a very late update

Well, I'm a little behind on the ol blog here. I got back from WA . . . how has it already been 2 weeks! My how time flies. My plan was to do a trip post with pictures and all the fun stuff I did with my family right after I got back. Well. . . obviously that didn't happen. Oh well, what difference does 2 weeks make anyhow.

Here's my trip . . . in photos. Enjoy!

 It was a beautiful day for flying.
I always have to grab clam chowder when I'm in Seattle. It's the best!

There's a sweet story that goes with this doll. My Mummu was given this doll when she was 5 years old. I've loved it ever since I was a little girl. She told me a long, long time ago that she would give her to me when she turned 100. I proceeded to ask her every visit afterwards if she was 100 yet? She would laugh and say, no, not yet! The doll is now 80 years old. Her name's Lulu and I'm honored to have her. I can't wait to pass her along to my grand-daughter one day. 

 Picnic with my sisters, niece, and nephews.
 Goofing around town with my baby sis and bro. They're pretty cute/cool/fun.
 Crepe Saturday. They were delish!
Jhobes treated me to a Thai lunch date. He's the sweet, kindest, most honorable, generous, servant of a brother. Husband material, if ya know what I mean. 
 A very belated birthday date with the beautiful Molls at our favorite spot, Casper Fry.
 Couer Coffee date.

 "Study Date" with Molls. We did manage to get a few things done. 
 My niece is adorable, and has mini vintage clogs.
 We celebrated her completing 100 lessons in her school reading book by a family outing to Froyo. 
My Dad is the best. He had just returned from a 2 week mission trip to the Ukraine, flew into MN, flew all the way to WA so he could see me 24 hours, and then got back on a plane to MN. It was so great to see him!
 The beautiful Spokane Falls is perfect in the spring. I had forgotten.

The girls, back from their trip.

 Dad with his 4 youngest girls. I love them all to pieces.
 Shoe love much?
 Classic Ukki. 90 years old and still the hardest working man I know. Cute too!
 My last coffee date with this girl for at least 8 months. She's getting ready to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. I'm gonna miss her laugh and joy in the mean time. 
My home, for 15 years of my life. 
 Sisters. There is really nothing better.

I'll be back soon, I promise. Happy Friday to you!
