Good Weekend Back in Seattle!

Great weekend filled with puppy sitting little Colie while Brad & Kimmy were off in Boston for a long weekend, Lucy's annual vet appointment (healthy as can be and has gained a pound of muscle since her visit early this year), a matinee to see the Informant with Grammy & Grampy, and a special highlight to share breakfast at the Freise's home with Brett's good friends & their kiddos.

Of course the little ones were the stars of the show... here's one of Greg with his daughter Ella & Jeremy & Julie's daughter Eva. Greg was the fun one throwing the girls up in the air and building block towers they got to kick down. Loved watched the girls play hide and seek... neither could wait to be found but instead called out "I'm here, I'm here!!" the second the "seeker" finished counting!

Quinn, Greg & Emily's youngest, was the best cuddler and SO much fun to holdHenry "Hank", is Judson & Emily's son and ALL smilesThe two were born just days apart!

Labor Day in Long Island

Here are a couple pics from our Labor Day Weekend in Long Island visiting my dad, Brenna & Zeus! Was fun to be there in the summer versus the usual winter visits and playing tourist on the island.

Started at the beach just a few miles from my dad's house in St. James. Water was crystal clear and Zeus enjoyed a dip!

Made a trip to Bethpage Restored Village and saw old farm life, buildings, and the way the people lived in New England in the 1800s. The start of our big roadtrip around the island

Montauk Lighthouse - it was so windy!

The wine region
And evenings spent with a Board Game show down - Team Brenna & Brett made a comback and won the tournament :(

Zeus w/ his new toy from sister Lucy
The last day we spent checking out Brooklyn - was our first time after so many trips to Manhattan & Long Island had never made it to Brooklyn?! Here's us on the bridge!
