Saturday sun

I can't believe it is the last weekend before school starts. The weather was beautiful so we headed down to olympia to try out the Penrod's new sunflower sail boat. I have been sailing for a lot of years with my dad but his boats are always too big and scary for me to sail myself. I was surprised at how fun it was to be the captain (you might notice by the picture that there was not a lot of wind that day - we did get a few gusts and Ian was terrified that I was going to flip us over).

Jamesy and the rest of the group stayed on the beach and played in the sand while the "sailors" took turns.

Then we headed to the Voellger's house for an end of summer BBQ. They have an amazing backyard and my kids are already asking when we can go back.

Ian getting on the zip line.

13 kids in the hot tub - I think it was a record.

How fun! That is a ridiculous amount of kids in that hot tub... at least they can't jump in or anything crazy with that many!

Aw that looks like fun Ame! Especially you and Ian sailing. I can't wait to see the back to school "first day" pics!
