post soccer workout

a nice dip at the view ridge pool!  the kids love when they are invited to the pool after soccer, and it's hard to take them away when its time to go home.  this is the stuff summer memories are made of!

soccer camp

both boys are in sounders soccer camp this week!  luca is especially excited, as he is sporting his first pair of real soccer cleats, his very own, not even hand-me-downs.  he is so proud that he told me he would clean them off every night.  it was such a touching moment.....

downtown library

my kids adore the library, and the grandparents are happy to comply with library outing requests.  although we have a city library just one block away, the grands like to take the kids to different branches for variety (plus seattle has recently completed remods on several locations, which makes for extra fun book finding).
grandma's request this trip was to hit the downtown library....truly an interesting space with a forward color palette!

finn b

true has been missing his school buddies big time.  he begged for a play date with his friend, finn b.  the grandparents (staying with us to help with kid care for a few weeks) were happy to comply....and the big day of finn b happened!
first up: legos!  then the zoo.  then legos!  then dick's burgers and french fries and more legos!  then off to the bmx park, and back home for a sprinkler session in the back yard. somewhere in there they managed to squeeze in a trip to Molly Moon's. finn's mom sent me a text to let us know that the next time the grandparents are in town, finn requests to stay an entire week with the erbecks.

Summer Vacation '14 part II

TAHOE!  we have lots of activities in tahoe...biking (tons), swimming (tons), hiking, kayaking, eating ice cream.  this year we added a few new sports: putt putt golf and river rafting!  never a dull moment in tahoe, we never sit still (unless we are napping on the porch swing or laying in the sunshine).

grammy shows the boys how it's done

the kids spend a lot of time squirting other rafters on the river

aaron managed to do the donner climb multiple times.  awesome climb, great views
