Days of Summer

As you have all read by now, Summer in Seattle need to be enjoyed to the fullest before the winter sets in.  This summer there have not been many warm, sunny days.  On Saturday we had one of the best weather days.  Here are a few shots of Kasen enjoying the weather with Karl's sunglasses and eating blueberries on the porch.

Seattle - such a fickle friend

It has been a cold start to summer.  Sadly, the start has bled into the middle and we are feeling pretty cheated.  So like any struggling relationship, the slacker needs to put in some WORK.  In other words, Seattle needs to do a little wooing.

I am hoping today was the start.  While it wasn't super warm (barely 70), it was sunny.  So, we enjoyed an afternoon at the local wading pool.  Seattle even through in some "flowers" - a bald eagle sighting on the walk to the pool.  This city does know what I like....

Note - Kasen wants to send a thank you out to auntie Karen, phae & uncle Scott - the birthday swimsuit & water shoes are perfect.

Playing at the park

With Kasen walking now we have developed a new evening routine.  After dinner we go for a little walk in the neighborhood to get some energy out and practice walking.  At the community center (2 blocks away) there is a little play structure that is open for use when the day care is not in session.  We have started to enjoy the slide and stairs a bunch, she can even do them on her own (most of the time).

Enjoy the video!!

We are walking

It too Karl heading to Taiwan for Kasen to really get walking. While she had done a little before he left, she really starting moving around the house on two feet the day after he left. When he got home, she had to show off her new skills.  While she looks like she has had a few too many to drink at the pub she has an amazing way of keeping her balance.

Soccer is the best!

Kasen has been watching a lot of soccer between Sounders games and the world cup.  Today we cheered on the women in the finals.  Although they lost, I think they did us proud - Kasen cheered through the end (see photo).   She even practiced throw ins with her mini soccer ball.
