For the first time ever, we had a double Mother’s Day celebration. After Hudson’s flag football game in the morning, Jon, Megan & Emmarie came over to celebrate Mother’s Day with us. Jon and I made seafood paella and a salad, with Hudson’s help, and Havana made a delicious cheesecake for dessert.
Havana wanted to have Mira and Hannah over to celebrate her birthday and wanted the house to herself. So Gay, Hudson, Eva and I went to a hotel for the night. All three were tested for Covid with the BinaxNow at-home test and all passed.
We got home at 11:30am and they said stayed up until 4am or later, they’re not sure, watching movies all night. They will be very tired.
Funny, Mira is wearing a Minor Threat shirt… I was their age when Minor Threat was making music.
We stayed at the new Hyatt Regency hotel (which I learned is the largest hotel in the Pacific Northwest). Thanks to Covid and a mostly empty hotel, I assume, we were upgraded to the Presidential Suite, the largest room in the hotel, which is on the top 45th floor and had a kitchen, dining area and two living rooms. Hudson and Eva’s room was on the 38th floor. It’s not often I get this view of Seattle, it’s amazing to me how much Seattle has grown, and is still growing, in the 24 years I’ve been here.
Gay and I had a cocktail in the bar before dinner then we called Hudson and Eva to come down to the Andare restaurant to join us. Also thanks to Covid, there were only 5 other tables in so it felt like we had the place almost to ourselves.
It’s also my half-birthday today, I’m 51½ today!
