We met up with the Block and Olsen families in Lake Chelan last week for a little camping, a little running and some sun! We sort of rocked it all around.
Getting to chelan was difficult due to all the fires. We had to take a few detours along the way and it took about an hour and a half longer than usual. But as soon as we pulled up we were able to unload and get dinner all fixed up in no time!!
I'm my worst critic with my race results but I think it was a good showing three years after my first half! Julie and Shan did the 10k and of course they kicked butt. Three ladies in our group of 7 got first in our age groups. I think we can say we sweeped the races!
Both Tova and deven loved camping of course. Bed time was...interesting...but as all the ladies said the second night was way better!! Deven became a junior ranger and had his first toobing ride. This kid is seriously growing up.
This was Tova's first camping trip. She was super super bummed about not getting on the boat ride but popsicles, chips and smoors helped the situation.
Thankfully the Blocks had a camper with air conditioning and a DVD player. Both were used intermittently by these west side, new camping family folks!!
On the way back we visited the Lower family in Cashmere and they gave us a tip on a quicker detour home. We stopped in Leavenworth for a quick dinner (and ice cream of course) then we got ourselves home...even sort of close to bedtime!!
Speaking of keeping the kiddos out late earlier this month we met up with Aunt Anne for a soccer game and dinner. We may have gotten home a little more timely but it took us about an hour to walk back to the car, what with the fountains, two bathroom visits and all the cuteness.
For Deven's actual birthday I picked him up early from school, took him to get some tacos for lunch and an Apple crumble pie for his birthday treat an excellent excuse to try out the Snohomish Pie Company we keep ogling at when we go to the little downtown area. I have the best video of us signing to him - I'll try to attach it soon! Oh and this first pic is just a fun one I got from school - one I can show all his friends later in life!!
We spent the 4th with good friends eating yummy food!! Tova found out fireworks are only cool from behind a window and July is apparently the month we keep the kids up super late every weekend. We got to sleep in until 9:30am the next day though - that is - no joke - the most I've slept in five years. The bottle of wine may have killed the recovery this would have given me but it was still pretty sweet!!!
