We loved seeing Helen & Samuel's charming neighborhood in Kirkland. It was so fun to walk along the lake and get gelato after dinner.
We loved riding the Great Wheel -- so amazing to see the city from a ferris wheel capsule over the water.
On our way home we stopped and stayed a night in Portland -- we had dinner with Barbie & Drew and their adorable little Graydon. It was also great to see Braxton. And if you ask the kids, the best thing about the whole trip was that at the hotel we stayed at in Portland we had a special access code that let us get free treats from the vending machines -- um, pretty much the most exciting thing when you're 6 and 9! You should have seen the goodies they loaded up with for the drive home -- yowza!
