what we've been up to! A couple weekends ago, the girls and I took a trip up to visit my grandma Joyce (my dad's mom). The first evening we were there, we saw a family of eight seals splashing around in the water!!
Right afterward, another visitor meandered across the front lawn - a sea otter! :)
The girls really enjoyed collecting shells, sand dollars and rocks on the beach.
A local church held a carnival on Saturday. Allison enjoyed a fun horse ride and bouncy castle!
Abby won a cake (it figures that the cake walk would be her favorite game!) and played a little golf.
The girls enjoyed their first taste of cotton candy.
We spent the next week enjoying beautiful weather, with plenty of playing outdoors!
While getting ready for swim lessons, Abby discovered Allison's goggles and decided to give them a try.
Here's the butter that Allison made while studying colonist life in the New World.
This past weekend, we visited the Maryhill Art Museum. It's a great museum with gorgeous lawns and peacocks! There is a nearby park with campground also. It was fun to see all of the hundreds of windmills that have been set up out that way. After the museum, we headed over to Goldendale for a visit to the observatory. Even Abby enjoyed seeing a live broadcast of the sun! (She has been very enthusiastic about stars and the moon lately - no idea as to why, but "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" is a popular song in our home!)
