See who the little B's are with? Our special, wonderful, super good family friend and Brailey's former ice skating coach, the lovely newlywed, Alli Jo! The two B's are wearing the shirts she gave them for being in her wedding - Brailey's says "Hand Picked" with the date on the back, and Britt's says "King of the Rings" with the date. Allison and her new husband moved to the Seattle area in August to co-manage an ice rink, and we have been missing her like crazy! So you can understand how excited we were to see her... And OH MY GOODNESS did us 4 B's have the time of our life this past weekend in Seattle! Brady was fortunate to be one of the judges for the PBR held in Kent, which is a town next to Seattle, and so we used the opportunity to see our family and friends, and there wasn't a dull moment one... So keep reading! This is an adventure you won't want to miss, I promise.
Our last stop was at this fantastic pirate store, filled to the gills with pirate stuff. Britt, of course, loved it! He lost his first front tooth the Friday before our trip, so he's got a great pirate grin, right now.
Britt is such a sweetie boy, he blew me a few kisses and waved to me from his spot with Brady behind the chutes. I think this is such a fun picture...!
And here is my family! Aunt Mary, Cindy and John with the 4 B's. Pat took this picture for us, and it turned out great! Aunt Mary had us come to the van after the show. After breakfast, she had gone shopping for the B's and got them the most perfect gifts ever... A pirate ship for Britt and a huge set of ornaments to paint and decorate for Brailey! Needless to say, the kiddos were THRILLED! Britt literally carried the pirate box on his lap the entire drive home, and it was a good sized box! Aunt Mary figured out their interests just from our breakfast conversation... Isn't that so sweet? Melted my heart... It was SO GOOD to see my family! And we are going to see them again, because the two little B's and Big Mama are going to head back to Seattle SOON! We want to go at the beginning of Christmas Vacation like we did last year. We have three major reasons to go - Nicoley Jo, Alli Jo and my family... Next time, we're going to go ice skating, ride the ferry, take the underground tour, visit the aquarium and maybe even visit the Children's Science Center. We can't wait! There is nothing so wonderful as spending time with the people you love, and we love our Seattle people! We love them a LOT!
