Yikes, here we are in August already! Summer feels like a bus that I grabbed onto as it passed by and am currently flying behind, hanging on with one hand, yelling woo-hoooo and slow doooowwwwn!
The boys’ summer to-do list was very thin compared to other years, yet somehow the adventures found us anyway. Here are some of the early summer highlights. I hope this post isn’t being graded because it’s rife with inconsistent formatting and punctuation.
Here’s Leo jamming in the kitchen:
One of our many attempts at making boba (we’ve come a long way!)
We’re working on our new bathroom…
and also on our new leak.
Tried out paddle boarding:
Rocco turned 13! Hopefully I’ll have time to write a proper post about it soon.
The boys leveled up to double decker forts.
Captain Rocco drove us around Lake Union on an electric boat.
Our perfunctory summer trip to Snoqualmie Falls:
Climbing trees at the Seattle arboretum:
Did some cat sitting for this gorgeous guy:
Leo and the neighbors made a lemonade stand. No takers on the $25 haircuts, but they managed to eke $120 out of their customers, most of whom were blood relatives.
Leo made it through Twilight Camp with nothing more than mere flesh wounds.
Spent a day tooling around Bainbridge Island
Kevin and I celebrated 19 years together.
And we spent a few crazy fun days in Coeur d’Alene with my extended family.
Whew! I need a moment to catch my breath!
WHAT’S COOKIN’ 2NITE:
Salad with green goddess dressing
Ice cream sandwiches
