Washington, the Evergreen state

Just a few pictures from our time in Washington last month. It's such a beautiful place and we're excited to move there eventually. 
While we were there, Steve and I were able to go and look at apartments we might possibly live in when we move up there. It makes everything seem a little more real, even if it is still pretty far off. 
We were also able to spend quality time with Steve's family. We did lots of different things but one of them was renting us bikes so we could all go on a family bike ride! I couldn't remember the last time I was on a bike. Luckily, it's true, you never forget how to ride a bike because it had seriously been years since I was last on one but you wouldn't have been able to tell. Only my bum could tell...yeah, bike seats are not the most comfortable thing to sit on for 8 miles. We rented bikes right there in downtown Spokane and then started our ride from there. We rode through downtown Spokane and then up into the hills. It was sooo beautiful! I love it there! Cole loved the little trailer Grandma and Grandpa rented for him! He eventually laid himself on the floor of it so he could fall asleep and it was really cute to see him peek out. Silly baby!
And I only have pictures of Cole with his Uncle Craig, but Cole had a blast with everyone there! I think he's a bit bored being home now and not having so many rooms to roam and new things to get into!
Thank you to Steve's family for their generosity and for making it such a wonderful time. We are lucky kids, to be sure :)


  1. Oh, these pictures are so dreamy :) looks like such a perfect family vacation. I especially love the ones of Cole peeking out of his bike trailer :) He is so so cute.

  2. That looks like a wonderful time. I'm glad you got to make that trip. We rented bikes in Garmisch for a day as well and everyone loved being able to roam into the town and into the hills a bit. All that fresh air and freedom seem to go well together.

  3. That will be nice to move up to Washington so you can be close to his family! And it's so true about bike seats! I wonder why they haven't figured out how to make them more comfortable yet!

  4. I love that you went on a bike ride together. I've been craving to do that with my family sometime. I'm the only one who doesn't have one! I need to get one! :)

  5. such perfect pictures and such a nice trip,bike ride with family sounds perfect.
