Leavenworth Weekend...

This weekend we spent a couple of nights at Amy and Brent's cabin to celebrate Brent's birthday and all the father's that came up for their special day.  I feel like we just kick started our summer of camping and the outdoors. Yay.  Although we stayed at the cabin, it is just one step removed from camping, so it is the perfect transition.  We had a beautiful sunny weekend and the kids all played well (although, my child needed reminding at times, but for the most part, it seemed to work out.  We're in yet another phase... sigh).  Thanks for a great weekend Amy and Brent!

The property is awesome and the kids loved exploring and hiking around.  This year was so fun because the kids could be a little bit more independent and trusted to play on the front side of the hill... 

The swing and hammock were the two major highlights for the kids.  Maeve even puked after one particular wild ride in the hammock... We learned our lesson after that.  Ha.  But, she puked and rallied... 

Clara soaring... 

The pink and purple polk-a-dot girls... 

The kids managed to play 'Sequence' rather successfully... 

The crew...

The birthday boy enjoying his corn on the cob...   

The cabin... so perfect. 

We spent a couple of hours fishing this afternoon before we ventured home...


The kids were loving fishing...   

Maeve reeling in her first fish... 

Her first fish! 

Clara's first fish ever too.... (Bennett has fished plenty, but he wasn't very interested in getting his picture taken this afternoon).. 

Maeve was a bit of a skeptic going into this whole thing, and then she didn't want to leave the boat after she realized how fun it all is... 

Family photo... the best one I managed...

Maeve and Bennett looking for fish... pondering life.

We are lucky to live so close to such beautiful scenery...  I wish I'd have remembered my real camera.  Thank goodness for the iPhone then...
