School doesn't start for a couple more weeks and we've been busy enjoying the last of summer here in Washington. Here's a recap of what we've been up to the last couple weeks:

More backpacking... ...time with Aunt Darla and cousin Vilia...
...where Vilia displays expressions of concern and wonderment regarding her crazy cousins.
We rented a bike contraption on vacation that Isabelle insisted upon. Of course she wanted to ride it...she and Maddy sat in back while Jason and I did all the work!
The fam on holiday!
There was swimming...
...and more "vacation ice cream".
We held strongman competitions...
...and roasted marshmallows by the fire.

Isabelle and Madeleine made...
...and consumed endless popsicles.
We've had pizza nights...

...and made "water mixtures".

We've even managed to squeeze in a few play dates.

I guess what I'm trying to say is we're making sure summer ends with a splash!

Wow, your blog might become famous, but I always knew that your work was very special. Love the new summertime pix and happy to see the girls enjoying their new yard. Enjoy your last few weeks of summer!

I am completely perplexed why my child has goggles on in your "extremely greatest pool" (that's Laney's quote!).
