The weekend

Kim's baby Shower

This last weekend I went to Vancouver for my sister-in-law's shower and to hang out with the fam. It was a short visit but a lot of fun. Kim and I are about 2 weeks apart and both having boys, so once again the cousins get to grow up together I can't wait. My mom put on this great day with belgian waffles and fruit and a delicious quiche. The decorations were darling. Good job mom.

Thanks mom for the little outfits for our boys...

Labor Day weekend

DMB here we come....

Our tradition for 4 years now(well for me, Chad has been going 8 years) has been to go to the DMB(Dave Matthews Band) concert at the Gorge. So once again we headed for a weekend of relaxation and fun. We had bought tickets for Chad's brother and his wife for their wedding to go with us for Sat concert. Laryssa is a hige DMB fan and well Kyle has never been to a concert ever so why not have DMB be his first experience. Anyway Chad and I headed there on fri, when we got there because of bad traffic and met up for dinner with our friends the Lathrops, dinner was good and so off we all headed to the Gorge. We had just enough time to find a camping spot and head to the concert. Luckily we had floor seats so it was great. The show was fantastic, but then again Dave never dissapoints us. The next morning we got woken up by the thousands of people and made breakfast. Later that afternoon Kyle and Laryssa came. We all hung out in the hott sun and finally it was time for the show to begin. Once again it was fantastic. I think to get the whole experience its best to spend two nights there. We met up with a friend from Chad's work and enjoyed the concert. The next morning we woke up and headed home. The weekend was just what we needed. Until next year. I have to admit we are DMB fans true and true... PS. Thanks Grandma for watching Maddie...


Those are Madelyn's words for Monday morning. Grandma and Laryssa did the Woodinville marathon which was 13 miles. As they both at different times passed by madelyn yelled out "go,go,go" she was excited to see them run. After a long hott run they finished and did great. We then headed for Maltby Cafe. Which by the way if you haven't been there you need to. They have the best breakfast mmmm... Later on we went back to grandma's and relaxed for the remainder of the night. It was a fun weekend just what we needed.
