Monday morning we were the first car through the Starbucks drive thru. A bit later, we visited my grandpa who recently moved to an assisted living home. And that afternoon we got to catch up with Rachael and Reggie, our newly married friends!
Christmas Eve we enjoyed a leisurely day with Garrick's family, opening stockings and playing games. That evening, we gathered with The Stevens for a gift exchange and potluck dinner.
The day after Christmas (Boxing Day for our UK friends) we were reunited with First Street in Snohomish. Located right on the Snohomish River, there are several boutiques and places to eat. My mom and I went shopping at Joyworks while Garrick and my dad checked out a local distillery. The Snohomish Bakery is another one of our favourite spots, and during lunch we ran into some of our high school friends. On Friday, we walked Greenlake with Garrick's family and checked out a few places in their new neighbourhood.
The time is already passing so fast and we have lots more to share, but until then, enjoy these photos of our special hometown and Greenlake.
