PNW Trip: San Juan Islands

When we were planning the trip to Washington I googled where the best orca viewing tours were which led me to the San Juan Islands.  I found a tour company, googled how far it was from Olympia and bought the tickets. We were figuring out the drive time one night after dinner when I realized that the ferry only ran a few times a day.  Rookie mistake ;) hahaha. We decided to just go for it anyway which meant that we were up and out of the house by about 5:45 on Saturday morning.  

We drove about 2.5 hours to the Anacortes ferry terminal, parked the car, bought our tickets and hopped on our first ever ferry.

Salsa Verde Crock Pot Chicken

 I'm always on the hunt for a good crockpot recipe, especially in the summer when the last thing I want to do is run my oven.  I made this salsa verde crockpot chicken last week and some of us ate it in bowl form, others made tacos with it and some used theirs in quesadillas.  It was easy, full of flavor and tasted great reheated for leftovers - it was a winner!

PNW Trip: Olympia (Part I)

The second part of or trip was three GLORIOUS days at the most incredible spot in Olympia, WA. Our days were pretty low-key and SLOW which is exactly what we wanted 

I've been trying to figure out how to share everything and have it not be super boring and repetitive so I think rather than going day by day i'm going to highlight different aspects of what we did while at this spot in two posts and see how that goes ;)

First up - the water.  I feel like it goes without saying that the views/location of this house were the selling point.  I had no idea just how special they were though until we were there. 

The house sat at the end of a creek which over hundreds of years has created this incredible beach area... we spoke with the neighbor several times over the days we were there and he told us how these two houses are really the only two on the inlet that have a beach area like this.  At low tide it was super expansive....

We kicked off the July 4th festivities at the Party in the USA 5K on Wednesday night...

PNW Trip: Seattle to Olympia Day

After a travel/baseball day on Sunday and a FULL day in the city on Monday we were dragging just a bit on Tuesday morning ;) We grabbed some breakfast at the hotel (again - omelette bar was SO GOOD!) and then packed up and headed out...

Summer touches

 Happy Monday! Today I thought I'd share a look into what little touches I've changed out around the house for summer.  It all kind of started when I found this Uncle Sam planter at my local antique store...

PNW Trip: Seattle Day 2 (Part II)

So to recap... Sunday we flew in, went to the Mariner/Rangers game and hung out at the hotel.  Monday we started out at the Space Needle and then walked over the the Pacific Science Center which is where we're picking up now ;)

 Outside of the Science Center there were several water exhibits but I couldn't stop looking at the flowers.

What's Up Wednesday

    Today I'm linking up with  Shay and  Sheaffer to talk a little bit about what's been going on around here! I missed out on this last week when I was in DDC with Luke, but wanted to share anyway ;)

Rainier cherries!  OH MY WORD, y'all.  WHY ARE THESE SO GOOD?!?! I bought them every chance I had the past week or so and have zero regrets!
