Two weekends ago (the weekend after Memorial Day weekend) we went to Seattle to visit Tim's family. Everyone was there...I think that's the first time in several years that this has happened, & it wasn't even a holiday. We all arrived at different times throughout the week, with Tim & I coming last - late Friday night. So Saturday we headed to Seattle to spend the day. Nikki (Randy's girlfriend - Randy is Tim's brother) had never been to Seattle - so she was in for a treat. We spent the day wandering through Pike's Market Place, a hat shop, having lunch, dodging the rain, drinking coffees, & playing around. It was a wonderful day - filled with lots of laughter, talking, and walking.
Sunday we took family photos & headed our separate ways. Thank you family for the wonderful weekend - we should do it again, soon!!
Then, this weekend, Tim & I returned to Seattle for a concert. We went to see Kurt Elling at Jazz Alley. OH, MY, GOODNESS!!! It was fantastic. I could go on & on about it, but I won't. Let's just say it's the best concert I've been to in years, & the venue was amazing. Like something out of a movie. So spoiled.
Sunday morning we got to play with our nephews. Eli knows that I will read him books - so for the last two weekends, when he sees me, he grabs a book & heads straight for me. I love it. We curled up & read book after book, after book, after book. You get the picture. :) He also learned how to say my name this weekend. It sounds more like 'yessie' - but I'll take it. Kim told me that he called after me after I left. Broke my heart a little bit - but I know we'll see them again soon.
Thank you again Jeff & Kim for opening up your home to us!!
And although our travels have been fun & exciting, I'm happy to say, I"M STAYING HOME THIS WEEKEND!! Hooray!
I'm also happy to say that tomorrow is THE LAST DAY OF KIDS!!! Oh my goodness, those children were going crazy today. I was a crabby teacher when I got home today...1 more day. I can take it.
