First Visit to the Pacific Northwest

We finally made it out to Washington and Oregon to visit very dear friends and family. Unfortunately (or fortunately) Dave and I had such a lovely time visiting that we didn't take many pics of our friends and no pics of family. Sorry all -- we will do better next time. Amber did take some great pics and has an awesome post on her blog, Planet Silas...

Here are Amber, Alden, and Silas enjoying a view of the sound...


We were all as excited as Alex to tour Bainbridge Island, where Amber, Dtew, and Silas used to live (They now live not to far away from there)...


Alden loved all the sheep! And sang the song, "Baa, Baa Black Sheep" for most of the trip...


All three boys were great on the ferry to Seattle... they especially had fun looking for, um, sharks.


Si is taking a picture of us!




Hi Seattle!


Enjoying a fountain in the rain...


Here are a few pics from our glorious drive from Washington to Oregon...








We made it to Seaside, OR!


Alden was so excited to feed the seals!


Brrr!


It was a lovely (even if cold, windy, snowy, and rainy) vacation!
