We jumped right into some fun on this perfect summer day and grabbed the bikes for a ride on the Sammamish River Trail. Perfect place to ride cause its flat! And wide and it wasn’t too busy and it was very pretty. Of course, what would a workout in the Land of Julee be without a stop for lunch? : ) So hello Red Hook Brewery. We had a table out on the deck with everyone else, got burgers and right next to us was perfect entertainment — this ropes and ladders training center. How horrible would that be?!? Oh my gosh. People were climbing all over it and even though they were solidly clamped in with harnesses, well, I need to just spill it out — I would be the girl waiting in the car.
Fortunately though, I was the girl having lunch with the fun guy and just sweating from the sunshine not the rope walking! On the way home we grabbed groceries and frozen yogurts at Menchies and then headed over to mom and dad’s for a few rounds of Hand & Foot. Have you played this fun card game? You play in teams. Dad and Glen took the first round by a bunch but mom and I got our revenge when we cleaned their clocks during the comeback! Of course, it might have been because they were distracted with the Seahawks versus the Oakland raiders game on the telly. Go hawks!
So tonight I had to button down and get something constructive done — so, tah-dah, my seashell decor is gone till next summer and we’ve got our rustic African things up for awhile. The best part of these? Most of them we picked up in Africa. Had we been smart we would have just swung by the closest Pier 1 : ) but its not every day/year/lifetime you get to travel to Africa and that sort of drove the need to bring things back with us.
So while I worked on that decor change, I put a fire under Glen and Dandy to get Dandy’s toys picked up off the deck. You would think we ran a pre-school or I was Octo-mom with all the toys scattered around our house — not just one big golden retriever! I love this picture though of the two of them getting everything collected. Such a couple of cute guys. Never mind that everyone of these toys — plus a few — will be all over the house and deck again tomorrow! Being a parent can be thankless! : )
