Mid visit picture at Lincoln City, OregonThe girls have so many new things that are part of their memories now; filling up the kiddie pool with the hose, darting bees on the clover in the yard, getting pitch on the bottom of their feet from walking barefoot outside (always), riding a tricycle, taking a wagon ride, picking flowers, twirling in the grass, laughing at the squirrel runs across the power line, running through the sprinkler, rolling down a hill, swinging on the monkey bars, driving fast in the car (so fast they actually doze off for a car nap), and so many more things that make me feel so grateful for having my folks in Washington to visit and stay for our summers. I am lucky and my daughters are lucky.
Early visit photo taken on day two after our arrival. Six weeks is a long time in a little girl's life. Addie and Bella have grown as fast as the vegetables in Grandma and Grandpa's garden
We are going to miss everything about being here but are ready to get back to our life and home and especially Daddy in Manila.
This will be our first time flying coach around the world. I'm trying not to think about it.
