Summertime in the NW

So many things to do, so little time. Washington has a plethora of fun day trips, and we mostly just have the weekends to experience as many as possible before rainy season comes our way. The other week, the Mardock gang (Mardocks / Steeles / Ratzlaffs) descended upon Whidbey Island for a weekend at Camp Casey. A few decades ago, the US military sold off Camp Casey to the highest bidder - Seattle Pacific University. As an administrator at SPU, Rob's uncle reserved a weekend in the swanky "Colonel's House" for a reunion.

The other main event of the summer was Andy and Joanne's wedding and move. We had a great time saying "welcome to the family" and "don't let the door hit you on the way off to Tampa" all within the same month. The Bellamy clan (Woods / Mardocks / Bellamys / Forbes) celebrated their departure at Chris and Jeanne's place where once again, Jeanne created some Sunset Magazine-worthy deserts.

Hey I haven't been keeping up on your blog either.... It was an excellent summer - We're so glad you guys moved back up to the NW!
Bummer we had to move away.

Those are some nice pics! Keep 'em coming!

BTW - Dessert is spelled with two S's, cause you always want more!

Time to read about Subprime meltdowns!
