Rob’s Parents Come to Visit

Bob and Sandy Samsel came to visit.  They stayed for almost a week.  While they were here they helped us a TON in the backyard.  Rob and I were both amazed at how much we were able to get done in the three days the four of us worked on the yard (I will do a post on the yard when it is finally finished. We’re getting close).  We were very grateful for all the help that they gave us.  Hopefully we will have grass before the end of the summer.

While they were here, we did manage to have a little fun.  On the day they arrived, Rob and I took Bob to a Seattle Sounders soccer game (tickets found free on Craigslist of course!).  We had great seats and free food vouchers.  The Sounders won which made it that much better. 


We also went to downtown Seattle to the Crab Pot restaurant.  Bob had seen the restaurant on the show Man vs Food and wanted to try it.  It is a seafood restaurant and they are famous for bringing out bowls full of mussels, clams, crabs, etc and dumping it on you table for all to enjoy.  If you are a seafood fan, this is a great place to eat.  They give you a TON of food.  Both Bob and Rob ate until they were stuffed.  It was a fun experience.

Here we are all prepared for the Feast!

The concept of having food thrown on a table for you to pig out on is kind of disgusting if you think about it, but the food really was delicious.  There aren’t many resturants in the US where it is acceptable to eat with your hands and wear a bib.

Rob annoyed that I never learned not to play with my food.

Thanks Bob and Sandy for coming to spend time with us and for all the great help in the yard!
