Yesterday Bethany and I took the kids to CLIX to get "cousin pics" for mom for her bday!! OK - try getting a hyper 3 year old to sit still, a 3.5 month old to look at the camera and not cry when she sees her mom, and Marc to hold a smile the entire time. NOT EASY. It was actually crazy. After they took about 65 digital photos, there was ONE that was passable. I'll scan them later and post them. Pretty funny. Oh well, Nana will be pleased. I showed Dad last night and he said she'd really like it. Matty had a "day out with Nana" on Monday. They got to ride the bus (which was a HUGE treat for Matthew), play in the salt water in Mukilteo, get ice cream and have loads of fun. Unfortunately Matty gave himself a black eye, so Nana will have her grand kids picture with a little extra decoration. Oh, and Matt also colored pink marker on his arm and I didn't notice until we got to CLIX. Nice.
Marc had a day out with Nana a couple weeks ago. The theme for the day was "transportation." They drove down to Edmonds, took the train to Seattle, rode the trolley, went kayaking on Lake Union (where they saw Auntie Molly and Auntie Hilly at work waving from their office), and took the train back home. Oh, and there was a bus involved too. And they got to meet Papa for lunch at his restaurant. It was a GREAT time. Here are a few pics from both of the kids days with Nana.
