Time sure does fly when you're having fun (and when you're really busy too ;). We've been going going going since I've been here in the good ol' Puget Sound. I'm absolutely loving it and the kids are having a blast as well! 'Cept they both just got sick the other day and still haven't gotten over it (Guh-ROESS)... so I'm sure they're NOT loving that very much 'cause I know I sure aint. Let me sum up the past week with a few pictures:

My Mom bought this cool motorized car for the gan-kids (no, that's not a type-o). And they are LOVING it. In fact, they love it so much that they fight with eachother over who gets to drive it. Luckily their Moms are SUPER nice, and take it away once they start fighting. That way, there's just less hassle. Am I right, or am I right?! ;)

This little darling is Finley (I don't know if that's spelled right). She is my cousin's daughter, and she is an absolute DOLL! In every sense of the word. She is super tiny, light as a feather, and has a super cute little voice. Fin is so polite and helpful. I almost can't believe that she's a real kid! She spent several days hanging out with us while my cousin (her Dad) worked on my Grandparents house.
This little lady is Lucy. She is a Jack Russel Terrier(maybe... I think... I can't really remember) and is oh-so CUTE! I can't stand it! Lucy is so little and floppy and fun! It almost makes me want to have a puppy... I said ALMOST! I have to remind myself that even though puppies are super cute... they poop and pee - in your HOUSE. And that, my friends, is definitely NOT cute. So, note-to-self: enjoy everyone else's puppies... you don't need your own. The kids just adore her, and Blake is totally ga-ga over her. It's so fun to see him interact with a puppy. All he's ever known was Janie (the Anderson's pug) and she is old and slow. Not much of a threat. Puppies are so exciteable and jumpy, and Blake just wasn't used to that. Funny kid. He was wary at first, but now he likes to go to Great Grandma & Grandpa's to see the "goh-gies".

Alli and Collin (in the picture) are only a month a part (Collin is older). They are pretty funny together. Today they were just cracking up about the weirdest things. I guess you have to be 3 to really understand their jokes - and laugh. ;)

It's crazy to see how boys and girls can be so much alike, and yet so VERY different. I can't wait to see what Blake is like when he is Collin's age.

I'll continue to keep you posted. But remember, I'm having lots of fun, and staying pretty busy what, with my photography and all. Go here to see the latest in that department. I have some more pictures to share, but they are on my mom's camera and it's late. I hate to say it, but I'd rather go to sleep! ;) Stay tuned.

It's so fun to watch those cousins play and I'm happy to say there really haven't been too many fights. They've done really well together. Never a dull moment that's for sure.
