Mariners Game

We were lucky enough to be gifted some Mariner's tickets and were able to go down for a game.  We drove down to Everett and hopped on the Sounder and then to Seattle.  The boys were thrilled about ALL of it and we had a good time.

It meant for a long day though... were in the car at 9:30 am and got home around 7:00 pm.

Kevin and Hunter's overnighter to Heart of the Hills via Deer Park

So every year, Hunter and his Dad take a trip just by themselves.  This year was a late and short one night camping trip on the motorcycle.  They were going to go to Deer Park, but it was just not meant to be so they ended up at Heart of the Hills in Olympic National Park.

Deer Park... very foggy and a bit too chilly.


Heart of the Hills

There was some sort of sailboat festival going on in Port Townshend too.

I must say that I've really been enjoying hand washing my dishes recently.  This wasn't intentional but I'm not all that anxious to remedy it either.

First day of 5th Grade

So... Hunter is such a big boy now and he's been walking to school on his own or with friends since last year.  The anticipation of the first day is always exciting but it was really old hat for us and the big kid.  I felt like I should be more excited but in all honesty all I could think about is... NEXT YEAR.

I'm already getting butterflies for next year which is going to be a very big year for all of us!  Hunter will be going off to middle school, but not really since the middle school burned and they are rebuilding.  So in all actuality he is going to be bused to another elementary school located across town as a 6th grader... I know, sounds weird.  So not only will he have to deal with being a 6th grader in a non middle school environment, he still has to deal with being in a different school, different teachers, and a whole new group of kids too.

Then the twins will be heading into kindergarten and I will be all alone.  I know, sounds so sad...  I will love the extra time, but it will definitely be different in the beginning.

So, I do have  a couple of pictures to share with you.  Love his bouffant hair?  I asked if he wanted a hair cut and he did say no :)

And of course it was a traditional drizzly day for the first day of school!

More Vacation Photos

Theodore Roosevelt Monument along Contintnetal Divide on the way to the East Side of Glacier National Park.

The Lodge

I know we have more photos but I tell you they are kind of jumbled... between 2 cameras and 2 cell phones... lots of pictures :)  And I need to do a better job of documenting these lakes and highways.  They are all beautiful but start looking the same after a while.  My goal is to print out a map and highlight the journey again.
