Your daughter did awesome, ZBB. She seemed much calmer than Nathan, too. He's a bit of a high energy kid and likes to move. . . a lot. Sitting still during extended dinner conversations and such, well, it wouldn't be pretty.

BTW, did we have a day we were thinking of doing this? My anniversary is on the 18th of February but other than that the days are pretty open.

We took her to dinner with us starting at an early age -- so she learned how to act in a restaurant. We've had a few times where she wouldn't settle down, but overall have had very good luck with her in public...

Nathan does . . . ok. And we've taken him out since he was young, too.

He was a little better when he was younger but seems to have regressed. We're trying to work with him more on this. He's not as bad as many kids but not where we'd like him to be.

He's also a little unpredictable as sometime he's just wound up for some reason.

So - where would you like to go?

I'm coming from Everett....
Lup - Shoreline?
Kognito - Monroe?

We could do something downtown or ????? More towards Woodinville or the East Side to be in the middle for us.

There is a pretty good Italian restaurant in Woodinville that I went to a few weeks back....

http://www.italianissimoristorante.com/

Very nice... But maybe a bit formal for us.
There's also Redhook in Woodinville too.

Balance of new furniture arriving today and tomorrow, this weekend we should be moved out of the RV. So it is pretty crazy for us until after president's holiday.

We are still learning the area in regards to restaurants, So I am open to anything/anywhere

Yeah, I'm in Kenmore which is pretty much at the same latitude as Shoreline but halfway between there and Woodinville.

Hm. Any objections to the Mill Creek Town Center? Sounds like there are a number of restaurants we could hit within a 30 second walk once we're there. And it's pretty central.

Map of Mill Creek vs. Kenmore, Monroe, and Everett

After presidents day would work best, here, too. Oh, and I think Monday, Wednesday or Friday would work best but I'd need to confirm with my wife's schedule.

Speaking of which. . . I'll probably be coming solo so my wife can stay home and watch our son and get him to bed on time. I'm cool if you guys would like to invite your wives or just make it a guy's night out.

We are all moved out of the RV. (drove it down to Chehalis yesterday to consign it)

This week is a little busy. Went to the home show last week down at the Clink, and lots of contractors are scheduled for roof/siding quotes this week.

Other than this I am ready for a get together, and I have a bunch of questions for you guys now that we are residents of WA

Ah, sweet.

Congrats on the completed move-in and congrats on getting the Volvo to the consignment place. Out of curiosity, with only a single rear axle do you think you'll have difficulty selling it?

Anyways, was there a time and date you guys were thinking of? I can do Monday, Wednesday or Friday unless something particular comes up that I don't know about right now. Tues and Thursdays are no-go for the next 2 months. And I think I can do weekends, too.

No the RV is at the consignment lot. I have interested folks already for the Volvo, as it is all setup to haul large, heavy RV's

I just can't sell it till I know the RV is gone. If the consignment lot can't sell the RV, I don't even have a plan B yet for the RV, but until I know I don't have to move our RV anymore, I can't sell the Volvo. (I have a 36K offer in my pocket for the Volvo)
