Irises


Earlier this summer, the irises were blooming in the garden and they looked so pretty. The shapes inside were so interesting,


and the sunlight lit the flowers' interior in such an interesting way, I couldn't resist and took about a zillion pictures.

There's just something about flowers blooming in the garden that just makes me smile...

Fireworks!


The Island's fireworks this year this year were really good. They started out a little on the slow side but built up into a wonderful finale. Well, three finales actually. The technicians  kept psyching us out, but when the horns sounded after the third one, we knew they were over. It was a great way to end a fun-filled day.

Happy Independence Day!
Our day is going to be filled with good friends,
games, a picnic, and of course fireworks.
How about you?

Seattle: Kerry Park


We were a little surprised to be treated to sun on our first day in Seattle. Ying Ying and Miguel thought it was a prefect day to check out the view from Kerry Park.


It was a lovely little scenic overlook with an amazing view of Seattle, as well as art to appreciate. Which, of course, meant the kids had to climb all over it.


Plus, down below, the kids discovered a wonderful little playground. And who can resist new playground equipment? Certainly not my family - we had to try every single thing! It was great fun.
