The Piesinator

The Piesinator

What would the 4th of July be without a good old fashioned pie eating contest?  Rick rose to the occasion at the World of Wine competition for VIP tickets to an upcoming Zinfandel wine festival.  Finishing a respectable third  he said "I may need to practice my technique, that whipped cream was trouble from the start".  He did walk away with 2 tickets though as the winner didn't want them - claiming that he only came for the free pie! 

The competition

But the excitement didn't end with pie...

Seattle celebrated Independence Day with a spectacular fireworks show over Lake Union and it rocked!
