Baseball Trip: July 24-25

Chris and I had a great time during our weekend in Seattle - and with two boys ages 4 and 1.5, we took SO many pictures!

I'm glad Emily commented on the fact Chris and I slept so many nights in the car... when I talked to my brother on the phone a day or two before we arrived in Seattle, I told him we had just spent our 4th consecutive night in the car, and he said, "Well, Brooke, you're in luck! We have a spare car up here, so you and Chris can each have your own car to sleep in!" Oh, brothers...

July 24 - Hike with Trent, Jake and Ryan; Cook-out at Trent's house
Chris found a snake next to the path and the boys thought it was awesome! Trent is my brother in the blue hat, Ryan is the 1.5-year-old blondie in Trent's arms, and Jake is the four-year-old in the red hat... and Chris is the snake charmer.
We walked to a place where water drips onto drums - and when the water stops, you can clap or tap your feet to get the water to start again. Jake and Ryan loved clapping and dancing for the drums!
Aunt Brookie and her two adorable nephews, Jake and Ryan!
The Sanden crew! Trent, Jake, Ryan and me!
