For some reason, I can’t get that Return of the Kings quote from Bilbo Baggins out of my head, as he sets off for the Grey Havens during the third ending of that very long film. But these days, as a father of two, “adventure” takes on a new definition. No more war zones for me. Instead, I’ll take the kids on a Sunday Seattle outing on the monorail, the light rail (Hendrix loves “choo trains”), and then a “sugar-in-your-hair” dessert experience at Uwajimaya. We ended the day at Rosie’s dance recital where she somehow held her own on a large stage, pretty amazing for a four year-old!

As I’ve previously stated here, I refuse to post these images directly to social media channels such as Facebook.
