Thursday, after staying up uber-late to watch the Olympics the night before, we slept in a little bit. Danny, Brian and Shawn left to pick up J.D. at the airport before heading to the Gorge for their much anticipated concert. I dropped the girls off at Wenberg State Park, which includes a beautiful beach on Lake Goodwin. The best part is that it is only 15 minutes from the house! So, they had a nice afternoon of sunning and swimming. And not taking photos! (tsk tsk)
After the beach, we drove thru Country Burger for assorted burgers, fries, onion rings and shakes and headed back to the house to eat and change clothes. Then they went to the movies and saw "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2." The best line I heard while driving them home was, "It was okay, but OUR sisterhood is BETTER!!" Awwwww. While they were gone, I made their favorite dessert to eat together: Tapioca with milk and berries. Good stuff. (Though I'm guessing Josie Grandma is trying not to gag at this photo!) So, we were all up late again Thursday night, watching the American lady gymnasts RULE! (Side note: The Olympics are SO messing with our sleep around here. Anyone else having this problem?) We slept in again and had waffles and sausage for what I like to call "brunch." Then we headed down to Lynnwood to the lovely Alderwood Mall. There was shopping to be done! And shop is what they did! They ate a killer dinner at PF Changs and then followed it up with Jamba Juice. Where do they put it? I ask, only because as I type this, they are snarfing (yes, I said SNARFING!) down another batch of the above-mentioned favorite dessert!
And gushing over Michael Phelps.
Tomorrow: Total Tourist Day!
