An afternoon at Lakeside

We've been in Seattle for a little over a week now and have really been enjoying our visit. Nana and Papa spent the week up at Lakeside bible camp for the the 50's plus camp, so we headed up on wed to spend the day visiting and stay for the delightful salmon bake. It was a beautiful day so the ferry ride was perfect, and we were able to enjoy all the outdoor camp activities. Logan's highlight was fishing off of the pier with Papa and playing in the giant sand box (volleyball court) with his new friends. Madeline enjoyed the playground and especially the extremely fast slides ;)
Being up at camp again and seeing how the kids loved it gave me the excitement of looking forward to being able to go as a family one day when we move back home. LBC holds such a special place in our hearts and I look forward to being able to get back involved with it someday.

 The playground was a big hit, especially the slides :) the slides were slick so you had to be waiting at the bottom or she would keep flying after reaching the bottom.

Star Wars Pj's

Little boys can be so fun to dress:) especially when it come to fun jammies. I had seen these star wars pj's a while back but ended up buying them, when I got home and told Scott about them he just gave me a confused why not? look :) I didn't really want to spend $15 on jammies, but I  knew daddy would be happy to try and pass down the excitement for star wars to his little boy, so when I saw them on sale I snacked them up. When I gave them to Logan he said very very excitedly "Ooo!, dart vada peejamies :)"  
So since daddy is not here to see them in person, this is a picture to warm his far away heart :)

Logan, Madeline, and pappa

A weekend with Aunt Becky

This past weekend Becky came down from DC to hang out, she just graduated with her masters and is now on her to to bigger and better things in Co.
We really enjoyed having here here and stayed pretty busy.
We went to the zoo, the pool, the local farmers market, did a little shopping down town, enjoyed lunch at a yummy small German bakery, went for a few runs, and did some fun projects with the kids.
Here are a few pictures of our fun times :)

 Madeline walked around with this on her neck most of the time
 He kicked all the way across the pool and back by himself, he's getting more brave!

 I was so proud of his high jump
 Look mommy!!! isn't this great?
