Curling & Pinball

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. … Continue reading »

The Burke Museum

On Thursday, we took advantage of free museum Thursday and went to The Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture, which is on the University of Washington campus.
