News and Reviews

We've had crazy hot weather here in Seattle this last week. The kids have been swimming in Lake Washington twice, which is an activity that we typically only do in the hot summer months. 

We've also had a chance to get our walking legs under us again. Unless you're Emma. She dawdled for about 100 feet and then decided she'd much rather ride. You've got those long legs, girlie, use 'em!

The group admires a slug. It was a minor miracle that this thing escaped alive. I can see two sets of shoes that were itching to stomp.
