Since we moved to Seattle, we met a great group of families with boys Cole and Wilson's same age. This weekend after my race, we met up in Roslyn (home of Twin Peaks) for an annual family get away. We had 6 famlies all of whom had 6 year old boys and a couple younger kids and babies. Needless to say, the house was nutty with kid energy, grown up on vacation energy, and pure happiness of being with great people.
The house location was perfect with good streets for bike riding (except Cole and Wilson managed to find some steep hills to go bombing down), a pool and hot tub, and a big back yard for wrestling and light saber wars. There was also a playground within walking distance that was perfect for Ninja Warrior.
Besides all the kid fun, the grown ups had a blast cooking great meals together (we all like good food which was great), talking about work, travels, and nothing at all, and lounging around the house in PJs just enjoying being together. Yes, there was a good share of meltdowns (seriously, picture all those kids with little sleep and tons of fun). We can't wait to do it again next year!
