The Jolley Family Reunion

The last leg of our trip was to spend time with my Mom's family, the Jolley's. We stayed at this camp at Twin Rocks on the Oregon Coast, and it was also quite beautiful. We stayed in cabins, so it was kind of 'roughing' it a little but we totally had a great time.

 The Silly Shot just never gets old

 Super fun getting to see cousins and aunts and uncles that I don't get to see much. It was so great seeing my cousin Emily who we just don't see enough. I love this girl!


 They had these wagons that were for getting your luggage from the car to your cabin but of course we all used them to race down this grassy hill, and pull each other around the paths.

I love my little niece Leah

Lily bug loves her Auntie Moey

Had a great time with my sister. Sure wish we lived closer but was so lucky to have a long trip that I got to spend so much time with her.

The Johnson Family Reunion

 The second part of our Pacific Coast trip was to Rockaway Beach in Oregon. My parents rented this amazing beach house, and we were lucky to have mostly good weather. Chilly, but still beautiful. That's pretty typical for the Oregon Coast. We had a great time eating, playing games, birthday party for Lily and Dylan, making plaster art in the sand, and just relaxing.

I LOVE this person

And this one too

Him too

Seattle is Here, Wish You Were Beautiful

We were so lucky to get to go to Seattle this summer and stay with my sister Monique and her awesome family. We had a blast!!!! They have an amazing house which overlooks the Puget Sound, which I seriously got lost in several times the first couple of days. My niece and nephew are just beyond beyond beyond precious, and of course I love my sister and her husband. They are wonderful hosts! They took us do so some really great stuff. We got to go to the Seattle Center and see the Space Needle, go on bouncy houses, play in the giant fountain, go on zip lines, ate awesome food. We got to go to Carkeek Park, which is this great park in their neighborhood right on the water. They took us on a ferry to Kingston Island, where we walked around,  and had some lunch. We went to the Seattle Aquarium which is a lot of fun, and it had really cute otters. It was such a fun trip, and although we did some fun things, the best part was being with our family.
Leah is so hilarious and is constant entertainment

On the ferry. It was windy but a beautiful day.

 Allie took this picture. Nice job!

 We saw Mater boarding the Ferry. Random.

Dylan has a thing about wearing other people's shoes.
 AWESOME Aquarium. This place puts the one we go to in Arizona to shame. I guess that makes sense. They live on the ocean, we live in the desert.
