18: father's day Dusty gave a loving tribute to his Dad on our blog. Dusty has some big shoes to fill | These two are the best of friends. Kimball loves his Daddy and their special play time. I wonder how long he will be content to hold our hand and walk the path of life with us and not race ahead!
19: We went to Snoqualmie Falls with our friends the Wiis, Bryce, Kristina, Rachel, and Jenna. We enjoyed the view from the top, then we hiked down to the bottom of the falls. We passed through thatches of wild blackberries and "dinosaur forests" of huge ferns and moss dripping from tree branches. Once we reached the river, there was a boardwalk out to a look out point. Of course, this wasn't close enough for us! Before I knew it, Dusty had Kimball out of the back pack and over the railing climbing down to the river bed. Kimball squealed as Dusty would hold him upside down and he would swirl his fingers in the icy water. He loved the cool spray on his face and kept staring inquisitively at the falls because of the loud noise. The highlight of the trip for Kimball was the ride back up to the top. Dusty would run up some of the steeper inclines and Kimball would squeal in glee! I must admit my heart would catch as I would watch them gallop away, Kimball bouncing in the pack loving every minute. Every time Dusty stopped running Kimball would spur him on flexing his knees and jumping in the back pack. I took a much more leisure pace walking with 2 year old Rachel and Kristina, who was carrying 4 week old Jenna in her front pack. We are grateful for friends that are adventurous! | Snoqualmie Falls
20: move office | Kimball loved "helping" Daddy move to the new office!
21: Kimball loves Otto the fish. He is huge. We found him on Craigslist and Kimball will spend hours watching him swim...and begs to feed him every chance he gets!! | I'm not sure Dusty and I were ready for how much work a fish tank really is!
22: Kimball loved making brownies with Jessie for our road trip! She even let him lick the spoon! | Ki ball loves taking sips from our drinks and cooling off with Starbucks lemonade! Starting the addiction young! He LOVES going to Target with their giant red balls. He loves taking a bath and soaking the bathroom...and me!
23: Jessie flew up to drive to Utah with us for the Fourth of July. We had Subway at the Sculpture Garden Park in Seattle and walked along the Sound at sunset. It is so beautiful here!
