I love August!

It finally warmed up and we have been making the most of our short summers here. We headed down to the Snoqualmie river with our neighbors and the kids had a great time playing in the shallow pools of water.

Relaxing in the sand.

Our vegetable garden is growing. We have broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes, beets and radishes in this raised bed.

Our hostas love our NW weather and the parsley and sage is growing fast too!

Zucchini, yellow squash, cucumber and more tomatoes.

Grown in our garden!

And yes, the sun does shine here. We even warmed up to 80 degrees and had to cool off in sprinklers. It does feels like 100 degrees to us when it gets to 78 degrees!

Mike came home from Iraq 2 weeks ago and Millie and I love having him home with us everyday. We are so lucky.

Clematis on the vine!

Outside BBQ dinners.

Sun setting across from Mt. Si. The sun just makes everything pretty here!

Gearing up for a hike to Denny Creek.

Off we go to Franklin Falls/Denny Creek.

Wow, big cauliflower and nice pics. We didn't grow anything this year. You need to scrap some of those pics, lol.
