Weekend Recap…Mariners Game Edition

Happy Monday. We are on the struggle bus today after a super fun weekend away. I am linking up with Johannah and Heather and sharing our weekend.

Friday the kiddos finished basektball camp and we hit the road. Our drive was so pretty and the canola is always my favorite. Although the farmer likes his wheat fields. We saw lots of swathing and bailing hay too which kept Guy entertained.

Our drive over became a little interesting when we heard that our interstate was jam packed with traffic and it was pretty much a stand-still so we decided to go over another mountain pass which would add an hour to our drive. We didn’t mind though because it was so pretty. We stopped at some neat scenic rest stops.

And the kids were really excited and intrigued by Mount Rainer. Maddi said “Wow, I have never been exposed to a volcano before”. Little did she know, we have driven by this mountain tons of times, I just don’t think we have gotten this close or pointed out the fact that it is a volcano.

Brandon’s sister lives near Seattle so we spent time at her house and the kids and cousins played outside all day Saturday.

Then it was time to leave for the game. We had the fun bus!

Safeco Field is always SO beautiful and on this day it was just as amazing and the weather was perfect. The shade came quickly and we had the best seats. Not only that, but we went to the game with Brandon’s parents, his grandpa, and his sister and our nieces. It was so much fun going together.

Even though the M’s lost (to Houston) we still had a GREAT time! I hope you had a great weekend!
