Vacation Recap

Shawn and I went out of town for a week together and just got back. This trip was so much fun! We went to Spokane to visit my family for a few days and then to Seattle where we used to live but haven't been back to for 16 years. I took some pictures that I wanted to share:

This photo is of my sister Jen, my mom, me and my sister Suzanne at lunch
We spent time with my parents, my niece and nephews, my sisters Jen and Suzanne, my brothers-in-law Scotty and Mark, and my brother Kyle.  After not seeing most of them for three years, I was reminded how important family is in my life.  I promise that it won't be this long before we get back to see them all again.

The rest of the pictures are from the Seattle area (I'm not sure why I didn't take more in Spokane - I was probably having too much fun!):
Chimicum Farmstand where they had beautiful veggies:

Pike Place Market:


The very first Starbucks

Gorgeous leaves
Ferry on the Sound
 On our way to the airport, we drove around the University District near my alma mater, the University of Washington, and took a couple of pictures:

My sorority
Our first apartment (the top floor) near the arboretum - it's bigger than it looks! 
There were so many other places we went, but I didn't take pictures, darn it!  I already miss the crisp air, the beautiful leaves and the smell of the ocean. 

We had a fantastic time, and I am certain we will end up back in the Pacific Northwest at some point in the next few years.

Hi Molly! How fun to find your blog today!

My husband and I just got back from Seattle a few weeks ago. The colors on the trees were amazing! My son moved to the Seattle area two years ago for a job. I miss him, but it is fun to visit.

Loved the Pikes Market, and Starbucks photos. I got a coffee at the Starbucks when we were there. Not too long a line either!

You have a lovely blog here! So nice to meet you.
Have a blessed weekend :)
