We found a farm in Issaquah that is so fun. They have "open farm days" where you can stop by and visit the animals, play on the bouncy toys, ride the trains and ponies, and drive the tractors. The kids all love it and this time especially loved chasing around the ducklings, chickens and bunnies.

Finally, we ended the day at the Bellevue Downtown park with the Folkan Family. It was a fun way to end the day and the fireworks were fantastic. Levi was a little scared at first, but then he relaxed and enjoyed them for the most part. :)
Henry was a little upset ha had to get off the horse.
But, we quickly distracted him with the recycling truck.

This was the view one morning at 4:15, after getting up to feed Levi. It was beautiful, and I snapped a quick picture before I went back to bed for a couple hours.
Last night, Emma and I ran to spend some time at Derby Days. Shane stayed home with the boys and we enjoyed a quiet evening, snacking on chocolate covered strawberries, playing Uno Spin, and watching the fireworks. Luke, Lindsay and Maren joined us too. It was a fun night.
Here is Shane and Henry, waiting for the fireworks on the 4th of July to being, at Bellevue downtown park.

Henry and Shane splashed and played in the water until they were completely soaked. Emma built sandcastles down the beach from where we were sitting. Levi was exhausted, and was scared of the noise the little waves made from the boats as they passed. It was such a fun time to just sit and let the kids get completely dirty.
This is right before Levi started crawling. He had so much strength, he could push up and stay there for ever, but it took him a while to get the coordination to crawl donw.
Grandma Reckling has been crochetting this for Emma for months. Emma was thrilled that it was finally finished and she could bring it home. She name her "Princess Celestia Unicorn Unicornia".
Shane was getting ready to go do some log and stump grinding one Saturday and Henry was very interested in his safety gear. He wore around as long as he could.
Emma went with our neighbors out to Remlinger farm and picked a bunch of strawberries. They were delicious and we ate them in smoothies and on our baked oatmeal in the morning.
Prince Levi. Emma put this crown on Levi during dinner and he let it stay there through the whole meal.
While the boys take naps in the afternoon, Emma does school. We got a big workbook for her and she does a few pages a day to practice reading, writing, math and maps. She loves it. She really misses school.
