Dylan Unboxing

The day has arrived- for Christmas Uncle Peter got Dylan a series of Funko Pops and the box was delivered today. You might be wondering what is a Funko Pop- click here to find out– basically, Funko is a fun pop culture figurine store.  It is becoming quite the phenomenon and is headquartered up the road in Everett.

So we recorded Dylan opening it while he was facetiming with his best friend Joey. You can hear Joey’s voice in the background.

To watch his unboxing- click here and it will take you to Youtube where we have the video

Tia and the Lady Falcons Basketball

Tia had a great basketball game today as she and the Lady Falcons came away with a victory. It was a hard fought game with their opponents playing some tough Defense.

Tia is about to get the inbound pass and make a shot!

Wet day at Stevens Pass

Dylan and Alex went up to ski today at Stevens Pass for our Friday Ski day. Stevens had received over 19 inches of snow the last few days but overnight the freezing level rose and it became a wet day with some good ole fashioned Pacific Northwest Concrete aka wet snow or as they call it “mixed precipitation”

We still had fun and Dylan continues to progress as a great skier. Sorry too wet to get action shots.

Wet and cold but still fun.

Who doesn’t like a nice warm basket of fries to end a day.

Friday Morning Golf Dates

With the kids in school we have been able to get away and hit the Linx a few times… 

Below we are at Willows Run Par 3 course in Redmond


Below we went out to Monroe and played at Blue Boy.  Alayne is playing with her brand new golf clubs. 

Below we went to Wayne Golf Course in Bothell, been there for over 80 years and now is closing for a park to be built. Bummer!!! Had fun though and Alayne is really getting it. She had her first Par!!!  We captured the Par with her holding the flag below.
