Long (but never long enough), eventful weekend

Friday night, Steve and I attended our first Seahawks game of the year. Granted the game was still preseason, we couldn't pass it up because our tickets were free and in the club level. Our seats were next to some (thankfully, not so rowdy) Raiders fans aka Raider Nation. I'm not a Raiders fan at all, but had to get my picture taken with what seemed to be their #1 fan, that is until I saw another guy that had the Raider logo tattooed across the back of his head - they're crazy!

On Saturday morning, Steve and Mrs. Cook picked up coffee and breakfast for the three of us and then she, so graciously, drove us, along with Cheryl, down to Qwest Field for the Cougar game vs. Oklahoma State. We met up with Lauren, Shawn and Shawna and a bunch of other Coug friends at the Bunyard/Easterlin tailgate. They had arrived around 8am with their new Cougar RV/van fully equipped, and the best part was is that it has a bathroom!! The Cougs lost, but we still enjoyed ourselves and spent most of the afternoon barhopping throughout Pioneer Square.

Steve left one of the bars around 5pm and drove out to Ravendale to buy a trailer - very random, but he really wanted to buy one. We got a 1967 Aristocrat - it needs a bit of work, but it's in excellent condition considering how old it is. Here is a picture of Steve and his project. We believe it has great potential :)

Saturday morning we had Wexler, Shawn, Lauren and Shawna meet at our place. We loaded up the trailer and Steve's car and headed over to the Gorge for a night of camping and the Dave Matthews show. Delane and Kevin ended up meeting up with us and camping, which was a nice added bonus. The show was good, you could tell Dave was exhausted considering it was his third night in a row. The night was cold, but nothing that a few beers and lots of laughs couldn't help.

Your eyes are not playing tricks on you - YES that is THE Pita Pit RV - we never ventured over check it out and see if they were actually selling pitas, but it got us excited anyways.

Hi Erin, I got your blog from Jessica's. I just wanted to say hi and congrats on the engagment. Your weekend sounds exactly how mine would have gone had we not just got back from our honeymoon. We did manage to make it to Dave on Sunday as well and it was a great time.Funny that when we camp there we are always pointing out those trailers. They seem to be popular at Dave.
