in a perfect world of yancies: The Bloom of Youth

The Bloom of Youth

Reader, it's been quite a week. End of the quarter at Seattle U, end of the regular season for college basketball (congrats on nine conference titles in a row, Jayhawks!). Meanwhile, Franklin's been out and about enjoying the beautiful weather as we inch toward spring.
A Walk in the Park
Nice time practicing walking with Emily at the playground today.

Here they are in lovely, shaky video:

And he finally tried the swing:

I think he's saying "Not bad!" :)

Also trying a new trick out at home—first he empties the recycling onto the floor, then he puts it back:

Alas, then the cycle starts over again...

Speaking of the change of seasons, there's no time like the end of winter to get out and see live and lively music. Wendy was awesome enough to watch a surprisingly sleepy Franklin while we went to Town Hall to see Seattle Pro Musica's Fleur concert. Beautiful and even surprising at times.

Didn't hurt that it started out with a tasty (if also a little hasty—darn happy hour crowds!) dinner at 8oz Burger Bar:
Grass-Fed Slider
Grass fed beef sliders with bacon jam: yum!

Luckily we had the chance to stretch a bit before the show on the short walk to the concert. Although it's of course too late to catch it, I thought you might enjoy this concert preview:

Definitely hope to see them again soon!

All right, before I head off toward Monday, here are two more photos. First, playing with the great car Sally brought:

Thanks again! Sorry we didn't get any pics from your visit, but glad we saw you!

And enjoying the kids area at the downtown library:
At the Central Library
Already planning a return trip there soon!
