We made the trek up to Whidbey Island on Sunday for some time with Ben's family. They showered him with lots of love, great food and generous gifts! Grandma Nancy received a new digital camera for Christmas and she's been exploring her role as family photographer. Since we left our camera at home, we asked Grandma Nancy to email us a few shots. The one above is the first of many...impressive work, huh?
It was nice to visit with Don, Suzy, Grandma Ethel, Grandpa Carl, Uncle Kenon, Aunt Sherri, Cousin Brandon, Cousin Carly and Grandma Nancy (Cousin Taylor was at home - he was feeling pretty nasty).
We're tentatively planning a Simmons family trip to Seattle. We did this right after Christmas - we met at Cousin Luke's apartment, played some games, walked around the city, checked out the Gingerbread Houses, and enjoyed a nice dinner out. This time around, we're hoping to check out the Seattle Art Museum to catch a glimpse of some Roman Art from the Louvre!
