My 17 year old cousin Sadie is here visiting us for the week, and are are living it up playing tourists in our own city. It's been really fun having her here and showing her around.

We figured there's no better way to see the city than on a boat, so we sailed last night. Someone mentioned Seattle has the highest rate of boat ownership in the country, boasting 1 in every 6 people. This city loves the water.

Summer at it's finest.

Picnicking at Green Lake. My sister in law just took an amazing job in Seattle after living away for 14 years, so we are celebrating wholeheartedly. We have our second lake vacation coming up this summer, this time with my husband's family instead of mine, and we couldn't be more excited.

We are soaking up all that August has to offer and are so thankful. Enjoying and looking forward to a lot of really good things.
