We had a fantastic time in Seattle last week! The kids and I caravaned with my sister and her fam. back to her house two Fridays ago, and stayed the week. Kyle flew in Thursday morning and we spent time sight seeing and hanging out (playing Settlers of Catan and watching the Office). We drove back Sunday night/Monday. It was great! We visited Tillicum Village, went on a Duck tour, ate on the pier, went to Pike's Place, Ballard Locks, and had a romantic double date canoeing at sunset in Lake Washington! The kids had a blast playing with their cousins and CUTTING THEIR HAIR (yes it was hilarious and awful all at the same time). Pictures are soon to come, when I get more than 2 seconds to sit down and load them all up (luckily it isn't THAT noticable). It's amazing how much work a vacation creates for me while I'm away. I'm also organizing all the great stuff I've gotten from my parents since they're moving to Oklahoma City in a week(crazy huh?). Last but not least my amazing husband worked his tail off while he was home without us and on top of putting in 10 hour days at work in the heat, he painted our master bedroom and bathroom, rearranged the furniture, replaced our bathroom light fixture, stained the cabinet/vanity thingy, redecorated, and installed a light (with a dimmer switch) over the tub/shower (my favorite part)! He's a stud! Maybe I'll slip in some pics of my new great rooms if I find the time.
