Happy 2014! Garrick just left to play football at Snohomish High School with friends, and I'm enjoying a lazy day on my parents' couch.
A highlight of 2013 is our recent trip to Whidbey Island. Garrick and I cycled around the island for our 3rd anniversary, and we loved the views, beaches, and seaside towns. So, when planning our trip to the USA, we definitely wanted to visit this special place.
We caught an early ferry with my parents, sister and brother-in-law, and nephews. Seeing the world through the eyes of children is a fun and tiring blessing. We loved every minute spent with them!
After the ferry, this was our first glimpse of the beach. I thought there may be sea glass, but could only find shells, rocks, and driftwood. Bella, my parents' miniature dachshund, even joined us for the day. The boys threw rocks, Garrick and Kenneth played 'baseball', and we all took in the views and Vitamin D.
Back in the car, we stopped at a viewpoint and then made our way to Ebey State Park to hike the trail along the bluff.
Next stop: Food! Coupeville is a quaint town and home to the Knead and Feed. I think about this tuna salad often.
After shopping and a coffee break in Langley, we piled in the car and ferried back home. This is just one of many great day trips to do in Washington, and we're thankful for the memories made.
