Our New Home

With our San Diego adventure behind us (I'll try to keep the sobbing to a minimum.....), we made the trek back north to WA, retrieved our belongings, which have been in storage for the past year, and moved into our new home in Western Washington.  We now live in a rather small town, but we love the location because it only takes Leon about 10-15 minutes to get to work, and we are also very close to Bellingham, Mt. Baker, the Puget Sound, and Canada.

Here are some pictures of our new house on moving day:

Happy 4th Birthday, Beckett!!!

Beckett arrived 4 years ago today.  We are discovering that in a lot of ways, he is an "old soul," and perhaps his (very) early arrival was an indication that he knew what was going on and just wanted to get going - a lot like he is now.  

Grandpa Ed, Grandma Kathy, Grandpa Stan, Uncle Austin, Auntie Aleah & Trevor all flew down to help Beckett celebrate his big day.  Beckett has been talking about his birthday for MONTHS now, so he was so excited for his big day to arrive.

a busy end of summer

The end of August and all of September were way too busy for us and just flew by.  We finished our time in San Diego, and moved back to WA.......here are a few pictures to catch up:

Lunch and an afternoon with Robin L. and Laura B.

Several from our family came down to San Diego for Beckett's 4th birthday (more on that later....)....., we we had a bbq picnic at the beach.  The boys had fun roasting marshmallows for smores:

Our last meeting at Bertha & Argyle's - here are most that we met with there.  We will miss everyone SO MUCH!!!
