The boys were able to spend a little extra time with Ben’s parents this summer. Ian and David went home with them after the baptism and stayed with them until we made it down there at the end of the week. They had a blast driving Grandma’s golf cart, visiting the air and space museum, playing with cousins, splashing at the splash park, fishing for catfish, etc. They loved it!!
In June we took a family vacation to Olympic National Park. We camped in our “monster tent” in a beautiful campground right next to a slow moving, calm river. It was beautiful! We visited Hurricane Ridge, hiked around the Hoh Rainforest, explored the tide pools at the beach, played in the sand and ocean, fished along the river, explored our camp site, got extra dirty, and loved every minute of it. The park was beautiful and it was especially wonderful to get away from regular life for a few days.
I LOVE this picture of David showing his bigger brother Ian how to use the fishing pole.
