A good weekend

This past week Mark and Siobhan were in town. It was nice to see them, but their trip was short and Mark and I just didn't get the time to really hang out. He was in town to see the Goodness show, which he will hopefully post about.

Friday Lavinia and I took the day off. We dropped Jack at daycare and then romantically had the carpets cleaned. We is crazy for sure. We did get out for lunch together, then picked up Jack a little early. (BTW D.A. Burns is the best carpet cleaner don't ever use anyone else)

Saturday we all went to breakfast in the morning. Jack turned heads and was a good boy. We then went and submitted the paperwork for Jack's passport. (we are headed to Panama in December). Then we wandered around the Ballard neighborhood while Jack took a snooze in the BOB stroller. We went to Archie McPhee's and ended up at the Locks for a quick feed and change for Jack. We even ran into Jack's PEPS buddy Marin at the Locks, which was a nice treat.
We stopped and got burgers at Scooters and took another picnic at Ballard Park. The pictures posted below are from that. Jack loved the water works, as were many other kids. Overall it was a gorgeous sunny day and we all had a lot of fun. We were out most of the day. Lavinia always packs a big bag for Jack and having all that stuff allowed us to be out and not need anything. It was great.

Sunday we got up and took a stroll to Wild Mountain for breakfast out. Again Jack was a good boy and turned heads. On the stroll back he took a good snooze and we ended up walking a lot, which was a lot of fun. We watched a little Olympic coverage while Jack had lunch. At 2pm we headed to Jean & Scott's house for their baby shower. First, they have rebuilt their house over the past few years and what a great job they have done. All the neat little touches and just thought into layout is great. The shower was super and the parents-to-be looked great. Baby Isla is very lucky. I'll have photos posted soon. Jack continued his string of good performances and was great. He took a good nap on his Mommy to boot.

Evenings we had dinner together and watched some Olympic coverage. Jack played with toys and kept us entertained with giggles.

Great weekend and we have another day off again this Friday.
