Next Stop: Seattle

Marie and I flew home to Seattle on the same day where I got to spend the next 2 weeks!
I decided to head to Seattle for so long 'cause Jake's been working on a New Testament's shoot for the church and I hardly ever get to see him (just 3 more weeks!!)
So to cancel out my loneliness he sent me to stay with Marie :)
So sweet!
We missed him like crazy though!
I've decided future vaca's w/out the hubs can only be a week. Max.
But we did have a lot of fun things to fill our time with while we were apart.
Here are some of the highlights:

The kids loving on cousin Annabelle

Liam reading her books

Ashley coming for the 2 weeks too :)

Being there for Isabella's first day of school. SCHOOL!!
I still can't believe she's old enough...

Going to Bill and Rise's lake house

My water baby

The swimsuit model cousins ;)

The lake water was so nice and warm.

Annabelle loved it!

Isabella was so sweet to little Annabelle -- she got her to laugh so many times!

Annabelle obviously loves her right back!

Scarlet and Bruce came for one night and brought the most absolutely adorable Levi!

The babes having a giggle party

"Hi, Levi!"

Handsome boys

Will the handy-man. That's right. He fixes ovens.

The sweetest Bill & Rise.
Thank you so much for letting us join you at your beautiful lake house :)

Gorgeous Marie.
Thanks for a great visit to Seattle.
We miss you already!

  6. sister time...adorable babies...a getaway to a lake house...and all captured in gorgeous photos :) glad to hear you had such a great time!! i loved when i read on Notes She Wrote that you guys were together it was going to be such a long stay :) but i agree, long trips away from the hubs/daddy are hard!
