Over the river, and through the woods...

To my grandparent's house we go.  Casey's parents were kind enough to loan me a car, even with extra visitors at the house.  It was so fun seeing Grandma and Grandpa, and as an extra treat my mom and sister (with my nieces and nephews) were able to visit at the same time.  It was a full house, but Grandma and Grandpa were troopers, and we had a wonderful time.

 The grandparent's loved snuggling the babies (although I guess they're not really babies anymore).

 The ATV was very popular.  I learned to drive it, and although I look quite skeptical I did get the hang of it.

I even took my mom for a ride...I'm quite the speed demon, as you can see from her wind blown hair (okay not really).  

I just had to include this one.  I think it captures our true selves just perfectly. 

 We flew kites.  Very fun.

I played with barbies.  Also very fun.  Kaylee had left me with the responsibility to fix their hair.  I couldn't refuse.

Their was also much delicious food that I'm sure was quite a lot of work.  Thank you Grandma and Grandpa for having us!  We had a wonderful time.

Our Seattle Trip 2012

We had a great time in Seattle this summer.  Here are the pictures, I think they tell the better story.  
 We spent a lot of time at the cabin, and Casey got to sail.  He was very happy about that.
Owen loved the cabin, of course.

 Owen spent a lot of time watering the plants, and playing with his cousins.

 We took a family picture.  Nice.

 There were some hikes.

Owen spent a lot of time with his Nana.  They have a special connection, as you can see. 

 Water was a favorite the whole trip.  Surprise!

We fed the goats at Grandma Lucy and Papa Bob's. 

 We stopped to smell the flowers.

Owen and Zoey's great-grandparents.

Then we said goodbye.  It was a sad goodbye, but not a permanent one.  It couldn't be, or I'm not sure Owen and his Nana could go on living.  Thank you for the fun time!

(There was also a brief trip to my grandparents house, but I'll make that another post.)
