Christian's third birthday in Whistler:
Here we go... driving the Sea to Sky

Arriving in Whistler and checking out all the lights. 

 We stayed at the Executive Inn this time. We liked it. 

 That is our balcony. We had a cool view of the village and the mountain. 

 I think this is mom's view from The Hilton? 

 Friday night at the Spaghetti Factory. 

Rob, Lynn, Austin, and Tyler's huge spot at the Black Bear? or Blackcomb Lodge. 

Lynn playing Zombie with Christian.. so awesome! 

 View from our balcony. That is Rob and I down there. 

 Morning patio. 

We went swimming in our pool. I didn't get a picture. It was outdoor and I thought we would be in and out of there but it was so warm... and so hard to get out.. because it was so cold.... we were in there for two hours!! Christian learned to put his face under water and look for me. We played lots of games... it was so beautiful and the sun was shining. 

 We found some snow - with a snow tunnel!! (It was pretty hard snow though)

 Visiting grandma and papa - grandma wasn't feeling well today -we have to take care of grandma!! 

 This helps a lot. 


 Jonny and I chilling at a Fire Table - good memory :-) 

 Looks like someone ate some fries!! Fry face. 

Rob and Lynn are always down to Fire Table - I mean.. this was the best spot in Whistler.. for straight chilling.  

Thomas the Train TV

 Mom and Dad's pool view. 

 This is the first time he really ripped open presents and went crazy. It was pretty funny - he had a great time. (Thanks Lynn for the wrapping paper and tape - he had a lot of fun with the wrapping paper roll "killing" us the night before.) 

 Austin and Tyler were a big help opening all the toys. 

 Mint Oreo ice cream cake - everyone likes mint (except Jonny - but he had beer) 

 "Are you beautiful grandma?" 

 Everyone got a birthday hug. 

 And we out! Birthday done.. for both of us. 

 Good morning juice. 

 Look at my old man. 

 Christmas tree at Grandma and Papa's 

 Our group shots... glad we did this.. hahaha!! 

Thanks for coming to Christian's birthday - you all made it special!! Jonny and I appreciate it. 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.
