"This is my fort, Mama!"

A good part of the afternoon was spent with Lucca living in her fort under the dining room table, with all her necessities: extra shoes, water, pen, a book and some toys.

Three-year-olds are the best.

Gig Harbor

Our little family had the best time in Gig Harbor last weekend.  It is just wrong for sisters to live 2 states away.  Wrong I tell ya!  

We hiked, we barbecued, we swam, made s'mores, rode bikes, went to the beach, collected rocks, had a slumber party, fed bunnies, and ate birthday cake.  If that's not three year old heaven, I don't know what is.  It was so fun to get our little triplets back together, and now with Jackson in the mix it's just the best cousin fun you ever did see.

Swishers, we love you...your home, your dog and your hospitality.    Let's do it again soon!

Great photos -- but seriously, if I see my sister one more time without us getting a photo together I might die.

I think it's safe to say somebody's been having a good week around here!!! Our kids don't get many sweets, but these smokin' hot, no air conditioning, summer days have called for cold afternoon treats galore. Thankfully, my kid goes for the mochi toppings on her froyo. Could be worse!

Train Town

We finally made it to Train Town in Sonoma today and had a blast! This place is kid heaven (minus a brief double sibling panic attack when the train went through a pitch black tunnel). We took the 20 minute train ride first, which stopped in "town" so the kids could hop off the train and explore. There's a petting zoo with berry hungry goats & llamas, a climbing structure and several mini buildings to walk in: a saloon, barn, shops, cute! After feeding the animals, we hopped back on the train. No more long tunnels = no more tears!

We rode the carousel and then Lucca went on her very first kid ride ever without parents, the airplanes! So adorable. We put her in a plane with another little girl and she loved it. The girls didn't pull the lever that would have made them go up high, but I'm absolutely sure that was for the better.

After Train Town, we picnicked on the plaza and played on the playground before picking up our Hawkes wine club shipment. Good day for everyone ;)

We <3 Sonoma.
