washington ballance reunion

well, we went to visit meemaw and papa b(allance) for the first time since the missouri move. when we got to the ballance house, the first thing we noticed was that sophia loved the deer shoulder mount in the living room. we spent a lot of time looking at that deer. it was pretty funny.

we started the week off at leavenworth, wa hanging out with friends and family. it's a small bavarian town with lots of shops and walking around. sophia impressed everyone with her eating skills! on the way back to grandma and grandpa's house, we stopped by her cousin's. it was the first time they had really played together and it was fun to watch.

we did all sorts of fun stuff while we were in colville. we went to the hippie store and got stuff to make homemade mozzarella cheese. delicious! we went to canada (sophia's first international trip) and walked around rossland. there are lots of shops and good things to eat there. we saw good friends and played in the yard. it was very relaxing a TON of fun.

despite some flight troubles, sophia was no trouble on the flight so we are ready for more traveling!

  1. Yesterday Oliver told me he misses Blueberry and wants to move back to Montana. He thinks you guys still live there. So . . . Sophia is already an international traveler. Any news on Germany?
