Liz In Washington...
Spending my time in Washington with my other family members...enjoying some clean mountain air and time with my nephews, niece, sister, brothers and extended family I haven't seen in way too long.
The lake will always hold special place in my heart with my family...they know how to have a good time!
Mom and Me
My sister set the weekend up for all of us... she reserved the best spot. By the end of the weekend we had 6 or 7 tents, a cabin, a cot in a van and a motor home all belonging to our group!
Mom, my sister Chris and I slept in the cabin..spoiled! You can see Toto and Jack sitting in the window!

Love my Family!
It's always hard to leave the lake, but hopefully make it back there some other year. We headed to Chris and Tami's house to relax for a few hours before heading home to my moms.
Me and Shaun (Jeremy's girlfriend)
Jeremy and Me...OMG he's hysterical
Famous Face of Jeremy!
My mom (step mom Linda) and I got to spend mornings having coffee out back enjoying the beautiful weather and flowers in her garden. We shopped, ate, drank, watched a good show, walked and just had a blast!
Our Coffee Hangout
Lunch by the water
Day trip to Leavenworth...
Leavenworth, WALunch was a bit chilly outside, but the views were lovely. I got my veggie dog and mom got her beer and bratwurst.
Back to the house...garden is wonderful!
Her Babies... Toto and Jack
Time for a walk down the street from her house...
I love my sister! Chris is always making me laugh...why? Just thinking of her brings a smile to my face...I think it's bc I know she loves me! Got to spend time at her new home with her girlfriend Tami, the boys, her dogs, her goats...what more could you ask for.
A drink before I go

Off to Atlanta June 5-7
Chloe played with her middle school club team in the Southern Alliance Tournament in Peachtree City, Georgia. Day 1 they took all 3 teams down and won! She played like a champion getting most of all the points for that day. Super proud of her.
Day 2 on the other hand we ended up loosing the very first game and that meant we get to go home! Bummer, but a fun weekend regardless! Girls had great attitudes and had fun!
Fathers Day Invitational Lacrosse Tournament
June 13th and 14th
Both Scott's high school team and Chloe's middle school teams competed in this weekends event. It was nice to be at the same place and enjoy each others games. Long hot days, but worth it!
Team Beast did amazing and ended up going into the championship playoffs! Outstanding for this group of young ladies some very new and some very young. They lost by one point in the championship. Extremely proud Coaches.
Chloe's team also went all the way. They were undefeated into the championship playoffs... they lost by 2 goals. They played their hearts out and were so tired. Chloe didn't miss a second of the games she was in the entire time. Needless to say she didn't get out of bed the next day her legs were wobbling! 6 games in 2 days in 90 degree temps...way to go!
Between Game Shenanigans!
Isaac's Summer Basketball Game 1
Thursday June 18th ~ lost
No pictures. We enjoyed many of the summer season games without a camera in our face.

Isaac's Summer Basketball Game 2
Friday June 26th ~ Won
Coach John couldn't make it to the game so Isaac offered Scott up as a sacrifice! What a great dad... he did it. The boys didn't listen to him much (if at all), but he did try and help them. At half they were loosing by 1 point...they ended up pulling it off in the end and winning! Had to be the coaching!
Go Goldie Locks
Chloe ..ball head

One Love Tournament 7vs7
June 27th and 28th
Chloe's middle school club team wasn't going to be competing in this tournament so she was able to join Scott's team for the weekend! The Beast team took 3 separate teams to compete. All the teams had a blast!
It was such a great time to see all these girls playing together again and Chloe getting challenged to play with the high school girls was awesome! She exceeded our expectations by far!
LOVE CHLOE'S FACE IN THESE...Beast Mode
Rollin' the Cage
I love watching her play!
Coach with HIS little Beast
SundayThis girl guarding Chloe was over 6ft tall...we asked Chloe later was she intimidated by the size of the girls? Her answer "No, I just play my game I don't notice if they are bigger than me"
She shoots She scores!
