My Grandparents are visiting from Wisconsin to take care of me for a week. We got to celebrate my Grandpa's birthday together! He and I both wore our birthday hats in celebration before eating some Pecan Pie after being taken out for steak (Thanks G-ma!). Happy Birthday Grandpa! Here's to many more celebrations together...
We spent two nights with Dad's good good friends, Jeff and Anne, and their two kids, Jack and Sophie. Sophie sure is cute, I did my best to impress her. She is an older woman...by 2 months. Thanks to the Taylor's for being so welcoming of us in their home, we love seeing you guys and always feel so at home. We wish we could move into the empty house next door to you.
Congratulations to Aunt Erin and Uncle Andrew! Your wedding was beautiful and I was so happy to be a part of it. Dad walked with me down the aisle, I was a "hit," I have been told. They said I was kinda like Ms. America but without the wave. Stopping and smiling, making eye contact with people, hamming it up as I made my way to the altar. They say I couldn't have been more perfect. If Aunt Erin hadn't been so beautiful, I certainly would have stolen the show.
P.S. If you look closely, you can see my walking down the aisle. It was really hard for Mom to get a good photo. Hopefully we'll have a video someday!
We spent a gorgeous day in Seattle, we ate Ivar's Clam Chowder (Dad's favorite) and sat on the pier. I liked the Clam Chowder until I put my fingers in it...ouch! That was hot! We went to the Pike Place Market and the fruit vendors gave me pieces of peaches to try, YUM! Talk about fresh fruit! Dad and I looked at the infamous Flying Fish and we even found a store at the market that was called "Jack's Fish." We had to take my picture by it! We wish we could not go to work and daycare and do this everyday.
