Yes, I know - I'm behind. Life is busy and this blog now takes a backseat. But the good news is, I still keep taking pictures and once I get time (like 15 minutes during lunch) I'll post a some pics from the last few months. This is a set of pics that I took this past fall when Dad, Gaye, Lindsay and Haylee came out to visit us. The first few days of the visit were spent up in Seattle. Nate, Hayes and I missed that part of the trip but Parker got to tag along. They visited the Market, the Space Needle, the Chihuly glass exhibit and did some ferry/island hoping the following day. Sadly, I cannot locate most of the pics Lindsay sent me from this portion of the trip but I do have this one of Parker and Haylee in Port Townsend with their rootbeer floats.
The second half of the trip was mostly spent out on the coast in a house dad and Gaye rented in Arch Cape. The view from that house was absolutely spectacular! We made lots of great memories during their visit. Some of the highlights for me were playing on the beach and flying kites with the kids, the bow & arrow set that dad made for Parker out of branches he found around the house, Gaye's great cooking, time in the car with Lindsay during our drive down to Newport, visiting the aquarium, the dive seafood/grocery store we fell into in Newport (after our GPS totally failed to find the place we were actually looking for), the candied salmon that Parker couldn't get enough of, and just general time with family.
