and back in 27 hours!
Caden had a sleep study in Seattle scheduled for Friday night. BUT … he still has an everlasting cough. Now, just in the morning … but it’s still there. I talked to the nurse midweek and we decided that we should reschedule the study since it wouldn’t be an accurate one. So our trip over the mountains was cancelled …
Until Dan decided he needed out of our Valley. Wenatchee is a great place to live, except for January & February. We get this crazy “inversion” here and you feel like you are stuck in a jar with a lid. Low clouds and high fog … and its junk!
Dan agreed to help me finish up the chores Saturday morning and then we hit the road in the afternoon. We went to Alderwood Mall, Uncle Chris met up with us as well as a brief visit with the Mock’s. The mall was CRAZY busy for some reason, you would have thought it was the weekend before Christmas. So our time there was short lived, little shopping was accomplished, but we did have a good late lunch at Claim Jumper and the spoiled kid scored a new toy at the Disney Store.
After the mall we went to visit Grandma & Grandpa Wise as well as the rest of the family … Then we headed to Uncle Scot’s to stay the night. I finally beat Dan & Scot in a game of Shang -‘hai (sp). This rarely happens … maybe it was because I was the only one sober of the three … a win is a win :0)This morning Caden and I went to Top-Pot and then we attended the baby & toddler LPA event at Paint the Town in U-Village. (This was another reason Dan was able to persuade me to go to Seattle anyway.) What fun … a “messy” fun … but fun nonetheless. I believe Caden painted his tile at least three times. He painted it, washed it off, painted, etc. Below is my attempt to get a picture of him with the finished products, but the little sh*#! kept running at me. … ‘tis the year of M*I*C*K*E*Y! (less then 6 months) so we made a chip bowl, Mickey themed :0) After we were done with our LPA friends we hit the playground at U-Village, and YES Caden found “his” Cozy Coupe. You would think maybe he would play on the slide since he has his own car at home. Nope. He waits “patiently” for the other kids to get out of the car so he can have his turn. We headed back to Uncle Scot’s to pick up Daddy. Dan & Scot were up until some crazy hour of 4AM last night so Dad failed to come with us this morning. Then per Caden’s request we went to “the restaurant by Bellevue with the soup and it’s red”. That would be the Chinese restaurant.
It was a fun quick trip and nice to get out of our inversion :0)
Have a great week! … and did I mention my dryer broke Saturday morning?! I sure hope it gets fixed soon!
