We've been busy!

Wow, I can't believe it's been almost 2 weeks since our last post.  We have been busy, just nothing too exciting.  Annie has returned to work 2 days a week.  So far, she's a little overwhelmed and already diving into another project (opening another new clinic!).  Leaving Jacob at home has been hard, but he is in good hands with Matt. 

On Annie's off days, we still wanted to make the most of the time together.  Last Tuesday, we spent the whole day in Seattle, starting at Pike Place Market.  Jacob slept through most of it and Matt navigated the market crowds with the stroller with ease. 

Next, we headed to Greenlake for a little walk and then met Matt's parents and Aunt Stephanie at Duke's Chowderhouse for lunch.  Then we all headed up to the Woodland Park Zoo.  This stop was mostly for our benefit, since Jacob can only see about 4 feet in front of him.  We enjoyed seeing penguins, flamingos, monkeys, meer cats, and tigers.  Lots of fun animals!  We'll definitely head back when Jacob is older. 

We finished the day by meeting Annie's brother for dinner nearby.  It was a great fun and family filled day.  And the weather was just perfect for walking around town. 
We'll be heading to Port Angeles next weekend to help "man the store" at the winery.  Annie's parents are enjoying the trip of a lifetime to France and Italy, but someone's still gotta take care of the business.  Many friends and family are stepping in to help and it's our turn to join the fun. 

We hope you are enjoying your summer as much as we are.  When we are home, we love hanging out on our deck and enjoying our beautiful yard.  Our roses are going crazy!

Jacob is getting bigger every day and a having fun too.  He's smiling more and becoming more expressive.  So fun!  And he's been more awake during the day which has made for some longer sleep at night--up to 7 hours!  Hooray!
