Spring Break - Day 1 of 2 - by Brad

After church we packed up the van and headed to Seattle for our single-night Spring break extravaganza. About the time we were half-way to Seattle, we realized that we forgot to pack Wesley and Spencer's swimming shorts. This realization prompted us to stop at the North Bend outlets since a major role in our hotel selection was the requirement of an indoor pool. It was here, pulling into the parking lot of the outlet mall, that Elliott's Dramamine failed him. Luckily we had a plastic toy-box that when emptied, doubles as a barf bucket. We found a parking space away from other people and cleaned up.

We arrived the hotel around 4:30, got settled, and found a nearby restaurant. We settled on the Outback Steakhouse. Lindsey had some chicken and rice stuff, the boys had cheese burgers and chicken tenders, and I had some pork tenderloins... but I should have had the BBQ ribs. We circled all the way around Queen Anne hill, making a pit stop in Ballard to pick up snacks for the evening.

When we got back to the hotel, we watched a little Discovery Channel and then went swimming. Well, Elliott and I went swimming. Spencer, Wesley, and Lindsey just sat around the side of the pool. Over an hour in the water and it was time to go back to our room. Watched more Discovery Channel. I think Spencer now has a fever to go along with his congestedness. Everyone is asleep except me, so I should post this and go to bed too. Hopefully I will have a post with pictures tomorrow. I would have taken a picture of the boys laying on their hotel beds watching the Discovery Channel, but two out of the three had their hands in their pajama pants.

Two of my favorite things were listed in this post...dramamine and Outback Steakhouse- both have served me well. So sorry Spencer isn't feeling well. I'm afraid our little guy could have shared that with him. Watch for red bumps in his mouth- not to scare ya, but just incase. I'm praying that he feels better soon.
