hey Washington, we love you!

My best friend moved to Washington a couple months ago, and when she told me the news, we planned my visit asap! I wanted to go at least once before I had to buy a seat for Mia on the plane! I felt guilty about going on this trip once Eric lost his job, but luckily the tickets were non-refundable because this was just the getaway I needed to simmer down and regroup. I came home feeling recharged and having more faith that we can totally handle this set back.
I've got quite the story about our flight, but I'll save that for another post :) I will say that I was totally nervous to be flying with Mia by myself, but she acted like she'd been flying all her life. She was such an angel! She slept on me (heaven!!) no problem, both ways! Spending the weekend with Jaicee was amazing and just what I needed! The kids all played great together and Mark and Jaicee were the best hosts and loved showing off their beautiful, new home state! They packed our weekend full of so much fun... I'll let the photos do the talkin'!
This is literally right across the street from their home.
Anacortes reminded me a lot of Salem, MA! We couldn't resist taking this photo of our little monkeys :)

She loved it!
These kids, ha ha! Best friends for life... just like their momma's!
This beach is on the other side of their neighborhood... beautiful!
Bye, Washington!
Thank you SO much for an amazing weekend Mark, Jaicee, Paysen and Aspyn! We miss you all too much already!

I've been dying to go to Washington for the longest time! I'd love to go to Seattle and walk around Pike's Place Market and see the space needle and all that fun stuff. These pictures just make me want to go MORE. So gorgeous!

I'm obsessed with the kissy picture on the beach! Definitely looks like an amazing trip!!

Jane said...

How funny! I thought that marina in the first picture looked awfully familiar, and I knew by the second picture you were in Anacortes. I live in Anacortes, it's such a small little town it's funny to think anyone comes on vacation here. :)
