I’ve been taking the bus since mid July and this was the first time I’ve had to deal with rain. That’s almost 3 months of no rain before or after work, in Seattle. I was begining to think that the “rainy city” was a myth concocted by the folks who live here to keep everyone … Continue reading »

An evening on Capitol Hill

Last night we met with Marie’s mom and sister (Carrie and Amanda), her great aunt and uncle (Marian and Karl) and their daughter and her son (Sally and Sam). While on Capitol Hill we stumbled upon some folks playing Bicycle Polo on a tennis court at Cal Anderson Park (picture above). It’s pretty crazy to watch … Continue reading »

Emerald Downs

On Saturday Amanda, Marie and I went to Emerald Downs. Carrie had some free passes from work, but couldn’t go because she had to work (lame right?). It was a ton of fun watching the races, and we even did a bit of gambling and bet on our favorite horses. We had beautiful weather and the … Continue reading »

Three weeks later

The picture to the left is Drumheller Fountain. It’s right outside Mary Gates Hall (the building I work in) and on a clear day like today, you can see Mount Rainier in the distance.

Been so busy

Marie and I have been so busy. Between all the excitement at my new job and moving into our apartment we haven’t had much time to spend online. But worry not! We setup our router, we’re online and we’ll be posting some pictures of the new apartment and stories of our happenings soon.

Marie drove me down so I wouldn’t have to pay for parking ($15/day without having assign/prepaid parking). My office is in Mary Gates Hall (previously the physics building for those who were wondering what building … Continue reading »

We finally made it! We’re at Lake Roseiger stay at Marie’s grandparent’s cabin at the lake. We’re totally roughing it until this weekend then we’ll be staying with Uncle Eric until our apartment is ready on the 14th.

Night three – Butte Montana

So as the price of hotel rooms goes up apparently the quality goes down. This is our third Comfort Inn and the first one (in Albert Lea MN) was awesome. Nice and newish, clean, super friendly staff, and awesome shower. Second one (Gillette WY) was OK, but staff was less friendly and the breakfast quality … Continue reading »

Night two – Gillette Wyoming

Today was eventful. We woke up in Minnesota and enjoyed the tasty homemade waffles at the Comfort Inn continental breakfast. Then we fueled up and hit the road. Before we knew it we were in South Dakota. Marie already posted about the world’s only corn palace and the famous Wall Drug, but she didn’t post … Continue reading »
