My how things have changed. I'd rather have my eyes gauged out with a red-hot poker than to work in retail again. Although a make-up counter might be slightly more tolerable.
I still like Seattle, though.
We only spent about 3 hours downtown. The rest of the time we were at the Hilton next to the airport. We had lunch at Spencer's in the hotel before the seminar started. I guess it was our "anniversary lunch" since ordering pizza that night isn't much of an anniversary dinner.
Usually when we go out to eat Steve likes what I order better than what he orders. I think I can count on one hand how many times this is reversed. This was one of those times. He just got a burger and fries, but it was one of the best burgers I've ever had. (No offense, In-N-Out. I still love you.)
Yes, I took a picture of it. If you know how I feel about food, it shouldn't surprise you.
Here's a bunch of pictures of Ivy that could really have been taken anywhere. At least you don't have to look at our poor couch, right?
Here we have Ivy posing for a Hilton advertisement. Ya, the beds really were that comfy.
. . . after falling asleep on the light rail. Since we didn't have a stroller with us, we carried her around like that the whole time.
Strange that Sophie isn't in this picture. I don't think we have one of Ivy with just the two of us.
And like I said . . . the girls were happy to be reunited at bath time. When I put Ivy in the bathtub in Seattle, she looked around and then looked at me like, "Um, no toys? No bath buddy? Lame-o bath, mom."
