May in Seattle

May has been a fun month to celebrate the 10th birthday of our family and enjoy time together in our corner of the world.

Family Bike Ride at Magnuson Park on Lake Washington.


Character Day at school

Someone has a serious drooling problem, but no teeth yet.

Late-bloomers in the front yard

Rune started baseball this month and hit a double in yesterday's game. Go Black Bears.

Dagny and I got to do a couple mid-week hikes with our friend Lisette. This is Rattlesnake Ridge, where there are no rattlesnakes.

Last week Dagny had her first taste of sand at Alki. We were celebrating the first day it has been above 70 degrees since November.
Laughing with Gabers at a Sounders match

Got in a quick hike with the Kerrs. Can you spot Broc at the base of North Fork Sauk Falls?

A night with Jimmy Eat World (D enjoyed herself by sleeping through the whole show)

We love you, older, thinner, and just-as-sweaty Jim.
And as of this week- Trouble.


April in Seattle

A few highlights for second half of the month:

We visited the Tulip Festival.
My mom came up to see the flowers (and the children).

While she was here we went on a boat ride.

The weather was beautiful, and...

We saw a humpback whale breach a dozen times.

It was a total Double Rainbow experience.

Cathi also came up to Whidbey this week, so we got to enjoy some much needed Grammie time in some much needed sunshine.

On Saturday, we were off to the races.

Broc's favorite

And for family night, we went to the Space Needle (D & K's first time).

And finally, our little Tulip!
