{The BEST}

Wiggles the Fish busting a move on stage in Everett, Washington - August 14, 2008
Silver Lake Park - Acoustic guitar: Tory Christensen, Mandolin: Kaleb Christensen
(Special thanks to the parents and children who joined us for a very fun and beautiful show at the park!) There must have been 250 + kids there - Way to Wiggle Everett!
My kids and I went to Wenatchee a day before the Wiggle show to visit my cousin, Conley and his wife and children! It was so fun to hang out and enjoy the day together ... Thanks guys!
(Tory was attending an education conference so we met up at my cousin's house!)

En route to the concert, we made a visit to one of my favorite towns - Leavenworth!
It is gorgeous in the summer, winter or fall ... and so romantic.
Photo moment: The kids and I in their favorite shop. We each posed with a fuzzy critter.
I have a turtle...

An old vintage car in Snohomish, Washington. After the show, we stopped in this town for lunch and to check out all the antique shops ...

I ended up talking to the owner of this gorgeous vehicle and he said there are only FIVE left in the world. Apparently, this car was the first Jaguar before it became Jaguar - no wonder I loved it. :) He had just picked this one up in Bellevue Washington a couple of weeks ago. It was a beautiful car!! I wanted to say, "Can I take her for a ride?" :)

"I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best."
- Oscar Wilde

That quote seems appropriate for how I feel about the past week - it was the best! :)
Cheers to summer, concerts in the park, family and vintage cars from the past!

Yeah for Wiggles the fish! What a fabulous turnout. We're still crossing our fingers that there will be a concert in Idaho sometime in the future!

ps. Uncle Ralph would love those cars...

Kylene, HI! I think Uncle Ralph would love to add a car like the one I posted to his collection :)-- We would love to do a wiggle show in Idaho (I'll keep you posted)!!
