Tried to take Emily to a Mariners game again. She doesn't do sitting still very well. We saw more than last year, so maybe in 10 years she'll be able to sit through a whole game. It was a beautiful day and we had my work tickets so it wasn't all that terrible we had to leave early.

Play ball.

They had some coloring. It was kids day.

Emily loves the clapping.

Leaving at the 3rd inning.

Spring Fair

Mimi and I took Emily to the Puyallup Spring Fair on Friday. Emily pet a pony, snake, goat, pig, turtle, and went on 2 rides.

Baby goats.

Ready for a wild ride on the carousel.

Lets get the show on the road.

If any of you ever saw Emily in her Jumperoo or Johnie Jump-up, this ride was not to be missed. She loved those toys so much when she was a baby, I was sure she would love this one. In this pic she's not to sure about the harness.

This is awesome.

Jumping sky high.

Emily and Mimi on the carousel.

Mimi was having some trouble holding onto Emily. She was mouthing help me as they went around. Emily had enough of the fair by this point.

Our neighbor caught his house on fire and as a result has made himself and his mother temporarily homeless. He was smoking and put a lit cigarette into a Styrofoam cup inside his car and walked away. He's 30 years old and still lives at home, is unemployed and has a history of mental illness. This is why I REALLY want to move.

There were 6 ladder trucks, 2 fire investigators, 2 sheriff deputies, unknown number of PSE trucks, and a news truck.

This burned out truck will likely sit here for the next 10 years.

This is what we see out our window, their trash and Christmas tree from 5 years ago.

Easter at Pat and Steve's House

We all got a special treat this year, got to go to Pat and Steve's for Easter dinner. As soon as we got there Emily wanted to go on the beach. I never even got a picture of her in her Easter dress.

Egg hunt on the beach.

Neighbors Egg Hunt

Emily was invited over to hunt eggs with the neighbor boy Bryce. She did really well and had a great time.

Easter Morning

Easter bunny came, we love our toys.

Jasmine got in on the fun.


We had our neighbor Nathaniel over for a bit last week. Here are the kids playing. We were doing a lot of chasing.
