On our last day in WA, Hubs and I enjoyed one last morning run (in the nice cool weather,) the kids enjoyed their morning walk with Grams and Papa (Hopie fell asleep as she did every morning) and we made a quick stop at the Space Needle before heading to the airport.

On Day five we ventured over to a dairy farm to indulge in the BEST ice cream ever.....more bubblegum ice cream for John and birthday cake ice cream for my soon to be birthday girl. Did I mention this was the best ice cream EVER?
We also waved to Canada from across the bay. Mommy slacked on getting our passports so these pictures are the closest we were able to get.
We also learned how to skip rocks into the water today. John LOVED it!

Day three was super cold.....there were no complaints from these Arizona visitors though. We're enjoying every bit of this chilly weather.
The day included...Kids day at the park, pirate ship rides, hotdogs, donuts, snow cones, reading and walks along the beach.
Another fun day in WA!!!!

We woke up on day two to a cold and rainy Seattle day.......and LOVED it! Our first stop was Starbucks (of course) and then onto the Seattle Aquarium. It was definitely the BEST aquarium we've ever been too.....and the kids had a blast. After we tired them out at the aquarium we hoped in the car and drove two hours north to Birch Bay......to our cute little beach condo.

A quick recap of our first day of vacation in Seattle!!!
*Three hour flight to Seattle (first flight for Hopie.) It wasn't terrible but it wasn't great either. My lap child did not want to stay on my lap.....and screamed a few times. However, we did get two compliments from two other passengers on how well the kids did. Little did they know that I was either threatening or bribing them the entire flight.
*First taxi ride for both kids. As John was climbing in the cab he said, "Hmmmmmm. I'm not so sure about this. I've never been in a yellow cab before."
*Fancy Hotel (as John would say) and yummy restaurants.
*Pike's Market and throwing fish!
*Dancing little girl to Blue Grass street musicians......all the tourists were videoing her.
*Tired little girl who napped for two hours while we enjoyed Starbucks.
*Lots of yummy fruit from the market.....including itty bitty grapes (which were the kids favorite.)
*Mariners baseball game
It was a PERFECT day and a PERFECT start to our vacation.
