Tulip Fields

These gorgeous fields of tulips are just a half an hour away from us! They were absolutely amazing, and we picked the PERFECT day to go and the PERFECT time to go! We did this last saturday and the weather was spectacular - sunny and warm! We got there around 5:30 so TONS of people were leaving! So it wasn't too crowded and the sun stays up for forever, so we still had tons of daylight. This was of course Kristie's first time, so we were very camera happy. 

A year ago last April, we did this when Jason & I came to WA to visit while I was pregnant. We caught miserable weather! It was raining, cold and muddy! So we REALLY appreciated the completely dry dirt, sun and warmth. YESS! (At the very bottom is a picture from last year!)

This was us last year. Hah! Such a difference!

And the cuteness continues...

Yesterday we took advantage of the sun and headed out to Picnic Pointe heavens it's been forever! We used to go there a lot when we were kids, so it was fun to take Kristie there. To get to the beach you have to go over a bridge that goes over the railroad tracks...trains go through there a ton, so you can stand right over them as they pass by! If we heard a train coming when we were kids playing on the beach, we'd run as fast as we could up the bridge so we could stand over the train passing through. Anyway, we got sub sandwiches from Jersey Mike's and ate them at a picnic table at the beach. How fun!

On a walk to the library the other day, also in AWESOME weather!

This was the day before we went to Utah.

The "Oh Henry" Trip

Kristie, Dad, Ada, Dallin and I drove to Utah to meet our newest nephew, Henry, in Utah. We pulled off a 13 hour drive (turned into 14 or 15) with little K. She was a trooper, I'll just say that. Definitely don't want to do that again anytime soon!

Henry's just the sweetest little baby boy! I'm so glad we were able to go visit him and our family there!! 

Happy go lucky smiler!
Still loves to drive. =)
Two day old Henry! Our first sight of him. What a cutie! I honestly kept thinking over and over again..."Was Kristie seriously this small?!"

The Frank grandkids!

Oh man, I love these sandals. They show off her insanely cute little toes.
