Train, ice cream and river

On Sunday we continued our tradition of going for a train ride in the morning followed by an ice cream cone, lunch and of course river time! Declan enjoyed floating on the river with his dad and looking at the clay on the other side of the river. Declan was so exhausted he fell asleep while eating dinner.

Feeling included

Declan often feels left out that his Brother get so many snuggles. So he decided to sit on my lap while Wesley was eating. I stretched out my legs onto the ottoman  and Declan sat on top of them and snuggled right back. He wanted to take a selfie so here we are.

Cabin Time for Declan

This weekend we were finally able to make it to the cabin. We drove up Friday night and got up Saturday morning for a hike. We devoured monkey bread with Mao and Pop before Uncle Scott, Elias and Bennett arrived to hike to Tonga Ridge with us. With three little boys and a baby it was a slow but exciting walk. We saw Sasquatch hair and looked for the Gruffalo as we walked. The weather was perfect and the views were beautiful!

That evening we had spaghetti for dinner. Declan, Mao and Daddy walked down to scope out the beach for river playing on Sunday. They came back to roast marshmallows and devour smores!

In the morning after a breakfast of eggs and bacon we headed into Skykomish so Declan could take Wesley on his first train ride!Wesley loved it and looked around the whole ride. He also rang the bell inside the train depot. Declan played with the trains in the depot and took several rides. He was disappointed that the Deli was closed so we couldn't get an ice cream cone!

After the train ride we went back to float and relax by the river. We had a great time. Wesley enjoyed a nap in the shade while Declan played in the sand and floated. Last Declan had a big water fight with Pop, Brad and Mao. He ended up drenched and cold! A hot shower at the cabin got him toasty warm again. He was so worn out he was falling asleep eating his mac n cheese!
