Summer in Seattle, Dating My Husband

Summer in Seattle is what we endure all the gray and rain the rest of the year for.   Because when the sun comes out and shines upon this land that has received record amounts of rain, its magical.

As in any area, there is simple yet amazing experiences to be had, if we only stop and take the time.  Some people are so good at this.  We tend to be homebodies, and non-planners.  So you know - best laid plans are never laid down, and end up passing us by.

So this summer we are soaking up Seattle as best we can, both family adventures and dating my husband.  Recently Nick and I had the opportunity to experience the ZooTunes Tasting Flight at Woodland Park Zoo.  It was a beautiful summer evening, we packed a picnic and prepared to taste over 30 different wineries, all while listening to KEXP DJ's and even wandering our way through parts of the zoo.  And bonus - proceeds benefit the zoo.  

It was so much fun, and such a lovely way to spend time with my husband.  The setting was a perfect mix of laid-back lounging - picnicking while sipping bubbly rose (yes I found bubbles amongst the wine), and eventful - hello Grizzly Bear brothers and spotting Snowy Owls.  

ZooTunes is a wonderful part of Seattle in the summer, there are still limited tickets available - get your favorite group together, pack a picnic or grab your favorite takeout and spend an evening on the lawn listening to tunes.  And help save the animals.

  1. I hope Nick was a good date and paid for the date!...and tipped the babysitter;). So I'm thinking you guys went to the zoo so your ready for a dog now?! Anyways summer is splashing good down here in LB. Come visit. Love the blog.

    1. Grandma babysit! Missing LB so, P asks every day to go down there - mis syou!

  2. Take professional advice from experts to make a quick improvement in the paddling. It is essential to make strokes by the beat of the drummer standing at the helm. Buy dragon boat paddles to practices rigorously and develop a coordination to stroke in Dragon Ball Super Episodes.

  3. There are four constellations that fill the sky over China. One of these constellations is Blue Dragon. He is said to be in control of some prominent stars. He is thought to be a symbol for springtime and is included in the Chinese zodiac as an animal Dragon Ball Super HD Episodes.

  4. All dragon tattoo designs always have deep meaning, more than that they always look original and attractive. Dragon tattoos are usually quite big and are often made bright. They are used as back tattoos than the dragon is made on the size of the whole back. Such tattoo is quite extreme and extravagant of course, but it looks great and attracts attention. Such dragon tattoo design reveals a strong will and free character of its Watch Online Dragon Ball Super Episodes.

  5. The last but not the least, do research on the postures before you wear the costume to show off. This plays a big role in successfully portraying the role. After all, a great achievement on costume role-play would be not only the delicate costumes and accessories but also the inspiring vigor and mettle the same as the original fictional role, or even developing your personal style on basis of Dragon Ball Super Latest Episodes!

  6. Everything from the graphics style and the way the characters are shaded, to the over-the-top combat smacks of anime come to life. (Now I know I've used over-the-top twice now in this review, but what else do you call a game where one man drives his sword all the way through another man, and oh yeah, that WHOLE PLANET BEHIND HIM!?) This anime presentation really does suits the game's style and gonzo fights. It's just a Dragon Ball Super Latest Episodes shame all those cinematics aren't telling a better story.

  7. On this week's supply run to the International Space Station, SpaceX will launch a Dragon capsule that's already traveled there. The milestone comes just two months after the launch of its first reused rocket booster for a Dragon Ball Super New Episodes.

  8. There was cheering, drumming and a disciplined display of coordinated strength at the annual dragon boat races on Tuesday in the Watch Online Dragon Ball Super Episodes Taiwan capital.
