If we waited for it to stop raining, we’d never do anything fun. Because this is Seattle. And sometimes it rains. While it actually rains a lot less than other places in the country, we do have this nasty little overcast habit that usually spread from November-March. This year the wet, windy, and otherwise nasty weather has begun, and we’re experiencing record rainfall. Not just record breaking, but record SHATTERING rainfall. Fun times.
With five months of rainy, wet, cold, overcast, and dark days ahead, we have to be creative. And muscle through the discomfort to make memories with our kids. So today we took advantage of it being Boof’s last day working for the Mariners (hallelujah!!!!), and bundled our kiddos up and headed out to the game. Yes, we were crazy. Leaving the warm comfort of our home, watching a winning Seattle team (the Seahawks), to drive in the rain to a stadium, to sit on cold seats to watch a losing team (the Mariners). But we actually had a lot of fun, and the kids made it to the fifth inning, which felt like quite a victory!
Highlights included watching the kiddos dance to the songs, and eat the free kid sized hotdog and drink the free kid sized soda, and watch the EMT practicing a recorder (yes the instrument) in the corner of guest services. The Mariners were playing miserably, but the kids didn’t care. And we got to catch up on our mom gossip, which is the best. Because when it’s rainy and cold and miserable in life, it’s good to have mom friends to spend time with!
