August 22nd....my Dad's birthday!
We decided to just wander around. First we wound up at the Fremont troll then we found this wonderful asian restraunnt that overlooked Lake Union. We enjoyed an amazing lunch while watching sea planes land on the lake. Allison paid for the whole meal as a birthday gift for Dad. We spent the day in Seattle. Dan got to hang out downtown at Pikes. Dad, Mom, Ben, Allison, Shelby and I just drive around and explored. We found a boat docking area pier that was beautiful. Mom was in awe and forced us to take tons of pictures there.
Then we saw some weird nets in the distance and decided to see what they were. Turns out it was a two story driving range. Cool! We,the kids, bought Dad a bucket of balls and a beer. Dan taught be how to swing the club and I'd hate to brag....but I will. I did pretty good!
Then we found a beautiful community garden down the road. We wandered around for a bit.
For dinner we went to Buco De Beppo and stuffed ourselves! They sang him their version of a birthday song with Italian flair! Then we came back to the house and had birthday dessert, cheesecake. Then did gifts/cards. Mom gave Dad a picture frame with a picture of him and Shelby in it. Jason gave him some special keepsake coin. Shelby made him a card.
Afterwards we decided to watch 10 Things I Hate About You which was shot in Seattle! It was fun pointing out all the things we recognized.
