Picking raspberries with the family - our buckets are empty for this picture, but we went home with 16 pounds of berries - yummy! We've been eating raspberries like crazy for the past couple days, and I made a bunch of freezer jam that will hopefully last us for a year.
Fun on the Lake - we've been down at the lake pretty much every other day while we've been here either boating, riding the wave runner, or just swimming around. I LOVE Lake Sammamish!!
Dave's flying dismount from the wake surf
I tried out the new paddle board and had a great time!
Orienteering with Jobe, Nat, & Brodie - we participated in a summer orienteering meet during our visit. Dave and I were racing Nat and Brodie and we beat them by 1 minute 40 seconds! They are in way better shape than us, but our map reading skills prevailed. After the course there was a BBQ in someones backyard and we met a guy that ran the entire thing (through the woods with brambles and blackberries) barefoot. We asked him about it and apparently he never wears shoes. Strange...
Day of Work. - During our visits we normally help with a few projects at my parent's house. Last year Dave helped to build a balcony, and this year he helped my dad take down a tree in the front yard. My dad did all the chainsaw work and Dave got to carry the rubble to the trailer. Lucky guy - it was a big tree. I don't think the girls were just sitting around while the boys were slaving away - my mom and I organized the pantry and a couple closets, all of which are now sparkly clean!
