Mother's Day/Anniversary Weekend

 Saturday evening our friends generously agreed to babysit so we could go out for our anniversary (which was Sunday).  We went to Purple Cafe and Wine Bar in Bellevue.



I actually wore my wedding shoes.  I just love them, but being white and sparkly, they don't really go with much so it's always a treat when I get the chance to wear them.  I think this was only the 2nd, maybe 3rd time I've worn them other than on my wedding day.



After dinner, we drove to West Seattle to Salty's on Alki where my friend Jerri was having a going away party.  It was a fun evening (other than having to say goodbye to a good friend, but I saw her again on Monday).
Sunday, we skipped church and went to Paul's parents' house for Mother's Day.  We had brunch, then took the girls to a park.





Later, we bbq'd burgers and hotdogs, then had strawberry shortcake for dessert.  When we got home, we continued our anniversary celebration with our annual viewing of our wedding video.
Paul took Monday off, so after helping Jerri load some stuff into her car and saying goodbye for real, we headed to Rattlesnake Lake to enjoy the hot sunny day.  We've just been having the most awesome weather lately.  It's fantastic.
