Yesterday was Boookie's 12th birthday. We started the day heading up to the pool. Here's a picture of the hobbitlings ready to go in their "blanket shirts." (Eejee term).

The hobbits of Michael Delving have been busy enjoying the summer so here is the Mayor's catch-up midsummer post (in chronological rather than topical order).
Eejee surveying the cleared area that is to become the Mayor's shop.
Explanation: "monk" is how he pronounces milk, and he saw a bag of groceries in an ad for floor mats.

The Michael Delving hobbits have been very busy since the last post and the Mayor will do a catch-up post soon. One of the recent adventures has been dealing with infestations with several different types of ants. The hobbitlings cleaned out the bunker to allow more effective extermination of the six-legged miscreants and this morning they built an interrogation facility in an attempt to get to the bottom of the Formicidae Plot.
Ants - Ye Have Been Warned!

Our Seimi turned 7 years old today! We started the birthday celebration yesterday at the Seattle Aquarium. Seimi, being the monster-lover that he is, picked out the biggest, strangest stuffed animal at the aquarium store.

Today was Seimi's official birthday and the remainder of the celebration. Daddy and Seimi went to Family Fun Center and spent 4 hours getting their money's worth from all the activities. Laser tag was first up and we lost track of the number of rounds - probably at least 4.
The best part of the time was probably the go karts. Here's a video of the Mayor and Seimi going around the track. We named all the parts of the track (in case you can't hear the video):
- Porsche Curve
- Daddy Back Straight
- Birthday Apex
- Seimi Straightaway
- Ford Curve
- Audi Curve
While Seimi and the Mayor were off playing, the Hobbit Wife was making an amazing dinner, including tornado potatoes and chocolate chip cookie ice cream bowls.
Happy Birthday, Seimi!
