non stop summer fun

fantastic summer weekend in seattle....it's monday and we are all so tired from two days of fun fun fun fun.  it just never ends!
first up-  private movie at the north bend theater for david jr!  we had the place to ourselves (that happens when you rent out the theater), and the small crowd of boys were all of david's best buddies. Indiana Jones: Temple of Doom was a lot scarier than i remember! i spent a great deal of the movie with my hands over luca's ears, and his hands over his eyes...so he'd just get a enough to know what was going on, but not too much to overwhelm him.

the party didn't stop there....after the movie we went to the park for pizza, pinata, and medieval foam sword battles.  normally i'm pretty against anything remotely close to battles, wargames, fighting, etc...but i have to admit, this was a load of fun.
after we battled for a few hours in 95 degree heat, it was off to alpental for swimming and a sleep over. the pool never felt better!
 rather than head back to hot seattle on sunday, we took the day to go hiking and swimming in denny creek (which is really more of a river!).  while we weren't the only ones on the trail by any means, we still felt a million miles away from the city. below, true tries the natural rock slide into the pool of cold water.  one brave dad stood in the current for 45 minutes, catching kids and plopping back to safe waters.
