Memorial Day Weekend

We had so much fun this memorial weekend. And of course we went boating as many days as possible. Friday, Saturday and Monday. Friday and Monday we went with Becca and her family. On friday we mostly just tooted around lake Washington, we went all the way past Lake Washington up to Lake Union where we could see the space needle. It was a lot of fun. Then on Monday we took the kids on a ride on the tube. All the kids loved it and wanted to go again and again. Audrey was our little dare devil and wanted us to really whip her around. We even took Brody for a ride. He was only on the tube for a couple of minutes and then fell asleep.

On Saturday our good friends the Angel's invited us over for a barbecue. This was a lot of fun. Tina Angel owns this fun wig and pulls it out every once in a while for a good laugh. All us girls decided to try it on this time.

After a fun barbecue, it was starting to feel really hot outside. Both the Angel's and us have boats so we decided to load them up and head down to Lake Washington. Again, what a Blast. Everyone there, except Sara who was due to have her baby anyday was able to get in the water and cool off.

Look at me now!

Can you believe that I am 6 months old? Boy how time flies when you are having so much fun. I am now sitting up all by myself! I can hold my bottle by myself too. I am also eating food. I don't like baby food at all. But I love food that I can hold and feed myself. My favorite foods have got to be Pizza Crust and Ice Cream. Which is how I got this awesome physique!! Just joking. My mom only let me have them once, but she could tell by how intense I got that I was really enjoying them. I like Bannanas, apples, toast, cheerios and graham crackers. I sleep through the night which makes mommy and daddy a lot nicer when they come get me in the morning. I love to smile and play with my older brothers. They are my best friends!

Here is a picture of Blake and Davie having fun on the trampoline. They sure have fun when they get together.They are such goofballs.

David, Blake, and Dana had so much fun playing all day!

How To Eat A Graham Cracker

*Note: These pics below are posted by Becca. I snapped these ones after we had made the post, but I thought they were such a crack-up, that I hacked into Maria's blog to post them... and since Maria's computer is on the fritz and she can't view pics, you'll have to leave her a comment telling her how adorable Brody is!

Can Anyone Guess what we did yesterday???

Okay, I know you might start getting sick of our family boat pictures, but you know how it is when you get a new toy.....

Yesterday was a perfect day to go boating. This time we took it out to Lake Washington. We invited some of our friends the Stephenson family to come with us. The boys had a lot of fun. They liked when Eric would go really fast and do fast turns.

Here are some more pictures:

Brody enjoying the boat ride and all the fun company.

Maria, Eric and Brody. Just chillin on the boat. Look how beatuiful it was yesterday. The water was so blue, and the scenery was amazing. We tried hard not to covet all those beautiful houses on the lake. I know I look wind blown again. I am going to have to figure out what to do with my hair on the boat.

Sandi and Joe posing for a pic. Aren't they so cute! I thought this was a good picture of these two.

Joe and Bridger Stephenson.

Sandi, Maria and Brody. Brody didn't seem to appreciate Eric turning his head to the camera. I am afraid he may grow up to have a phobia of camera's.

Eric let Tommy try to drive the boat all by himself today and Eric went and sat on the open bow with Blake. Tommy was a little nervous at first, but when he realized there was nothing for him to crash into, he had a lot of fun, just look at his face!

I would like to say Eric was going so fast that it scared the pants off Blake, but Blake was not scared at all, maybe he was just going so fast, it BLEW the pants of Blake. All and ALL, Blake had a Blast.... WE ALL DID!!
