Family, isn't it about time? ha ha

(the title is from the latter day saints commercial on TV.) Anyway, here's what we've been up to lately...
The cousins love playing together! They get along really well!

The kids enjoyed their time with auntie Christy.

And their friends.

To celebrate Katie & William's 10th anniversary, we took them to Seattle. We left all the kids with the grandparents. They said they wanted to spend time with us instead of being alone, so we took them on our traditional date to the Cheesecake Factory in Bellevue, where we had much delicious food. The next day Matthew had an Alaska Airlines meeting, so Katie, William, and I spent the day shopping. They helped me look for a dining table set and a van, then they shopped and spent time at Borders bookstore. Not exactly the most romantic of anniversaries, but they said they had fun!

Well, we were supposed to come home that night, but the flight was full, so Katie & I stayed behind, and spent the night with Christy. We planned to get on the first flight home which started out late due to a mechanical problem. Finally we left, but about 20 minutes into the flight the pilot said they had "something abnormal" happen when they raised the landing gear, so we would have to turn back to Seattle...but don't worry it would be a normal landing. I was just hoping "something abnormal" wouldn't happen when they lowered the gear! Anyway we landed fine, and an hour later left on another plane. It turned out that it was just a circuit board problem which set off some alarms, but nothing was ever really wrong. So that was our little adventure.

Thanks for the posting the pics. I was really hoping to be able to get up to Ketchikan around this time and see Will, Katie and family as well, but, alas, twas not to be. The pictures let me see what I am missing! ;)
