Wonderful Day in West Seattle.
Yesterday was by far one of the best days I have had since Payton was born, even one of the best days I have EVER had! We started our day at Eastlake Community Church (eastlakecc.com) I love it there, it was so nice to see people I haven't seen in a while. Ryan's sermon was awesome, church in general was just wonderful. It was a perfect Seattle summer day outside (78 & sunny). After church we came home so we could change & get Payton's stuff together. We left and drove to West Seattle, always sort of a trek...It was actually Payton's first time on the westside (the city of Seattle that is). My parents belong to the McCrae wine club & the owners were having a tasting at their home. We arrived at their adorable West Seattle Craftsman style home (circa 1930), it was so adorable with this perfect porch. I am not a wine person, I think it's awful if you ask me but Austin & the parents really love it so they were thrilled that it's all you can drink tasting & Susan, the owner even makes food for everyone. I seriously sat with Payton on that porch for over 2 hours & it was so nice! After that we drove to Alki, because of course West Seattle is so out of the way that if I was going to drive all the way there we were going to eat at Alki! We ate at Dukes & had seafood of course it was just such a gorgeous perfect night out! After dinner we went for a walk along the boardwalk on the beach, it was just perfect! We finally came home to the most beautiful sunset (picture taken in my backyard: above) I LOVE LOVE LOVE Seattle, there is no better place to live & I can't wait to be back!
