Seattle Visit and Swim Day

We went up to Seattle for Father's Day and spent a few days there with Terry and Elaine. One of the things we did was visit the Seattle aquarium, which the kids loved.
Today we went the the Othello Aquiatic Center and had a great time!

I mean...

This is Tawny's new favorite phrase. I'm pretty sure she is destined to be a lawyer because she has mastered the art of reasking the same question in different ways until she gets the answer she wants. Case in point:

T: Mommy can I have a candy?
M: No.
T: I mean later after lunch.
M: No
T: I mean when you feel like letting me have a candy.
M: Okay. You can have a candy when I feel like giving you one.

T: Mommy can I use the sharp knife?
M: No.
T: I mean tomorrow.
M: No.
T: I mean when I'm super big. When I'm bigger than you.
M: Sure, that would be fine.

T: Mommy can I play with your phone?
M: No.
T: I mean when you're done.
M: No.
T: I mean later.
M: No.
T: I mean I don't really want to play with your phone.
M: Sounds good to me.

I kid you not when I tell you that this happens every single time I tell her no, which is a million times every day. The funny thing is that she is perfectly content once she reaches the point where I am able to say yes. I think in her mind she has somehow won. I'm not sure if it's cute or mildly irritating. I think I'll go with somewhere in between.

Fun in the Sun

The sun finally came out and it warmed up! We've spent the entire day outside so far. The kids found a huge mud puddle and started splashing , and ended up having a huge mud fight

Cuddling and resting after their fun in the mud!

Rainy Fun

We decided to get out and have fun despite all the rain we've been having. So we took the kids to a local fair. Brayden and Tawny really enjoyed every second.
