Beth and Greg

This past weekend we went to Seattle to see Beth and Greg's new house! We left early Saturday morning and landed at lunch time. We ate at a great little hamburger place called Lunchbox Laboratory.

After that we headed to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. RIght now, Beth is a consultant there and loves it. Who wouldn't love getting to help decide how to spend tons of money on people in need!

Right across the street we went to see the new Chihuly permanent exhibit. If you don't know who he is, you still might recognize some of his amazing works of art in glass blowing.

The first thing we saw was the forest.

Next were depictions of Navajo baskets.

The sea life creations were amazing and my pictures do not reflect that at all!

This sculpture is the size of a house.

There was a great glass hall with humungous gorgeous flowers.

Outside there was a garden made of glass sculptures.

After that, we spent a quiet evening at home with Alfred, eating Chinese food and playing cards.

The next day we headed to the airport after a delicious brunch. We stopped to see the Troll Under the Bridge.

They'll be paying us a visit in a few weeks!
