Sorry for the quiet blog...We have been on vacation for the last couple weeks. Freckles and I took a spontaneous trip up to Washington to see my Dad and Mama in Olympia, Washington for a week and our son the following week. We caught an early flight out so we would have more daylight to spend with Freckles, Grandparents. Poor Freckles didn't remember flying in a plane when she was younger...So the anticipation and unknown crept in with a bit of fear when we took off. I held her hand and looked into her eyes filled with crocodile tears and tried to comfort her with words, that the Lord will keep us safe and to trust in Him. After a while
she relaxed and actually thought it was pretty cool.
We arrived into SeaTac where my parents awaited our arrival. We were tired...but excited to visit and see the sights. It was a bit of a drive to Olympia...Where my parents have retired. A lovely bay community with breathtaking views, wildlife and great weather...considering it rains there a lot. We so happened to be there at the perfect time of the Summer. We settled in and took a stroll through their neighborhood, with the water just walking distance away. Freckles and her Grampa embraced as we walked down by the bay...It was the sweetest sight.
In just that short span we encountered a pack of seals, jellyfish and crabs...Just the things you would expect to see in Washington. We walked down the pier where a couple was crabbing...They invited us to pull up a couple of the nets...It was fun watching my girl enjoy this activity...which she was apprehensive to do at first. She did an awesome job and pulled in several, throwing back the small ones of course.
