August 28th, 2009 by Allan · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Sure, the “Staycation” may be the talk of these times, but trends are made for bucking.  With characteristic fear of the traveling unknown, we hopped on a red-eye with the girls and headed east to Cape Cod for 10 days with the Grandparents Bradley, Aunts Nisa and Laura, Uncle Truman, and Cousins Maren and Alden.  […]

The birthday season

We had a really nice day, celebrating the girls 1st year.  Allan and I came home from work early and spent the afternoon with the girls down at Madison Park — we dipped the girls’ toes in Lake Washington (too cold, was the girls’ feeling) and spent lots of time in the baby swings (big […]
