Back in New York

We are Back in New York. Coolidge and I went to Seattle In July and stayed until the 7th of August. Ben joined us on the 30 th of July and stayed through the last week. We spent 4 days at Sun lakes resort with my family. We go East of the mountains from Seattle once a year. We rent Cabins where there is a pool and a beautiful lake to swim in. The weather gets up into the 90's so it is necessary to have a place to cool off.

The weather in Seattle was absolutely beautiful. We went to the Woodland Park Zoo and Biked on the Burke Gilman Trail. This is a picture of us on the trail. I think we rode 8 miles there and 8 miles back. We stopped at the U village to get a beer and a bite to eat. The trail runs right in front of my mom's house so it is a great way to get out and exercise and see some amazing homes on lake Washington.
This is a photo of the kids in Sunlakes. I am still very new to adding photos and blogging all together so bare with me if this doesn't turn out very well.
We also enjoyed going to the zoo with my sisters Linsdy's and Christie and there kids, Kendal, Henry, Tyson and Kendal's friend Emma. I would have to say my favorite part was the butterfly exhibit because it was hands on and you surrounded by them.
It was wonderful to see my mom and have Coolidge spend some quality time with Grandma. Coolidge loved that he had so much space to run inside and out. Having a back yard with a river and a paddle boat to use everyday was quite a dream.
Now we are back home and back into our regular routine. We have been going to the central park pool and the playground quite often. We are trying to get as much summer activity in as possible because Labor day is right around the corner and soon we will be putting the sunblock away and getting our coats out of the closet.
I hope you have enjoyed my blog and will check it out to hear the news about me and my family. I plan to add all sorts of topics in the future.


  1. Way to go Andrea. I'll link your blog to mine this evening which should make it easy for family to check in on both. Hope it's hot enough for you in NY;^)

    I love your blog! A week ago I didn't know what a blog was. It's great that you get a lot of quality with your family. Washington is gorgeous, I'm like Coolidge I love the outdoors.
    We just got back from a weekend trip to Vegas. I always think of you guys when we're there.
    Enjoy the rest of your summer.
    xoxo, Court
