There are other things in life besides having a baby

My Dears,

I feel like I owe you an apology. If you’re not really interested in babies then this blog has been a prett-y lousy read for the last five months. Our lives have been consumed with the eating, sleeping and pooping cycle of one squalling infant and the blog has been a reflection of that. Plus I was so delighted to have another model besides Bailey that I got a little snap happy. So I’m sorry for that.

I’m going to try and add in a few other non-baby tidbits that have been happening in our lives. But I’m guessing it’ll continue to be pretty infant-heavy, considering that we don’t have a whole lot else going on at the moment.

So, first on the agenda:

Chris and I have our wedding anniversary here in a few weeks and I’d really like to do something fun. It can’t be too exotic since we have the bambino and I was thinking that we might push it back by a few months to take advantage of the cheaper fall season.

So: Any ideas? Recommendations?

I was sort of thinking romantic beach cottage weekend in the San Juans:
[eh, I cheated on this photo. It’s not from the San Juans but from Canada. And not even from the west coast of Canada either, but from a lovely little site on the Atlantic Ocean]

Or yurting along the Columbia River:

And then I made the mistake of googling ‘Glamping in WA’ which was all nice and good except I found a site which, in addition to cute tenting opportunities in our fair state, also lists cool glamping operations from around the world. Like this one in

Bad idea. I have got to stop looking at international travel Sites.

I then googled ‘unique places to stay in WA’ and found this gem. How often does one get to stay in a lighthouse?!

This website also had exotic inns from around the world. I was just about to sign my dad up for this one in Costa Rica:
Here you get to sleep in a Boeing 737 that’s been turned into a resort.

Anyway, back to our anniversary plans. Any reasonable, not-too-expensive-or-far-from-home ideas? Good restaurants? Cool places to spend a night or two? That allow kiddos? Places that have nearby things to do [eating, hiking, hot tubbing, eating, biking, eating, eating, eating (I like to eat) etc]. It doesn’t have to be far from Seattle, in fact, within the Emerald City is a-ok too.

Muchas Gracias, peeps!
