When you stay at Grandma and Grandpa's.......

You eat ice cream at 1030 while watching the opening ceremonies of the Olympics!!!!

Springbrook Trout Farm

We added a new stop on our Top 10 list this year...... We tried fishing!  I am happy to report that everyone who went caught a fish.  Although I think the girls now have skewed vision of what fishing is.  We went to a trout farm where the second you put your pole in the water 3 million fish were biting.  It was a great experience and we might be back next year.

Spokane 2012

Last weekend my Mom, sissy pants, Mia, Lil' Ryan and I all headed over to Spokane for some quality time with my Grandma and Papa.  We had so much fun and to say that the kids loved it would  be an understatement.  It was so special for me to see my kids having a blast doing all the things that I used to do when I was little.  We swam........
 I enjoyed fulfilling my role at the favorite Grandchild.....
 awesome auntie sissy took a bath with the kids
 GG got Mia treats
 Mia learned to jump off the diving board
 Bud Bud got his love tank filled

Seattle Ferris Wheel and Pikes Place Market

Last Monday we made another stop on our mission to finish our "top 10 list"  We went down town to check out Pike's place and the new Ferris wheel.  Everyone loved it except me I was terrified of how high it was.  I am happy to report that everyone did survive. Oh and Auntie Sissy even came down to see us! 
 Here I am clinging to Bud for dear life.
 My Mom loved it!  The views were amazing and we went on a perfect day!
