Tonight we also did some swimming thanks to the invite from the Doerrs to go to the pool. It was a great night hanging out, staying cool and watching Maddie do her first jumps off the diving boards!! Here are a couple videos of the action. You can also see how she has come aloing with her swimming. She did great! Of course, little sister now wants to go off the diving board too :-)

Seriously, we hit the xxx rootbeer drive in issaquah last night. Here
is a pic of giant root beer float we shared. They also had a huge
gumball machine that the girls loved. We also got to sit through the
heaviest rainstorm we have had in a long long time. Probably about 20
min of pounding rain.

Last updates were around the parade, but it has been a busy few weeks since parade weekend. We have had visits from Great Grandma Cattau and Stacey and Haas (will post pictures later) where we spent some time at the cabin.
Our inconsistent weather still lingers....It has been pretty average, but we occasionally get up into the high 80's or even 90. That temp around here just doesn't work well with no AC. Luckily we have a built in AC unit called "The Basement" last night we all slept in the basement to keep cool.
We did the school supply run last night. Maddie is getting ready for 2nd grade and Kenzie into PreSchool-3. KK is excited, asking daily if she is going to school. Speaking of school, the construction is coming along, maybe a bit slower then we would all like, but it will be ready....it will be ready...everyone say it....it will be ready!!
Finally, we had a little shake up in the family car situation. Last week we traded in the "SS Jensen" - as my co-workers call it, for a new Chrysler Pacifica. The SS was getting up there and with every repair is was getting more expensive....not to mention the $100+ to fill up the tank with gas. This is a bit smaller for us, but we bought a Thule Topper (or a Rocket Box like some friends call it) that will hold all our "stuff" when we go on a trip.
That's all for now...
