Such a Great Week

Took zero photos of our Whidbey trip (but there's an album full on Facebook). I had such a great time and I'm so grateful to the kids for taking me to one of my fave places to celebrate my birthday. 

Here's a list of some of my personal highlights:

Picking blackberries and digging clams. Whoosh, it was 1964 again and my beloved grandparents and parents were right there in spirit. 

Terrible games. Cards Against Humanity should be outlawed. But so funny. 

Looking out at Puget Sound every day. Instant zen. 

Double Bluff beach. Great dog park!

Ferry rides. Never get old. 

Whidbey Island Coffee Tour 2014. Some good joe to be found. 

Buying a touristy sweatshirt at The Star Store. 

Mariners game. Fun to see the Davis gang, and fun that the Ms are good this year. But I really hate The Archer. 


Blackberry pie. 

A visit from Susna and Tate, with her pal Parker. Nothing sillier than 6th grade girls. Or sweeter. 

Knitting at a vacation house is extra relaxing. 

Deer in the yard. 

Mussels gathered on the beach, cooked w wine butter and garlic. Ambrosia. 

Getting to spend precious time with the people I love the most. That's priceless.
