Catching Up

I've been on a bit of a blogging break, so I'm back to catch you all up on what we've been up to these past weeks. We left a few weeks ago to Oregon and Washington to visit Mike's parents and my parents. We first went to Oregon and we all ended up getting sick. Both boys had ear infections and fevers and I ended up with a sinus infection. Mike's parents were such troopers to put up with us all being sick! We still had a good time and managed to do a lot of fun things. We went to a little theme park called Enchanted Forest that the kids loved and Jaxon went fishing with Mike and his dad. And I was able to hit up the Nordstrom sale :) We then went to Washington to visit my parents. Our trip was cut short because my cute little Grandpa in Utah passed away and we flew out for the funeral. But we were able to enjoy some fun stuff in Seattlein the time we were there. We went boating...both the boys got on the tube, we went to another theme/water park, the beach and Mike and I were able to go downtown Seattle all day BY OURSELVES! I will stop rambling since probably no one is reading anymore and just post picures.

Jaxon was a little skeptical of this guy and didn't take his eyes off him.

But not too be trusted for too long...

I just love this picture

Mike and I were able to spend a much needed day away downtown Seattle. We had so much fun shopping, walking around and enjoying the surroundings. We found this little hole in the wall place at Pikes Market to eat lunch that was known for their Rueben sandwiches-which I love, and especially known for their meatloaf sandwich that Mike braved and loved.

Also check out these amazing flowers we brought home to my mom from Pikes. Pikes has the most Gorgeous bouquets of flowers and guess how much?? $5!!!! If I lived there I would have these on my table pretty much at all times.

I love this picture of Jaxon at the airport. He could not wait to go on the airplane..waiting in line was pure torture for him. After our two hour plane ride he turned and said to me.."How about again mom?" He couldnt get enough

I know this post is getting really long but I had to post this last picture of my grandpa. He died July 25, 2009 and was 96 years old. It is so crazy to think how one person can affect so many lives. He has 8 kids, 28 grandkids, 79 great-grandkids and 7 great, great grandkids and will be greatly missed.
