My sister Jenny (Jonnn) and I drove to Washington to see family and friends. I was a bit worried about Abby and how well she would do but she was amazing. It probably helps that she still takes 4 naps a day.
We packed the kids in to Jonnns car. 6 kids. 2 moms. and 3 DVD players, 1 iPad, 2 iPhones, 1 iPod, 2 Leapsters, 1 GPS.... um... we were plugged in! BUT we drove safely, the kids did their things, the moms got to chat and then when we arrived at our destinations we played. It was great.
We stopped first (and last) in the Tri City area of Washington. We stayed with Jenny's sister in law. Lauren and Chad. It was so nice to visit with them. The temple is in their back yard.
Then we drove on to Tacoma to visit my good friend Neti. It was a great visit.
We went to the zoo at Point Defiance. So beautiful.
Then had lunch right on the Pugent Sound. Beautiful.
With 9 kids running around we had to have mandatory down time. The kids needed it as much as the moms did!
thanks Neti for letting us stay with you.
