See you at the finish line suckers!

Ava decided to get a15 year jump on prepping for her learner's permit. Wait until she finds out she can no longer call and drive in Washington without a handsfree device.

Yes, young lady: you do need to pull over to firm up times and meetup locations for that playdate. I don't care how hard it's been to finally catch up with your "peeps" from PEPS. I'm not going to tell you again.

Reminds me of this New Yorker cartoon:

I'll have a pinot & a bib please

We hit Portalis Wine Bar in Ballard tonight, where we stuffed Ava (and ourselves) with yummy buttered mini-baguettes (lightly toasted on the outside, soft in the middle), and tried the grilled shrimp with balsalmic reduction for dipping, and field greens with tiny bits of watermelon all drizzled in balsalmic vinaigrette.

J. had a glass of Walnut City Wineworks 2007 Pinot Noir which he described as "the bomb," which is why he probably won't be invited to hang with the sommelier crowd at Vinexpo next year.
