Grandma & Papa Weekend

10 03 2015

We had a fun weekend with Grandma & Papa in town. Lots of playing, reading, walks outside and our annual visit to the Seattle Dog Show. We’re looking forward to seeing them again in 2 weeks!

Boat to Bainbridge

5 03 2015

Sunday proved to be another nice winter day in Seattle, so we planned a trip over to Bainbridge Island. Emily & Luke love riding on the ferry and seeing all of the sites of Seattle and surrounding areas. Once on Bainbridge, we drove over to Battle Point Park where the kids were in heaven with all of the toys and massive play structures. Luke did a good job climbing up a tower ladder, but he was pretty fixated on the hand operated playground digger. Emily is able to explore and use almost all of the toys – tightrope, net ladders, rock climbing, and slides. We didn’t get to spend as much time at the park as the kids wanted and Luke in particular was not happy to be leaving the digger behind. We grabbed sandwiches at Hitchcock Deli by the ferry and headed back to Seattle and enjoyed great views along the way.

Running, Jumping & Throwing Huskies

2 03 2015

We went to the UW indoor track meet on Saturday with our good friends Angie, Kate & Nancy. The kids had fun watching the shot put, triple jump, high jump and pole vault. Luke almost disrupted the 60m hurdles, but thankfully was yanked back before doing any damage:)

Rite of Passage

2 03 2015

Our house went through a rite of passage (hopefully a 1 time thing!) last week when we managed to get lice. It still makes me nauseous to think about it…yuck, yuck, yuck. Emily & I were the unlucky ones, while Dave, Luke & their short hair were safe.

Thankfully there are places (Lice Knowing You) that you can go to that will confirm that you have it and perform the removal. 2.5 hours & $375 later Emily & I were lice free. Not something we hope to repeat anytime soon.
