Chillin' at Priest Lake

This past week I was able to get some much needed "mommy time" with the boys at Priest Lake.  It was great to be able to be with my Dad and Grandma for a day and with my Mom for several.  I then had the boys by myself for a few days until Josh joined us for a long weekend.  It was so nice of my parents to let us use their house for the weekend.  Brendan loved all of his outside time.  He has become an outdoor kid.  He wakes up in the morning and says "outside mommy" and that is what we hear until he crawls in bed at night.  He loved going for long walks (he is able to walk with us--not in the stroller--for 3-4 miles...crazy, he giggles, runs and laughs with joy the whole way), driving his car in the driveway, blowing bubbles, drawing with chalk, going out for ice-cream, digging in the sand and rocks, and driving his trucks all over.  He was able to see baby squires, play with dogs and go for a boat ride--life doesn't get much better.  Evan did great as well, he enjoys laying and looking at the trees, falling asleep on walks, and getting so much attention from everyone.  He has started to laugh, roll over, and grab things.  He likes when we pull him up to a sitting position and then to standing--he is a flirt and makes us all smile. 

The last day we were able to have our friends Ryan and Qui come up with their dog Eva.  We are thankful for good friends and loved our quality time with them.  Brendan loved playing with Eva, makes us all the more convinced that we need a dog :)

Here are a few pics from the week...I don't have many (hard to hang out with two boys and take pictures).
