The worst trauma they experienced on the trip was 10 minutes into their first nap. We had put their pak 'n plays in the shade in the grass. Promptly at 10am, the sprinklers turned on (full force) and sprayed them right out of their sound sleep. That was the end of their nap. Poor babies, but it is pretty funny in hindsight.
Although we didn't manage to get pictures, there are some videos.
Jack playing in the pool at our campsite at Lincoln Rock. He now jumps like this in his backyard kiddie pool, in his crib, and even on the living room floor.
Avery playing in the dog's water dish
Jack and Avery driving the boat while it's parked at the campsite. This is the closest they came to riding in the boat on the water...
Claire, Annie and Lillie tubing. All was well until they asked to go faster. I guess Lillie told Stef that her life jacket didn't work because her head got wet!! It sounds like they recovered fairly well from the unexpected submersion.
This week in Seattle has been hotter than ever, literally. We had the hottest day on record on Wednesday. The airport reported a temp of 103 degrees. Our outside temperature gauge at our house got up to 107. Anyway, our friends Angelica and Stefan and their girls Stella and Fiona came out to beat the heat with us. It was a fun time and we got some cute pictures of the four kids.

Thank you Angelica, Stefan, Stella and Fiona for hanging out and helping us get through the stifling heat. It's always more fun with friends!!
