Discovery Park Adventure

Today we did the hike all the way out to the lighthouse (under reconstruction).  Spent time on the beach and had lunch.   Saw sea planes and boat races.  Boys certainly enjoyed the sand.   Tonight went to dinner in Queen Anne and walked around.  Great Seattle day.

Around the House

Just a couple of snaps from around the house from this week. The boys tried out their rain pants this week. You might notice that they are more than just pants, they are overalls, which appear to double as waders and yes O is swimming in his. They kept them nice and dry, guess those Swedes really know how to make foul weather gear (we are big fans of Polarn O. Pyret clothing).

Sander has discovered he needs to wear a baseball hat while playing baseball (inside of course, much to my delight). He has adopted Chris’ Brooklyn Dodgers cap. Can’t decide if I should hide it or not. But he looks so cute in it.

Today Sander is sporting his tool belt, made specially for him by Papa D and Uncle Sven. He does like to wear it when he does projects with Daddy. Today’s project, hanging the TV out of O’s reach. We have discovered that we have to do a lot more baby proofing for our curious little guy. Basically with Sander baby proofing consisted of “no don’t touch that” and since he had such an aversion to the word no we were done. No such luck the second time around.

8 years ago…

We were driving across the Golden Gate Bridge and I was nervous. First dates tend to do that to you, though we had spent plenty of time together before then and it had only just dawned on me several hours before that I was going on a date.

I blame Chris. He asked me out over email and said, “So I’ve been wanting to try out this restaurant and I was wondering if you want to go with me?” We were friends. Sounds like friends hanging out on a Friday night. Until this conversation with my Aunts and Cousin as they headed out the door that night:

Do you have any plans for tonight?

Me: I am going out to dinner with this guy from work.

Is it a date?

Me: No (along with my are you crazy face).

Who else is going?

Me: Ummm…. huh. Well, best go change my shoes.

I found out tonight that my very sweet husband has the receipt from out first date. Happy Date-iversary love!

Olin Walking

Olin has decided that walking was a good thing to do in the last couple of weeks. He now walks all over the place. Very fun to see this little guy just walking around from place to place.
