Another Saturday in February, another tea party. A few photos:

Another year, another stress-filled tea party. Not for the guests, but certainly for Cole and me.
A few photos:
Last night we hosted yet another Seahawks party. We had a full house (25 or so adults plus kids), great food, excellent company.
What we didn’t have was a win. The Seahawks lost to the Arizona Cardinals 39-32. We’re 4-5 now — in four of those losses we had the lead in the fourth quarter. And we’re effectively four games behind the Cardinals now with just seven games remaining in the regular season.
Oh, and we also didn’t get many photos.
Today the Jenkins fam joined roughly 104 of our closest friends for the first-ever Laurelhurst-ish Day Out at Emerald Downs for the Kentucky Derby. It was an outing I conceived of way back in November — and it went off mostly without a hitch.
We kicked things off with an hour-long pre-function at casa de Jenkins:
Lots – and I mean LOTS — of mint juleps were on the menu.
From there we boarded two coaches for the ride out to Emerald Downs. Our driver took a wrong turn and the 36-minute drive turned into an hour one (there’s the hitch). We arrived at Emerald Downs at about 1 pm to perfect weather and a fantastic day of pony watching. American Pharoah won the Kentucky Derby in Louisville — the Jenkins fam had most of its money on the disappointing Dortmund.
All in all a fantastic and memorable day.
The beginning of a tradition? We shall see.
Another week before Valentine’s Day, another Mother/Daughter Tea Party at casa de Jenkins.

Last night the Jenkins fam was joined by 20+ or so people for our second straight Super Bowl party. (Last year’s.)
It did not end well.
Down 28-24 with 30 or so seconds to go, the Seahawks had the ball on the Patriots two yard line.
An obvious run play. Or not.
Russell Wilson’s interception gave the Pats their fourth Super Bowl title in the Brady/Belichick era.
The result — and the call — broke a good many hearts.
Maybe or maybe not. But it certainly contributed to one of the worst nights I can remember.
Yesterday the family Jenkins ventured north to the Lynnwood Rec Center for Finn’s sixth birthday party. It was a bit late — I was in San Diego the weekend of his birthday and Rhonda was in Los Angeles last weekend — but it was better late than never.
