Anacortes-one year later

I realized in looking at pictures from our wonderful trip to Anacortes that we had many pictures of the family in the exact same places as last year and we were there in August both years…I thought it would be fun to post them together.  So much changes in a year!

…this year in the kitchen with family visiting from Africa!



Can’t believe how much they’ve all changed. I realized as I was looking at my pics that we forgot to pose the babies together on the couch this year. Hard to get a shot with both of them holding still these days!

Good job Kris Lynn. What a delight to see the pictures of what a difference a year makes.


So cute!


Love it! What a fun post!


That’ awesome! Family vacations are the best! Looks like many changes since last year

Oh my, those pictures are each worth a thousand words! I especially like the contrast of 3 kids to 4 kids in the tub. It shows how his blessing in your family keeps growing!
