We spent a week "back home" in Salem, OR this past August. It ended up being a special and monumental week to be in Salem as the total eclipse just happened to be taking place! The week seemed to serve as a final summer hurrah of sorts. Andrew had been working pretty crazy hours most of the summer and I knew that this trip marked the end of that and the start of a better many months ahead.
Bonnie and Abram had a blast with their cousins: Cora, Isaac, and Eliza. It is always so special to see them together. Months pass between our visits which means that each time we all get together, there's always something new to share and enjoy. It's also safe to say that our kiddos are still catching up on sleep from the week (it's been 2 weeks since we've been back!). They played hard!
Pictured below are some highlights from the first half of the week:
