This past week, Megs and I took a mid-week trip out to my Grandpa's condo at Wapato Point - just us and our kids and it was pretty perfect. We met in Ellensburg, loaded up my car and got to Chelan around 2pm. My parents had been there for the weekend with some friends so they stuck around and hung out with us for a couple of hours. Since Raleigh's arrival, they'll do just about anything to spend some time with their grandbabe.
We had a couple of firsts on this trip...Raleigh, Ava and Miles first time to Chelan and a first of rain. In all of the years that I've been going to Chelan, I don't ever remember it raining. Even with the rain (rain is meant to stay on the west side of the state), we made the best of it...took the kids for a drive, they immediately passed out, found a liquor store, bought a fifth of tequila, got corndogs at the the drive-thru, played a couple of games of Rummikub and drank Megs favorite margarita (equal parts limeade, beer and tequila blended together and poured over ice - Deeeelish!)
As you can see from the photos we had a pretty amazing time. Besides for lounging in sun, I think Raleigh's favorite part was the special attention he received from his Bend besties...especially Ava. I look forward to the day that we can take Raleigh to Chelan when he can run around and play in the pool and at the beach.
