Between June 5th and now... we did a lot of fun things.
A dear friend from camp got married (in Leavenworth) and we had a fun mini-TTR reunion there.
Olaf had a birthday party.
I had a birthday (31).
Two other dear friends got married and threw a heckofa party.
Steve and I went on a week long rafting trip on the Rogue River (sans kiddos).
Olaf had a birthday (4).
We crammed in as much gardening as possible. (not much).
Interspersed with work, and softball games too (mine).
And also Jenny and her kiddos stayed for a week so her kids and Olaf could go to Vacation Bible School together!
Best of all... my sister Kirsten had her baby!! Little Elsa Katherine Encinas. Born yesterday July 1st :)
We are tired.
Need a vacation from all this vacation!
But seriously, all those events were well worth it, spent with treasured friends.
I'd like to do a few separate posts on things, but in case I don't, here's a few photos to share of our good times.
