a day with 'a good life' :)

Recognize these two?
Yes! I knew you would! That is Amy & Parker from A Good Life

I've already had the pleasure of meeting Amy (and Parker) several times. Amy has come up for a few bloggy get togethers,  but this time I decided it was time for Bennett and I to go down and visit them! They live about an hour and a half from me but we were happy to make the trip!

Bennett and I left early in the morning, right before his morning nap. B slept in the car most of the way and we ended up getting to Olympia around 10am. We spent the morning letting the babies run around and play! Then decided it was time for lunch. 

But before lunch, we went to this cool walking path that goes around a cute little lake. And yah, it was totally raining, but whatever... we're troopers.

Oh! You probably won't know this, but Olympia is actually the capitol of Washington. And do you see that cool looking building back there on the left of the photo?... that's the capitol building. I'm not sure I've ever seen it in person! And if I have, I don't remember. Kinda cool!


After the walk, we got lunch at this yummy sandwich place called 5th Avenue Sandwich Shop. Amy and both got the best french dips. We pretty much woofed them down.

The boys were both so good the whole day. And the day wasn't over yet, after lunch, we walked downtown a little bit and decided to have a quick little photoshoot. And yes, we both looked like drowned rats, thanks to the rain. Ah well, it was fun! 
(those photos to come later!) :)

I had such a great day in Olympia with Amy & Parker!! Thanks for having us!!

Looks like you had a fantastic time! I used to walk around that lake all the time, especially when I first got pregnant. Now I pretty much suck at walking haha. You should go look INSIDE the capital. It's pretty amazing ha.
