It’s only 5 miles from home and, if nothing else, it’s a good excuse to go for a walk and practice photography. Nick and I went to the zoo over the weekend. It was kind of a gloomy day (not … Continue reading »

There was a shooting at my cousin’s school, but thankfully he’s okay. Yesterday, there was a big windstorm in Western Washington with 50 mph winds. Nick and I lost power, but … Continue reading »

Curling & Pinball

Curling My family has found curling fascinating since, I think, the Winter Olympics in 2002. When I found out there was a curling club just down the road from us that offered open houses where they teach you the basics of curling, I got super excited and Nick’s mom’s visit was the perfect opportunity to … Continue reading »

A Post About Moms

Marie’s Mom A couple months ago, Mom found out she had a gigantic cyst on her liver. Although the cyst was benign, its massive size was causing problems for Mom, so she had surgery at the beginning of the month to remove it. The surgery went well (although the tumor had wreaked more havoc than anticipated, making the surgery … Continue reading »

We had spent the afternoon with … Continue reading »

End of July Update

Here’s what we’ve been up to over the last week: Woodland Park Zoo My Aunt Brooke took her kids to Woodland Park Zoo on Tuesday and since I’m only 5 miles from the zoo, she asked if I wanted to join them.

Seattle Seahawks, Super Bowl 2014 Champions

What an unbelievable game today! Nick and I invited Dad, Mom, and Amanda over to watch the game and though we aren’t exactly big football fans, we were shouting and laughing the whole game. I think this may be the first time the football game was more amusing than the commercials (what disappointing commercials this … Continue reading »
