I AM BACK!!!!!

As many of you can see I am back to trying to blog more often and thanks to Lizzie (my sister-in -law) I have learned to add pictures to my blog. Hopefully I will be able to keep up better. We have been traveling a lot these past months so I will try to show you some highlights.

We took a family trip to Seattle on our way to our cruise to Alaska.  This is from the Pikes Market. I just loved looking at all the beautiful flowers. I wish I could have bought many of them just to enjoy but I knew I couldn't take any on the boat.

These were eggs that were for sale at the market. What amazed me was the big one is an ostrich egg , and the black ones were emu eggs. 

While we were in Seattle we went to the Seattle Aquirium,  this was a diver "petting" some type of an eel. 
We had fun seeing all the different fish and sea creatures. I said many times how do people think that everything happened by chance when you see how many variations of fish God created. I know we saw only a small sample of the many, many kinds of animals God made.
We had a great place to stay in Seattle and each night the staff had a snack time down in the lobby. Rachel is sitting here watching the staff pop  popcorn (in the big movie type popper) getting ready for the snack time.

This I am told is a must see. It is called the gum wall. This section of an ally is filled with ABC (already been chewed) gum. Some people have made designs with their gum and many have just stuck it to the wall. It was kind of cool but it was also kind of gross.


  1. Sounds like a super fun trip! Miss you guys like crazy! <3

  2. The trip WAS awesome. Lots of GREAT memories were made....

  3. Glad you are back to blogging... it's so nice to see what is going on in SC... makes me feel more connected... so keep it up.

    Seattle was amazing and of course so was Alaska.

  4. Welcome back!
    Interesting pics!
