Grandpa Larry and Grandma Janine visit!

They were here for the weekend, so we mainly just hung out around the house. We did see the great movie, Dolphin Tale, which Anthony really enjoyed!

Here are some pictures. :)

Spring Kindergarten Journal

One more scanned journal from Kindergarten. This time, it was spring, the last quarter in school before summer.

As you can see, Anthony got a lot better with his letters, and it's obvious how train-obsessed he is. He also told some fibs ("I went to grandma's house").

Kindergarten Journal 2

Continuing the scanned work from Kindergarten, this was from the second quarter.

Anthony's Kindergarten work

We bought a new printer/scanner last week. The scanner is really nice and fast. It can scan and process a page in about 12-15 seconds. This sure as heck beats the old process of scanning, even just a few years ago.

I have a bunch of Anthony's art work from Kindergarten and thought I'd share some as I get it scanned.

Up first, Anthony's Kindergarten Journal from the first quarter.

Blue Angels in August

SeaFair is always fun for us. A few years back, I got to go out on a friend's friend's (a friend of a friend) boat. Last year, we went and met the Blue Angels down at the Museum of Flight and the weather was awful. This year, one of my old friends was in town and we met up at a mutual friend's house. That friend's house was ground zero for Blue Angels viewing!

So, we met at the house, at the top of hill in a neighborhood called Madrona. We walked roughly 300 feet in elevation down the hill (not too bad going down) to the lake. Then we watched the planes do their airshow. It took about 45 minutes, and then we braved the crowds and walked back up the hill. I don't recommend the walk back. We were achy and hot and miserable when it was done. But, overall, the experience was fun!

The view from near the top of the hill.

Same as above.

The finale!

They were so close and loud!
