Seattle Summer

parent’s deck


I LOVE Seattle in the summer time. LOVE it. So, when I found out that I had a month off at the end of summer…I knew right were Tucker and I were headed. We had so much fun, too much fun. We ate at all our favorite spots:
Nikos Gyros in Magnolia (chicken sylvlaki salad and greek fries)
Thai Toms in the U-District (tofu yellow curry)
Paseo’s in Fremont (cuban sandwhich)
Palisade’s in Magnolia
Maggie’s Bluff in Magnolia
Piroshky Piroshky at Pike’s
and of course my dad’s BBQ
we hung out with family, friends, went camping, went fishing, went shopping, layed out on the deck, played with the puppies, went to Pike’s and enjoyed every second of it all. It was so hard to leave. It didn’t rain once…. Isn’t the reason I was okay with leaving Seattle was because it rained all the time… rain to sun…. anyways it really was hard to leave.

Cowmans on the East Coast

My parents came to Boston in July and we also took them to NYC for a weekend. They had never been to the east coast besides a trip to Georgia for Peter’s Ranger ceremony. It was a hot week that they were here but they held up well despite no A.C. in our apartment. Charles came too…. It was fun having the puppies together but Charles wasn’t a happy dog while he was here. It reassured my decision to leave him in Seattle when we moved out here. We did the freedom trail, ate out in the North End, swam at the Chestnut Hill pool, went to dog parks, did lots of walking, showed them the colleges, watched the blue angels, watched a spectacular firework show on the 4th, and gave them their first subway riding experience. In NYC, we took the staten island ferry, walked around central park, ate bagels, saw wall street, saw the new freedom tour and ground zero, rooftop view of the empire state building, grand central station and much more that I am forgetting. It was a fun trip and I look forward to them returning¬†

Maine

Acadia, Maine

The Dover’s took us camping at Acadia National Park. It was stunningly beautiful. The ocean was so vast, the stars were so bright and the sun rise was spectacular. It was so fun to be out in the wilderness with no cell phone service for a few days. We kayaked, played cars, swam in lakes, swam in the ocean, star gazed, saw the sunrise at the first point of view on the east coast, built fires, cooked great food, drank nasty coffee and had a wonderful time. Rigs and Dolley were pretty cute out in the wild too. Rigs looked like a wild fox.
