Oops. Just haven't been in the blogging mood lately. But I'm going to start blogging again, I promise. It's just we haven't done anything to the house lately, which is mainly what I blog about.
Anywho... In JULY (yeah, that long ago, yikes) we made our first trip up to WA to visit my sister-in-law as well as our 3 beautiful nieces. We went for Bella's birthday mainly, but it was also over 4th of July. We had such a wonderful time.
The first day we went to Mulkateo Beach. We had Ivars fish and chips, and ice cream and then hung out on the beach.
We watched the sun set (at 10:30PM... weird!). It was gorgeous.
The next day we went out to this mountain (not sure the name of the mountain) but they have these ice caves. It's where the snow on the side of the mountain melts and the waterfalls come down and make these caves out of the ice on the base of the mountain. Pretty cool!
The next day we kind of just chilled out and hung around the house (we stayed with SIL). We made Dinosaur crafts for Bella's birthday party. All and all a nice relaxing day.
The next day Hubs, Romeo, Kaya and I went down to Seattle and took a ferry over to Bainbridge Island. Taking the ferry was a great experience. I loved it. The Island, eh. It wasn't really anything special. There wasn't much to do. We just walked around a bit, had lunch, and then came back.
Here's the Ferry we took. BIG boat. Which is good, because that means no motion sickness!
Bye Bye Seattle...
Hello..... Island?? Um... where are the palm trees? It was a little weird to see Pine trees on and ISLAND. But this is Washington I guess. :/
The next day was the 4th of July. Which was AWESOME in WA. I am convinced there's no other way to do the 4th of July, than in WA. The husbands went down to the indian reservation where they have "Boom City" which is where they sell tons and tons of fireworks. And i'm not talking sparklers. I'm talking REAL fireworks.
Here's what they came back with... boys!
Here are the girls. I just love this picture. Bella is so silly. This is what she did when Uncle Brian told her to give Kaya a hug. Don't I have the cutest nieces?
And this is the best picture I got of the fireworks at night. Unfortunately, as I think I may have mentioned before, my camera doesn't do well at night. If I take the flash off, it makes everything blury. It has other settings, but the only one that really works is the auto flash.
I'm going to say that's part one of our WA trip, and I'm going to end here and say I really really want to live there.
...to be continued.
