A Day in the Life- June

Better late than never!  This is our day in the life in June, posted in September:)  We enjoyed a family day on a Saturday in the midst of many packed summer weekends full of weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, bachelorette parties, birthday parties, reunions, and the like.  We took a trip to the westside ( what people from Eburg call the Seattle area) and attempted a raspberry picking day only to be foiled by the typical early summer Seattle rain.  But Matthias picked a ton of berries so at least it wasn't a total fail, right?  Except of course when he accidentally dropped them all in the mud.  Oh well, memories were made:)  On to the "free" animal farm where the kids had a blast looking at the chickens and pigs.  And of course no trip to the animal farm (or any public place for that matter) is complete without a timeout or two. Or three.  And yes I took a photo of one of my children in timeout.  We followed the day with what ended up being our last visit to see the kid's Great Great Grandma McCormick.  She passed away only a couple of months later at the age of 97.  It was a special visit and was thankful to have one last photo taken with her.  Then on to visit the kid's Great Grandparents for dinner and lots of play time.  The evening ended with a quiet and peaceful 2 hour drive home with two children exhausted and passed out in the back.  I love it when that happens.  I would say it was a successful day trip.
