Visit With My Niece Who Drove From Seattle

My niece moved to Seattle from Connecticut this year and drove to hang out with her two cousins (my sons) and me. She brought KittyDog with her and great fun was had by all.
That first night she came to my house at five p.m., we chatted and got a reservation for dinner. We got the best spot in the restaurant, on the second story roof, with a view of our downtown and the tourist trolley.
My Bounce, Elizabeth's Kittydog,Elizabeth and my sons walking along the ocean near my house.
If you walk to your right from my house there is a beach at the end of the walk. The beach looked pretty with lots of colors from the sun tents, umbrellas and beach toys and swim suits and towels, and kites flying overhead.
Above is Elizabeth and her Kittydog relaxing on my new flagstone seating area.
Kittydog at my house waiting for his mommy to come out and play. I think he weighs 7 pounds, more or less. He has soft silky fur and is a quiet guy and I think Elizabeth said he is a Havanese.

Another view of the rooftop restaurant, E and my younger son. Bye Elizabeth and come back soon!

Sounds like a great visit. Elizabeth and I have the same hair so I feel we are long lost sibs! Kittydog is precious...Light as a kitten?

I had no idea your were so close to the water. Can I visit? It's worth driving from Chicago!

Looks like you all had a lovely visit. Wish I could enjoy the beach but unfortunately have an allergy to the sun that just gets worse when I'm near a body of water. :/

Linda said...

Kitty Dog!! That's precious and so is your family!

Nice to see some garden. Whenever you see gardens on films and tv, they seem to be mainly grass.
