A Visit to Washington

   We recently visited our children in the beautiful state of Washington. I wanted to share more of the scenery with you today. If you ever get the opportunity to visit the Pacific Northwest, I highly recommend it. It was a jam-packed week of fun and family.

   Spending the day in Leavenworth, Washington is like a trip to a Bavarian village. It is a quaint town with the Cascade Mountains as a backdrop. You can enjoy authentic German cuisine and they are famous for their Oktoberfest and Christmas celebrations.
Jelly fish at the Point Defiance zoo and aquarium
   We enjoyed going to the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium. Their aquarium was beautiful and I thought this jelly fish exhibit was fascinating.

   I shared some of the photos from the Skagit Valley Tulip and Daffodil Festival to honor Dory last week. There were just so many incredible views that I couldn’t resist sharing a few more.
Our beautiful granddaughter
I love my granddaughter with all of my heart.

   The most precious sight to us was our adorable granddaughter, Emery. We got lots of hugs and kisses from her but not nearly enough. Hopefully, we will be together again very soon.

    1. I am so sorry. I don't know why you would get a McAfee warning. I'll investigate. ☺

  21. Wow, I can't believe how charming this village is and how gorgeous everything was there. We loved our trip to Seattle & seeing the beautiful mountain views. But the most beautiful view here is clearly Emery's gorgeous face!! So glad you had this time with her & your kids.
