A trip to the city

This weekend Jonathan took our family away to seattle, it was so fun especially since the weather decided to be sunny for once in 3 months. We had a great relaxing time with the girls as well as many fun adventures. The first day we took them down to the pier and Emma rode the carousel at least 5 times, we sat and enjoyed the beautiful view as we ate our colossal cones. Saturday we walked all around pikes place and enjoyed some great treats, chocolate caramel apples, chicken gyros and of course the infamous pineapple bread. I know it sounds funny that all of our "enjoying" was centered around food, but hey whats life without enjoying some good treats every once and a wile ??? After a long day of walking we went home to relax in the jacuzzi. It was very different going away with two kids, of course we enjoyed them every second but it was definitely a lot more work. I think it will really make me appreciate the next time Jonathan and I go away by ourselves so much more! Anyway its such a blessing being able to go away and enjoy each other, I like when the girls get to be with their daddy for 2 or 3 days straight.

  4. Sweet! It's always fun to go away with your family. Especially for our children to spend time with their Daddy's and to get his undivided attention. Looks like you guys had a good time.
