Vacation pics....

We spent 2 weeks on our boat in South Puget Sound (Washington state) in July this year....
There are lots of pics, and no crafts on this one. ETA-there's a crafty post from today below! My friend Natalie would've had these all on scrapbook layouts by now, but alas- I'm lucky to have even downloaded them!
It was great right from the start- this is our first day in Penrose- we spent several there!

Even though there's no proof, even I jumped in that cold (COLD) water- it was pretty hot & I hadn't seen any jellyfish for awhile...

on the beach...
the one below has Cory holding a moon snail- we must've seen nearly a dozen!
we towed the little boat grandma & grandpa gave Hadley...

This isn't the best pic of the boat, but that's Mt. Rainier in the background. I don't think I could ever tire of seeing that peak- and I see it everyday I drive home, much closer than this!

yep, that close to the eagles- something else I'll never tire of!

We moved on to Jerrol's cove on Harstene Island-

We drank the bottle of wine we'd brought back from New Zealand- we'd been saving it for our 10 year anniversary. It was great to reminisce about that winery....
Those are the Olympic mountains. Did I mention how beautiful I find our area to be?

On to Olympia...

dancing at the farmer's market

enjoying lakefair rides...

winning 'shiny-tongue'

that's the state capitol in the background

heading to Poulsbo, we always end up having to watch out for the ferries!

Hadley loves playing at the little park right next to the marina...

looks like a Hawaii sunset, I'm told! :D

to prove I was there....


  1. Every one looks so happy and relaxed, oh the wonders of vacation! Beautiful pictures, looks like a beautiful place.

  2. Ha!! Not a chance! You might think I scrap all the time (and maybe I do?!) but what you probably don't realise is that every time I post something, I probably finished it at least two weeks previously. So I'll give you a little while longer before I expect to see some craftiness back on here!! LOL :-)

    Meanwhile, looks like you had a fun holiday. Looks really beautiful.

  3. Oh my word, what a beautiful vacation you had. The scenery is spectacular! And might I add that you, Cory and Miss Hadley are a gorgeous family.

    Thanks for sharing a little bit of your vacation.

  4. Darling pictures. I sure love the sunset ones. Even the water looks pink:)

  5. What gorgeous pictures. What treasures! It looks like fun and so beautiful!! What a gorgeous family!

  6. Looks like you had a wonderful vacation. Your pictures and family are so beautiful. After spending some time with you and Hadley you can really se her personality come out in the photos! You are blessed!

  7. Ava and I just read about moon snails today! I love the pic of Cory and Hadley walking on the beach. Precious.


I appreciate you taking the time to come by- and your comments make my day! Thank you!!
