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.
