July Summer Fun

We started swimming lessons at Forest Park in Everett. It's a beautiful facility and both girls are enjoying our time in the water together. This past weekend was Kla-Ha-Ya days and we watched the parade with the Mundy family. We're also beginning to sand our house to paint in a few weeks--hopefully we'll have enough energy to last us through the rest of summer. It's been a wonderful warm summer--we couldn't ask for a better one.

4th of July Weekend

This weekend we celebrated our nation's Independence. Toby & I were fortunate enough to get off a bit early on Thursday and make good time picking up my Dad from the airport and getting back to Snohomish. We took the girls to the Snohomish Farmer's Market and through town on a nice evening.
We are getting better and better at our barbequed pizzas. We made two. One had a tomato sauce with thyme, oregano, rosemary, minced garlic, sliced crimini mushrooms, red onion, pepperoni, mozzarella and grated parmesan. The second had drizzled olive oil, minced garlic, thyme, oregano, ricotta cheese, mozarella, grated parmesan and torn basil leaves. They were excellent!

Most of the weekend we spent in our backyard trying to stay cool--it was hot! I enjoyed an evening with my girlfriends celebrating Sara's birthday, a wonderful 4th of July party celebrating cousin Brady Austin's 1st birthday and doing a little bit of yard work. All in all it was a great weekend.
Abigail is trying so hard to walk and has 4 new teeth coming down. She's a trooper!

Happy Birthday Sisters

This month we celebrated Lisa & Tracey's birthdays. We love you both so very much!!
