july part 2.

This past weekend, we took our little family to a Tears for Fears concert. Oh, what fun we had. Since my brother and his family lives over thata way, we were able to stay with them. He has 4 girls. I have 2 and Hattie is an Eggleston cousin...that is a lot of girls. We outnumbered the boys by lots. All these girls did all weekend was read books.

The concert was AWESOME! but we couldn't bring a camera in, or they would have taken it away...no thanks, not worth it. It was outside at a Winery in Woodinville. The weather was perfect, which was suprising for that side of the state, but I guess they have had a really dry June. Spokane is actually greener right now...anywho...We layed out a big blanket and brought a picnic dinner. We watched everone get drunk around us, which was entertaining in itself. Matt sang every word of every song. Brinley knew about half the words, but recognized every song. We grew up with Tears For Fears, so why shouldn't our girls. I bought t-shirts for Matt, Brinley and I. Brinley will have to grow into hers, but it works great as a night shirt for now.

Saturday we drove the North Cascade Highway. GORGEOUS!
We stopped and got ice cream before the long drive...

Brinley enjoyed hers.
This is Diablo Lake. I want to camp here. It was beautiful.
This was the river coming after one of the dams. I think there are at least 3 in on the drive. The water was a turquiose green/blue color. It was really beautiful.
Gorgeous mountains. I love this place. I want to live there.
