A Mini Vacation with the Mini

Whoa, that was a much bigger blogging break than I intended to take!  It was nice to step away while we were up in the Northwest & just disconnect for a bit.  I had planned on blogging as soon as we got back, but a sick babe (with a high fever for 3 days) and then our internet being on the fritz put blogging off for a bit.  Any whoo... I'm back and have lots of catching up to do!

Our little trip up North was nothing short of amazing as always.  Each time I go home to visit, I appreciate my hometown more & more.  I love watching Liam run around my parents backyard, helping Nana plant flowers or being chased by Pops.  There is just something so special about watching your child play in the house you grew up in.  I am becoming more & more nostalgic for Spokane every day.  The desire to move back home grows greater with each visit...





Since I was in town for over a week, I had the opportunity to spend time with all of my family (Grandpa included) & many of friends!  My mom always makes me feel so at home by putting fresh flowers from the garden in my bedroom & having some of my favorite snacks & wine on hand! And she always comes home from the gym with a coffee for me in hand.  It feels like my very own little bed & breakfast.  :-)


Spokane was good to us.  There were playdates & wine tastings.  Massages & coffee dates.  Happy hours & bubbles...lots of bubbles.  Pontoon boat rides & rounds of darts in the man cave.  Huckleberry pancakes & maple bars.  Swings & slides.  Lots of cousin time.  And each ordinary moment in between made extraordinary because I was home.  Home with my family.  



The airport goodbyes were sad & teary, but....
we will be back in a short 4 1/2 weeks!
(And next time I will be making sure to get pictures of Nana!!!)

    1. I was so sad we missed each other as well! I'm home for even longer around the 4th of July, so we will definitely get together! And I'm sure we'll be spending more time at the brewery! Now if only Ben could brew a cider.... ;-)
