Last weekend was a busy, fun, cold, wonderful weekend all in one! Megan and Chad came to visit us and we were on the go from the time they got here on Friday until we dropped them off on Monday night!
We spent Saturday driving around, showing them all the sites. We ate at an extremely scrumptious restaurant after church that night called Big Fat Fish Co...It was GOOD!
Sunday was spent in search of Ben! Ben was a part of the Ski to Sea race, which is a big thing in this area. There were almost 500 teams. The race starts at the top of Mt.Baker with a downhill skier, they hand off to a cross country skier, then a runner (which was Ben), he handed off to a road biker, they hand off to canoers, they give to a mountain biker and the last leg is a kayaker. It is crazy! So we headed up the mountain to cheer on Ben and pick him up after the run. We got there and realized the road was closed off right before the runners. So we watched 3 hours of bikers...Ben finally made his way to us after his 8 mile downhill run! At least we were stuck somewhere beautiful and the biking leg was a lot of fun to watch.
Sidenote: I think we we cheered, clapped, etc. for 462 bikers...literally:)
On Monday we drove down to Seattle to walk through Pike Place Market and go to the Twins/Mariners game. I had been looking forward to the game for a long time. And to make life even better, the sun was actually shining in Seattle!
For other news...Ben and I are packing this weekend and getting ready to move to a new home next weekend to a neighboring town. We are really excited to be living in a home again. We feel very spoiled...and blessed because it will be a wonderful home and place to be. I also just decided to be done at the YMCA in 2 weeks. I am really thankful I am able to do that so that I can come home a couple times during the summer and then I will also be able to spend time with my parents when they come to visit.
