Pizza Night at the Lake

Last Wednesday we all went up to Lake Tapps to enjoy some pizza with some great friends. Some of my best memories of growing up happened at this house. We were up here at least once a week. We have kind of kept in touch of the years but it was great to be back up there. They have an amazing brick pizza oven and everyone was able to create their own pizza. It was so much fun and great to catch up with old friends. I really hope that we stay in touch.
An amazing view

Happy 4th of July

Even though Eric had to work this year Blake and I had a pretty fun 4th of July. We went over to Auntie Betty's (Henry's sister) for a BBQ and then headed down to Orting to watch all of the fireworks. You can see some pretty awesome fireworks right from my moms deck. Blake really liked the big colorful ones in the sky but didn't like ones being lit off too close to him.

A fun day playing in the pool!

Since the weather has been so hot the last couple days we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to pull out the monkey pool we got Blake for his birthday. It was great to use in the winter and fill up with balls but its even better in the summer. Blake had so much but he especially loved playing with the hose. I really hope the weather keeps being so nice its so much fun to play outside!

He loves drinking the water from the hose Diving right on in
