Day 7: Day Before Wedding

Back in Maui

Funny being here twice in one year. Day 1: Thankful for husband who loads car with luggage and carries Lincoln’s gear. For TSA Pre. For baby who flies really really well. For not feeling disastrous despite less than 4 hours sleep. For learning L slept through the night for first time in weeks. For landing in Maui and the familiar scent, sound, heat of it. For the excitement of being here. For our traditional Costco run and the anticipation of friends’ arrival. For L finally eating. For our walk on the beach to see sunset. For introducing L to the ocean. The look on his face in the sand, seeing the pools, and his crib that he won’t use. For L’s repeated delight today with pretty much everything, but especially our hotel room.

Fourth of July Weekend

It doesn’t quite feel like summer in Seattle until the fourth of July. This weekend in the 80′s confirmed it. Thursday night kick off after work celebrating Marky’s birthday with beers and Thai food with his family. Friday morning brunch at our house with ZoĆ« and Eric over. Paper shopping and a facial at U-Village. Surprise sneak peak of fireworks at home. Saturday was errands, running into Val at Elliott Bay, crafting Ernelyn’s gift, followed by amazing evening at Dahlia Lounge celebrating her 40th birthday with family. Sunday was dim sum with Jules, doing chores around the house, naps, mass, and then pizza dinner with Courtney and Sean at Z & E’s rooftop as the sun set. All while Lincoln crawled, screeched, laughed, kept us up late, played, impressed, and generally became a major handful. It was a good long weekend.

Happy Tuesday

I know it’s now spring but it’s still so surreal coming home to sunshine. Lincoln was particularly boisterous and bouncy which was fun. Ryan insisted it was fajitas night and Lincoln’s titas joined us for dinner. They even made a fresh strawberry pie for dessert! Afterward, baby went to bed bathed and fed and I finished up work.
