Last Month we went to Westport, WA on the Pacific Ocean to catch crab. Weird weather all day, sun would be out for a little while, then it would downpour rain. We had a sucessful trip anyway, as you can see from the pictures.

Here's a gull checking out our ropes

The Ferry Ride

I forgot to post about the Ferry ride we took when my mom, Kelly, and Cooper came to the West side to visit! It was fun, ferry rides seem to alwasy be fun, Cooper loved it! Plus it was a beautiful day!

I thought this was a really cute picture of Cooper with Dad. They are so much alike in so many ways!

Here they are again!

Mom joined us outside for about 1 minute to take this picture...

Mike and I enjoying the sunshine!

This was actually from the day before at the zoo, but I didn't have space in my previous blog. Aren't the flamingos extraordinary! I think they are very beautiful!

4th of July Barnum Reunion

This 4th of July we spent near Walla Walla, Washington with the Barnums (My mom's side of the fam) for our Reunion. Not everyone was able to be there, but we had a good time just the same. Ashley was even able to come even though she had just hurt her ankle (again). She was holed up in a cabin with her wheelchair, cast and painkillers for most of the weekend, but I think she still enjoyed at least seeing everyone. (I promised not to post any pics of her at that time because she was so under the weather) Cooper loved playing with all of his little cousins and was running all over the place. I got to go midnight fishing with Mike, which was actually kind of creepy because there were hundreds of little bats swooping all over the lake to eat the bugs. I swear one of them almost flew right into my face! I caught the only fish by the way. hehe. Grandpa Barnum wasnt able to travel because of his health, but we thought about him a lot while we were there. We wrote him a thank you letter because he is the one who keeps funding these crazy family get togethers! I realize that I didn't take very many pictures but here are a few funny ones...

Cooper is posing for the camera...Mike is not.

Mike is looking hungry! I hope they serve us soon!

Cooper..."Do I have something on my face?"

I though this sign that some one wrote up in the women's room was hilarious! Notice the replica of Munch's "The Scream"!

Me waiting patiently for sissy, You don't realize how difficult handicap accessible restrooms really are until you have to use them as a handicap!
