Back to the Outlets and the Crab Pot with Two Others - Feb. 17-19, 2012


We started off at Bob's Burgers at the Outlets with some snackies!! Shopping fuel.



We saw Chitty Chitty Bang Bang out the window and sang, "Oo ee oo aa aa ding dang walla walla bing bang. Oo ee oo aa aa ching chang walla walla bing bang." Not the right song but we couldn't remember the chitty chitty bang bang song.

First stop at the Outlets was the Nike store where I got a green pair of airs for $45!! WHAT? Then of course we had to look for any new P hats. Sam found some cheese. Could he still be hungry? NOPE! He was feisty and wanted to hit Jonny with the cheese. I think Jonny liked it. 
Wow! SAM got a new watch... wait.. Sam got TWO new watches. BALLA! 
The Marriot lounge. We made it! YAY! Let's take some pictures. SMILE! 
AWWW... LOVE! 
Getting silly at The Crab Pot! Wearing our bibs like Grandpa! 
Sam doesn't need a bib! Sam... sit down!! HI!!! 
The next morning I went for my first run in a year and a half. I ran about 3km in 15 minutes along the water. It was very pretty but very cold. I was soooooooooo happy it didn't hurt at all.. and I was moving!! I was running!! I AM FREE!! I am UNSCREWED!! YAY!! 
Good morning Jonny Cakes!

Jonny tried out his travel studio and got a coffee and off to a FRESH start! 
We walked all over the city. 

Till we found VONS. Sam had a small, cold Pabst. 
I had a big, big STELLA... and then I felt normal again. 


Then we went to THE BLARNEY STONE. This was our favourite spot. Heidi and I played darts and Sam and Jonny played pool. Heidi also found a snackie that she really liked here... something Corned Beef Hash in a pastry... I thought Grandpa would like this too. I remember he liked corned beef hash... I remember not liking it. 
The bartender gave us a list of bars that we might like.

We walked through the night until we got to ... Shorty's! 
We played some games!! 
The next morning Jonny got his steak and eggs. He really only wanted the steak. 
We ate pretty unhealthily the whole trip... but the last stop at Jack in the Box was the last straw for my tummy.(we were looking for DQ and ice cream) Jonny and I have been eating salads ever since this trip. I am finally feeling better again!  

 Thanks to mom and pops for sponsoring our lavish stay at the Marriott on the water. I will never forget my first run!! We really appreciate it... but I think you should come with us next time!! Love you!!

JAX Beach Summer School 2018

Our summer adventure began by leaving Frank Hurt a week early, the same time as the students. We drove to Bellingham and stayed at the hotel by the Slo Pitch. We had snacks and went swimming. Step one: Get through the border was done. The next mission was to make it through the Seattle traffic. We also stopped off at Bellis Fair and got a new hat for Big Boy as he left his in grandma's basement before we left. 

 In Seattle we stayed by the airport and found Angle Lake. It has a beach, BBQ spots, a play park, and a water park... and washrooms. I didn't have my suit on this time, because we thought it was just a water park, but next time, I am jumping in. Big Boy didn't want to go in without me.

We watched the weather forecast closely to make sure we would have some nice days in Seaside. We had until Friday to cancel. The weather looked good until the day we left so we went for it. The morning we woke up to leave (Tuesday), the weather app changed and gave us two bad days. Too late now! Off we went to Seaside. Carrie was already on her way but we did get an earlier start that I thought we would. We left at 7am. Here is the boy before we left - sad faced and with Bear. 
The City Center Motel. We were in unit 1 beside the pool. This was a great unit for us. Number 6 on the other side of the pool looks nice too. I thought we were going to miss having the little cottage one - but this was much nicer because the boy could have his bath.
Tuesday, we arrived and headed straight to the beach to play. We did wave jumping, beach bowling, and we made some roads and tunnels. Christian found a buddy his age and they had a great time chasing each other and playing.




Carrie found us! She …

End of Summer Adventures aka: Running Away from Project "FIX THE PATIO"

Bellingham  Well, this sucks... they are jack hammering outside our patio door. We better run away. Where can we go? Let's go to Bellingham and then back to Seattle and go swim in that lake again. 




Seattle  It was super hot the day we got to Seattle... we decided to wait to go to the lake until the next day... and it started raining?! One day we will spend the day at the lake and make a bbq. We did the second best thing and took the train to the city. Christian loves the train. 







Whistler  We came home and got a nice bamboo fence to block out the views, bring us some shade, and give us some security.



But.. the drilling continued on Monday... and got closer! Off to Whistler.
