The One with Washington Trip Day 4

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

I didn't get to sleep until well after midnight last night, but my body is wired to wake up at 6:30. So is Eric's. The whole clan was up and at 'em by 7am. I AM sleeping in tomorrow. I am I am I am.
After getting Eric a new license at the DMV, we had a few hours before our next scheduled event so we decided to go sea-dooing, yippee! I don't know why, but Chris decided to take a balloon all the way to the docks only to let me let it go. Buh bye green balloon!
Eric must have been telling an enthralling story because he had the attention of everyone on deck. Eric brought along one of his best girl friends, Tanya, aka, Butters. She's so pretty and equally as nice; just one of those people you want to be friends with.2 much fun!
I feel a little pale next to my sister. I did soak up some sun rays today though so we're a few shades closer together.I know I could rotate this image faster than you can say "Bob's your uncle," but this is the way my dad took the picture and this is the way it shall remain. I think it's kind of cool. What if we really did sea-doo upside down?!
I forgot to mention that Eric's suitcases never came around the baggage claim last night. The thing he'd miss the most if they were gone forever? His kilo of cheese. Funny boy. He'd also miss his scriptures. I felt so sorry for him. But the bags were found, delivered and waiting for him when we got back from sea-dooing. Everything made it. Except for his cheese.He brought back two extra large hammocks.Oh my goodness. We're all melting away here in the Pacific Northwest and I've got proof:106 degrees? 106 degrees!? I'm baffled. Mystified. Stumped. It NEVER gets this hot here. No offense fam and fellow Washingtonians, but I'll be glad to get back to my tiny air conditioned apartment in Provo!

We went to our favorite hole-in-the-wall-but-best-Thai-food-ever restaurant for dinner: Mae Phim. There are two locations in Seattle. The better one is on Columbia Street. My dad always catches the workers off guard by speaking to them in Thai. That's where he went on his mission a million years ago: Thailand. He still remembers a lot of the language!
I don't really like Thai food per say, I just like curry. 3/4 of us got the Mae Phim Special and the other 1/4 got Panang curry. Yummy in our tummies.A cool lookin' vine covered building in Seattle.Chris got stung by a bee and his foot swelled up really bad so he had to wear this custom made shoe for the rest of the evening. False.

It was just a random prop in a snowboarding shop. So silly.Then we dropped my better half off at the airport. He has class tomorrow. I'm so lonely! You never really know how much you depend on your spouse until they're not with you. I'll be back Thursday night though so it's not the end of the world.

I want to be cool like my sister so she painstakingly strung a few tubular beads onto a strand of my hair.
Ta da!I like this eternal garden of red flowers on the back porch. My dad keeps taking pieces off the bigger plants and re-potting them and then they flourish. Beautiful.Sneakers was trying to escape the heat and came to sit by me - a rare occurrence since he doesn't have an ounce of affection for me. And I fought so hard to get him in the first place! He's got such a cute face though, I forgive him for not loving me. Now, my brother is out seeing Harry Potter with Butters, my sister is out hanging out with a boy and I'm sitting here watching Knowing with my parents and blogging. That's that.


  1. Those red flowers on the porch are amazing! Your dad sounds like my dad, constantly re-potting. Minus the spider thing. (Can you tell I'm still freaked out?) Congrats on having your brother home!

  2. Looks like you all are having a great time, Paige! Love the photos! Hope you get back to the air conditioning soon! ;)

  3. I had fun jet skiing with you!

    Hehee I like your beads in your hair better than mine now!

  4. I am soooo happy your brother is home!! That almost made me cry that video of him coming home! My brother had FOREVER!! he has only been gone like a month!!
