Seattle and Just 2 Kids !?!?!?

Kent won't let me buy him stuff anymore. We have a big house with a lot of stuff!
So.....for Fathers Day, Our 12th Anniversary, and his 35th birthday I got him a night in Seattle.
We had never done Seattle together before.
Thanks to Mom we knew to go to the Tukwila Sound Light station near the airport for free 24 hour parking and a fun 30 minute train ride into town. Reminded us of Japan.
Thanks to Opa and Oma, Mom and Vee for helping with the children!

Here is a view from our Hotel room.
I also found some tickets to Les Miserables. Unfortunately I didn't get pics of us all dressed up. These are from the next morning.
I highly recommend it if you have never seen it(or if you have). It was spectacular even from the nosebleeds.

On our way out of town we stopped by a VERY crowded Saturday Market.

Just yesterday We got pics from Opa and Oma. They have taken the 4 eldest for a week. Here is a smattering of the fun times they are having.

Digging for Garnets near Cascade Lake:

In the meantime I am trying to do my best with the time afforded me with 2 children.
Lots of sorting, organizing, painting, washing of bedding, and preparing for homeschooling in the Fall.
Hope your week has been productive too!


  1. I think it's so funny that having only two kids is a big break for you! I'm afraid I have it a little easier than I like to think. :)

  2. Looks like a good time has been had by all! And I know what you mean about having "just" two kids. With the first day of school today, it feels more like a vacation than summer vacation did. ;) And as an aside, we miss you guys! You should really come visit one of these days. Really.
