Awesome time with Momma!

Mom and I spent the week getting the rest of the house put together, shopping and having fun catching up and just being together. We took a ferry ride to Port Orchard on Wednesday afternoon. Mom had not been on a ferry in many years and we enjoyed the trip and having lunch at mom's favorite authors' tea room. The second two pictures are from Golden Gardens in Ballard. It was such a beautiful day form Mom's birthday on Friday. I am so thankful for such great weather while mom was here, with the exception of one rainy day, but then again we are in Seattle.

All Settled, YAY!

After a little over one week we are all settled into our townhouse. Now that we have a guest bedroom...please come visit us!!! Bill is really excited about his birthday grill from his parents! We have a lot of grilling to do:)

Week of moving!

This week has been filled with many adventures for Bill and I. We got the keys to our rental townhouse on Monday night and took our 1966 mustang over to park it in the garage, but it was 6 inches too long and the battery died! Well we were talking a bit loudly when our neighbors came out and said we were being loud and woke her baby up. Of course we apologized greatly and assured her that it would not happen again, she was not very nice. Tuesday we checked the mail at the new place and the key got stuck in the mailbox. Wednesday the movers come and our couch would not fit upstairs and in the great attempt there ended up being a hole in the wall-this has already be patched by handy man Bill. Thursday we had our friends’ Escape so we could make a couple trips to get the rest of our stuff from the apartment. I was trying to get around our other neighbors garage when boom I hit their garage!!! Thank goodness the SUV was not hurt but it did take small chuck out of the garage. When we got home last night I talked to the owner of whose garage I hit and come to find out he was one of the builders and already fixed it. He was oh so nice too! What an adventure! Shopping here we come!

New home in Seattle

Welcome to our new home in Seattle! Bill and I will be moving in on Wednesday! We have decided to rent for another year and get to know more neighborhoods within Seattle before we settle down on buying a house. The townhouse is 3 bedrooms with 2 1/2 baths. We are very excited!!! 

Victoria B.C.

Bill and I took a long weekend trip to Victoria for the Rotary District Conference last weekend. It was an awesome trip and felt like we were in Europe. We took long walks around the island and ate lots of great food, especially gelato! 
Tea time in our hotel, The Empress. Bill and I decided to skip the tea since it was pretty expensive and we were able to enjoy the room without tea.

The government building of Victoria.

Our hotel! It was so awesome! I felt like we were staying in a palace and I was a princess!

Amazing gardens with so many beautiful flowers. Plus the weather was so sunny and warm
