Back to my "new home"!

It was bittersweet heading back to the airport for WA. I was so excited to see Benny and it was even more fun because Tom and Pam were flying on the same flight as me to spend Easter weekend together. But it was sad for me to leave everyone again.

I know Ben was excited to see Tom and Pam...and me I guess!! We made it back to Bellingham around 10:00 that night. We were all so tired so we pretty much just went to bed.

Ben and I had so much planned for the weekend, but the weather decided to not cooperate at all. it was cold and rainy each day but we still managed to stay busy the entire weekend!

Friday morning Ben, Tom and I went for a run and and then came back to wake Pam up...Just kidding Pam! We headed down to old town Bellingham which is called Fairhaven. There are a lot of cute shops and we ate at a yummy cafe. As you will notice in some of the pictures i have an awesomely cute hat on...Tom and Pam bought that for me in Fairhaven...thanks again! I am so lucky to have the best in-laws ever!
We went to Church at night and then went to Anthony's, which is a restaurant on the ocean, it was a beautiful view.

On Saturday we drove over to a cute town called Lynden and got some treats from one of the Dutch bakeries in town. Then we headed down Chuckanut Drive which is the #1 thing to do in Bellingham. It has absolutely beautiful views. I think Pam and Tom really liked it!

Then we went to Mount Vernon to see all the beautiful tulip fields that this area is known for. We went to "Tulip Town". There was an inside part that showed you all the different kinds of tulips and then there were the amazing, beautiful, colorful fields.

Pam bought us some of those beautiful tulips to enjoy at home!

On Sunday we went to Sunrise Easter service! Church was amazing! We just love our pastor, and it was such a wonderful service! Ben and I made an Easter brunch, and we were full to the brim for the afternoon. After we ate we loaded up and headed to Anacortes on Fidalgo Island, which is where we loaded our car and ourselves for San Juan Island. The ferry ride was beautiful...and fun. We can only imagine how great the views would be if it would have been sunny. Once we got to the island we had so much fun just roaming around and exploring all the beautiful areas.
(*It is getting late and I am tired...so I will add the San Juan pictures tomorrow!)

Monday was a sad morning as Ben had to Bring Tom and Pam to the airport to head home. We had so much fun and were so thankful to have them here as our first guests.

Now it is back to the real world for Ben and I! Time to get back into routine! We love you and miss you! Thanks for reading a little about our extremely exciting lives! :)

  1. oh, family time is so wonderful, no matter where you spend it :o)
    beautiful pictures as always! can't wait to come out and see it in person sometime!

  2. All of the pictures are so "cheery" and your happiness is shining through!! It's so nice they were able to visit. Our plans for our tax $ was to go straight to savings -- but this post REALLY has me changing my mind... flight to WA? :)

    All our love to you and Ben!!

  3. NO ... I have the best in-laws! :) I love these pictures and the tulips! It looks like you guys had so much fun. We really need to get our trip on the books.
