Z FAMILY VISITS
my sister came for a visit way back in august, i think. gosh i’m so far behind. we’ve been having too much fun in seattle and i’ve been slacking on documenting it. i don’t know how long we are here, it could be forever it could be a few years. i’m going to make a better effort at documenting our life here. if for nothing other than being able to look back at these years in this city with these babes and of course for you mom and kellie! my sister lives in orange county and was the first of our visitors. we were so excited to have them come up. my kids look at her kids like their own sibling and have so much fun with them. we took them around the city and did all the touristy things. of course we had only been here a month at that time so i really feel like they need to come back up and i can give them an even better tour of the city!
the gum wall! because you can’t come to seattle and not see the gum wall. they just cleaned it all off a month or so ago. it needed a cleaning it was pretty gross.
theses girls!! i can’t take it, they are so cute together and i think they look like sister. we wandered volunteer park. the kids climbed the trees for hours. such a beautiful park.
we made a trip down to portland. ate tacos at porque no because why not?! wandered the city for a while and then headed back. portland is great but really seattle is better!! i say that with love. lots of it.
a trip to golden gardens for a fire in the pit and dinner at sunset. i can’t believe the kids get in that icy water and really this beach is nothing compared to where my sister lives but hey its close by and watching the sailboats is pretty great. you can also see an orca every so often.
the mother load of all fountains! the international fountain at the seattle center is so much fun. initially jack was a little nervous but he eventually warmed up and was in heaven. the water shoots something like 120 feet in the air. its pretty crazy and a great place to spend a warm afternoon.
just look at that face! so happy!! andrea come back and visit! i promise i’ll show you even more of this great city. or just move here i’d love that even more. i know california’s weather can’t be beat but seattle summers are where its at.
