At the end of July, J.'s parents came out to visit us. We were super excited to see them. Kaiden kept saying that her other grandma was coming. My parents had just came a few weeks earlier, so J.'s parents were therefore labled 'the other grandma and gradpa'. We were glad that they made the trip up to see us and tried to think of some funs things we could do while they were here. When my parents were here, we went out whale watching, or should I say that we tried to go whale watching. Sadly we did not get to see any whales that day. Not to be discouraged, we decided to try again. This time we left from Port Townsend instead of Anacortes, hoping that a different route would make a differance. This time it did, because we got to see the Orcas. I was singing the last part of that line in my head while I wrote it, just so you know.

The boat was not allowed to get closer than 100 yards from the whales, so we did not get very good close up pictures of them.

It is terrific that all I need to entertain my kids is a bucket of water and the hose. That's it. They think it's great and I think what ever keeps them busy for a few minutes is fab with me.

It is strange to think that Kaiden is 4 now. It doesn't seem all that long ago that I was in labor with her for umpteen hours. Wow. All I have to say is that our family wouldn't be complete without her wierd obsessions and quirky attitude. She is fun to have around albeit sometimes she is rather annoying, but I do love her imagination and laughter. I love you my sweet girl!
O.k, O.k enough of the reminiscing. For her birthday, my friend Kim suggested they we take her to the zoo. She conveninetly had free passes for us, so I was definately up for it.
Kaiden and her friend Ryan.
After looking at all the animals, all the kids wanted to do was chill out and play at the zoo playground.
Our little friend Peyton had a blast in the water!
