We headed over the mountains for a Villager family weekend.
The kids like to find volcanoes. At this rest stop, you could see both Adams and Rainier. A little higher up the hill and you can see the top of St. Helens too.
Another picture in front of the volcanoes.
Eating lunch at the rest area.
Out to dinner in Arlington. Elizabeth played with her little cousin Amelia.
Grandma Helen has a fun elliptical. They liked to fight over who got to "exercise" so we gave them both a spot.
Swimming at the hotel.
We went on a ferry ride around the San Juan Islands. Here's Grandma Pam!
Family photo on the ferry. Yes, Laura. I managed to get 2 sweatshirts on! Jeremy was perfectly comfortable with 72 degrees on the water. I was not.
Looking out over the water.
They found another volcano! There is Mt. Baker in the background.
The 3 of us in front of Mt. Baker.
They loved to dock at the islands and stood at the very front to watch the ferry dock. They also loved watching the cars drive on and off!
Uncle John brought a picnic lunch. Thanks Uncle John!
Grandma Helen, Uncle John, and Aunt Teri enjoying the views.
The little kids found a grasshopper on the ferry window and had fun playing with it.
It was a beautiful day!!
Grandma Pam and Nathan in front of the volcano.
Jeremy and Elizabeth down below on the car deck.
Here are cousin Becky and her husband Mark and little girl Mirabelle.
Nathan found a lot of seaweed and wanted to bring it all home. That did not happen.
He had to have a picture on top of the rock.
Hanging out at Grandma's house. Elizabeth is eating with cousin Joseph who is 10. He was so nice to her! His little sister Amelia is the same age as Elizabeth so he's used to little girls.
John, Rod, Teri, Susie and Porter eating some pizza!
The big kids were nice about playing Red Light/Green Light with the little kids.
The big boys Brian and Porter liked to swing the little kids. Here is Nathan swinging!
Uncle Rod got a picture of the 4 of us playing on the beach. He was up on the ferry.
