Trip to Seattle

Riding w/ cousin Ella

Note the borrowed pink John Deere cowgirl boots - how cute!

Not too sure about the horse at first!

Loving on cousin Ella

Our family at Grandpa Jim's house

As promised, here are some pics from our Seattle trip. For those of you who don't know, RR's family lives up there, and we get to visit them about every other year or so. This is the first time the kids have been up there, or even on a plane for that matter! They both did pretty well, all things considered, on the plane. (Not that I would recommend travelling on an airplane w/ two kids 2 and under for the faint of heart.) We were up there for 2 weeks, and 5 days of that was just RR and I in Vancouver, BC on a "business trip" (RR had business...I slept in and had free meals) while RR's sister and mom kept the kids. This was our first time to leave Baby G, and he did great. The Bean did great too...RR's sister has 3 kids, two boys 11 & 7, and a little girl who is almost 3. Ella and the Bean became fast friends, and the Bean even bunked in her room! The highlight of the Bean's trip was getting to "ride da pony" at Uncle Kevin's house. Uncle Kevin has a bunch of horses and a few other animals, and the Bean loved it! She was a little scared of the horses at first, but then warmed up and wanted to ride one. We had a great time visiting RR's family, and I know the Bean will remember this trip for a while!
