Yesterday we took Brighton and Ellie to Seaside. We all had such a great time. There was carousel riding, sand castle building, splashing in the ocean, beach song singing & dancing, salt water taffy eating, and lots of giggling. Fun, fun day!

Grandma & Grandpa Visit!

My parents came to visit earlier this month. It was so great to have them here and to spend some time with them. I'm scheming to find a way to talk them into moving here. Pretty sure it's not going to happen, but you can't blame a girl for trying.

While they were here we went to The Lion King, which was great! We we had a shopping day and we spent a day at the Rhododendron gardens, which are gorgeous, even though not much was in bloom while we were there. We had some good games of Hearts and had a great time just hanging out. Brighton keeps talking about how she is so excited for Grandma & Grandpa to come back in the fall. (So are we)!

4th of July!

We had a great 4th of July weekend. On Saturday we tried to go to the St. Paul Rodeo, but it was sold out when we got there. Luckily they had lots of rides and things for kiddos to do set up outside the rodeo so we still had lots of fun. Bri loved the rides & had a blast. On the 4th we had a bbq with Lex, Bren, Megh, & family, then watched a good firework show at Tigard High. Brighton was pumped to watch the fireworks. She was oohhing, aahhing and cheering the whole time. Good fun. :)
