Josh's high school friends, my friends too!, came to visit this past weekend from North Carolina,- Allison & Whitney.They were fabulous guests! They said they wanted anything and everything and hopefully we delivered. Right off the plane we went up to our friends little rooftop party, ate some street tacos, and checked out our favorite park, Gasworks, and hopped on the Fremont Troll. Then we finally let them into our place to drop off their bags.
The next day I met up with them while they wandered downtown and we ate our way through Pike Place Market & people watched. The classic mac & cheese, piroshky, ginger beer route that I could probably eat everyday for lunch if allowed. That night we hopped restaurants in Ballard and had tapas and sangria, then to tropical drinks and tater tot nachos, then to play skeeball to round out the night. That was a good night, lots of laughing and catching up.
Joshua took off work the next day to kayak. Beautiful warm day. Kayaked through to the Arboretum and back around to downtown views, 3 hour tour and then off to eat truffle fries.
Checked out Shakespeare in the park that evening, Much Ado About Nothing a comedy which are our favorites. Great warm night, colorful sunset. We snacked and lounged.

Friday night was Capitol Hill night where at one point Allison & I shared a drink from a pineapple. Overall it was a classy night but this picture is very deceiving. Turned in for the night at a reasonable hour so we could crush it tomorrow hiking :)
