The weekend of my dad's birthday, August 26th-28th, we got to spend a little bit of unexpected time with my family. Alec had a soccer tournament here in Bellingham, so after his game on Friday he came and stayed the night at our house. It was a lot of fun to have him! We BBQ'd, him and Andrew built a slip'n'slide, we watched Anchorman and ate tons of popcorn, and then had pancakes for breakfast before taking him to his Saturday morning game. Here are a few pictures from the slip'n'slide adventures.
Unfortunately, it was very hot that weekend and we didn't think that we could submit Scout to sitting out in the sun in the middle of day to watch Alec's games. My parents and Emma came up to see Alec's games and in between games we were all able to meet up go out to lunch to celebrate my dad's birthday.
