Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig..
So. We came home 2 days early. For a variety of reasons.
Getting lost in downtown Seattle - on arrival.
The rain. The Cold.
I forgot to pack underwear. (But I made sure the kids had theirs!)
My son's teeth hurt.
Female issues. Please let me go home, lie down and hide for a few days.
However. Every cloud has a silver lining.
Here are the highlights:
Seeing distant relatives again
Easter Day at Eric & Piper's
Sami Face Painting everyone she could get her paints on!
The Pacific Science Center & The Butterfly House
Riding the Monorail
The kids beach combing
Making Carrot Cake - ala the Pioneer Woman's Recipe
Meeting Sandi, her critters and playing with her Copics
Starbucks stops along the way.
And that the kids seemed to have good time.
My apologies to my Portland trip hosts... I promise to come visit another time! I know you are disappointed. But, I needed to get home - mainly for 'personal reasons'.
I'll post more photos later... I'm tired. Wiped out. Need to sleep for a few days.
