Week Sans Parents

Not that this last week has been better than when we are spending time with parents, quite the contrary, that it is just different.  And between the time of Bryan’s parents departure and our arrival in NYC with my parents was just about one week.  So in that week we…

  • On Friday I had a night out with the girls to do a fitness class that was a lot of fun!
  • Saturday Bryan had to work so Polly and I met up to float on our tubes at Greenlake.
  • Sunday we slept in!!!!!!  Then Bryan ran a 1/2 marathon by himself.
  • During the afternoon we met up with the FareStart crew to celebrate two birthdays while we had food and drink in Madrona Park along with a slip and slide that was homemade, croquet, corn how, a water balloon fight, and birthday cakes!
  • Monday night we had our first dinner party.  We had Ed (he lives a few blocks away) over for grilled flank steak withchimichurri, prosciutto wrapped asparagus, sautéed Mexican corn and a roasted beet and fresh from the garden tomato salad.  It was very nice to have someone over for dinner and to see our house.
