staycation 2012

Patrick had this past week off. Normally, we would have gone to Chelan for vacation, but kids are back in their fall activities and quite frankly, staying at home for the week fits better in our "adoption budget." But we have truly had the best week!

Monday - To Seattle to meet Grandma and Grandpa. They took us to the King Tut exhibit, the Pacific Science Center, school clothes shopping, and out to dinner.

Tuesday - To Bellevue for more school clothes shopping and out to lunch. Have I mentioned before how much we are spoiled by Grandma and Grandpa? Because we are. And we are so grateful. (Oh - and when we got home that day - I got our USCIS application in the mail. A big, important, adoption application that moves us another step forward!!)

Wednesday - Catch up on things at home and rest. Audrey to dance class - big kids to Awana.

Thursday - Drive to Whidbey Island and go to Fort Casey and Fort Ebey. The big kids were in heaven! They both love history - and learning about war in particular - so this was like a dream come true. Then back to Bellingham with a quick stop at Menchie's (our local frozen yogurt shop) and a family movie night (Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory).

Friday - First day of our homeschool co-op!

Such a fun week. I am so thankful for my family. We love spending time together!

...and now - here are tons of pictures...
