we {were} melting!

The temp INSIDE our house yesterday...

....until we got this little piece of heaven!Thanks Mom & Dad for giving us back our sanity with the gift of cold air and for driving it over the pass and saving us!

While mom's away the boys play

Yay to Ian for taking so many pics and updating the blog while I was gone! When I got home I was looking through all the pics he took and this one (must be the follow up to blue steel) cracked me up!

While the guys spent a long weekend in Wenatchee, I was off playing in Cabo with the girls for Shannyn's bachlorette party. We had a great time packed with lots of fun in the sun, beach/pool time, boating, cliff jumping, good food, booze cruise, dancing, and enjoying mucho cervesas/ margaritas/tequila, etc. Here's a little preview of the trip.

Viva la Mexico!

Bachin' it in the Wizsnatch

We had a much better day yesterday. We went for a ride around the loop, threw rocks in the river, and Cal passed out at bed time. Here a few small pics.

Just pics

watching barney w/ dad (he's still oddly obsessed) celebrating pa's b-day! being silly (and looking huge)
Cal's new obsession, his baseball bat. It goes everywhere with him including the car, Old Navy, Target, the mall, etc. We get some weird looks, but whatever. It keeps him happy :)

Summer in Seattle

Ian discovered this amazing park (clean, good toys, big wading pool, no scary people) by his office so we met up this afternoon, had lunch, played on the toys and splashed around in the wading pool to beat the heat.

Cal + Hailey

Hailey (Cal's lady friend) came over to play this weekend and as you can see from his face in the pics, he was less than thrilled to have to share his car...

going in for the good night kiss Thanks for the pics Gina!!

Our little lady is 4!

Of course, Suzie had a great b-day today filled w/ presents, a cheeseburger and lots of love. Her trip to the dog park is on rain check cause of a rain delay.

Mmmm, McDonalds. Click here for a look back of Suzie's last four years.

fun with the fam

We had a full house this weekend. The folks were in town for an M's game and to celebrate Dad's b-day, and Luke & Logan spent a day/night with us while Jenni & Lars did the STP in one day (yikes). There's nothing Cal loves more than having a house full with some of his favorite people.

checking out the "ba ba's" (sheep)

Cal's new love... which also caused a major meltdown in the toy aisle at Target when he had to part with it. yay for free slurpees!
