Whirlwind Weekend

Chris and I had such a great weekend but it went by way to fast. After a stressful week it was welcome to have some time to relax.

Saturday after Chris got home from work we headed to Prosser, picked up his parents, and drove to Kent. We stayed the night with his aunt & uncle and enjoyed a lovely dinner and then s'mores and a fire pit on the deck. It was a beautiful warm night so we stayed outside as long as we could. They have an awesome view of the Olympic mountains and the lights of the valley. I could have sat out there all day.

Sunday morning after breakfast we packed up our things and headed out with his aunt & uncle to Snohomish to a family reunion. All of Chris' cousins on his mom's side were there along with most of their kids and of course all the parents. We had such a great time.

We had great food, played some water games, sang karaoke (well, not me), took family pictures and just hung out. The day was HOT so we were glad for the afternoon when the shade finally came to the porch. Family reunions are rare in our families so we were so glad to be able to go to this one. It was hard to leave and have a 3 hour drive home last night but our time there was well spent! I can't wait to do it again.

Now off to sort through the 120 pictures on my camera!
