Thank you everyone who gave me advice on sewing machines and what to use and all that stuff.
I haven't bought one yet (big surprise) but I am narrowing down my
options and I really appreciate hearing views from people who OWN sewing machines.

After not seeing him for 6 months, my little brother Robert and his friend have come over from Wyoming and are staying with us! It is really great to see my brother again! I have missed
him! I actually miss all my family (imagine that). It's hard when you don't get to see them more than once a year. I guess that is what phones and skype is for but still, nothing can really beat how nice it is to see them face to face and hug and just be with them!
So, while they are here I have been searching my brains (and my husbands brains, and the internets brains) on things to do in Washington. I think one of my big fears is that
people will come and visit me and have a horribly boring time and never come see me again (abandonment issues, anyone?) So anyway, yesterday was our first full day with the boys so we went to the farmers market in the morning and walked around (they really don't have a farmers market in wyoming so Robert was in awe, aw, ah, ?, of it and it's producey, homemadey awesomeness) , we went out to dinner at a local pub/lunch. Truthfully, I don't know what came into our
minds to decide to take two boys under 21, and a pregnant woman into a bar but I guess we were feeling pretty rebellious. Needless to say, we got a LOT of funny looks, but the food was good nevertheless.
After that we went to Anacortes and hung out at Washington Park. It is right by the ocean and there are all these really cool jagged square like rocks that you can climb around on.
These are pictures from the last time Michael and I went (about 2 weeks ago) but I'm just trying to show you how pretty the beaches in Washington are!

After Washington park, we went to our wards Pioneer Day Luau. Because you just KNOW that after the Pioneers got to Salt Lake they celebrated by roasting a WHOLE pig (be thankful I don't have any pictures of that)  and wearing leis . All sarcasm aside, it was fun.
After that we went home. Thank goodness. I didn't know entertaining people for a whole day could be so exhausting. My feet hurt, I had to pee (which isn't really that different from normal days) and I wanted to lie down and watch a movie and never move again.
And Monday....we're going to Seattle. Oh beer me strength (that is a quote from "The Office"...anyone?)
