Fall Colors

After picking the boys up from school, we decided to do a quick adventure and visit the Cedar River Trail to take in the fall colors. 

Salmon Spawning

The boys threw maple seed (helicopters) over the edge of the bridge and watched them twirl down to the water.  They weren't even racing them if you can believe it.

Dinner With Friends

Knife Safety

Max's Bear Den is learning knife safety.  He loves carving.

Dancing in the Leaves

This is a post-dance class dance.  So beautiful!

Running off Energy at Dragon Park

We visited Dragon Park on Mercer Island to run off energy in between conference sessions on Saturday.  This is a great park and the kids had a lot of fun.

After conference we enjoyed the results of our friend's tradition of making bacon cinnamon rolls during conference.  Yum!

Ryan's Soccer

In between conference sessions this year, we took Ryan to soccer practice.  First we watched some men playing cricket.  Then we watched Ryan practice his mad skills.

Walk-a-Thon 2016

I volunteered at the Walk-a-Thon this year.  First we counted all of the contributions.  I got to see these cute kids at lunchtime.  Then I went and picked up Jase and Evelyn so they could be part of the fun.

This is as close as Jase would get to the mascot.

Ryan was so proud to do 12 laps which is more than he did last year.  Max broke his PR too.

What a fun day!
