Memorial Day Weekend... so far!

I know it's only Saturday but I had the time to sit down and figured I'd let you know how yesterday went in case I don't get a chance to update for awhile.

I talked Chris into taking Friday off (as well as Monday, of course) because mom and her friend were going to be in town and wanted to spend the day in Seattle with us. So they came to our house in the morning and we drove up to Bremerton to catch the ferry to Seattle. It was Carver's first time on a ferry and we think he enjoyed it. haha He wasn't overly excited but he wasn't freaked out by all the moving water. It was kinda misting and Seattle had a little fog so we didn't get the great cityscape picture that you'd get from the ferry on a sunny day.

When we got off the ferry we parked the cars and walked down to Ivars for a late lunch. Yummy fish 'n chips! Then we walked up to Pike's Place market and walked through. Carver LOVED it! He got to see the fish being thrown and all the interesting stalls of fun stuff to buy. He was fascinated by all the musicians/singers on the sidewalks. We walked over to the original Starbucks Coffee & Tea (the original name of Starbucks, FYI) to get a coffee and of course a mug. I seem to buy a new coffee mug or travel mug every time we go there. haha Carver was so cute the whole time. He would lean forward and hold onto the snack tray on his stroller like he was driving the stroller. haha I wish I'd gotten a picture of it.

After we left Pike's, we stopped at Snoqualmie Falls since Chris and mom's friend had never been there before. Then we SLOWLY made our way to Ellensburg. The traffic was horrible because of construction. But it gave me a chance to finish Ayami's baby announcements. No sense in letting that time go to waste right? I actually finished all 50 announcements while we were inching along! We finally got to Mom's house around 8pm and Carver was wired! Needless to say I couldn't get him to sleep until about 10pm.

Today, we went to Yakima to run a couple errands and mom got Carver a new dump truck that he can sit on, stand behind, or pull. Chris just finished putting it together and they're testing it out. So far Carver likes it cause he has the biggest grin on his face. haha (The dump bucket tips up so he can sit and Chris can push him around.)

That's it for now. Mary and Josie (and maybe a couple other people) are coming out for dinner and to see Carver (of course! haha)
