The official Bellevue July 4th celebration. There were so many people, kids actually lined up for the playground equipment.Kenny and Peter spun eachother on this piece of equipment.

The kids playing a gambling game with an app I wrote.On a hike up to Mirror Lake - this is Columbian Monkshood.

Eric takes our new neighbor on a flightWalking up Coal Creek with the kids

There was an old brick factory nearby, thus lots of unusual old bricks are in the creek.

A bike ride on a trail down in the Orting area. It was great for part of the ride, but then the trail was put right next to a busy road.

Bonus - a playground with high swings in Orting.
