Nana & Papa's house

Our family vacation this summer was a trip to Washington to visit Nana and Papa. I hadn't been home in 2 1/2 years and my parents hadn't spent time with the grandkids in over a year, so it was a welcome week away. It was wonderful to spend time with family, see dear friends, and play around in both rain and sunshine.

Jake loves anything that GOES! and he was big enough this year to take a spin with Papa on his beloved motorcycle. Serious fun!
There was a "tall ship" in port at Bellingham Harbor, so we ventured down one afternoon.

Makenna at the playground...the child has no fear.
 So sweet!
We all went to a kangaroo farm where you could pet and/or feed most of the animals.
Uncle Tyler fits right in!

Uncle Tyler is a firefighter at the Burlington Fire Station and Jake's birthday present from him and Auntie Kristen was a behind the scenes tour of the fire station. Coolest present ever, if you ask me!

Sitting in the driver's seat, ready for the call!

Jake even got to "put out a fire" using the fire hose!
Kenna liked dancing around the fire hydrant.
The raspberries were in full bloom and did we ever partake, just about every chance we got!

Ice cream and fresh raspberries! And Makenna wasn't about to let her fair share be eaten by Mom without a fight!
Yep, still a Monkey!
