Since we don't have family here & no one that we could regularly dump the boys with, the search for the babysitter began. That is a story in itself, but we ended up finding Maxine. She is definitely a godsend and so good with the boys. We are so thankful to have her!
Our dates are usually to whatever restaurant we have a gift certificate or Groupon to, but the weather dictated our adventure tonight. The weather has been so wonderful this week, that we decided to go bike riding. Jason found a bike trail that's about 10 miles away. What a find!
The Burke-Gilman (bike) trail is my new favorite. The paved path curves around the northwest shore of Lake Washington. While Jason watched the trail and other bikers, I gawked at all the lake houses we passed. Not to mention the views of Mt. Rainier! We passed, I mean were passed, by dozens and dozens of bikers. It reminded me of why people move to Seattle; why we put up with rain 9 months of the year; why the NW is so wonderful. Like I said, my new favorite. :-)
