Now that Fall has begun, the weather here has really started to cool off, but the partly cloudy skies and crisp air we had this past weekend made for a very nice park day. Here are a few pics!

For our 5th Wedding Anniversary, I wanted to surprise Chanin with something different and a little adventurous. After dropping Gavin off to spend some time with his cousins, we headed to Seattle Seaplanes for a scenic flight around Seattle. We were both a bit nervous since this was our first flight in a small aircraft, a Cessna 206, but it turned out we had nothing to fear!
We hopped aboard the little plane and taxied out to the “runway.” The runway always changes and is dependent on the boat traffic on the lake.
Once the Captain saw a break in the traffic he revved up the engine and we were soon airborne!
We flew the route below, but not in the same order. Overall, we got a really nice birds eye view of the city and surrounding areas.
After the flight we made our way to Ray’s Boathouse for dinner and an amazing view. Between the two of us we enjoyed salad, salmon, sablefish, a crab cake, sturgeon, nutella mouse cake, Caramel Pot de Crème (basically fancy caramel custard), a brewski, a fancy cocktail, and coffee. Mmmmm, I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.
We had a great time celebrating our 5th Anniversary and are looking forward to many more!

For our 5 year wedding anniversary, we decided to post a few of our favorite pictures from our special day, now a half a decade in our past. As we gaze at these happy, joy-filled photographs, it seems like only yesterday we were reciting our vows to each other before our family and most treasured friends, making our nuptial promises and confirming our commitment to one another. However, when we look back and reminiscence over the weeks, months and years we have spent together, we realize that in this time, we have already begun to collect a lifetime of invaluable memories. It’s hard to believe that we’ve managed to pack so many memorable events in to such a relatively short amount of time; but we have, and we hope to squeeze in many, many more in the years to come. We are truly blessed to have built a life together.
Enjoy sharing in our memories below…

I ordered the 1/2 rack of baby backs with fried pickles, hush puppies, and a Deschutes Twilight Summer Ale to wash it all down. Chanin ordered the “Who’s Your Mama” with a side of Brunswick Stew. The “Who’s your mama” is a humongous pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw piled on top. Both the ribs and pulled pork were smoked perfectly and very tasty (all smoking is done on site with fruit woods). All of the sides were very good as well, with the hush puppies being the unexpected favorite. They were fried up just right and had a hint of jalapeno in the batter. Little Gavin munched on home-made french fries and sweet corn bread. YUM!
