Happy Belated President's Day

I took the kids to the beach on Monday to enjoy the sun and sea (something we don't do often enough). We were equipped with a few rubbermaid containers, plastic spoons, coats, crocs and the camera and we were set! The kids had a ball digging in the sand, throwing rocks (we only had a couple close calls) and playing in, on and with the drift wood. I'm hoping this post will spark some jealously so all of you will plan a visit in the near future!

We concluded our President's Day at Dustin and Ciera's for a hot dog and marshmallow roast. Dustin had a rip-roaring fire going and had pulled his tractor up so we could put the food in the bucket, who needs a picnic table when you have a John Deer!

If you click on the picture to enlarge it you can tell just how hot the fire was.


One other highlight of our day was when Jenna (0ne of my laurels) brought me "Happy President's Day Treats," being that I am her Young Women President. I felt so loved. Thanks Jenna!

Great times! I know, this weather! Don't even get me started! Summer and I were at Greenlake for 3 hours yesterday and I feel like we need to soak up every second of sunshine or something. Its bringing all of us out of our winter depression or something! Love the beach pics.

Hey, we're heading out to the reunion in WA around the last week in July-- so we'll see you either the week before that or after it. Pencil me in! I want a trip to the "beach" and a weenie roast and some serious home cookin' like only Crystal can do. Then I want a tour of the dental office from the dentist himself. Then I want a big hug from Connie. That's it.
