It has actually felt like summer the last few days in Olympia. We love it. The 4th of July ended up being a bit of a debacle. Telfer of course was working but it turns out our house is in the center of all firework celebrations in the area. Although you can't see much you can hear everything. Cate is not a fan of loud noises right now and the sounds were deafening. I decided (probably a bad decision) to wake her up instead of letting her awaken on her own. I took her outside to watch the neighbors light off their fireworks thinking it would be better for her to see some instead of just hearing the loud noises. She was not impressed. So, for the first time in her life, she slept in my bed. And then Jane had an upset tummy and we were all up. Good times.
We are getting ready to go meet my whole family in Central Oregon for a week. Looking forward to lots of bbq-ing and swimming and sun.
