We have an annual tradition were we meet up with some friends to watch the Blue Angels practice over Lake Washington. It's part of Seattle's annual SeaFair festival. They close down the I-90 bridge and people can walk out onto it to watch. It's so cool.
Found the perfect snow cone holder
Our neighborhood has outdoor concerts and movies every summer. We saw Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.
The girls and a friend all bundled up
I really want to start hiking more, but unfortunately Olivia doesn't care for it and I don't want to pay for 5 or 6 (or at least 4 depending on length of hike and drive time) hours of babysitting just to go hiking. But on this particular day we managed to coerce/bribe her to do Snow Lake with us.
The girls and Kona with their friend Jasmin
For Paul's 50th birthday a year and a half ago, I got him a Seattle Mariner's Gift card and we finally used it to go to a game. We picked a Sunday game so the girls could run around the bases after. They played horribly and lost, but it was fun anyway.

My best friend that I've known since Kindergarten turned 50. She and her son spent the weekend with us. We went to dinner and a free concert at the casino with another friend on Friday night, then on Saturday I treated her to a massage at the Salish Lodge. On Sunday we went to a campground with another friend and all the kids to go swimming, and then back to that friend's house for dinner and drinks and games and just to hang out.
Lastly, the girls started 5th grade on the 29th! See previous post.
