Last week, we took a family vacation. It has been almost a year since we took a vacation. (Well, Husband technically had vacation in May when we moved but all of our funds were tied up in house buying and stuff moving.) So for us, it was time to get a vacation again. We eneded up in Seattle. Husband and I both wanted to go there and the budget allowed it so off we went. (Crazy fact for you- it was the same price to fly to Seattle and stay there for 4 days as it would have been to drive down to Anaheim (about 6 hours), stay in the Paradise Pier hotel, and play in Disneyland for 2 days!)
Anyways, we went, we explored, and we had fun just relaxing and reconnecting as a family…
The first day was recovering from the 4am wake up call and then taking a nice walk at the waterfront park that was so wonderfully close to the hotel.
The next day we walked the city center (isn’t pretty how the cloud/fog covered the needle. It was eerie and pretty at the same time.), took the monorail over to Pike Place Market, and ended the day with a long walk at the same waterfront park. This time walking the half mile down to Olympic Sculpture Park.
We spent a day with family up at their house in Northern Washington. It was nice to visit and have a relaxing day. Our final day was a trip to the Museum of Flight. This museum is amazing and I wish the kids would have cooperated and let Husband and I read more. IF Husband and I get a couples trip, I might ask to visit this museum again.
And last up was waiting for our plane at the airport. The kids were getting restless (at their typical bedtime but our plane didn’t leave until 8:30p) so we put on some cartoons on our phones and they crowded around to watch.
Overall, a very good vacation. But as with most vacations, it was nice to get back and get back to our normal routine.
