Camping & Summer Milestones

We headed to Sequim, WA (about 2 hours away) last weekend to meet up with Trevor's mom on their 2 week camping trip. We stayed two nights, and it was so nice to get away! Okay, I had only been back from SLC for 3 days when we left...I feel like I haven't even been home lately....but we are making the most out of the summer, and it has been a blast! Trevor really wanted to get the trailer out once a month during the summer, but we haven't been since Memorial Day....we have some catching up to do in the next 2 months. So, thanks to Grandma Judy and Grandpa Chuck for the invite! The campground in Sequim was rather 'corporate' (can they call it camping when there isn't even a fire pit?)...but they had great amenities we played baseball...
...and horseshoes...

...and on the playground...
And we went up to Port Angeles. It was over 100 degrees in Seattle so we enjoyed the nice and refreshing 70 degree weather (and a little cold with the marine air). We went to see these amazing sand sculptures, which was part of an art festival...they were so cool!

Here is Addy....."wo! that water is cold mom!". Yeah, this is no east coast Atlantic ocean! But gorgeous, none the less!

As for the summer at home, Carson has mastered the RipStick thanks to a little training from Aunt Erin. He is so fast now!!

And, Addy is riding her bike without training wheels! She has had this bike with training wheels since her 3rd birthday. Trevor moved the wheels up a few months ago without her realizing it. She was hardly even using the training wheels, but kept resisting every time Trev suggested taking them off for good. But, he finally just did it without asking. She was so mad for about 5 minutes and then took off down the street like it was nothing. She was so excited and so proud! Our little 4 year old on a bike with no training wheels!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
