What's wrong with this picture? Why does the little girl get the big chair and the big boy get the little chair? Hmmm
Sunday morning before church we went in to Seattle. It was really pretty. We did get a picture with us at the Space Needle, but it's a vertical shot and I can't get it to rotate. So, oh well. But, I love this picture -- Callie and Samantha looking and smiling at each other. So cute.
When Marcus was younger, his dad went to graduate school at University of Washington. During that year, they rented out this house. It was a trick finding this baby. We only had a street name, and it was the wrong one. I was determined to find this house. We had spent so much time looking for it, there was no way we were leaving without finding it. And find it we did. It was fun for Marcus to have a flood of memories come back. The man who bought the house in 1990 still lives there. We were able to talk to him for about 20 minutes as he confirmed that this was definitely the house.
I'm not quite sure what I think about Spokane yet. Everyone has told us such wonderful things and this coming weekend we plan on going around to some places to get to know the area more. I want to know why everyone said great things about Spokane. Because, not that it's a bad place, I just haven't quite figured out yet why it's such a good place. I'm excited to get to know our new area. But, after this weekend, Marcus and I concluded that we could definitely, most definitely do Seattle! It's a very pretty and clean area. Perhaps he'll find a job there next year. Who knows? But we sure wouldn't mind.
Thanks Emmi and Dan for the tremendous hospitality. It was so fun being with you guys. It's good to have great friends that we can see from time to time. Have fun on your trip to the Virgin Islands! Sheesh. Are you sure you don't want us to come? Ask your parents just to make sure.
