Some last photos from July including a few from our road trip into British Columbia to the town of Nelson and home again. I like their sign on our departure.
The Kootenay River along 3A in British Columbia.
We had some grand visits to our home along with their parents and we always have the goodbye rituals when it’s time for them to go home.
At a visit to Dan and Jamie’s with Granny Great I caught this photo.
Addy “reading” with all her favorites beside her.
Auntie Lolo flew east to spend some time with all of us and she captured so many sweet moments.
We introduced Addy to Josh and Dan’s Construct building toys.
Time outside at Gramps’ and Baba’s.
The weather has really heated up and Auntie Lolo captured these shots under the outdoor shade pavilion at Dan and Jamie’s. JJ can spot his mommy from a distance and it’s easy to see she is his favorite right now.
Before we went to dinner with our kids at El Ranchito in Chewelah, Dear and I attended an open house at the home of our youth pastor and his family. This is the view from their home looking across the valley to Colville. We could see our kids’ mountain in this breathtaking view. This is just part of their panoramic view.
Uncle Josh surprised us all and took a flight from Seattle to Spokane after work on Friday arriving late Friday night to spend a day and a half with all of us. Addy was thrilled to have some special time with Uncle Josh and Auntie Lolo. JJ enjoyed them, too. Jamie took this photo of Josh, Laura and JJ. JJ sees his mommy and he’s all smiles.
Laura caught this moment of JJ with me and Gramps. JJ loves to interact face to face. The photos above were taken at El Ranchito in Chewelah while we were enjoying dinner.
Josh and Laura are at the airport headed back to Seattle. We will all miss them.
The beginning of this week will be very busy for us. We are hosting a church event here at our country bungalow on Tuesday evening. If I’m scarce you will understand. I hope to take some photos of our event but…when we host big events I might forget to take photos as I’m all wrapped up in the details…
Hope the end of July goes well for you.
