The first weekend we were there was Miner's Jubilee, and Jeremy's kids were there visiting as well. Mom and I took the kids to the park for an elephant ear. The kids were all big fans of the fair food.
These kids love their grandma! I'm not sure who was stealing lemonade from who here. We will just say they were sharing.
Saturday morning was the Miner's Jubilee parade. Animals and guys in funny cars ride by and throw you candy? Sarah thought this was the best idea ever. She was less excited when I took away the blow pops.
I think we collected almost enough candy for everyone.
Sarah tried to go along on the trip to Seattle.
The next day, Sarah fell asleep on the 5 minute drive home from church. It was much too late for a nap, and I figured she would wake up when I brought her inside. She slept through the transfer, multiple tummy raspberries, and a diaper change. She is her father's daughter.
Grandma's house is so much fun! Sarah loved playing in the play house and the gravel box. She requested to go outside as soon as we got up in the morning.
We went to Union one day, and Sarah did some splashing in the creek at Uncle Donny's house.
There isn't anything much better than a creek on a hot day!

My little pioneer girl.
Ah, summer. Just relaxing.
Aunt Katy got to come from Portland to visit for one weekend. We were so excited to see her!

Sisters are the best!
I took advantage the free babysitter to get some sewing time in. Sarah and I looked pretty cute in our matching outfits. Girls are so fun!
Someone discovered where Grandma keeps the chocolate chips. This kid can sniff out chocolate from a mile away.
Sink baths were a favorite activity at Grandma's house. She once spent almost 2 hours in there.
What, I'm not supposed to be on the table? But there was a dinosaur up here!
We found Sarah a walking, talking dog at a yard sale. She was in love. She insisted that puppy needed some breakfast, so I got her a bowl of cocoa puffs. Sarah was glad to assist the dog with her food. Of course, now she thinks that dogs eat chocolate.
Jeremy's family stopped by again at the end of their trip and we all had fun making s'mores in the back yard. Managing 4 little ones around a fire is a little bit exciting, though. Sarah was ready to dive right in.
Our last night there, Grandma & Grandpa took Sarah for a walk and then Sarah and Grandma had a little snuggle. Sarah fell fast asleep. This girl sure loves her Grandma. Thank goodness for FaceTime so we get to see her every day!
