Boating season

We had such a great summer on our boat!  Adam and I figured out wakeboarding this year and it has been so. much. fun!  At the beginning of last summer, I could barely get up and now I am able to carve off and back on the wake.  Adam, being the natural athlete that he is, caught on even more quickly and is even getting some air now when he jumps! :)  The boys are still loving the innertube and getting more and more brave with how fast their daddy drives.  They also like watching mommy stand on the front of the boat and dance to whatever music is playing!

Me, my sister, and my niece!

Ahhh... relaxing in the sun.



Here I go!

I'm a little sad to seeing boating season come to an end... but looking forward to many more sunny days next summer!

Doing the Puyallup!

We had a great time at the Puyallup Fair this year!  It was military appreciation day so the entrance was free, the rides were $2, and it happened to be beautiful day!

Our family always goes for the scones first!

Casey was a little intimidated when we tried to sit him up on the carousel horse.  We found out that he is a bit scared of rides in general... unless Mommy or Daddy is sitting by him.  :)

It wasn't until we got on the canoes that I thought... wow, Jacob is really getting too big for these little rides now!
He still loved it though!
This ride is always a favorite... what are we going to do when Casey is big enough to ride the car too?!
I caught a picture of Daddy and Gavin coming down the big slide, but unfortunately... he missed the shot of Mommy coming down with Casey!


Of course the train was Casey's favorite!  He was soooo excited!!!

Jacob and Gavin loved the life-sized animals... Casey, not so much!

Next, we stopped to look at and pet the animals!
Jacob's favorite part was the magic show!  I don't think he has ever seen magic before... he kept looking at me with the hugest eyes!  How did he do THAT mommy?!
The magician kept finding coins in the funniest places!  :)
Gavin's favorite part... the cotton candy!

Back to Preschool!

Gavin is super excited for his second year at Cascade Christian!
You take pictures... I'll tell you the letters. :)
Gavin got to make an elephant... he looooooves crafts!
(Jacob made the same elephant when he was in this class two years ago! I can't believe Casey was only two weeks old then!)

There was also blue sand to play in...

... which Casey was a big fan of also!

Magnets and chalk...

I think the oobleck was the most popular though!

Circle and story time!

I could tell Gavin loved being back at school and seeing so many familiar faces! Although we are missing Jacob while he is in first grade, it sure has been special to have some Gavin and mommy time after preschool. :)
