We had a great time with Texas girls Carol & Jen this weekend. My sister, Carrie, and friend, Lori, got in on Thursday just as I was being dropped off by my carpool partner - around 4:30. The Texas girls arrived a little after 7pm - just in time for chili.
On Friday, we went to Leavenworth which is a Bavarian themed town in the mountains. On Saturday, we went to Pike Place Market and then Carrie,Lori & I went up to Lynnwood so Lori could have lunch with her brother who lives up this way. Carrie and I used that time to have lunch, frozen yogurt, then browse Babies R Us. Carol & Jen, meanwhile, had lunch with Carol's cousin's family then went to see Snoqualmie Falls.
D's brother-in-law, Jake, came over on Saturday morning to help David quickly install the sink and toilet in the remodeled bathroom before they went snowshoeing. They didn't make it snowshoeing. Jake accidentally drilled a hole through a water pipe. It's a long story, but he did everything right (he's a professional handyman!) but the way our plumbing is done in the house is really weird and not "normal". So, they had to cut a hole in the wall that D had just sheetrocked, textured, and painted. Everything was wet. It took them 8 hours and 5 trips to the home improvement store to finally get the problem fixed. The sink is installed over the hole that D will eventually patch up again.
Carol & Jen made us a really yummy enchilada dinner on Saturday night which was complicated by not having running water the first part of their preparations due to the plumbing mess downstairs. Carol, the crazy girl, ran next door to the neighbors and used their water hose to rinse the veggies :)
I didn't get as many pictures as I would have liked. The guy who supposedly took our picture at Leavenworth didn't push the button on my camera so I don't think we have any pictures of all of us together :( But I know the other girls have some pictures to share so I'll let them. I just have a few from Leavenworth that I'll post.
Carol & Jen left this morning to do a little more sightseeing before their flight (they squeezed a LOT into this weekend which I'm SO glad for!). They take off around 11:30PST so say a prayer that they make it home safely!
We have another ultrasound today and hopefully we'll get a shot of baby girl's profile that I can post for you.
Tomorrow I hope to post pictures of our remodeled bathroom.
This weekend the Contorted Filbert in our front yard will be gone forever! I will document and post next Monday, for sure!
