The weekend and family
Next we were off to help with Jocelyn's first birthday party, mom headed to Craig and Lisa's to help transport food and the Brady Bunch clan and dad headed to Shute Park to set up BBQ's and decorate. The older kids and I quickly started arranging and decorating tables and dad grabbed Jayson and started decorating with streamers (wish I had snapped a few pics, but time wasn't on our side).
The kids continued playing at mom's house while Jessica and I did a quick Costco trip and made dinner. The Brady Bunch clan hung out until about 10:30pm and then headed home. Our trip home was much quicker than our trip there.
Sunday, we headed up to Seattle. First stop Pike Place.
After the races and a quick 'pit stop' we headed to Olympic Sculpture Park for some lunch and a little relaxation in the sun. After lunch the younger of the clan wanted to put their feet in the water and had desperately hoped to find a place to actually change into their swim suits but they quickly discovered that the water was too cold to swim in, so they attempted to skip rocks. Unfortunately none of them mastered the art of skipping rocks and they avoided several close calls of hitting each other in the face with rocks.
After the older boys finished their naps in the park and the younger kids gave up on attempting to skip rocks we headed home but made a quick stop for ICEE's as a perfect way to end our weekend.
