I guess time is a limited resource, kinda like money, or for me, hair. We try to take advantage of it, except when there’s something really good on TV. This is particularly true when you make trips to places. I learned early on that the Mrs HTF DOES NOT mess around with taking advantage of every moment to get the most out of trips, and that holds true for when folks visit us. They’re gonna see a bunch of stuff . . . and they can sleep on the plane ride home. This was the case last weekend with the talented AGM made a trip from Kentucky to Sea-Town to party with our troops. Apparently she’s so big time that she owns her own company out here . . . who knew?! (this is an actual sign in the city we live in)
I’ll spare you all of the details of the weekend, because you’ll get a WAY better synopsis, complete with photo gallery on her posts here and here. But in just a few days we saw beaches, mountains, waterfalls, bison slobber, worm dancing, bored bears, kindergarten break-up songs, 4 episodes of The Office on The Wall, my own office which the group packed up in 4 boxes for me, flying fish, stuffy crab restaurants, ferries that literally rock, a super-confusing airport scene (detailed in AGM’s post), blinged-out horseshoe sunglasses, and of course, GUM . . . all over some old building. (photo below was blatantly stolen from the AGM, but since it’s my kids in it I figure I have a few legal rights)
Seattle is an awesome place to visit and you can bet that all visitors to the Pope fam will have an great time here and will likely be given a personalized 2 hour dance show in our kitchen/family room. So come visit!! To the AGM, thanks for coming and partying with us – we all had a marvelous time!
