4th of July Weekend in Steilacoom, WA

For the 4th of July, we headed up to Steilacoom, WA to visit Dusty's older brother, Cory. Cory and his wife Brooke just had a baby and he's being deployed to Afghanistan next week, so we went up to bless the baby and say goodbye. We had a lot of family time and fun. On the 4th we went to the city festival and parade and it was by far my favorite part of the weekend. Carma loved watching the parade!

And ate TONS of candy!

And Dusty got especially excited when the firetrucks drove by. He's such a fire nerd!

On one of the days we rented a boat to go fishing and crabbing in (we didn't catch any fish but we did catch one crab). Carma loved her lifejacket just long enough for me to get some pictures but then cried the rest of the time. Oh, and notice Dusty's Mohawk his brother gave him.

(I really, really liked it but he got rid of it once we came home.)

This is the whole Jenkins' Family. We're lucky to have each other to take fun trips with!
