This past weekend was SO much fun. We started the weekend by getting off early on Friday and were busy the entire weekend. Friday we went up to Monroe to visit Jesse & Kandy. We had some delicious food (chinese chicken salad and strawberry shortcake for dessert) and ended up walking around Fred Meyer just passing time. The night ended with a visit to Baskin Robbins . It is always nice to visit with them - I really enjoy thier company, especially since Kandy will be giving birth any day now to Evan. We are very excited for them and what the future will bring.
Saturday was spent at Coulon for the majority of the morning/afternoon. It was a GORGEOUS day and it was a lot of fun hanging out at the beach. My parents even came out to Coulon and Ellis had a blast running up and down the hill with them. Saturday night Gary & Lanae were kind enough to watch Ellis for us so we could hang out with Marie & Sefa. We ended up at Cheesecake Factory for dinner and dessert (thier cheesecakes are amazing!). We got back to pick Ellis up around midnight and guess who was still going strong? Ellis! She was bright eyed and ready to play up until we started driving home and then she was OUT.
We moved our mattress out into the living room (for a change of scenery), so Sunday was spent watching TV and relaxing until Church. After church we headed to Marie's for a BBQ - it was alot of fun. After dinner the boys brought out a slip-n-slide and had fun. Loni even took Ellis for a spin on it. Here is the video - please note that this was not what I meant when I told Loni to let Ellis go down it....
The last two seconds of the video are the best. The look on her face is priceless.
Monday was just spent going to the graves and going to Folklife Festival in Seattle. The fountain you see is at the Seattle Center.
All in all it was a great weekend - it is too bad all great weekends have to end.
