Missed Day 1? You’d better go read it: Birthday in Vegas – Day 1 (Friday) Missed Day 2? You’d better go read it: Birthday in Vegas – Day 2 (Saturday) And at last, we come to the final day of the Birthday in Vegas. Once again we hit up the breakfast buffet and ate ourselves […]

Birthday in Vegas – Day 2 (Saturday)

Missed Day 1? You’d better go read it: Birthday in Vegas – Day 1 (Friday) The next morning we got up and headed downstairs to the breakfast buffet. Oh, it was nice. They had made to order eggs, bacon, salad bar, and soft serve ice cream. We pigged out. And we filed the paperwork for […]

Birthday in Vegas – Day 1 (Friday)

Well, it’s been a while, eh? I wish I could say that I’ve been good about keeping up with the blog, but I really haven’t. Case in point: this post! Joni’s birthday was in the middle of February, and we went to Las Vegas with Dennis and Pam (Joni’s parents)! Did I blog about that […]

Mt Rainier

Last weekend we went down to Julie and Jon’s place, then went over to Mount Rainier National Park. As in, the big mountain we keep talking […]

The Ballard Locks

Last Sunday we decided to make a little exploring. We hopped on the bikes and headed West. The goal was to get alllll the way over to Ballard to see the locks. The problem though was that the bike trail kinda turned into street for a long ways. Not yet being confident enough for streeting […]
