We went to Seattle for the University of Idaho vs. University of Washington Football game. Our friends the Pool's let us stay with them in their gorgeous house on Lake Washington. Friday night we went out for a cruise around Mercer Island on Dave & Teri's boat. It was a beautiful sunset & a great night to be out on the water. Saturday morning we got an early start & boated to Husky stadium. I don't know many college stadiums you can boat to & then watch a game overlooking the water. The weather was perfect, actually down right hot! My Vandals lost, but gave the Huskies a good game. I was also able to convince my great friend Colie & her husband to drive up from Portland & join in on the fun. I have never been in Seattle & experienced such great weather....not much can beat that place when it's nice. A huge thank you to Matt & Shannon for such a fun weekend & my cousin Robbie for the tickets & side line passes to the game.
A tradition I have when in Seattle is to visit Pike Place Market. Stephan has been sucked into a few of these excursions as now are my kiddos. I love watching the people & looking at all the beautiful flowers, produce, and wares people make. We also did the Seattle Aquarium, which was a first for all. Well worth the money and we went on a Monday so didn't have to fight the crowds. It was very interactive for the kids. They got to feel starfish, anemones, and shell fish. The seals were also a big hit. Then we headed a little south to Gig Harbor & stayed at the Gormley's for a night. The kids had so much fun playing together & we always share a few laughs as well. Great times in Seattle with good friends!

He got up on his first try. Keep in mind we pull him behind our little "rin, tin, tin" aluminum boat with a 15 hp motor. I learned to ski behind the same boat. It's perfect for kids.
