Christmas Date

Last night Dave and I enjoyed some FREE holiday entertainment!

First stop was the Ice Arena in Bellevue. Normally skating and rentals would be $10/person, but thanks to Bank of America,we went for free! Our skating skills are pretty pathetic, and it took a couple laps before we felt confident enoughto leave the wall. Soon we were dodging children, having gliding contests, and pulling each other around the rink. Best part of the evening - no one fell down!

This isn't the best shot of us, but we were lucky to get a picture at all - it was FREEZING and the camera was not cooperating. We would turn it on, immediately press the button, and just hope it would have enough juice to take a picture. Brrrr!

Next we drove to the Garden d'Lights, also in Bellevue. This attraction is apparently a very popular destination for little kids and old people. The light displays were pretty amamzing and we had a great time looking around.

We are standing right in front of a "grape vineyard" in this picture

The lady at the information desk told us that this tree has 12,500 lights and took 350 hours to put together - WOW!!

To wrap up our evening, we stopped at Best Buy on the way home to look at laptops (mine broke) and cameras. It was supposed to be an in-and-out trip, but we spent almost an hour in there! Who knew taking picture of each other with the display cameras could be so fun??

Wow, that looks so pretty. That would be fun to go to. You look a lot like your mom in the last picture by the tree. You must be related. :) Can't wait till Christmas!
