No "walk of shame" this time.  Ella was the perfect travel companion this time around.  I think it definitely helped that we had direct flights and stayed within our own timezone. 

We--Ella, my husband, and I--had a wonderful time in Seattle.  We had gorgeous weather for most of the weekend, but I admit that I was glad to have some of the gloomy rain which is so characteristic of the Pacific Northwest this morning.  It was just enough to remind me why I left Oregon for sunny Arizona.

Since I had to work on Saturday afternoon and throughout the whole day on Sunday, we weren't able to do and see (and eat) all that I was hoping to get around to.  We saw a lot, but I definitely wouldn't mind going back sometime.  And after eight years in the desert, I can't get enough good, fresh seafood.

Here are some pictures from our trip:

Our next family trip won't be until late July when my whole family heads to Hawaii.  Something tells me that life will be very different when we're travelling with a ten-month old!  We got by just fine with the sling for three days...but we're definitely going to need to bring a stroller for our next trip.

Today's blessing is being home and rested.  It really was a nice trip--even the work part was enjoyable.  And it's also nice to know that we have the next weekend at home to ourselves.


  1. Looks like a wonderful trip! Can't wait for Hawaii!

  2. I love Seattle! Glad you had a good time.


I love to hear what you think!
