We were out doing yardwork this weekend and Jacob found a new friend...one of our lovely northwest slugs. He actually carried around with him on his glove while he finished raking the leaves...what a nut, lol.

The guys now have rafters up for the tree house roof!! The neighborhood kids were checking out the progress this weekend.

Horse in the Pasture

So, I went to go set up some noise monitors for a housing project yesterday. I was told the site was open and currently an old horse pasture. What I did not realize is that the horse was STILL IN the pasture (look closely at the barn door...the white part is on his face). The neighbors told me he was extremely friendly and all the kids in the area come by to feed him. He hid out in the barn for a while and then decided to venture out to say hello. Indeed he was very friendly, just not what I was expecting.

Demolition Derby

We have seen signs around town for demolition derby's throughout the summer and we finally decided to go to one. And it was so much fun!!! (unfortunately I forgot my camera at home, lol). It was pretty amusing to see people racing around in these junky old cars that did not appear that they should even be running at all (flat tires, broken axles, etc.) One event included trying to intentionally roll a car and the drivers were awarded points for the number of sides that touched the ground before stopping. Incredible!

More West Seattle

Here is the space needle as seen from the pier in West Seattle. In the morning a low layer of fog blanketed this area of the sound...by afternoon it was a sunny autumn day.

West Seattle

My company held a planning meeting today...first one in the history of the company so no one really knew what to expect. The meeting lasted all day but was actually productive...kind of got us excited about the direction the company is heading and all that. We all met at Salty's in West Seattle, beautiful restaurant, excellent food, and incredible service. It was so neat viewing downtown Seattle from a different perspective.

First Light

I don't know that I will ever get tired of watching the sunrise...perhaps I should stop blogging all the good ones though, lol. This one was particularly beautiful...much more beautiful than the back of my eyelids (which was all I saw shortly after taking this picture).
