We had a great time with our friends in the Seattle area this past week. It was a fun birthday for me on Wednesday as we flew out first thing that morning and continued our fun into Saturday.
As always, Anissa was a great hostess as was Melynie when we stopped by her house on Thursday. The kids got along for the most part. They found some trouble now and again, but they don't seem to remember the getting-in-trouble parts. Liam can't stop talking about how fun the trip was. Hooray for getting out of town!
Oh, before I post a bunch of cute photos, I had to share a story of the above shot. On Wednesday we went to the Country Village in Bothel and the kids fed the ducks (among many other fun things). Liam kept on standing on a big rock along the bank of the water. I told him time and time again to get off the rock as he was sure to fall in throwing the bread. Well, he found himself on a rock again and catapulted himself into the dirty duck pond water. I watched in awe as he went under water. Luckily it was shallow enough he didn't need much help getting out of the nasty pond. Also, we had just come from the airport so we had extra clothes with us so he could change. All the kids learned a valuable lesson that day - parents know what they are talking about. What a concept!
Now for photo overload...
Here are a few photos from our visit with Melynie (Thing's Mommy) and her darling "things."
