Well, today was a joyous day in the McCarty household!  Thanks to Megan's mom's saavy internet skills and the wonderful resource of craigslist, we have a dog!  She is an 8 week old shih tzu/yorkie mix.  They call her a shorkie.  She's adorable and we named her Sadie.  We had to get her a cat collar because all the dog ones were too big!  She's definitely going to add some fun around our place!


Matt and Brandy!!!


This weekend we had our first visitors from Missouri.  Matt and Brandy flew into Seattle Thursday night.  Friday morning we went to the Seattle Center where we saw the Space Needle and the Experience Music Project.  Then, that evening we told Megan we were going to a Seattle Mariners game.  But, to her surprise, the American Idol Tour was coming through Tacoma that night.  We went down to the concert and had a great time.  Saturday, we spent the day at Snoqualmie Falls,  Sunday, Matt and Brandy joined us at our church for the morning.  Then, we headed to Pike Place Market.  We had a great weekend getting to see them again.  They seemed to really do well around here (not to mention the MUCH cooler weather than Missouri.
