I now COMPLETELY understand why my parents made Christina and I go to bed ridiculously early as kids. There is something so nice about those quiet hours in the evening when the littlest pumpkin is passed out in his bed. Summer has officially arrived in Washington State, at least for two days. It was absolutely delightful to sit on the front porch playing games while eating cookies and milk. We spent all day trimming hedges, weeding and cleaning gutters, so it was nice to enjoy some down time and be together. I really love summertime.
