We are total SLACKERS on the blog thing. Here is what the heck we have been up to!
Megan, Kourt, and little Collin came for a visit. It was so much fun!

We went to the Seattle Aquarium.

We all shared a 12 egg omelet at the landmark Seattle Beth's Cafe!

We took Saydee and Collin to the Temple. Just to give them an idea of what's to come. :)

The Fourth on the Lake.
Nice face DAD!

It was such a pretty day.

Scott was off to the Air Force Academy...this was Saydee and Scott's last night together. Saydee loves Scott, or "Ott" as she calls him.

We were part of a parade. Brynlee, my sister, was totally SICK of it. Saydee on the other hand LOVED it.

Aunt Linz, and Saydee...Syd in the background. She was hilarious. She got in like every picture I took that day. :)

This was a night in Seattle with the fam, right before Scott left for the USAFA.

Saydee and her duck, or "d" as she calls him. She LOVES ducks.

Saydee's birthday cake. She turned 1 on June 16th, and my birthday was two days after. Her birthday was TONS more fun than mine. Why is that?

She shared her birthday cake with everyone there. It was so cute.

Saydee's new boat for the pool.

Happy Birthday little Saydee girl.

We have that same little boat for Emma, and recently found out there's a recall on it: Hopefully yours isn't part of the recall! I just thought you'd want to know:)
