Summer fun with the Casillas Family

Summer fun with the Casillas Family

One of our favorite summer activities is to have a picnic.

Nathan got the opportunity to go and get some temple training so we tagged along.

the yucky gum wall by Pike's Place in Seattle. Yes that is lots and lots of nasty chewed up gum covering a wall (one of those peices happens to be mine)!

You can find the best deals on flowers at Pike's!

Obviously I am very behind on blogging, surprise!! Haha! We had lots of fun this summer, I feel like it definitely went by way to fast.  I was not ready to send the kids back to school, and shed a few more tears then normal with Devry headed of to Kindergarten. I was convinced that she would love to stay home with me for another year, but she wouldn't hear of it!  During the summer we were visited by our good friends from Texas, the Casillas family.  We always have a blast and were very sad to see them go.  Hopefully we can get together again next year! We also had a visit from my parents, we took an adventure to Pike's Place Farmers Market in Seattle.  Nathan says that it is as close to Hell as one can get.  I like it!

I told you it would be April :)

We have been busy doing nothing, with no time do everything that needs to get done. Washington is still gloomy and rainy, I may have mentioned that before. I have gotten a few snapshots of some of the nothingness we have been up to. We have had McKinlee and Nathan's birthdays as well as a short visit to Idaho for spring break. Nathan was wonderful enough to get me a new camera for Valentine's Day, and it has lots of buttons that I don't know how to use yet, so there are some blurry pictures. Oh! and did I mention that it is rainy here in Washington (someone please remind me what the sun looks like)!

Like always it has been a spell since I last blogged. You should all know that I check others blogs frequently and love to live vicariously through all of you! Since my last blurp we had Thanksgiving with my parents, which included very few pics. Then came Christmas alone with amazingly some pics. Followed by Brianne's 12th B-Day, which included a set of fabulous earrings pierced through her beautiful ears! And, today is McKinlee's birthday, but we are waiting until this weekend for the festivities so I am sure you all will get to see the pictures, lets say, April??!

We found out about this park in Olympia and decided to check it out one Saturday that was sunny. It was beautiful and there was lot and lots of seashells to collect!
