We traveled one hour north of Seattle over the weekend for a nice visit with Jim’s daughter, her husband and baby Mason. Jim’s nephew (he’s a Marine jet fighter pilot), his wife and baby son joined us on Friday. We all had a wonderful time! On Saturday morning, we traveled to the Boeing plant for an hour and a half tour of the factory (no cellphones or cameras allowed of course!). Boeing is HUGE and hold the records for size in several categories in the Guiness Book of records! Since Jim’s daughter is an aeronautical engineer, it was very interesting to see the new plane, the 787 Dreamliner, that she has been a part of creating. It was also neat to have a glimpse of seeing these planes from the viewpoint of a Marine jet pilot! Altogether, a fun morning.
Saturday afternoon, we held a birthday celebration at the bowling alley for Mason’s dad who turned 32 on April 1st. I honestly cannot remember the last time I bowled. I do remember taking “bowling” as a “class” at Memphis State University several decades ago and, somewhere along the way after that, I must have bowled again. All I can tell you is that for a grandmother who hasn’t bowled in forever, I thought a score of 111 was pretty good!
I can also tell you that I have muscles that hurt today that I didn’t even know I had!
