After being in Washington for two days...Finally..Jeff and his family arrived from Fort Rucker, AL!!! We all were at Rocky's house waiting for them. There was plenty of excitement and hugs!! I hadn't seen them in a little over a year!! Those who live in Washington hadn't seen them in almost two years!!! It was definitely the best part of the trip!! The kiddos had all gotten so darn big!!! It was so fun to spend a week with them!!! So sad to see them leave...I think they need to adopt me!!

Lake Trask....

Our first adventure in Washington was to go camping!!! I love camping and I haven't done it in a long time. TJ's wife Lindsay's mom owns camping property on a little lake and she let us go up there and stay a night. We were going to stay two, but it started raining!! We got up there set things up and went was a little cloudy, but that didn't stop us. Gage and Henry gave it a try, but only lasted a few minutes. Kyah on the other hand stayed with us big kids the whole time!! She was a rock star. I haven't been swimming in it was fun to goof around in the water. Of course we cooked our dinner over the fire....some serious Brats, we also roasted marshmallows and Angela and I mastered the art of making Jiffy pop over the fire. Good time!!! Brad and Rocky came up for the day. Gage started his first fire (thanks to Aunt Lindsay for helping him) and became a pyro...may want to watch out for that. So much fun..can't wait to do it again!

Kyah kickin it with the big kids...T, Rock, and me!!

This picture of Kyah and TJ is so adorable...I love Rocky in the background...he was snorkeling for treasures...apparently you can find some fun stuff!!

Me and Kyah....she seriously was cracking me up when we were swimming...thought it was funny to splash me in the mug!! Don't worry I splashed her back!!
Henry kickin it on the swinging can see the sun!!
I was taking a picture of TJ wearing my girlie hat...not sure what he is doing....
It started to rain...Linds, Ang, and T taking cover..
I don't know why, but this picture cracks me up!!
They loved roasting marshmallows, but she may need to get them closer to the fire...
Gage had quite the roasting stick...4 at a time!!
This is the only picture I had of Brad...he wouldn't look at the camera!!
Khloe was the worlds best baby camping..forgot she was even there sometimes!!
There they are was so peaceful in the was so awesome!!
Kyah and I waiting for Ang, T, and gage to come back and get her.
T, Ang and Gage were the first ones out on the lake....
I love that Henry is just kickin it in the back of the boat...
We did not catch anything, but Kyah got a big bite and found out she had her first lose tooth..that is quite a fishing trip!!

Seattle Road Trip

On Sunday July 10th @ 3:30 in the am we left for Washington!!! We were so excited to see our family especially Jeff and Jana and their had been over a year since we had seen them. About 2 hours into our trek, Miss Kyah started puking...I reached back to push the blanked up around her mouth so that it didn't get all over the car. It was all over her, blankets, seat belt and my hand. Thankfully it wasn't too stinky(I am sure you wanted to know that). After a quick clean up we were back on the road!! I blame her mom..she did not give her Dramamine and she let her watch a movie. Next gas station we got the drugs and she slept the most of the trip. Problem solved...Rest of the drive went quite smoothly. We arrived in Sumner in the late afternoon to TJ and Lindsay's house...We got quite the welcome and it was so great to be out of the car....

We saw this little man again...Hank the Tank...he is so funny!!

We met Khloe Michelle for the first time...of course she has my same a part of her is named after me...Love her!! She is the sweetest!!
The kids played Hide and Go Seek....Uncle TJ..found the spot for Henry and Kyah!!

Gage like to scare us by poking his head into the side of the umbrella!
We all helped TJ build Henry's new playground!!
Kyah, Me and Henry hid out in the roof of his playground!
Gage wishes he didn't get T wet....Henry got in on the action!
Henry loved climbing all over me...I loved it too!

Best of all I was able to order dinner from Sushi Town...Best Sushi ever!!! If you are ever in Bonney Lake Check it out!

More posts to come from my amazing trip to Washington!!!
