  Seattle Bar Tour 08 (7-08)
  We all piled on the school bus for another go at the fabulous home bars of Seattle. Chip's new spy/lounge band, the Band from U.N.C.L.E., debuted at the kick-off party, and Chip did his first public saxophone performance.

  I'm a year late getting these pictures posted, but they are still loads of fun. This was right after the baby was born...

  The Mercury Four show at the Tractor Tavern (2/07)
  The Mercury Four rocked the Tractor with Satan's Pilgrims and the Ghastly Ones. We think this show is what motivated Quinn to come out 10 weeks early...
  Chantay's 40th Birthday (9/06)
  So we followed up our 70's party with the next logical choice - the 80's! Happy Birthday to Miss Chantay, who definitely rocked the night away.
  Go Cart Racing in Ocean Shores (9/06)
  After a rained-out weekend at the beach, we holed up in a nice dry motel in Ocean Shores and took in the local sites. You really can't beat the wet track racing.
  Forestiere's Garden (9/06)
  An imigrant Italian farmer named Forestiere moved to Fresno in the 20's and realized he had bought 20 acres of hardpack land - completely useless for farming. To get away from the heat he started digging with a pick-axe, a shovel, and a wheelbarrow to cart away the dirt. 20 years later he had built an underground fantasy world, complete with citrus trees that could be harvasted from the surface. We visited the site with Tom and Peggy O'Donnell, cousins from Modesto. Chip and I were in Fresno for a Jackson family reunion. Good times.
  70's Party! (4/06)
  The 70's never died! We picked this theme because we didn't have to decorate for it.
  Halloween (11/05)
  The Mercury Four rocked Scott and Becky's Halloween party. Debauchery ensued. And once again, we realize that the under-10 crowd loves surf music.
  Carrie's Birthday (9/05)
  Now if you can't make an fool out of yourself on your birthday, really, when can you?
  Pool Sharks (9/05)
  Our first hot tub extranvaganza. That's Ruby showing Chip her moves with the stick.
  Port Townsend (8/05)
  We went to visit Laura Tucker in Port Townsend and wandered around the peace gardens and the cool, creepy bunkers in the hills above Fort Warden. One tunnel was pitch black (well if would have been if I hadn't been taking all those pictures!)
  Hot Tub (8/05)
  It's HOT in the HOT TUB! Some pictures of early phases of the deck and stairs around the hot tub. And just for fun, check out our fancy pool!

  Georgetown Gardens Tour(7/05)
  Bathroom Re-model(7/05)
  The bathroom of our home had to be the world's ugliest when we moved in. Chip did a lovely job making it more modern and attractive. Thanks to Lance Lavall for building the quarter-circular cabinet and to my dad for laying the floor!
  Insanity 18 Scooter Rally(7/05)
  My camera broke on the ferry, so not too many photos here :-( . There are lotsa photos from the rally at and on the Vespa Club of Seattle website.

  Pin Down Girls (7/05)
  Tag Team women's wrestling!
  Shawn's Bachelorette Party (6/05)
  9 Wicked ladies and one fabulous Daddy-O laid waste to that teeming metropolis up North - Vancouver BC. The Dancing was hard, the drinks were flowing, and Amtrak will be buzzing with tales of crazy women wrestlers from Seattle for years to come. Enjoy-
  Whiskey Creek (6/05)
  Chip and I went on a quiet retreat up North to Whiskey Creek Beach Resort with Ed & Janet Galore. We stayed in cozy little cabins right on the beach and watched the eagles fly and the rocks tumble in the water. This trip may mark the final voyage of Chip's rowboat.
  Surfrider Competition at Westport (4/05)
  The Surfrider Foundation put on a big surfing competition in Westport, WA. The Mercury Four were invited to play the awards ceremony. We took some family photos on the beach.
  Tulip Festival (4/05)
  Michele and I made our annual trip to see the tulips in Mt. Vernon.
  Chipfest 2005 (3/05)
  Chip's 40th birthday was crazy fun. We rented the grotto at the Rendezvous downtown and had tons of entertainment. And the best thing was - Chip was totally suprised. I can't believe I was able to keep a secret that long!
