We got the prettiest wedding invitation in the mail. We haven't gotten the mail in a couple of days, so I can't say exactly which day it came, but it's here. No backing out now, Josh.

Rachel- we'd still understand if you did though.

Milestones on the Beach

We've made it to another big milestone! 12 weeks on The Beach! That's a record for us!

Weekly weigh-in:

Cap'n = 38 lbs
Mommy = 26 lbs

He's ahead of me, but I don't care because I'm still losing!

Head of the Lake Regatta

Yesterday I was in a 3 mile rowing race starting at Gaswork's Park, going through the Montlake cut, and ending by Husky stadium. In case you were wondering, 3 miles is far. Just thought I'd clear that up.

We took 2nd. Since there were only 3 boats you could say we were next to last, but I prefer "1st runner up".

Hannah's Dream

This is a good one!

Oh boy...

Looks like I'm hosting Thanksgiving this year (which of course, you're all invited to if you're in the neighborhood). So if you guys have great recipes, send them my way.

Hanging out on The Beach

I bet you guys thought we were washed out to sea because we didn't report in yesterday.
But no -- we are still hanging out on the beach. No storms or sharks circling yet.
Cap'n -- 34.5 lbs
Mommy - 24.5 lbs.
Yep, he finally pulled ahead by 10 lbs. It's not fair, not fair at all -- but I understand it is normal.
So -- upward and onward.
