My hiatus is for a good reason. Mom & Dad came to town! They rented a truck and drove some furniture from Los Alamos all the way here (31 hours straight, I might add). We had a great week spending quality time together and eating. I think I gained 10 pounds last week 🙂 Some photos of our adventures…
Cleaning up some of the furniture
Watch Out for the dip in the driveway!
I had to drag them along for an errand. The nursery got a new shipment of the hydrangeas we wanted to plant…we needed 3. As you can see, they are NOT small.
Poor Dad, we made him sit in the back with the plants.
One night we hiked to the beach at Carkeek Park just in time for Sunset
Oops, it got a little dark on the way home. Notice Scott grabbed an apple from the orchard in the middle of the park.
As a thank you for all of their help getting this beautiful furniture to us, we sent them to the San Juan Islands. Notice, there was a tag along who looks a lot like me!
We went to Lime Kiln State Park to look for whales (none to be found)
But we did meet this guy. He was snorty and fat.

The next day we toured the island a bit and went to Roche Harbor. Mom & Dad sitting in “the throne of Jupiter”
Enough said in the sign…
This was our transportation around the island. Nice, huh? Kidding, it was a beautiful yacht occupied by 4 people, while we think it could have slept 50! There were 5 people just cleaning the dinghy in the back!
In the afternoon, we picked up sandwiches and camped out at Lime Kiln State Park again, hoping for whales, but really just getting in some good relaxation. Dad & I hiked to Dead Man’s Bay.
He decided he’d rather go home.
But Mom wanted to buy this house.
The last day in the islands, we headed to Orcas Island (Sharla & Jake’s favorite island). We had a great time, but forgot to take any pictures!! Here is one of us eating lunch at the ferry terminal. As you can tell, the weather was sorry. Darn that Western Washington weather.
Bye Bye Orcas!
Check out mom’s beautiful bracelet! She wore it the ENTIRE trip. We decided she should showcase it while on the ferry.
The trip is over L We had such an incredible week. Thank you for everything – you truly are the best parents ever! (we’re just waiting for that puppy now J)
Love you both.
