Seattle, Washington

Seattle, Washington

Following our venture to North Cascades National Park, we traveled a few hours to Renton, Washington, where we were reunited with the Barsness clan, who we also spent some glorious days with earlier in the Summer in Red Lodge, Montana.  

Upon our arrival, the kids were thrilled to play together again, and we hit the road to the pool to squeeze in some swim time before dinner.

We had dinner together on the Barsness’ back deck, and played outside until bedtime.

The next morning, we woke up and headed into Downtown Seattle.  Grace, Justin, and I had all been to Seattle before, but it was the boys’ first time.

We started our day off at the “Gum Wall.”  The boys were disgusted.

Then we headed to Pike’s Market, and had fun checking out all the goodies there.  Quinn thought it smelled really bad.

We saw the first-ever Starbucks...

We walked from Pike’s Market to Seattle Center, where we met up with Cam and Ollie, and enjoyed playing at the amazing park there and checking out the Space Needle.

We rode the Monorail back to our car at Pike’s Market, and bought a whole salmon to grill for dinner that night.  The kids loved watching the guys throwing the fish!

We returned to the Barsness’ house for some good playtime, and a great dinner together outside.  The kids so enjoy being together, and so do the adults!

We had the girls in the RV for a slumber party, and the boys slept inside together.  

It was such a fabulous rendezvous with this sweet family.  It’s not lost on us that they truly love us, welcoming us not only once, but TWICE, on this journey.  We love them all so much, and are so grateful for them.
