Our Weekend

By the looks of some of these pictures, you might be tempted to think that we spent the weekend in California soaking up the sun. But you'd be wrong. We were right here in Washington and enjoying the 80 degree weather.  It may be the only 80 degree weekend we get.  

Our son is fearless when it comes to water.  He'll walk over pointy rocks to get to the water and dip his toes in like it is a warm bathtub.  

And since he's still a little guy, wherever Nate goes, Dad also has to go.  

On Sunday, we drove to Bellingham and experienced the Chuckanut Drive for the very first time.  If you are ever in the Bellingham area, you simply must take this drive.  It's gorgeous and the views are nothing short of breathtaking.   

At the end of the drive is a park with a spray park.  Nate had never been to anything like this before.  Remember when I said he isn't afraid of water? Yep. No fear here. He loved it.

Even though our days are sometimes chaotic, we have a blast.  There was a point yesterday where Ryan looked at me while driving and pointed out that not only did we have two little boys who were crying, but we were also listening to the Hokey Pokey.  Sounds fun, right? 

But nothing makes the following quote more true than when you have kids.

The days are long but the years are short.

I better enjoy them.

Sweet Shot Day
