I haven’t blogged in a while. Partly, because we were out-of-town and I suddenly felt very self-conscious about telling the world our house was unoccupied.
We just got back from a 12 day trip to the Northwest. We had a great time with my parents, brother & sis-in-law, and had the joy of meeting up with several of my friends.
Here are some of the things we did:
*visited Mt. Rainier (69 degrees, sunshine and 20 feet of snow)
*Olympic National Park
*Point Refinance, Chambers Bay
*Seattle (Safeco, M’s game & underground tour)
*Ferry ride into Seattle at night
*played 2 games of Settlers (one game had 6 people, my brother came in last place with 8 points, four of us had 9, and the winner got to 10 first!)
*learned a new game “Dominion” which we really enjoyed and will probably be purchasing
*had a Memorial day BBQ
*Went to the Tacoma Glass Museum, Tacoma Art Museum, and WA State history museum
*ate at the new Ivars in Puyallup
It was a jam-packed trip – but we also had a couple of days to lay low, enjoy the cloudy, drizzly weather and sleep in.
