when harry met sofi...

so, yeah...i suppose you all know by now that i've missed a couple days.  i've decided i could look at it as a complete and utter failure and quit or i can just pretend that those days don't count because i was "out of town" and move on like i'm still awesome. 

i'm going to go with-still awesome...

for labor day weekend, we took a hiatus (from luke...i mean, home) and headed up north to visit our old buddies, the payettes.  in order to celebrate the "gorgeous" northwest weather...yeah, it was overcast and rainy...we decided to Ride the Ducks.  for those of you that have never partook in this glorious pastime, i'll fill you in on what it entails.  apparently there are 16 amphibious vehicles--basically boats with wheels--left over from world war 2 and they are now used to transport tourists and locals alike around the emerald city for an hour and a half to the tune of such classics as we will rock you and hammer time. 

it was really fun and quite the experience to be riding along the freeway and then sail off into the sunset on the lake.  we rounded out our evening by hitting up root beer xxx for a burger and root beer the size of my torso.  good times were definitely had by all.

gettin ready to board.  as you can see, we're all really "feelin" the experience.


harry and sofi respectively...the celing was done exceptionally well, he just couldn't take his eyes off it


the view of lake union from the boat, i mean car, i mean...


harry's makeshift turban/blanket hat.  lets just say we weren't as prepared as should have been.  nothin like a little creativity to spice things up a bit!
