Remember that one time I met Jenny because I talk to strangers and she seemed like a nice one. Well after that encounter we because internet friends, spent time together on Cayamo 2010 and decided she needed to visit Seattle again. What better time then a weekend she could see her sister as well.

So I drove down to Portland and picked up this pretty girl.

Her sister, Katie Herzig (who's albums you should purchase) was playing a show in Portland so after a delicious dinner and a little drive through town, we headed over to "hang out with the band."

We drove back to Seattle after the show and literally laughed and cried together. We talked about how weird it could have been since we really did not know each other, but we were meant to be friends. It just felt so natural.

Saturday morning we woke up early and cheered on these three amazing triathletes followed by breakfast with my brother.

Can we pause for just a minute to talk about my brother and his love of peanut butter on his waffle. Now I love it to, but he is so committed that he keeps a can of it in his car and is not ashamed to bring it to breakfast with him. You know, just in case they don't have any.
Not only is Jared passionate about his PB, but he's also one heck of a paragliding pilot so I strapped Jenny onto him and sent them off to jump off of Tiger Mountain.

It was a quick flight, but everyone was safe and all smiles. Then it was off to another KH show. Not only is Katie a nice person but Clair and Jordan are real nice people too.

Those Herzig girls...they take such great photos.

Jenny, thanks for taking a risk and coming to visit your internet friend. I'm so glad we are now real life friends. See you this weekend to do it again....literally.

PB in your car is normal!

I love Jared even more than I did before because of this fun PB fact.

It is always the best kind of friend that straps her new friend to her brother to jump out of plane.

Totally acceptable. hee

And a jar of PB is always a good thing - especially Jif. Go Jared.
