Back in Seattle

After we got home from the Olympics were were back at Dan's place in Seattle.  On Saturday we hung around the house and played some rock band.  Everyone was pretty sleepy and Dan was feeling like crap since his arm hurt and he was getting sick.  We took a quick trip to the supermarket to get some Seattle's Best coffee for Mama and then had some sushi for lunch.  On the way home we stopped by the Boeing Plant where Dan works because we saw the giant marshmallow plane taking off.  It turns out it was landing, but we got the chance to show Jason the planes and took a quick trip through the gift shop.  I picked up a few pens, a pair of really soft sweatpants, and a tee shirt for Chris.

Later that night we were invited out to dinner for Dan's friend Julie's birthday.  We had met her and her husband one previous time.  The last time Elise and I visited Seattle a few summers ago, we went to the Folk Life festival and the Space Needle, among other places, and had dinner with Dan's friends at Julie's place after we watched them play an indoor soccer game.  Before dinner we stopped by Dan's friend The German Guy's (Thomas') house and helped him pack up the kids, Runja and Leif, and bring them along to dinner.  A few years when we visited, Runja was just a toddler trying to crawl/run around.  It was great to see her all grown up as a 6 year old, and meet their baby son Leif.

Julie's birthday dinner was at a Moroccan restaurant.   None of us had ever eaten Moroccan food before, but it was absolutely delicious.  Everything I ate that day tasted amazing.  Dinner did take fucking forever, but it was more of an experience, than a meal.

 The waiter was really great with Thomas' kids, especially Runja who would not stop talking the entire night.  Julie's birthday was easily taken over by everyone talking to and paying attention to Runja.  Who is pretty cute, I'm not going to lie.  But I think she may have been the one to get us all sick...
