One of the main reasons we were in WA was to see my niece and nephew be baptized. I wasn’t able to steal a pic with my nephew, but my nieces were happy to pose with me. Layla, the tallest one, was one of the 2 baptized.
We had a delicious lunch after at my brother’s house. They went all out and grilled some amazing salmon.
The second reason we wanted to go to WA was to see my Grandpa and all my family I hadn’t seen in years. I think the last time we visited was about 3 years ago for my brother and sister’s wedding, remember the double weddings?
Growing up every Sunday after church we would all meet at my Grandma and Grandpas house for my aunt’s cookies, grandma’s homemade bread, and my uncle would bring watermelon. It was absolute chaos but we all loved it. My cousins were my best friends, and those memories are some of my VERY favorite. The Sunday we were there most of the cousins that still live in WA ended up coming up. It was SO MUCH FUN. It was just like the good ol’ days. I tried to get a good photo, but this was all I could get, there was family everywhere!
My grandpa’s Model A that he gives all the grand kids rides in on the 4th of July.
It was such a special trip that I’m so grateful my family could go on.
