We had a great weekend visiting family. We drove down on Friday. We finished listening to the first Harry Potter book which Max and Ryan love. We hit a little traffic but it didn't even faze us because we just enjoyed the family time. We even car danced. Evelyn got really into it. We couldn't post our video until we changed the song, but this was close enough.
Then Jase held Evelyn's hand and said, "Her the princess, I'm the prince". So cute!
As soon as we got there, the kids started playing.
Geniel, Lauren and I took off to meet Becky for a girl's dinner. We chatted until the restaurant was closing.
The dad's put the kids to bed.
The next morning Aunt Geniel, Uncle Phil, Lauren and I took the littlest people to the farmer's market.
The older kids had a bike adventure with the dads.
The kids did lots of playing together.
I thought it was great that Geniel was teaching the kids one of her and Grandma Kate's childhood games, Annie I Over (spelling?) The kids fought over this one so it had to end.
But we celebrated Ryan's birthday on the actual day with ice cream cones!
And we played at the park.
The next day after church we hiked at Silver Falls. It's so pretty and I love being able to go behind a waterfall.
"We mountain climbing"
The kids got to touch a cougar pelt.
Monday morning, Geniel taught me how to cut Evelyn's hair.
The older boys went with the dads and Grandpa Phil to play disc golf.
We had lunch and dilly bars and then we were on our way.
We stopped in Vancouver to see Becky and Ben's new home. Ben was nice enough to be a fun host to the kids.
Such a fun weekend!
