We were lucky enough this summer to go to Washington and North Carolina on vacation. We had a lot of fun at both places. It was so nice to see our families. Here are some of the highlights:

Mariner's Game

Spending time with Ashlea, Eric, and Adalea

Jeff, John (Jeff's brother), and Jason (Jeff's brother-in-law) went swimming in some FREEZING cold water. I didn't get in past my ankles!

One of the fun things we did while in WA was going up to Vancouver, Canada. It was a really cool city. We went to a park that had tons of stuff to do. We also went to China Town and got some authentic Chinese food. It was delicious! One afternoon, we hung out at Tina and Jason's house - we had a BBQ, played Wiffle Ball, and Jason's dad showed us their bees. They are real bee keepers! It was really cool. On our way back to Utah, we stopped in Spokane to see Jeff's grandmother. She is so sweet and so funny! We really enjoyed spending time with her.

North Carolina
We spent most of our time in NC at the Outer Banks. It was so nice to just relax on the beach for a few days. We did some kayaking and fishing -we even caught enough fish one night to eat for dinner!

We also had the chance to spend some time with Amanda, Kensi, and Carter. Carter LOVED playing with Jeff, and I enjoyed holding Kensi any chance I got. It was so fun to spend time with Amanda. In high school, you couldn't separate us, so it's weird to live so far away for so long.

Our last night in NC, my parents invited some people over for a cookout. It was nice to see so many people that I rarely get to see. We had a lot of family and friends there, and it was a blast. I love visiting family and friends. I can't wait to see everyone in Washington and NC again very soon.
Check out the shirts my parents had made. I think they are a little excited to be grandparents!

P.S. Here I am at almost 23 weeks
