Well we're movin on up, to the eastside. To a deluxe apartment in the sky.

Can you find Esther in the mess? We have moved to Kirkland, and are trying to work our way through the mountains of boxes and stuff. It's an undertaking trying to unpack and organize with a toddler. She's really good at pulling stuff out of boxes but not too keen on putting things neatly away.
A new obstacle to overcome...stairs. Gene drilled into Esther's head to "scoot, scoot, scoot" down the stairs. She finds it very amusing when he demonstrates his scoot technique for her. So far so good, no head-first tumbles down the stairs yet.

This Tuesday, we got together with my roommates from college (I won't tell you how many years it's been since we were in college). All four of us girls are now married and have kids, so it was fun to have all our kids meet each other. Esther enjoyed running down the pavement at a dangerous speed. She fell twice and scrapped her forehead each time, luckily after two good cries she was good to go.

Here's a shot of the first head wound:

Getting ready to go on a boat ride on the lake:

Gene was exhausted making sure Esther didn't make a break for the water every chance she got:

Here's the four roommates and our families (only one family member is missing...and you know who you are...Chris):

On the way back home, Esther was so tired. This is how she likes to fall asleep, sucking two fingers and smelling her blankie.
