With that said, the summer of 2014 has just about come and gone. We had a wonderful 6 week visit to North Carolina, and have enjoyed the last 6 weeks back in WA with friends and Daddy. :) I could never go into the detail that I would like to on our visit, but hope to capture some of our favorite moments on our blog to share. So, ready or not, fall, here we come! :)

The babies in the tidal pool.
Such a stud!
While home, I also got to see my friends Beth and Katherine, which were huge blessings. I am so thankful to keep in touch with these precious friends. The beginning of the summer was actually started with my 10 year reunion. It was nice to see old friends and catch up.
Below is a picture of Mo Mo and her babies. My Mom is such a trooper and I am so thankful for the time I got to spend with her and my sister. Some how, I went all summer and didn't get a single picture of my Dad. :( Jude loves the fact that Pop drives an ice cream truck. One night, he actually realized that he was selling it to other children and about had a panic attack thinking he would sell it all and not save some for Jude. ha!
We enjoyed a visit from good friends, Christie and Jackson, at the end of July from Mercer Island. We have spent some time at local lakes to beat the heat. We've completed the summer with cook outs (or BBQ's as they say here) with good friends and spending lots of time in our new sand box and wading in the creek.
Again, the summer has flown by and long awaited time has come and gone. Fall is my all time favorite season though, as it means football, pumpkins, boots and scarves, my birthday, lovely colors, and cooler weather...Thank you Lord, for yet again, a beautiful and memorable summer.
