A glimpse.

I’ve come to the conclusion that a grand re-cap of our trip is probably not going to happen.  So, I’m letting go of the idea.  Instead, here’s a glimpse of our month long visit to WA.


My in-laws have a beautiful yard. Because of the rainy spring, many of the spring flowers were still in bloom.


Playing barefoot is a summer requirement that was definitely met.


Our first few days in Portland/Vancouver were gray and rainy. I loved it! The windows of my sister’s house were the perfect frame.


My dad and his family live in a small town. My sister and I took the kids and joined them for the parade. My boys even walked with Grandpa in it.


We spent the 4th at my cousin’s house. Nearly everyone from that side of the family was there.


Fourteen members of my family (8 of whom were children) camped for two nights at the Oregon Coast. This was Connor’s first trip to the ocean.


We picked (and ate) blueberries and raspberries.


We just spent time together.


Visiting the shores of the Puget Sound was one of our favorite activities. Lots and lots of treasures were found.


We spent our last evening in the park enjoying the weather and local music.

Throw in many visits with family & friends (including one of my best friends from h.s. who I hadn’t seen in 7 years), another lost tooth for Jack, Morgan learning to tie her shoes and more adventures than I can count and you’ve got our trip in a nutshell.
