JP and I both grew up on the West Coast - he in Oregon, and myself in Idaho and Washington. We have been wanting to show the girls what the Pacific Ocean looks like, and we also have several dear families in the region that we wanted to catch up with. So we booked an (almost) two week vacation to the West Coast, and we packed every day full of exciting things to see and do. I am still trying to round up all of our pictures from various cameras and cell phones, so I will post about our trip in several sections.
|Our new suitcases - all lined up and ready to roll!|
|Waiting at the airport - we did this a lot!|
We reached our destination of Poulsbo after dinner, and had a great time relaxing with our friends there. The following day, we headed to the harbor in Poulsbo, puttered around the shops in town, ate lunch by the bay, took the kids to the playground, and went out for ice cream.
At this stop, we also:
- Spent the day at Fay Bainbridge Beach on Bainbridge Island.
|Seattle from the ferry|
- Hiked through the gorgeous Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island.
