Seattle


Lee and I came to Seattle yesterday to visit Chris, Kalie, Madison, and Kyle. The drive here isn't bad at all. It is really a pretty drive. We stopped in Portland for the night and divided the drive up. Madison and Kyle are to die for. Seriously, they are so cute. The cutest thing about them, even beyond how adorable they look, is how affectionate they are. They are right by us all the time with hugs, holding our hands and planning fun activities. I've played Candyland 9-10 times (only one twice!), colored, fed some ducks in a park and even played at the playground. Tonight we are going to take them to see the movie Nim's Island. Last night we went to PF Chang's-love that place. Tonight we are going to grill filets. Today Kalie and I went into Seattle to a place called Trophy Cupcakes that was featured on Martha Stewart last week. Ymmmmmm! Great cupcakes. We are having a great time.

We had such a great visit with you and Lee. Madison was so sad - she sat on the stairs and cried for a couple minutes. I figured out why Madison wins so much in Candyland... She knows which card takes her to the ice cream spot by the bend in the card such a cheater...haha :)

Fun visit! I am jealous. I have still never been to their place which is just ridiculous, but I guess I still get to see them because are trips to mckinleyville usually coincide. Yep, sounds like Madison is taking after Chris...:)
