Brief Update

Stef & Jonathan spent several days with us last week. We enjoyed having them immensely, and are already looking forward to a return visit.

We all went to my weekly coffee group for some good coffee and good conversation. Stef did a wonderful job keeping Kendra entertained. She and Jonathan had her dancing and working her arms and legs like crazy - she LOVED it!

We wandered around Lake Washington on a beautiful PacNW day, and ended up at the Taco Bus, thereby making Jonathan's visit complete on the second day.

We also decided to take the Underground Tour. It was really cool! I highly recommend it if you are ever in our neck of the woods. It starts in Pioneer Square, which is the oldest section of the city. Considering how young Seattle is (founded in 1851) there is quite a bit of interesting history here. This was quite the rough town, although they had more "seamstresses" than most other cities. ("Seamstresses" were also some of the wealthiest people in town. What they paid in taxes provided 87% of the city's operating budget! If you can't shut it down, tax it!)

And here is an example of a passed out little girl. She had a rough week! Actually, she passes out like this on a nightly basis - usually after her evening meal. It's so cute! If she is startled by a loud noise she throws her hands out with her fingers extended - jazz hands! I have a future dancer on my hands! :)

Things here are good. I have mastitis - again - but otherwise things are fine. Dad arrives in town on Wednesday for a week. So when are the rest of you coming to visit??
