S of nerf gun wars
Picnics in the Family room upstairs while watching Frozen
Dinner at Wolfgang Puck with our friends on Friday night! YUM!

Ashton, Virginia and the twins were troopers on Thursday. Weston and I were out the door by 7:40 AM. We caught the train and made our way to Shinagawa where a location bus was waiting. The drive to the shoot was 2 hours away. It was a beautiful trip but freezing! All of Weston's outfits were for spring/summer so he was a trooper! The crew was great and had blankets and space heaters for Weston.
The job finished at 7pm and then we made it home by 9.
It was a marathon day but very fun. Virginia was great with the twins all day and Ashton was good to do his homework, make it to soccer and then on to Karate all on his own.

Ashton's 7th birthday was so much fun! We had pizza, snacks a bouncy castle, movies and cake!
And of course good friends from school, soccer and modeling :)

The boys only stopped jumping to grab a quick slice and then it was back to the jumpy house.

I made a Minecraft cake and cupcakes and it turned out really cute!
Ashton's expression after school was awesome when he saw the cake :)

Happy Birthday to our big 7 year old! We love you:)

***On a side note, in-between school and Ashton's birthday party I ran the boys to a quick audition.
This little girl in the picture and her sister were there and we are great friends with them. When Ashton saw Riley, his face lit up (they have a little crush on each other) and Riley came over to him and hugged him and wished him a happy birthday. I think it made his day even better ;)
