50 Years

We're home! We made it back from our big Idaho trip in one piece... barely. I have way too many pictures to share, but I wanted to first post about my grandparents 50th anniversary party. Congratulations to them. We enjoyed celebrating with everyone in the family. Here are a few pictures from the event.
I love my grandma's face here
Jackson enjoyed himself
We convinced Jackson to say goodbye to the balloons. There just wasn't room in the car.

News & Pictures

First the news...
I am no longer unemployed! I got a job working for the Univeristy of Washington housing. I work in the office here at our apartment and I host events and programs in the housing community. Plus, I get to bring Jackson to work with me. It's going to be really, really fun! I've wanted the job since we moved in last summer, but this was the first opening they've had. I'm excited about being a little busier and being able to help out with all of the crazy dental school costs. I think it's going to be a lot of fun.
Now on to the cute pictures...
His thinking face
This is the "oh, hi" face. I don't know why he's sticking his belly out like that.

Beaches and Swimming Pools

This weekend we discovered a new park here in Seattle. Carkeek Park is probably one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. Gorgeous thick forest surrounding a big grass field and awesome playground, plus a great beach on the Puget Sound. We had a blast.
That evening we got Jackson's new swimming pool out and invited some of the neighbors to join us. It was a great weekend.
Today Tyler is back to work. He has 6 finals in the next 3 days (he's already had 3, so that's a total of 9 finals this quarter... wow!) and then his first year of dental school is over. I can hardly believe it. Then we are going to have a nice quiet weekend in Seattle celebrating the completion of our first year, and next week we are off to Idaho for some camping, boating, dirtbiking, and playing with grandparents. We are also going to celebrate my grandparent's 50th anniversary with a big party in Salt Lake. Yay!
