Go Eags!

The other reason Nick and Deidra came over was for Nick and I to go to the Eastern/UW football game to start the season

The UW marching band honoring Eastern before the game

We got the seats from Kim's boss Tim.  The weather was perfect, sunny and 80 degrees.  This is the view out over lake Washington from our seats. 

At halftime, we decided it was too warm in the sun and we needed to go sit with "our people" in the visitor's section.  So many other people had the same idea, it became a sea of red in our corner.

The view back to our "hot" seats

These are the numbers that I prefer to remember from the game and not the final score.  It was a great game but our guys came up just a bit short with an interception in the end zone on the final play that would have won it.  Thank you Kim for my birthday present of the tickets!

Labor Day Fun

Nick, Deidra, Marcus, and Dylan came to visit over the Labor Day weekend. On Saturday, we went to the Maple Valley farmer's market.

Elle got a cool bunny painted on her cheek

Marcus was next up with an owl

It was a very warm morning so we all cooled off with some smoothies

Kim and Deidra found some lavender lemonade

Some very good scores from the market. Beautiful flowers and some delicious vegetables. They all fit perfect in the 7up crate Kim and I found at a garage sale the week before.

Time to catch up

Way back when in September when Kim and I were still off, we took Baylor on his first trip to the zoo.

Not too enthused right off the bat

We went through the polar bear exhibit first...right in time for feeding and the presentation.

A VERY up close view of one of the polar bears

Oh no, th spider web has caught a baby and it looks like it has already been wrapped up!

And here comes the spider! 

Next up..a little alligator wrestling

And then we had to test the slides

Yes, both of them.

Finally, it was off to the goats to let them eat out of our hands.  Elle let daddy feed them this time.  Maybe next time.
