Parents of 5

Rob and I had a house full when my sister Julie and her husband Rod left their 5 kids in our care as they went to Hawaii to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary.  Having 7 people crammed in our three bedroom house for 9 days made us feel like we were bursting at the seams, but thanks to daily activities, a dog, and 2 Xbox 360s, we were able to make it through and actually enjoy ourselves. 


Everyone stuck a piece of gum on the gum wall when we visited Pike Place Market


We braved the zoo on a rainy day. 


We had a beautifully sunny day where we enjoyed the sand at Golden Gardens.


We went  to Greenlake and rented a canoe, paddle boards, and a kayak.


We hiked Rattlesnake Ridge


We discovered some talent for Mountain biking at Duthie Hill Bike Park. 

It was a great visit and I think everyone had a great time. Thanks to the Rivers’ family for making the long journey up to hang out with us.
