The Drollingers

After visiting with the Light/Higgin crew, Maddie and I stayed with the Drollinger family for four nights. Besides the kids getting a little sick, we had a blast together. Rachel and I have been friends since the days of Master's College (past 10 years just about!). I am always thankful for her dear friendship. Little Sierra and Madison seem to be getting off to a great start in their friendship- they really became great buddies over these few days. I had no idea that nine month olds were so social! As you will see in the pictures, the girls were inseparable. Thank you John and Rachel for such a wonderful trip- you were so generous, kind, and fun to be with!

The cute family- John, Rachel, Drew, and Sierra.
Andrew being Andrew! I love this boy.
The girls decided to make dinner for us one night!
Story time! 
Rachel got the girlies these cute matching outfits. We went out for a walk at the park- what a beautiful place!
The crew!
They loved talking at the coffee table...
Here they are helping John fix the table.
One day we drove to North Bend- what an adorable little town. Here's the beautiful Snoqualmie Falls.

Can you believe the size of these donuts?!
This bakery has been there since the 1920's! We even got a tour of the kitchen. Here is Andrew taking a peek into the big oven.
Sierra and Madison even needed a diaper change at the same time!
The girls helped Andrew with his chores- bringing in the milk. The Drollingers actually get milk delivered to their house!

It takes two to play the guitar when you're nine months!
Another matching outfit. I think Madison is stealing Sierra's bottle here!
It's looks like they are having an argument, but believe me, they are just having fun!
What good helpers.
We miss you!

So, I have to say I'm SO BITTER (and trying hard not to be). We live in NORTH BEND... yes, just 10 min. from Snoqualmie Falls and I was just in George's Bakery this morning (it's a 10 min. walk from my house). Emily (Howe) Selph is here and says "hi" too (they live in Western Washington - Bremerton). Anyhow, NEXT TIME you'd better tell us you're in town. Miss you guys! Meg (from Jeremy & Connor Putman as well).
