Where Have We Been?

   You might have noticed that I haven’t been on social media very much over the past week. I have a very good excuse. We went on vacation and spent a week with our children in Washington. It was seven days of fun-filled adventures.
Granddaughter with her smash birthday cake
   Emery, our precious granddaughter, celebrated her first birthday while we were there. I made her a “smash” cake and she loved it. Can you believe that she is already one? She is absolutely the best little girl in our world.
Daffodils at the Skagit Valley Tulip and Daffodil Festival
   We visited the Skagit Valley Tulip and Daffodil Festival. It was incredible and smelled heavenly with more flowers than I've ever seen in my life! I will share more photos of the flowers on Dory’s special day this Friday.
Snoqualmie Falls in Washington
   After a trip to Leavenworth, Washington over the weekend, we stopped at the Snoqualmie Falls. It was a beautiful day to spend time with our loved ones. 
   There is nothing better than knowing your children are fantastic adults and have wonderful spouses to share their lives. We are so blessed ♥ 
   I will share more photos and fun this week while I play catch-up on visiting everyone’s blogs.

  27. I don't get on social media too much, so I didn't miss you there. LOL. But I did notice most of your blog posts this week were short and sweet, so thought something must be up!
    It looks like you had a wonderful trip, combining family with some beautiful sightseeing. Good for you!
