I was kinda bummed when I realized that we don't have the $$$ to take a summer vaction of any kind this year... so you can imagine how excited I was when I read my friend Becky's blog!
She and her family are headed on a 16 state adventure this summer and her girls were afraid of missing out on summer fun at home with friends. So, Becky's leaving a "flat" version of her girls at home with friends so they won't miss out on anything.
Then in exchange, Becky generously offered to take along other people on their trip! (Well... a flat version of them at least!) So, Sadie and Allison jumped at the chance to "Hang with the Hofwegens" on their major road trip. (Grant wasn't interested... all he wants to do these days is ride on Dad and Grandpa's four wheelers.)
I made a "Flat Sadie and Flat Allison" and we said goodbye to them this afternoon. They've been mailed to Lynden and then will leave on the road trip July 2. Keep up on Becky's blog to follow where the Hofwegens, our girls and other stowaways will be this summer!
(And Beck... while the girls are with you in Lynden they'd love to say hello to friends or family there. They haven't given Grandma Sue a hug since Christmas! THANKS for taking them along! Just be sure to slather them up with sunscreen frequently and get them to bed before 10 pm or they'll be cranky the next day! :)

Seriously. The snowflakes coming down this morning around 6:30 am were just hilarious... ha ha ha. So, I thought, they'll be gone in a few minutes.
Nope. On June 10th, Pullman got SNOW. A lot of it, really. It came down hard through the noon hour. And so my kids got to make a snowman. On June 10th.
It's supposed to be sunny and 74 degrees on Friday. THANK GOODNESS!!!
And hopefully you won't see anymore photos of my kids in snow until next November. Seriously.
