Maren just finished up a nice relaxing three day weekend. We stayed busy at times, and just did nothing at times. We were invited to the Kent Swim and Tennis Club for a BBQ the other day. The moment Maren walked through the front door, guided to the locker rooms (boys and girls) and then out to the pool, she loved the place...reminded her of going to the neighborhood pool everyday as a kid. Maybe someday we will join the KSTC, I know Maren would like that.
Yesterday Maren and Preston took a trip to Costco and Fred Meyers while I took Hansen and Lillie to Piano Lessons. I used to have a deal with Preston that for every goal he scored [in a soccer game] he would earn a dollar candy...well, now with braces being installed on Preston's teeth tomorrow, we have gone away from hard candy and moved to ice-cream. Preston is OK with ice-cream...as is everyone in this ice-cream loving family.
These pictures are kind of just some typical things the kids do in the summer. Here is Lillie enjoying a slip and slide.
Here is Lillie eating an Otter pop. We do enjoy Otter pops at this house.
Preston was nice enough to buy his brother and sister a tub of cotton candy.
Last night I took Preston and Hansen to Starfire to watch Preston's old soccer coach (Matt) play in a soccer game. He was on a team playing in the All Nation's Cup. His team (Japan) got beat in a semi-final match by a team from Mexico. Tonight I am bringing Preston and Connor to see the Seattle Sounders play in the U.S. Open Cup.
Enjoy the warm days of summer, I will see you in a couple of days.
