A view of the pit afterwards:
There was also silent and live auctions of gift baskets and other items. I donated a Madeira ornament that I sell on http://www.celestial-creations.com for the live auction. The woman who won the bid is also going to buy more as Christmas gifts!I really had fun today and I hope to be able to participate in more of their events. I only wish my parents were both still here to have found this club!

View of Mt. Rainier
We stayed there until about 6:00 pm and then headed back to our hotel in Seattle.
Sunday was Game Day! We headed to the King Street bar and Oven at 8:30 am (yes - AM) and hung out there with our friends for a while. Qwest Field does not have much for tailgating at the Stadium - pretty much a no-no. A couple of us headed over to the Team Store and looked for goodies. After that, we went around the corner to The Hawks Nest - a new bar and grille that just opened up by a friend of ours. It was packed! I am so happy for her - her dream of a Seahawks-only bar/grille had become a reality.
The game was a good one - was decided in OT by a field goal.....and we were not the winners...sigh. The worst part is that the loss was to the Niners and we had to come back home to Niner-land and hear all about it....lol.

Hubby, Andy and Mike before the game - the hats were the giveaway for having tickets in the Irish Heritage section.
We could not pass up a photo op with our 12th Man Flag!
Even the former mayor of NYC was in attendance.

After lunch, we headed to the beach. The "boys' headed to the sand and Dana and I visited the shops. The shops probably took us 10 minutes to visit so she and I ended up at Rockin' Baja Lobster for margaritas...lol. We did have to stop there anyway so we could make dinner reservations for later in the evening. She and I then headed to the beach to meet up with the guys. Andy was able to swim in the ocean and enjoy the SoCal weather.
We went to dinner at Rockin' Baja Lobster and Dana's boyfriend, Tony, met us there. After drinking more margaritas and just enjoying each other's company.
Monday was game day! The game started at 5:00 but we arrived at parking lot section J3 of Qualcomm around 1:00pm to start the tailgating. We met Seahawks fans from all over Southern California, Las Vegas and Washington.
Here is a picture of Dana (#8) and I before the game:
We headed in to the game and hiked up to our seats. We were second row from the top. Since we have great seats for our home games, our away game seats are usually 'nosebleeds'. The game was a tribute to the military. At half time, a few troops were introduced. They were injured in the Middle East. I was just about in tears. Also, during the game, they showed video messages on the jumbotron of Chargers fans stationed overseas with messages to their family and their team.
Well, the Seahawks lost to the Chargers but it was a fun time - just to hang out with my peeps!!
I went back to work today - that was hard, but knowing that we have a three day weekend made it better!

He was taken into the Critical Care unit so he could be monitored. By Friday morning and afternoon, he was hooked up to an IV with antiobiotics and was more aware and doing much better. He spent Friday night at JM Hospital. We found out that he was being moved to a big K hospital nearby - not to a Critical Care unit but to a regular room. He was settled in by Saturday night. Another cousin took some photos and had them developed for him to see today.

While over at their house today, I took some photos of my mother-in-law's flowers. My husband is the professional photographer but I wanted to test out the 'close up' feature on my camera. I don't think he has to worry about me stealing any jobs from him!
The rest of my Saturday has been spent here at home. I finally have my laptop so I am trying to work on the family history research but the thought of trying to decipher Portuguese is not sounding fun today...lol.

The 2nd photo was taken by hubby at a local dog park. We have a large print (I think it's 16"x20") of this framed and hanging in our hallway.
She is now napping on the couch in the family room. Hubby is cooking something and that nose of hers is keeping her near the kitchen!

It's such a nice day outside so I went into our backyard to take photos. We do not have a large yard but my parents managed to plant a lot! Their legacy lives on....

Last night a friend and I went to a Giants game at AT&T Park in San Francisco. She and her sister have season tickets. Sister T is out of town this weekend so E asked if I wanted to go. Of course! The Giants were commemorating the 15th Annual 'Until There's a Cure' Night to present AIDS awareness day at the ballpark.
One of my favorites on the team - Number 33!:
