We have had a sweet last weekend of summer break - Sebastian's first soccer games of the season, two happy kids playing sweetly together, a family library visit, a 5-mile hike in the Gorge, and ice cream at Salt and Straw. (In some respects, sadly, our summer ended with a whimper - widespread grouchiness, extensive to-do lists, a return of the lice, hot weather and a broken AC, poor Seb super sad to be at camp by himself....)
This was a complicated secret spy fort that they constructed in the garage.

Ack! Disappearing Seb!

A Sebastian selfie.
Can't decide which family photo I prefer... so I will post both for now!

She came to my office for the day so that I didn't have to make multiple car trips, which was probably a mistake on my part. The agony! She drew a picture of a mountain and a mama climbing it. I asked if it was me, and she said no - I was the tiny baby already halfway up the mountain, and Popo was the mama chasing after me. HA!!
Nina's mom Yiping very sweetly sent me photos of their adventures throughout the evening and next day. They made jiaozi - went swimming - and played played played.
