Summer Tour

I was realizing this summer that the first time I was in Bellingham was almost 20 years ago....I came and went for a few years before settling there in 1996...and I love it there. That said, I would really appreciate someone figuring out a teleport system so that I could see my family more often- I know, it's a lot to ask, but there it is. Until that happens, we spend pretty well exactly half of our summer on tour visiting with our families in their various locations. Over time, we've learned that the best strategy for our little family's survival is not to come back to Bellingham until we're totally done- limited transitions, and no wasted summertime in Bellingham packing and unpacking. So far, it's working.
Here are some highlights:
North Carolina Cousins







Cooling off at the creek.






Fireworks on the culdesac - Ian stayed inside after the first big boom.


Road Trip to Kentucky
Did I mention that it was 110 degrees out that day?


These goody bags had a bunch of random treats, and we played treasure hunt- taking turns describing each item, and then eating that one.



A lunch stop at Cracker Barrel - a good ol' Southern restaurant chain. Www.crackerbarrel.com
Kentucky


The boys and Aunt Libby- one of their many fabulous aunties!



Chris and his dad's fishing catch. Www.lbl.org



More cousins- Ben & Molly



A buffalo traffic jam


Chris and his sisters, Libby & Beck.

San Diego


A special visit from Aunt Sandi, who came out from New York to see everyone ( and tried to smuggle Ian home in her suitcase.)




Pop pop and Nana took all 5 cousins out on a pirate ship adventure- brave souls!


Date night!



Bowling with Grandpa Tom



It's hard to tell, but this is a "rock" on one of the playgrounds, that's probably 8 feet tall. Cooper climbed all the way to the top, with some coaching from me, and more importantly, all the way down!




Two pinheads, as Chris would say!




Location:North Carolina, Kentucky, San Diego
