Today is Hudson’s half-birthday, a good excuse for dessert! His school class celebrates half-birthdays for the kids whose birthday occurs during the summer so he had his birthday celebration at school this week too.
He helped to make the peanut butter frosting for his half-cake:
Blowing out 6.5 candles:
It feels like he just turned 6 and now he’s halfway to 7 already.
Gay decided to take the kids to Spokane to surprise her mom for her 75th birthday this weekend. That meant me and Barley had some quality time together. Being a thoughtful wife, Gay discovered Munchery and had dinner delivered to me Friday and Saturday night. Here’s Friday night’s dinner, eggplant Parmesan, roasted tomato soup, a coconut cream pie for dessert, plus a snickerdoodle cookie:
All I had to do was heat everything up and eat. It was amazing.
Since I’d be without the kids on the weekend, I time-shifted my Friday to Saturday and brewed a batch of beer on Saturday. I finished just as Munchery was delivering my Saturday dinner. I ate dinner and spent the rest of the evening watching movies with Barley. Here’s Barley enjoying our time together:
Valentine’s Day, or the day before when it’s on a Saturday, is a big day in elementary school!
Spiegelau just released a new glass for wheat beers. I don’t drink a lot of wheat beers but I love the look of the glass, I find it downright adorable.
After almost 4 years, we have house numbers on our house. I’ll never got lost coming home again!
Gay and I went to Seattle’s newest Greek restaurant, Omega Ouzeri. It’s from the guy who did Vios, a more casual Greek restaurant a couple blocks from our house. I love Greek food and Seattle has too few Greek restaurants and even fewer good ones. The food at Omega was excellent — I had a deconstructed gyro— and reminded me that I don’t drink enough ouzo.
The Seahawks lost a game they should have won. It was a depressing end to a great season.
I love that I can care so much about something that I know doesn’t really matter. That’s a great thing about sports. The Seahawks lost the Super Bowl in a painful way and it feels like a horrible thing for a while, but it feels great at the same time realizing that real life goes on unaffected… I have my health and happiness, my wife and kids are great, happy and healthy too.
