Seattle is currently home of the 78 minute summer .... Quite depressing when you think about it. So far in 2011, there has been 78 minutes of 78 degree + weather. How is that possible? BUT, I will take it to not deal with the 100 degree weather in TX like my poor family. Too hot, too hot!
Gabe and I had a lovely date night at Chateau Ste Michelle Friday night doing a reserve wine tasting with three couples --- What an experience. We are by no means wine connoisseurs, but are developing our palates one tasting at a time!
Saturday was filled will a day at the pool. Perfection.
Then shopping at Uvillage and dinner at Sonrisa Modern Mex.
Nom nom nom :) This was Gabe's enchilada. Pretty right?
AND, I spilled an entire margarita on the rocks IN MY LAP, kurplunk (sp)!
Sunday was the absolute best. We played hooky from church and jetted up north to Oak Harbor, WA to go to Deception Pass. Oh heaven on earth this place is fabulous. If you visit Seattle, make the drive up here.
I'll let the photos speak for me!!
Then, we were hungry hikers and made our way to Sweet D's Shrimp Shack. It was a fun drive-up restaurant that had been there since 1904. I had popcorn shrimp (yum) and Gabe ate an Oyster Burger (I'm not an oyster gal' but he devoured it). Check this place out if you live in the area!
The owner treated us to huge local prawns :) What a treat!
I let Gabe work for those lil' guys ...
Seattle decided to cooperate and produce a weekend with lots of sun.
So we accounted for lots of time outdoors to soak it in :)
Hope your weekend was filled with love!
