After a challenging week me and my lil' flock
where able to spend the weekend in Seattle with Grammie Kathy.
Grammie Kathy, Vivian, Colter and Rollin.
Rollin and Vivian.
Sunset on Spring.
Rollin, Vivian and Grammie Kathy.
Colter's first trip to the beach.
The lil' man likes the sand!
This sums up Colter's life with Big Sissy.
The steep climb back to the house.
And I didn't even have to carry these two this time!
Next we got the pleasure of welcoming summer with the Fremont Solstice Parade!
Me, Colter, Vivian and Rollin.
Front row seats!
One of the many interactive parading participants.
Vivian maintained a rather serious face as she assessed the situation and took in every detail.
No high school bands here!
Lots of sounds and colors to catch ColT's attention.
I loved these flapper dancers!
Fun and confident!
Again I say, "no high school bands here!"
This giraffe was amazing!
If you ask Rolli and Viv what their favorite part of the parade was
they might just say laying down for the ball.
(of course they may also say the naked, painted hinney moonies)
Vivian, Rolli and Grammie Kathy getting into position.
And the ball rolls on!
The parade watchers layed in the street and propelled this giant ball on it's way.
That was awesome!
Grandpa Steve, Grammie Kathy and Rolli
navigating the festivities.
Vivian, me and Colter.
Best way to stay close in a crowd!
Vivian getting her face painted with a butterfly.
If you've ever snuggled Vivian and tickled her chin you know this look.
Even the way she is holding her hands.
Rolli getting a T-Rex painted on his face.
Rolli and Vivian.
Hopefully they'll stick with the face paint!
