Sam and I are in Bellevue, WA for a couple of days, and we have been striking gold at our restaurant choices. Here is the rundown (mostly so I can remember where we went.):
Wild Ginger-so good, esp the pad thai
Caffe Vovito-great coffee, fresh orange juice, and pistachio gelato
Top Pot doughnuts-best apple fritter I have ever had, and once again good coffee
The Pumphouse- (the Seafair pirates were there, yikes) Texan burger and Jalapeno burger
Le Panier-pain au chocolate, and amandine both amazing
Din Tai Fung-juicy pork dumplings, hot and sour soup, noodles with sesame sauce really, really good, worth the wait.
The Kingfish Cafe-Yam Fries (YUM) fried chicken and mashed potatoes and collared greens, pan fried catfish and grits, and felt like the south.

don't get too excited...

I don't have any pictures, but we are full of new things around here. Evie is now walking. She started about 2 weeks ago, and in the last week has really gotten the hang of it. She can also say "uh oh", and other cute baby sounds, but "uh oh" is the one clear word. She is a little fireball who is full of sweetness and sass, just like her big sister.
Maggie is doing great. Her imagination is really growing and she loves to sing (esp. standing on the edge of the tub, holding on to the handrail and watching herself in the mirror). She likes to be read to, and is always making (or having me make) nests out of pillows and blankets for her.
And our real big news is we will soon be a family of 5! I am pregnant with number 3, due in late August. We are excited and scared, but mostly just busy with our girls and trying to finish some home projects up before August rolls around...
