Softball Game

This weekend, I was drafted onto the softball team which I'm not sure was helpful or a hindrance! I did score one run, so I guess I did my part! Kylie was dying to get in the game, but got a little practice playing catch with Autumn and some of the kids.

 Practicing with mom in her cow-GIRL boots!

Batter up!

Swim Time!

Autumn is off on a business trip already, so Kylie and I were left to our own devices today. We went into town, read in the hammock, swam and explored the reef a little bit. Tonight before bed, Kylie pointed out the "first star" tonight, which was really Jupiter hanging over a crescent moon. Sorry you missed out on the fun Autumn!

Guess who can swim on her own now, with her lil' puddle jumper.

Ahhh...time to relax!

Peek-a-boo ...eel?

Later Autumn! Have a good flight!

Hi little guy!

Rongrong Island is Right-Right!

Kylie and I got to tag along on Autumn's visit out to a school on Rongrong island today! While she worked, we got to check out the local livestock, run around, read and play. After her meeting was over, we had a picnic, swam and snorkeled before boarding the boat back home.

On the road!

Beware of falling coconuts!

Anchors aweigh!

Leaving Majuro....

...for a three hour tour!

Safety first!

Welcome to Rongrong!

 This is the school we visited

This little piggie ate a coconut!

Three little pigs!

Beautiful day for a boat ride!

Everywhere we looked, we kept saying, "This looks just like a postcard!"

 Time for fun!

Calm before the storm

Is this what mom does at work every day?

Yes! Let's tag along every day!

Just 5,000 miles that way to Spokane!

A storm's a brewin'!

We don't have a ton of weeknight activities yet, so we've been spending quality time together around the house and enjoying the spectacular sunsets each evening after Autumn gets home from work. 

I think these are Autumn's top three photos from the week!

And here's what we've been doing!


 Collecting shells

 Being cute!

 Oops! One more good one!
