I do love all books that have an element of new tense romance to them (not cheesy Harlequin types though, there has to be a significant plot too). One of the greatest feelings has to be the uncertainty and electricity leading up to a first kiss. Considering I started dating my husband when I was just 16, I haven't experienced that too often. But I love to read about it!

VP nominee didn’t buckle baby
In a front-page article profiling vice presidential nominee Gov. Sarah Palin (Sept. 7, 2008, "Palin's Family Has Always Held a Place in Her Politics,") The Washington Post reported an incident in which Gov. Palin rode in a motor vehicle, holding her infant son, Trig, in her arms instead of properly restraining him in a car seat "for a short distance." When the incident was criticized by Gov. Palin’s public safety commissioner, The Post reports that she "dismissed the complaint as petty." Safe Kids USA has submitted a letter to the editor of The Post in response to this article and will let you know if and when it gets published. If you would like to read the response, go to the Resources tab on the Intranet, click on Communications, and look under Latest News.

We ended the day with more great food and a chance to meet some friends at a BBQ at Joe and Wendy's. Wendy and I had fun cooking and we both picked up some new recipes. It was so nice to meet the people who are such an important part of their lives now. And if they are chosen by Joe and Wendy as special folks to them, it goes without saying that they were great people! Looking forward to a Lake Roosevelt trip with Anna and Bill next summer!
We had to stop in Auburn for gas and the boys had been sleeping for awhile. Brody woke up crying "I dropped it, I dropped my ice cream." Apparently it was a bad dream and the only way to console him to was to eat lunch at Dairy Queen. Bummer!
We finally made it to Sequim just shy of 3pm and had a great time just hanging out! We went over to see the cows and then Brody went for a little ride on Sage. Boone was a little too spooked to stay on for long.
This is the amazing view from Wendy's porch! It is gorgeous - so peaceful.
