This might be the funniest thing I've ever seen. Here's my nephew performing "It's Too Late to Apologize" ... he just turned 4! :)
Today we saw one of the most AMAZING things ever. We saw dozens of salmon swimming upstream to lay their eggs. The sad part was they actually die along the way. Some of these salmon must have been 2 feet +. It was incredible to watch!
Over Labor Day my parents drove over from Montana and we visited the San Juan Islands for the weekend. We stayed on Orcas Island and yes, we did see killer whales from the shore! We did a long bike ride. It was very muddy and steep and we ended up carrying our bikes most of the way!
S, D & E went on an Alaska cruise this summer. It was wonderful because we were able to see them before they left and also for a few days after their cruise since it left out of Seattle. We went to the Point Defiance Zoo, the park, and Snoqualmie Falls. I loved being able to spend time with E and see her developing personality. It was so cute to hear her sing her ABC's all weekend. E ... Tio and Tia LOVE you! :)
This summer Marc and I rode our bikes 204 miles over two days from Seattle to Portland. There were 9,000 people on this "STP" ride and we rode with about 15 other people for Team World Vision. Thank you to everyone who supported us in raising money for Bikes for Africa ... we had the ride of our lives!
Over the 4th of July Marc and I went to the Olympic National Park. We had a great time exploring its two rain forests, hiking in the rain to waterfalls, seeing the fog covered peaks and Washington coast.
In June, Kelli and Jeremy became the real-life Mr. and Mrs. Smith! They were married in my parent's backyard in Montana. It was a beautiful wedding that ended with HUGE storm! The storm about destroyed the tent and tables and all of the guests were frantically clearing tables and holding down the tent (metal poles!) during the thunder and lightning storm. It was a wedding we'll never forget!
