The busiest of busy weeks

Only 2 more days until VBS!   This week has been crazy.   We’re still trying to track down all of our supplies and volunteers for VBS and it starts on Tuesday… I think we are going hunting for the last couple things today.  It’s beautiful outside and 75 degrees, which is perfect, so hopefully we will spend some time outside too.  I’m so excited for VBS but it’ll also be nice when it’s over.  It’s taken a whole lot of planning.   It wasn’t all working this week though.  We went into Seattle Tuesday for a thing at Fuller Seminary where Alyssa goes to school, and we went to a  Mariner’s game on Wednesday.  Yesterday I took my first trip to Ikea (!) and last night we had a picnic in our friend’s backyard… which just happens to be on the beach : )

Safeco Field with Vinland friends for "work"

Today we’re getting stuff done so that tomorrow we can celebrate the 3rd of July!  Everything surrounding the 4th of July is a big deal here since it’s such a military county, and I guess awhile back Poulsbo got tired of fighting for people on the 4th so they moved their fireworks and festivities to the 3rd.  Since Alyssa’s apartment is right on the water we invited some people over for dinner and games and then we’re going to watch fireworks from the yard/mudflats so I’m pretty excited for that!  On the 4th we’re headed to Lutherhaven, the camp Vinland goes to in the summer, for a cookout and fireworks over Wildcat Lake.  Plus there are a couple of parades in Kingston and Bainbridge Island so it should be a fun 3rd/4th.

Hope everyone has a great weekend, lots of love from Washington!
