Aunt Brigid comes to play!

We were so lucky that Aunt Brigid came to laugh, play and dance with us!  It was a great time.  It started off with the airport and Target.  I must say that these are two fun places for little boys.  Especially when one of them has birthday money to spend.  Owen picked out a Lightning McQueen car.   Surprise!  Surprise!!  We also made a homemade carrot cake.  I made the cake.  Brigid made the frosting.

Saturday, we played at the Puyallup Farmers' Market.  We window shopped, ate street food and had a relaxing afternoon.  That night we went to BJ'S for dinner.

We went to the Seattle Mariners Game on Sunday.  We sat in the Bleachers.  We got video taped to be put on the scoreboard!!!  This has never happened to me.  What fun!  I am not really sure if we ever made it up on the scoreboard because we were sitting directly under it.  The boys weren't really interested in the camera.  We tried to get them to wave, but they were unimpressed.  They were more interested in the peanuts, red vines, hot dogs and pop.  Who doesn't love Ballpark food??

We love when people come and visit us!  We are hoping Brad can join Brigid next time.  That way Brandon will have someone to talk computer shop with.

Daddy's Birthday!!

This post is a little late since Brandon's birthday is on August 9th!  I figured I would post it anyway!

The boys always love a good birthday party!  We celebrated with Dairy Queen ice cream cake.  A family favorite!!  It was an awesome day to celebrate someone we are so grateful for!!

(I think Owen is responsible for the birthday hat on Meghan!!)

Blueberry Picking

The Knight family headed out to Bybee Farms to collect some blueberries.  This farm is at the base of Mt. Si.  They have rows and rows of U-Pick blueberries.  So we hunted and gathered and left with almost four pounds of blueberries.  The boys always love an adventure.  They really loved this one because it came with blueberries!!

Owen was very dedicated on finding as many berries as possible.  Seamus ate more than he put in the bucket!  Meghan was a perfect angel.  She slept  in the Baby Bjorn.  She is so easy going.  She doesn't mind getting dragged to all these new places!  God really did bless us with an easy baby.  I think because he knew our plate was pretty full already!!

It was a great time.  I see lots of blueberry muffins and pancakes in our future!
