Alaska-Part 2-Seattle

We stopped in Seattle, WA Saturday night, spent the night at a hotel, and then left this next morning for Alaska.
Seth fell asleep on the bus on the way there.

In the hotel.

Walking around Seattle. They had really pretty flowers there!

And cool buildings... :D

Whoa............. hahahahaha I think this is my favorite picture of the entire trip. :D

Andrea the cheesecake maker

WOW!!!! A lot of you probably know that Andrea can't stand anything white and creamy (sour cream, cream cheese, cool whip, cottage cheese, mayonnaise, vanilla yogurt...... etc. haha). But yesterday... she made a cheesecake!!!!!Yep, she looks pretty disgusted to me.

It looked much better after we put the strawberries on top. It was SO good!!!! Thank you, Andi!!! Definately a sacrifice on her part. :D

Wow, God's creation is beautiful!!

It is so nice out today! Spring!!!! Andrea got her camera the other day and she took these pictures (and a bunch more ☺) on it. Isn't it amazing that God knows every little detail of every one of these flowers?!?!

5 years.....

Ian turned 5 today!
He is getting so big and sweeter every day. We love Ian! He is such a blessing to our family.
Ian likes:
He and Seth will go out and pick it straight from the garden.
Playing with Seth.
He got this sword for his birthday-well actually he got two of them. Because everything is more fun when you have someone to play with!

Family... and oreos! Mom and Andrea made him an oreo ice cream cake for his birthday. :D

He also likes animals, Playmobil, trampoline, siblings, farms, friends, taking pictures..... and lots more.
Right now he is learning: How to ride a bike and how to read. He asked for school books for his birthday! :D He is definitely enjoying learning, although it can be frustrating for the person teaching him, because he gets distracted very easily! :D

We are so incredibly blessed to have Ian as a part of our family. I'm not sure what life would be like without him, but probably quite a bit less exciting. It is so much fun to see him grow and learn. He especially loves to learn about Jesus.
We love Ian!!!!!!
