Change of Plans

Ok, so we decided to buy instead of build. So as of Saturday we are now residents of Daybreak. And here is a tour of the new pad.

*Warning: I did not clean up before taking these pictures and I still have a few more decorations need to be hung**

The next couple of posts of our family trip up North. Enjoy.

The views from the boat were beautiful. I kept looking for whales and only managed to see a few dolphins and a couple of jellyfish.

Kenna met a little Aisan boy who kept trying to get her to laugh, but she only stared at him.

There wasn't much to Nanaimo. It is a logging town on Vancouver Island. The only cool thing was this park. You can't see, but it is huge.


We spent two days in Seattle on each end of the cruise. I really love Seattle. I could live there.

We visited Pike's Place Market, where I ate the most delicious apple I have ever tasted. We had some awesome Seafood and saw some pretty strange people.

We visited the pier and enjoyed the sunshine and watching the ferries come and go.

While the boys went to a baseball game, the girls enjoyed the Aquarium and the Nordstrom Rack.

Kenna is petting Starfish and Sea Urchins

Victoria and Butchart Gardens

For those of you who haven't heard of Butchart Gardens ( I was one of them), it is one of the places you really need to see. In the 1900's it used to be a concrete pit and then made into a garden and has been growing ever since. Check out the website.

Chilly Jordanelle weekend

We spent a couple of nights in Jordanelle. It was pretty chilly at night so we just hung out by the fire. Saturday was nice so we rode the Alpine Slide. It was so fun.

Sneaky Girl.

Rare Snuggle moment

Riding the lift.

Kenna laughed the whole way down.
