We spent June 2nd-14th in New York with my sister, Karen, and her family. It was a ton of fun seeing her, Brad, and their 3 girls, as well as site seeing around the state.
A week ago last Tuesday, Tim and I took off from their house for a couple of days. We went to Niagara Falls where we spent the whole afternoon. We just enjoyed being in the sun and walking around by the falls. We did take a boat ride, Maid of the Mist, that took us pretty close to the falls. If it hadn’t have been for the disposable rain “coats” we were given, we both would have been drenched. It’s amazing how much mist came off those waterfalls. We had dinner at Tim’s first Hard Rock Café. Hard Rocks sure seemed a lot more exciting when I used to visit them with 10+ other teenagers and some die hard rock fans. It was still fun though.
Last Monday, the Wildings took us to Lake George. Tim took some family photos for the Wildings and then we enjoyed the rest of the evening walking around the shops, eating dinner, getting ice cream, and playing in the arcade. I never knew how much fun arcades were. It’s probably a good thing too, because it’s way to easy to spend money there.
Tuesday Karen took us to the capital building in Albany before we had to head to the airport. The capital building was really cool. It’s a pretty old, historic building. We left about 3:00 pm and made it to Seattle late that night.
Friday, Carmen drove us to Zillah. She and her girls stayed with us at Tim’s parent’s house that night and then headed to their dance competition on Saturday morning. Tim and I have been enjoying spending time with his parents and Hillary the last few days.
We’ve really enjoyed the opportunity we’ve had to spend time with family the last few weeks and are really grateful for how accommodating everyone has been.
We hope everyone has enjoyed Father’s Day today! I am very grateful for both my father and Tim’s father. They have had such a positive influence on both of our lives.
