How lucky are the Lpods? We got almost the entire Kim side of the family up to Seattle for a long weekend! We were only missing a couple of boys. What a great weekend though!
It started out with the girls cooking dinner while the boys went to pick up Melissa at the airport on Thursday night. Abby quickly realized she could open our back door and decided she wanted to go “Abby Side” which is code for “Abby go outside?” She wandered through this new strange house and found a pair of shoes that seemed fit for the job to get her “side.” This caused a serious case of the giggles for Mimi and Kim while Shar caught all the pictures. This one was taken just before she pitched forward.
After the giggle fit, we decided to start making some dinner. Sharla and Abby were so helpful.
We had an excellent dinner and some good conversation. Then it was time to test the capability of our house, can it hold 6 adults and a two-year old? I think we managed. The next morning was full of the girls playing on Melissa’s “bed” or blow up mattress on the living room floor.
We got up early enough to make a day trip out to Bainbridge Island! First we had to wander through downtown. Doesn’t this clan look so cool? I love them.
Of course, we had to stop for Starbucks. Right next to Starbucks was this guy. Not sure the little one is a fan. What do you think?
Someone even got out her binoculars to take in that beautiful mountain.
I just loved this picture that Scott took. She’s so little and so big all at the same time.
After a delicious lunch at Cafe Nola, we wandered for some ice cream and window shopping. Abby was very intrigued by this lady and even asked to be picked up by her. Someone doesn’t know a stranger.
We pushed our limits as a family. We figured the little one could take it. To say the least, it was a challenge to get her into the carrying backpack. Poor Scott.
The little escape artist has a set of lungs on her. Maybe he is trained to deal with a woman screaming unhappily in his ear?
Happy Joe, chillin on the ferry boat in his very pacific northwest fleece with his coffee drink. I think he and Mimi should move here.
Yeah. Can you believe it? This is where we live. I feel so lucky.
