We love where we live!

Have I mentioned how much we love our neighborhood? It's the best. It's called Queen Anne Hill and it's right downtown Seattle. Such a great community! There is a great 3 mile loop that we run. Caden can now (at 4 years old) ride the whole thing. This picture is from Kerry Park. SO BEAUTIFUL!! Sadly we will only be up here through Dec 2010 then it's back down to Bonney Lake we go:(

First Day of Preschool! (year #2)

Proud little guy outside his preschool on the 1st day.

Caden 3 1/2, Addison 9 months

Since we moved back to Queen Anne, we had to find Caden a new school. Little Friends is a great preschool within walking distance. We weren't sure how the afternoon program would work out (he goes M thru TH from 1:30-4) since he was still napping when the school year began, but he adjusted wonderfully and loves his new school! I miss him like crazy when he is gone. He is such my little buddy.. Seriously, how cute is he!! Wow, I love this kid.

Caden enjoying some relaxing time in the pool!

Fun times with Nana and Papa

My little water baby!

He loved painting the leaves

Papa Great and Addison

What a special trip to Sun River... We had a great time enjoying the outdoors, playing cards, making yummy food and just relaxing! The kids did so good for the 8 hour drive. We almost ran out of gas in the middle of the night, no cell phone service, not a soul in site. It FREAKED me out! But thankfully we made it to a gas station on fumes. Adam said he wasn't worried, but I beg to differ! Fun memories made on this great trip!

Baby Addison

Caden loved looking for jellyfish, sea shells and other treasures:)

We had such a fun trip up to Boundary Bay for Labor Day weekend with our wonderful friends the Eyfords and the Jacobs! You go up to Canada, then back down to Washington. The Eyfords have a wonderful beach cabin and we had a great weekend just being with friends! The kids played, we ate great food (and maybe some wine), searched for treasure on the beach. Such a fun weekend with memories made and lots of laughs! Thanks friends!!

Aunt Dot was visiting so we went to Harland and Roberta's house for a visit! Here are a few shots.. It's so great that she is able to come and visit a couple of times a year. Caden sure enjoys her!
