Remember these photos back in the first part of spring? Well we've spent a lot of time working in the yard and preparing it, so that we could lay grass seed.

So we raked, and raked, and raked. Put some seed down.... and now.... aaaahhhhh the long awaited grass is growing. It's only been a couple of weeks... So hopefully by Halloween the coverage will be fuller and who knows, maybe we'll even be able to mow it!

A Quick Trip to Utah

A few weeks ago I was able to head home to Utah for a couple of days and spend time with my sisters and Family. But mostly my sis, Jen.. whom while I was there had her baby.

Jen, me & Krissy enjoying some food and the sunset over the mountains. I miss Utah sunsets!

And here Jen is with Tate.. Just days old. Doesn't Jen look amazing for just having a baby?

One happy Family of three. Congrats Jen and Larry!

A Seattle Labor Day Weekend

For Labor day we headed over to Seattle. But on the way we made a pit stop at Leavenworth. It is a cute little Bavarian town not too far from Seattle. There are a lot of great shops and in each one you went into it felt like Christmas. So I found a pic on google of it a Christmas time. I think next time we go, we will do it around the holidays because I would like to see it decked out in lights like he picture below for myself.

Olivia is holding her Santa snow globe that she got there. Unfortunately she dropped it and it is already broken.

Then, we headed over to seattle. We did the downtown thing and there I was able to get me some of this... aaahhhhh. It was nice to be there.

We were able to hit up Safeco Field and see the Mariners play a game before their season is over.

Gotta love the moose. Olivia wouldn't take a pic with him by herself... so Dad to the rescue. I think he was enjoying it more then her by the look on his face!

Olivia did so good at the game. Near the end she managed to lay in the seat and get nice and comfortable.

We went on a Ferry ride...

And then we hit up Snoqualmie Falls on our way out.

We had a great time. Ate a ton of food and spent time with family. What else could be better?
(not an Alaskan cruise....I'm still a little bitter)
