I am sorry to hear everyone is getting sick. Man it sucks so much to want to do things and not be able to. I hope you all get healthy quickly.
We may come tomorrow to Everett. We are having guests over, not sure what time they will be over though. So I will pm you Dahlia

We were JUST at the EVerett museum today. It was a really nice day there and not crowded at all after lunch time! My kids wanted to stay like all day.

I hope eventually I get to meet some of you there, it seems I always check late and then we just had a busy day and can't make it.

Does anyone just want to come over and hang out in the Lily Park (aka our yard) sometime? We have one of those play structure things and a nice garden. We are in West Seattle on Pigeon Point. It's free and sort of child-proof. What would be a good day to just hang out? I'm so sleep deprived lately, I really shouldn't drive.

I'm sorry to have to bail on the museum too. Family unexpectedly arrived the other day and we're having some "issues" to deal with. So I really can't just leave. But, now that I think I figured out the bus situation, I would be happy to come into Everett and go to the museum. Just not this week! Have fun

You have a beautiful oasis, I mean yard, & Kyle loved exploring it & I would love to sit & chat & maybe hold that sweet baby! I have been having a hard time lately with life...not sure how I will do this winter! Not looking forward to that!

The museum was fun even if we were the only ones who made it. I wish it wasn't so far. It was crowded, though. Will really loved the farm area! But it was drizzly so we didnt' get to check out the roof playground which looked really neat. We'll have to go back.

Whoever called on my cell to say they couldn't make it, thank you. And my apologies because I really couldn't hear what you were saying at all with all the noise there.

We'd be up for Lily Park sometime. Though I really dunno what our schedule will be like once Will starts preschool.

Okay my DH stinks. He took my phone this morning and I was searching around the house like a mad woman. And mind you he can't call me to tell me he took cause we only have cells. It messed up my whole day, we were late to 4 different things today and didn't even make it to the main event (museum-so sorry Noah). ugh, man I suck.

Darcie we too want to come hang out. I need to get it together

How about Thursday, September 4th, for a meet-up in the Lily Park, say 10:30 a.m. How about pot-luck lunch/snack? We could all bring a dish our kids like (we'll probably end up with 6 watermelons). It would be fun for the Mom's and good for the kids.

Dahlia, Lily has been wondering where Will has been ever since their first meeting!

Does this work? PM me for specific address and instructions. aka directions...

We'd love to come hang out in Lily park too-if its not too many people

Anyone have good weekend plans? We were going to do Bumbershoot tomorrow but with the cost of tickets we decided packing everyone up for one or two bands wasn't worth it this year.

Ansel is quickly outgrowing his 3T clothes so we may venture down to H&M at Southcenter. Hopefully it won't be nutty!

We're going to Bumbershoot tomorrow, although I was taken aback by the ticket prices as well. I haven't been in two years, and they were only $15 per day back then, I think. I figure that there are at least 4 big names that we want to see, though, so to pay $35 each is a steal for even ONE of them, PLUS we get to bring our kids! But yeah, it's not a cheap day....we're going to pack in all of our food.

On Monday DH is running the half-marathon and I'm running the 4 miler out at Redhook Brewery in Woodinville, then going down to my parents' house for the night. We have tons of family down there visiting, so we're just going to camp out in our tent. Luckily they just built an extension to their woodshed that we can put the tent under if it is truly raining....back to the run, though, I'll be pushing the double jogger. EEK! I've never run that far pushing the kids....it's TOTALLY flat, though, so I think I have a chance of running the whole thing. Wish me luck!

Speaking of outgrowing clothing, does anyone want to do another clothing swap? I'm happy to host, if there are enough people who would be willing to come to my house in Bellevue, just off of I-90 at Eastgate. What days of the week/times work for those who are interested? I'm thinking about the next few weeks....

It is possible that E and I could come, but R will be in preschool. DH's parental leave starts after today, so he'll be able to stay home an pick R up if need be. I'll talk to him about it.

Will's first day of school is the 4th, so we can't make it unless it'll be going a while (he has school until 12 and then we'd be coming from Issaquah). But we will have to get those two together sometime!

If I had a hope of being able to stay all day it would have totally been worth it! Ansel's bed time is so early these days and we get going so late...

Good luck with the run!

Another swap sounds like a great idea-we missed the last one.

I'm sorry to be a flake but it looks like the 4th won't work for a playdate in the Lilypark. That is the only day we can take my folks out for lunch to celebrate their 50th anniversary. Would any days work the following week? I'm not available on Tuesday because the baby and I found a pilates class we can go to together. But the rest of that week is pretty open. Any suggestions?

We'd be up for coming to a swap too, other than on Tuesdays...
