I don’t know if I’ve ever heard of a more exciting first date.  A fancy dinner at Pike’s Place.  Bowling at The Garage.  A helicopter ride over the city.  Seriously Ryan? You make all the other boys look bad! She says those southern boys sure know how to do it (ask the parents for their daughter’s hand in marriage! I know what you THOUGHT I was eluding to…).


On one of the hottest days of the summer, Sara, Ryan, and I attempted to trek around the city and hit some of those favorite first date spots they had.  They’re getting married in Montana this winter (how romantic!), so this will be a neat contrast!



It was so hot, in fact, that the ice in our fresh squeezed lemonade was melted by the time we could get it down our throats. Made for nice lemon water, though.



The owner of the adorable boston terrier below wanted to make sure I got a picture of his dog.  Yep. (people are funny, eh? I have NO idea who this guy was, nor will he ever see the picture of his dog…I doubt he’s one of my blog-stalkers.)




On their first date, they bowled and had a bet going.  Now they bet on who has to drive home.  She wins a lot of the time… huh. Interesting, because he is totally sabotaging her turn.





Congrats you guys!  Thanks for having me along on your date night! We’ll have to do it again when it’s not so hot out!
