Family

Adam and I've been having a great time with family at our house lately. Adam's Grandmother from Alabama came to visit for the first time last month. It was so wonderful to have her here and to share Seattle and the Northwest with her.

We took the ferry over to Bainbridge Island to visit the Bloedel Reserve. Adam and I had heard about the 150 acre Reserve, but had never been there. It was amazing and we will definitely return...



We were lucky because Adam's Mom also came to visit at the same time from Colorado, it was really great to spend so much time together. (Thanks to my Mom for the photo below :) )



After Adam's Mom and Grandmother left we had my side of the family over for a big dinner at our house. My cousins, Azure and Mike cooked an amazing 6 course meal for us... and we drank wine made by Adam's Uncle Howard, how fantastic!


My Aunt JoAnne brought all the old family photo albums, as well as over 30 years of my Grandma's Christmas letters that we read and reminisced over.



Such great food!!!

My cousin Matt is amazing at the Rubik's Cube... he finished the one below in a minute and a half!


One of the best things that my Aunt brought to our house was the telegraph (below) that my Grandpa sent to my Great Grandparents to tell them my Dad had been born... so cool.

Thanks to all of our family for spending time with us, we love you!
