Spring is here!

Happy first day of spring. I love the feel of this space ... I want to go grab some giant branches this instant! And my peonies are already poking up out of the ground which is always such a great thing.

Saturday adventure

 Oooookay...I see it's been a while since we posted. Sorry for that. We've actually been tackling some smaller projects at our own house on top of the regular work load, all while in the nearly constant company of a very curious and enthusiastic 2 1/2 year old (this kid doesn't stop moving). Hopefully we'll have some progress photos to share soon, but for now here are just a few photos from the day's "adventure". It's not as often as we'd like, but every once in a while we try to carve out time for family adventures. Last time we took a ferry ride to Bainbridge Island (a big hit with the little guy) and on Saturday we visited the Seattle Aquarium.
The seals were super friendly and put on quite the show, swimming right up to the glass before twisting and diving below the surface (we called them sea lions a la Pete and Larry). In the underwater dome we watched a woman diver swim about feeding the fish. This may have been the highlight - our little guy called her "Sea Captain" (again, from Pete and Larry :) and waved excitedly. He hasn't been able to stop talking about it since.
Afterwards, we walked down to Pier 54, the original Ivar's. Little guy had his first fried food (their breaded, fried cod is amazing).  
And we couldn't resist a quick pit stop on the way home to see the Hammering Man outside the Seattle Art Museum. 

Hope your St. Patrick's Day weekend was great!
