In April, just in time for the first week of my spring break, we had a visit from [livejournal.com profile] theoctothorpe
Christopher

He'd been to Seattle before, so he had already done a bunch of the big touristy stuff, so we concentrated on seasonal and out of the way things to show him when we were out an about.

We took a day trip up to see the tulip fields in bloom.

Looking at tulips

Christopher has an enormous lens on his camera. He offered to attach it to my camera, but I was pretty apprehensive. It was so long and heavy. It took both hands to hold. It was really cool once it was attached though. I fired off some great shots:

Between Christopher and I we pretty much shot Ron from every angle.

We also went up to Snoqualmie Falls. The falls were really running, so that was cool to show Christopher. We will have to go back in August so he can see what they are like in Summer.

Christopher already blogged about Bearaoke at the cuff and our visit to the Woodinville Whisky Distillery with pictures and everything, so I won't repeat those.

We also had a great time out for dinner a couple of times. We went to Boom Noodle with [livejournal.com profile] joebehrsandiego (they have a gluten free menu! I got to havePhở!) and to the Elysian Brewpub with he and [livejournal.com profile] putzmeisterbear and [livejournal.com profile] fogbear, [livejournal.com profile] artstache and Stan. It was a great deal of fun, though I was completely lost as all the pop culture references flew around. I never know what other gay men are talking about. And I didn't even know that was physically possible. No, not that, I knew about that. That other thing. Ya, that one. Who knew?

Ron and Christopher enjoyed the beer a great deal. (I'm allergic which makes me very sad) We are collecting all the Beers of the Apocalypse for Christopher's August visit so he doesn't miss them.

Christopher will be back in August, so that will be a great deal of fun. He is on the west coast next week, but we just couldn't figure out how to bleed our budget of enough money to fly down and join him. Did you know that $59 dollar air fares to SF are a thing of the past? Its true. I guess I haven't looked at airfare for a long time.

Anyway, that is what is new and exciting from a couple months ago.

OH! And don't forget it is Christopher's Birthday today! Make sure you wish him a happy one!
