Senior prom was last weekend and I had the privilege of having my house be the pre-prom gathering area. I love how grown up they look in their finery.

Today the family and I rented a sailboat and took an initial sailing lesson. We’ve always loved boating and being on the water but have long wanted to sail – and got the chance.
It was a lovely day on Liberty Bay and the sun on the water worked its stress relieving magic. I’ll definitely do this again.
It was absolutely beautiful today in the Puget Sound area, so late this afternoon the boys and I went down the hill to Liberty Bay and went kayaking.
Mt. Rainier looms over the marina.
It was a lot of fun – and we’ll definitely try to do it more frequently.
One of my friends asked me how Lutefisk Fest went.
Sons of Norway float – with Vikings! – at the opening parade.
It was a really great day, sunny, 70, and Cheri and mom were excellent company.
Sadie also accompanied us – not by design – but as we started walking to the shuttle bus she jumped the fence and ran out and across a busy road after us. Scared us silly! So as her punishment she got put on leash, taken downtown, and snarfed her way through the food court.
I missed the pancake breakfast, but had a superb grilled chicken florentine crepe instead. We enjoyed the parade, the waterfront and the people watching, but missed the fireworks.
Zach and his girlfriend and buddies stayed downtown until the carnival closed at 9, and then wandered back home. I love that 1) I live in a small town where that’s the norm, and 2) I have a great kid who I trust.
Then I got to do some company cooking – yeah, cooking! – and have another great sunny day with mom again today.
I did manage to miss the all-you-can-eat lutefisk session. Doggone it! Maybe next year.
How was your weekend?
Last weekend, I took some photos while wandering around downtown Poulsbo. It’s a super-cute, Norwegian-themed small town, but it’s hard to capture by camera because it’s so flat and spread out – and so busy!
