One year old shots

It is hard to imagine how much this 23 pounds has changed my life. And the best thing about him is that he is all smiles and so happy! Sorry they are almost 2 months late, but better late than never. Thanks again to Mellor Photography for doing such a great job at capturing his cute personality!

Summer visit

At the begining of June, we had our yearly summer visit from Soder's side of the family. Luckily we had the best weather during the first half of their visit. So we did a little of this....
Walking along the beach in Alki
Catching a Mariner's game where we almost got pelted with a foul ball (thankfully it hit about 6 feet behind us.)
Woodland Park Zoo, where it is always fun to just wander.

And out favorite, Gas Works park. It was a great visit, but was over way quick. Thanks for visiting us Soder Clan. We hope you can make it up again before the end of the year.

Miss me???

I have just been taking a 'break' from blogging for a while since we had visitors and then the catch up game for the last few weeks. It has been a crazy month, and I will post some more about it soon.
All that has really changed is that my mother is half way through her treatments and is doing well. (yeah!) She will be finished with the first (and hopefully only) round of chemo and so far hasn't been vomit-trocious, but just achy and tired.
My inlaws visited and we had a great time, but now we have no visitors on the docket so it might be a REALLY lonely summer. (especially since my mother can't travel up here until Fall.) Pictures of all the festivities while the Soder's were up here to follow.....
