Impromptu Weekend

Due to our camera ceasing to function this week we made an impromptu trip to Seattle for Friday night and Saturday staying with my college roommate and her husband. They were very gracious to let us stay with them on such short notice, but we tried to help out with their gardening on Saturday.

Unfortunately this did not work out so well with a toddler in tow...

They also have a koi pond in their backyard and Cory wanted to look at the fish. Well, he got a little too up close and personal and fell in. The pond is not that big, maybe 3 feet by 4 feet, but it's at least 3 feet deep. I was just coming out of the house and from the time I heard him fall in to the time that Wendy pulled him out was all the time I had to navigate the patio furniture and get over to them. Wendy said he was actually trying to swim towards her so that was a good thing, but he wouldn't have been able to get out on his own I don't think. And he was rather freaked out.

So after a bath and an new set of clothes (for Cory and Wendy!) we went out to help weed the corn patch. Cory was interested for a bit and then started saying he was scared of the beetles and the ants. I realized it was lunch/nap time so thus ended Cory's participation.

We didn't get too far on the corn patch either, but they did get their tomato garden howed and planted near the house!

During all of this Brian had driven back to the camera shop to try and see if the camera could be fixed. They said maybe, but we're going to send it in to a shop that has repaired it before.

But after that he went and visited a computer warehouse where they put together a new computer for us! So I am writing this on a fancy new (super fast!) computer without any junk on it since it was custom built. Woo hoo! Now if I could just figure out how to calibrate our old monitor so things actually look white we'd be in business!

Happy weekend!


  1. Oh my gosh! How scary! I'm glad Cory's okay, and I hope this doesn't ruin your summer plans of lots of swimming.

  2. Wow, I'm glad things tuned out ok. Poor Cory!
