Veterans Day

I hope you all enjoyed your Veterans Day holiday yesterday! Nick had the day off, so we had planned on going to The Museum of Flight with Dad and Amanda. It’s the largest private air and space museum in the world and it’s located right next to Boeing Field. The problem was that the museum’s … Continue reading »

Big Four Ice Caves

Nick and I had a mini vacation over the weekend at my grandparents’ beautiful log cabin about an hour away. The cabin is on a lake and it’s quiet and pretty isolated; Nick and I don’t even get phone service up there, so we were off the grid all weekend. We invited Amanda and our … Continue reading »

Meadowbrook Pond & Homemade Pizza

Hi, everybody! Sorry it’s been so long since Nick and I blogged last. We’ve settled in at home and haven’t really had anything blog-worthy to talk about lately. We’re both very happy and doing well, though! 😀 The weather was beautiful yesterday (sunny and cloudless, temperature in the mid 50’s), so we went for a walk … Continue reading »

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 »

We Got a New Camera

Marie and I have been without a nice camera for a while and although our phones have been great for taking snapshots here and there, we’ve been wanting to get a nicer bit of hardware so we can really take some great shots. So we finally decided that we should get ourselves an entry level … Continue reading »

Ivar’s + Gas Works Park

The weather was so nice today (it got above 60º after all) that I decided to pick up Nick from work and do something outside. We went to Ivar’s for fish and chips and clam chowder. A friendly (and hungry!) duck came up to us as we were eating and stared straight at me. She’d cock … Continue reading »

Pancreatic Cancer Walk

On Sunday morning, Grandma and some of her friends (one of whom is a pancreatic cancer survivor) participated in PurpleStride Puget Sound, a fundraiser walk to support the fight against pancreatic cancer. It was located at Magnuson Park (right across the street from us), so Nick and I walked down to the park to cheer … Continue reading »

Alki Beach Park

Since we have so many blueberries, I decided that it was time to do something with them! What a brilliant idea, huh? 😛 I always make blueberry muffins with mix from a box, so yesterday was my first time making blueberry muffins from scratch. I used a recipe I found online for “To Die for … Continue reading »

Seahurst Park

Martha Sue, Jim, Mom, Nick, and I removed another post-it note when we visited Seahurst Park Friday evening. Mom and Amanda had visited Seahurst Park for the first time on Sunday and loved it, so Mom was excited to take us there. Because we went there in the evening, though, we weren’t able to see the Olympic … Continue reading »

Yesterday, we (Martha Sue, Jim, Mom, Amanda, and I) started the day by going to Saint … Continue reading »
