....camping at Mt. Rainier

Most of our time was spent under this tarp....trying to stay dry.

We went with Jay's brother, Jeff and his family.

We spent a lot of time by the fire trying to stay warm.

All in all...this weekend will go down as one of the "most memorable"

The last days of Summer (August)

We had so much fun at the aquatic center this year. Every last warm day was spent soaking in the sun.
I found this recipe for s'mores...very fun for kids!
Large marshmellows, hershey bars and crushed graham crackers.
Toast the marshmellow over a fire or grill. :)
Dip it in melted chocolate and then the graham cracker crumbs. yummy! I used lollipop sticks for the marshmellows after they were toasted.

I hosted a shower for Jay's sister Julie in Seattle. Here are all the sisters who attended.

Later that evening we had a fun bachlorette party on the beach...complete with a bonfire,

...and of course, yummy s'mores.

Catching UP!

I was in several weddings this year...the first was my sister Andrea's. I had so much fun spending a week with her before the wedding, doing last minute preparations and just having fun. Here are few pics from the wedding day!
The morning before the wedding it was sprinkling off and on, even while we were taking pictures. When the ceremony started the clouds opened up and the sun was shining! What a wonderful day it was.

Jocelynne was a flower girl. Here are few to show off my little cutie pie...

She did such a good job!
...and this is my favorite pic of them all.
