Vacation... finally

One of the many highlights was our day spent on a rented boat

The smiles are are a good sign up that the boys were having the a good time

And Max described the innertube rides as "Better than awesome. They're epic!"

Although, I think the expression on his face is the best descriptor of all

Hanging out with mom wasn't all that bad either

Nor was fishing with your bare hands

The boys and our boat.

It was a fun, but exhausting day, especially for Sam O

Bedtime stories with mom

Heading to Fish Lake to fish the lake the next day

Everybody caught one!

Snacks and chill out time

My crazy critters

A fitting end to a great trip. Nature put on a show with a rainbow and...

Some amazing star gazing in the backyard
After a busy stretch at work this summer, it was time for our first family vacation in about a year.

We rented a cabin two hours east of Seattle on the Wenatchee River with some family friends. We had four boys, three adults, two dogs and one really good time.

Child of the corn

Our urban farmer is kind of proud of his first harvest.

Our happy, little squirt

In case you were wondering were wondering what pure joy looked like, here you go....

The Force is strong

Nothing like a Mariners win and watching Return of the Jedi with my young Jedi on the field afterward.

The weekend that was

Saturday we took a long walk down to a local beach and the boys and their buckets provided most of the entertainment.

I also mixed in some dad and little dude time.

After a movie Saturday night, Sunday started off with our traditional pancake breakfast.

Then came one of the big highlights: Max's first brand new bike.

Not to be outdone.

We took a long bike ride to the park for some fun at the playground with friends.

Then it was time to put a period on a long, fun weekend.
I haven't had many free weekends this summer, so when we do get one we make the most of it.
