We had such a fun weekend with our friends, Jeremy and Tara, and Peter and Jessie.
I made a cheesecake. Jeremy (a.k.a Uncle Ricky) and Tara arrived in the evening. We headed down to the brewery for dinner then back home. We watched a really ricidulously dumb documentary called Outdoorsmen (if you can call it that) and went to bed.
On Saturday we got up and sipped coffee. Tara and I did a quick store run with Gigi before we all got ready and headed into Portland.
Gigi slept in the car on the way there. She always sucks on her blankie to fall asleep.
Our first stop was Fire on the Mountain. We met up with Jessie and Peter, and Greg, Sondi and Ella (and a few others) for a late lunch. We actually ordered 100 wings. I'm a little embarrassed about this. Kyle is proud. Men are from Mars.
Just waking up, with Jeremy and Tara.
After lunch, the boys headed off to the Holiday Ale Festival and we ladies went to do a bit of shopping at H&M. I found a couple warm tops for myself and even more little things for Gigi. Who knew they had baby clothes!? It was all fun and games until Gigi fell over (my fault) and hit her little head (she has a baby black eye). Man, and I almost made it a year without breaking her.
It was freezing out. We walked to Pioneer Square to meet up with the guys.
Then we all headed home where I quickly whipped up Coconut Chicken Paella. We played Apples to Apples for a short game which then turned into Cards Against Humanity (a very politically incorrect, highly offensive game that follows the Apples to Apples rules). Seriously... don't look at this if you are easily offended. We had cheesecake and went to bed around midnight.
On Sunday we got up and had a lazy morning. We made breakfast burritos and relaxed. Eventually we headed downtown to walk around which inevitably ended up with pizza and beer at the brewery.
Playing silly games with Dad.
Me and Tara.
Eating some paper and rocking some shades.
Jeremey, Tara, Pete and Jessie headed back to Seattle and we went to go find our Christmas tree.
Then it was time to get G ready for an early bedtime.
After she was bathed and cuddled up in bed, we curled up on the couch with a mug of tea and watched disc one of this Prohibition documentary.
All in all, a great weekend. We had so much fun with our friends. Hope you had a great weekend and are having a good start to the week.
