My brother, Kody, my sister-in-law, Emily, and my two nieces live in Tacoma. It's less than a two hour drive, and Avery and I like to pop up there a lot for little visits when we're tired of being at home. It doesn't happen as much during the school year, but during the summer Avery is always begging to make the trip to see her cousins. Last week we went up for a couple of nights, and one full day. It was pretty warm, so we took the girls to the SERA waterpark (where Subway was giving out free lunches), ran some errands, read some books, grilled some dinner, then hung out for the evening at Pacific Lutheran University just down the street, playing basketball, volleyball and riding bikes (and trikes and scooters). It ended with sleepy kiddos, and Emily introducing me to Pitch Perfect (I picked up the soundtrack for Avery and she's been obsessed, although she was bummed that I wouldn't let her watch it). It was a pretty great day.
Oh, and one more from our trip to Target, because these girls are the cutest.
