Random Fact

Eph made it to 2 and a half before he had general anesthesia.  Selah made it to 2 and one month.  Forrest made it four.  Me?  I made it to almost 36. I'm sure I will share more about why I needed to have surgery sometime soon - but let's pray and hope that Kinsley takes after me and not the rest of her family.

Meet Hoppy

Meet "Hoppy."  The wild bunny that lives under our shed.  So far he has only nibbled on my radishes, and I am hoping it stays that way.

This morning at swim lessons, this baby found a puddle in the bathroom and sat and played in it.  Right after I had out clean clothes on her.

Father's Day Baseball Game

One of our friends offered me free tickets to the mariners game for Father's Day.  I couldn't say no.  Mariners games are more my thing than Forrest's (I think my dream job would be to be in charge of the music they play at ball games) but we all had fun.  
The roof was on because it was raining, but the atmosphere was great.  Kinsley fell asleep at the very end of the game.  
Selah and her friend Beckett tried really hard to get on the jumbo tron, but were not successful (we now have a new goal for Selah). The mariners won and it was a good day for all.

Adventure at Ballard Locks

My goal for this summer is to take the kids on more adventures. To explore parts of the Seattle area that we have never been to before. Our first adventure: The Hiram Chittenden Locks. We walked over the big lock just before the started to open it to let a bunch of boats out to sea. 
It was pretty impressive how many boats fit in the big lock. 
I texted Forrest asking why he hasn't bought me this boat yet, but he didn't respond. 
After crossing the small lock, which they were loading with sailboats. We went to the fish ladder. 
There weren't any salmon today, but they are expecting a big run soon. 
On our way back over the locks there was an Argosy cruise boat headed into lake Union in the small lock and this large fishing boat in the large lock.  I could have watched for a bit longer, but the kids wanted to run. 
The locks are surrounded by a botanical garden, so I let them loose.  I also took a picture of Kinsley to prove she was there.
