Seattle summers.

Life is good. I watched Ben race and I thought for just a minute that he would win a ton of money.Ben, leading one of the most anticipated races of the year.

Then it was off to REI to check out car camping equipment. We are well stocked in the lightweight, not the most comfortable, compact, easy to setup camping supplies, but I haven’t done that in a while. Realizing that as I get older I should live life a little more luxurious, I splurged on a big ol’ tent.

So what if it won’t fit in our house?

The entrance to the REI here appeals to those of us that like moving water!

4th of July!

This weekend consisted of hustling back to Colorado to see some good friends get married, embrace the mayhem that occurs around wedding time, and be glad that the silver ring isn’t squeezing my finger.

Then it was a quick flight to a train, to a bus, to a brisk walk to a park where Ben picked us up in the speedboat to take us home. The “house” was anchored in the middle of Lake Union with 100,000 of our closest friends. We found a few more friends on the beach laying amongst the throngs of people and goose shit. Somehow, they were convinced to come aboard and create a party.

The rest, they say, is history.
