Sounders 8 Years Ago and Today!

These first two photos are from a post that I wrote 8 years ago!

What fun for Seattle last night and my sons, nephew David and friend Beau! They attended the Inaugural game for the Seattle Sounders and they got to see them win with a sell-out crowd who were very loud. Seattle fans are known for cheering loudly.

I really enjoy seeing my sons together having a good time!

Now this afternoon, eight years later who would have guessed that we would win again with the same score 3-1 and against the same team, the New York Red Bulls! A great season home opener! The sun was shining and I think I got a sunburn. Glorious views on the way to the stadium and on the way home, too. Laura took these next photos with her phone.

On the way to the stadium you could see Mt. Rainier in the background with the two stadiums and the wheel in the foreground.

Before the game started they unveiled our latest banner, MLS Cup Champs 2016!

Laura captured the sun rays shining down on the field. After several days of rain with a very few sunny days in between this was a real treat for all of us.

Here we are happy season ticket holders for the 9th year! Thank you Sounders for making our day in the sun a whole lot of fun!

Things about Spring that I enjoy…

Easter, Renewal, Strawberries, Flowers, Bird Nests, and Soccer!

Happy Spring Everyone. May this be the year of fresh revival in your Spirit, Soul, Heart and Mind!

  1. What a fun time with family! I’m so happy for you, Ellen. We had such a good church service yesterday…a young man who was filling the pulpit for our pastor who was out of town. Talk about spring time being a time of revival! I love strawberries, too! 🙂

  2. Oh my. So much to chat about since I just caught up with your last few blog posts! So I am thinking that your new granddaughter has arrived by now?!! Can’t wait to “meet” her myself as you share her with us!

    I loved reading the stories of your life. It is so good to look back and see His grace in our lives. (Plus, I adore looking at old family pictures . . . mine, yours, or anyone else’s!)

  3. How neat that you keep on year after year. This year we were in Seattle and saw many fans wearing their scarves heading to the game. We enjoyed walking the streets of Seattle that day.
