Volunteer Park Conservatory

The last two days have been really nice, sunny days with temperatures in the 70’s. Today, however, Margaret and Donna got to experience a cool, wet Seattle day.

Nick and I spent the morning taking a load of boxes over to the house and setting up some things there. It’s really starting to feel like home. 😀 We hung out with Margaret and Donna at the apartment afterward and then we went to the Volunteer Park Conservatory on Capitol Hill. I’m really glad we went because all the plants and flowers were gorgeous. Even the building itself was beautiful, made of glass with a wood and iron framework. I took tons of pictures, but it’ll be a little while before I upload them because I have to go through them all. We also walked over to Volunteer Park’s koi pond and Black Sun sculpture, but we didn’t stay long because of the rain. When we got back to the apartment, Margaret taught me how to crochet. Maybe sometime soon I’ll be able to do some fun crochet projects! 😉

Nick’s Burrito Macho

We went to Sonrisa Modern Mexican at U Village for dinner. It wasn’t busy when we got there, probably because of the rain and we were there for an early dinner. The salsa that came with our chips was delicious and made in-house. We ordered a primo combo (three different enchiladas), baked chile relleno, burrito macho, and ancho rubbed chicken quesadillas. Everything was fantastic and Nick and I would definitely go back there again.

Margaret and Donna start their scenic drive back home early tomorrow morning. They plan on stopping in Salt Lake City and Jackson Hole to see the Grand Tetons. We said our goodbyes after dinner and gave them both big hugs. Can’t wait to see them again!

Nick and I took another car full of boxes over to the house tonight and we’ll spend tomorrow packing up what’s left and moving more boxes. We’ll probably only have furniture left by the time we do the big move on Sunday afternoon. Hurrah!
