last days in Snohomish

Zep & I went on a mission to the city... Disappointment at Mighty O

the case was empty, but a concerned client handed over their last 1/4 donut

next stop Pizza Pi in the U district

got the mac & cheese pizza - not as good as pizzanista....

hung with Rocky & Tater Tot @ Deb's crib on Ravenna
caught the new TWS film - OUTLIERS  - stoked for Marius
Bianca & Iris keeping the front trimmed back

Daddy reads to Iris by the fire as Buster walks into frame

Buster is a good dog - still pretty spaztastic, but good at heart

Zep wanted to go dumpstering & we found him a roll

chaos - after wearing a friendship bracelet on my ankle for 3.5 years it finally fell off
 Laura put it on my ankle, and now that's it's off my ankle, I wrapped it around the owl that she gave me many moons ago that sits shotgun with me near the speedometer.
homemade guac as part of my last meal

Iris & Zep - quiet on the couch

pumpkin pancakes for breakfast
many thanks to B for alterations and life extensions on some clothes!!!
see you on the flip side.......

home build

Brodie's new home is out in the sticks. No sidewalks, steep driveway, but they do have a concrete basement

Zep & I helped dad put the finishing touches on the 1st of 2 qp's

came out pretty good....

a few pointers from the elder

Zep hitting coping

Brodie in his lounge shoes
not far away is the Muk - aka the Mukilteo YMCA

dad doing his best to get Zep over the fear of dropping in

Brodie can still do a back Smith on pretty much anything...
foosball break

Brodie takes the backside 5.0 across and down the escalator

this is me at one of two outdoor skateparks in nearby Everett
Brodie - back D on the main QP at The Garage - another indoor option in Everett

Zep streetskating out front of the Garage
the Crown Hill concrete mini ramp is about 40 minutes away

Brodie on the 5.0

rural life

traffic started bogging down before the Needle
UMMMMMM.... Mighy O

I rolled up early, passed Brodie a donut, then he was off to flyfish

we had Mighty O for breakfast - Iris loved them
I dumpstered bottle rockets in the FORT, felt like a good time to light some

chilling with Buster in a rare gasp of sun

that's half a cow

wearing Klich's old tempster tee

Iris got a new tee in the mail

made corn tortillas - mine on top, bianca's on bottom

wallride at one of two Everett outdoor parks
found a new use for a grocery bag p:bdonk

Zep made his way through this maze....

skateboarding with Brodie & Zep.... coming up next

alex & some Caron sistas

Just when I was planning on leaving the next day to visit Alex in Olympia, I get word that he's coming to Portland.  And then on to points further south. So I left Jeff's bowl mid session to link up with Alex, Nikki, & Besh at the Paradox Cafe. Just as everything in the bay area is closed on Mondays, Sundays can be equally tricky in Portland. Jam on Hawthorne - closed at 3. Harlow - closed at 3. Luckily Paradox is open till 5 on Sunday! 

I had the pleasure of finishing off their homemade HORCHATA
she's got the reach

approaching Hawthorne
after a trip to House of Vintage, we made our way to Blue Star

they say it's bourbon infused - they always have these two

the powdered sugar variety rotates... my two choices for a snack

these photos were taken off a mirror - I can see the bliss

can you see the bliss?

Alex, Besh, & Nikki

grumpy cat on the walk back to Belmont

album cover
convinced the trio to join me for THE NAKED GUN
Will Potter was in town from DC - here with Brian from FOOD FIGHT

highlights from the film - Alex had never seen it and loved it

next up - late night Robo Tacos

the mushroom tacos with guac

fuzzy end of the evening photo - alex & nikki
I went back to the van with tentative plans to meet up for breakfast. I elected instead to start driving to Everett at 4am. And the trio went to Cougar and Brietenbush Hot Springs....Hope to see them soon.
