Last night we arrived home from our mini-vacation to Seattle. On Wednesday night we drove up to Centralia, WA and stayed at Great Wolf Lodge. This was in celebration of my 30th b-day, plus we've been talking about wanting to go for a while now. Let me just say, this place is AMAZING! If you are between 7 and 13 I think this place would be total heaven. Somehow we were upgraded to a suite and had a total of 3 queen sized beds and 1 king in our hotel room. We were able to put Elliott in his own room and hang out after her went to sleep - with lights on! The water park is really fun. There are 4 water slides but we were only able to go on 2 of them. The other two you need at least 1 adult and someone else who is more than 42" tall - we didn't have that and we coudln't just leave Elliott with strangers. But, we did everything else. Elliott really liked the water and had a great time in the small pool for little kids. I got him to actually voluntarily put his whole face in the water. Every time we left the pool area he was mad at us.

On Thursday we drove up to Seattle and planned to attend the Seattle Sounders v. Portland Timbers soccer game. Thankfully Dan's sister, Lauren, came to the rescue and volunteered to watch E while we were at the game. It was really fun seeing a game in such a big stadium, Qwest Field (I've never been to a college football game or an NFL game). The Timbers won, 1-0! It rained for at least 1/2 the game, so I was pretty thankful when we were able to leave. It was cold!

We brought our camera, but forgot to use it at all. I did take a few pictures with my phone of E playing in a park in Edmonds while Dan was working on Friday afternoon.

E has a bunch of new words recently. Cookie, outside, truck, whale, shark, tree, airplane, baby, and bird. That's all I can remember off the top of my head. He is trying new words everyday.

Well, it is beautiful outside so I think maybe we'll head out to do something fun.

Don't you love all the new words?! They get so big so quickly.

Am thinking on making a trip out in mid-May... have to organize a few things and find out your schedule and L&C's schedule... hate to be so far away and miss him growing up! Such a cutie...
