New Boat!!

Uncle John and Uncle Doug gave us a boat! Now, Nathan and Jeremy can fish out on the water much more easily. 

They brought the boat down today. They fixed it up all nicely for us. 

They pulled in and Nathan and Elizabeth went to check it out. John gave instructions to Jeremy and explained everything they were giving us. 


The kids jumped in. 


They even bought us brand new life jackets!! Wasn't that nice? 


We were so happy to see Grandma Helen arrive. We weren't expecting her and it was a really nice surprise. We showed her around the house since she hadn't been here before. 


More boat instructions. 


Putting on a life jacket. 


We drove to the boat launch. Grandmas in the back!! 


Putting the boat into the water. 


Doug giving Jeremy a few more instructions. 





Luckily, we had a nice day. Not too windy or cold or crazy rainstorms!! 


Getting the life vests ready. 


The inaugural run with Jeremy learning the ropes. 


Watching them leave!


After the inaugural run, Jeremy came back to take more people out. Elizabeth was terrified to get in the boat and did NOT want to go. Once she was convinced to get in, she loved it!! She went back for more rides. I stopped taking pictures here because I got in the boat and am still nervous about bringing my phone on safely! Wouldn't want to drop it in the river somehow. 

The rides were great! The boat runs really well and we should have a lot of fun with it. Thanks John and Doug!

Snow Mountains

Just needed to throw up a picture of the kids running across the snow mountains in the church parking lot. 

Cascade Mountains

Jeremy and I went to Seattle last week and I took some pretty pictures of the drive. 





We went the Snoqualmie Falls way and made a quick stop by the falls. It was 45 degrees so I thought it would feel warm compared to the 10 degrees it was at home. Yet it somehow still felt really cold? 





Bangs

Elizabeth has been begging me for bangs for a while. They will take a bit more maintenance, but hopefully her hair is straight enough they will lie flat and not be too much to work with. Here she is with her new bangs.
