A visit from the Haley's

Marie and Joe and their 5 children came to visit us for a couple days. We had been looking forward to their visit for a long time! We had such a great time and LOVED having them in our home!!

Amanda loves to read the twins' bedtime stores, so that was her job while they were here.

We have a lot of wild rabbits in our backyard and Tyler made it his goal to try and catch one. He tried real hard and made many, many attempts, but, sadly, he wasn't successful.

The first day, we all went to Seattle for the day. Our first stop was Pike's Market. We love going there to "people watch" and to check out the fruit, seafood, flowers, and various stuff for sale by the vendors.

The gum wall is both fascinating AND gross!!!

Went walked along the waterfront, where there are some interesting and fun things to see.

We went to the Seattle Center and played in the fountain.

Next we went to a Mariner's game. There is always so much to see and do before the game even starts.

On Wednesday we went to the Point Defience Zoo in Tacoma.

Quote of the day...

A couple weeks ago Amanda and I were in the car going somewhere and the following conversation took place:

Me: Which way should we go?
Amanda: I don't know....whatever you think.
Me: Let's see....I think we'll take the backroad. It'll probably be alot faster.
Amanda: Why doesn't anyone ever take the frontroad?

Really Amanda?? And here I thought you were in what??? College???? :0)

I love you Amanda.......
