Friend Hopping: Cousins Edition

My cousin moved to Seattle with her family a year ago and we have had a lot of fun hanging out with them more often now.  She so nicely offered to let us come and stay - my parents and their dog too - for as long as we wanted.

Hope: chewing on Cookie Monster chewing on her!

Other than bringing the puking sickness with us we had a fun time.  We went to the park one morning and the boys just had a general good time playing inside and out.  The weather was gorgeous the whole time we were there so that was nice!

Noah and Jackson were like long lost twins

Their back yard is kinda funky, it's a deck and then the lower level is a pickleball court.  With a little secret garden off to one side.  Oh, and a pool that's been covered so it makes a great dance floor!  Totally random, but lots of places to explore.

My cousin is short and her cupboards go all the way to the ceiling... so this is how she gets stuff down!

This is the view from that back deck... right out over Puget Sound and the Olympics.  And yes, that is haze from the fires all the way over in Seattle.  It wasn't so bad we couldn't be outside though and it gave us gorgeous sunsets!

My girlies did really well, Nana and Papa were there to help hold them and they had lots of little kids to watch running around!

The cousins crew!

So, me and my children look like ghosts next to Jenny and her family.  They are not from my side of the family that's Scandinavian!

We'll go back soon under better conditions and hopefully this time The Sick won't prevent us from going to the zoo!
