We went to Bellingham at the end of June. We caught up with good friends, visited a few of our favorite spots, and ate a lot of yummy food. The first night we stayed at a hotel. The following night we had a camping mishap. We originally planned to camp in tents at Larrabee State Park (my first such excursion since becoming a mom), but when we got there, we quickly realized this was not our kind of camping. Mostly RV’s, generators, packed close together, and our site wasn’t on even ground! Fortunately, our friends, Jim & Renee, had tried to persuade us to stay at their house earlier in the day, so we quickly turned around and headed back to their place. We made it back just in time for dusk. Jonathan and the boys camped in their back yard, while I opted for the guest bedroom. We had so much fun we decided to stay another night!
Avery in the pool. This sweetie pie chose to stay in the room with me the second night instead of camping in the tent (which he loves). His reason – because it was my birthday and he didn’t want me to be alone! He melts my heart!
At Lake Padden. This photo was taken before Silas tripped and landed on his face, resulting in a bloody nose. We had no tissues, so my medics, Avery and Kieron raced (quite a distance) to the bathroom together to fetch some toilet paper.
