Sunday scientists

Lu set up an experiment involving bubbles and straws this afternoon. My favorite part is her lab book where she's recording her work. Cal wanted in too, of course :)


First birthday party of the school year

It's been over two years since the last time she went roller skating at a rink, but she's having a blast--out there right now doing the "cha cha slide" :)


First day of school!

Third grade, here she comes!



The new Planes movie opened recently, so of course we went to go see it this weekend. The surprise? Lucy said it was her favorite Pixar movie ever!


Happy Birthday Lucy!

Our Lu turned 8! We celebrated with cupcakes ...
Calvin ate his from the top down.
She opened her "card," and then realized it was tickets to go see one her favorite singers (Taylor Swift) up in Nashville.
We love our Lucy!


Last lunch date with Daddy

School starts next week, so we're squeezing in one last lunch date at 5 Guys :)

He's cool and he knows it


Summer in Seattle: Day 22 = Sea Creatures!

Lu and mom explored the tide pools and found some amazing creatures.

Summer in Seattle: Day 22 = Marina Beach Park

Sunny summer skies + low tide = beach day! Lucy loved exploring the tide pools and seeing anemones, sea snails, and all sorts of creatures. Calvin made muddy messes and climbed the driftwood. Top it off with a picnic and you have a perfect summer day in Seattle.

Summer in Seattle: Day 21 = Grandma and Grandpa!

After church (the first meeting of the newly-combined Bellevue Ward--the old B1st and part of Woodridge), we packed up and went over the bridge to Grandma and Grandpa's house. An evening walk out at the jetty by the train tracks was our first adventure!
