The One with Home Sweet Home

We're hoooooooome! Here's how we got to Washington: at 6:15am Brian took us to the Burbank Airport. It was nice and empty.

Funny story, as we were going through security, you know how you have to take off your shoes?

Well Fox was wearing Trumpette socks and they look like Converse shoes (as seen above a little blurry cuz Fox is always kicking and squirming) and the security dude was like, "You're going to have to take off his shoes," and I'm like, "They're socks," and the guy was inspecting them like I was lying or something and brought over some other security guy and he's like, "Yeah, they're just socks, you can go on through." Hardy har.

The Burbank airport is so small and intimate you have to walk out on the tarmac to get onto your plane.

The sun was just starting to peak through the clouds as we boarded.

Clouds make such interesting shapes and patterns!

Fox in his typical airplane riding fashion fell right asleep for the short flight from LA to Oakland.

What, are we gonna land on the water?!?!

A couple months ago we were at the Santa Anita mall and Auntie Anne's Pretzels was handing out "buy one get one free" coupons for use in a few SoCal locations. Well, during our short layover in Oakland we passed an Auntie Anne's Pretzels and I wondered if they'd accept our coupon. I told Chris, what's the worst that could happen? They could say no and we'd be on our merry way. So we handed the employee our coupon, she looked it over, couldn't make up her mind, showed her boss, and the boss said okie dokie! Sweet! So Chris got a pepperoni pretzel and I got a cinnamon sugar pretzel.

Nummy nummy.

Then we flew from Oakland to Seattle. Fox slept for the first hour, then he woke up and we entertained him.

I love the Pacific Northwest. To me the definition of beauty is lots of evergreen trees and lakes. Just like this:

Random island in the middle of a lake. I wonder who owns this and how often they go there? All I could see from my view was a dock, no buildings or other signs of civilization.

Malm/Grandma Carolyn picked us up from the airport. She kept saying, "Money in the bank." as she was squeezing her one and only grandson. Precious.

We went to Bajio for lunch. It's like Cafe Rio. This is a pretty fountain inside.

The colorful counters.

So. Much. Food.

At home Allie was crafting away and I joined in on the fun. We made "raries" as my dad calls them.
Photobucket
I remember making these in preschool but it was much harder and a longer process. But, as most everything is these days, it's easy and Allie learned how to do it on YouTube.

She made a super cute banner and I wanted one too so we got to work! Well, Allie mostly got to work, I'm still learning how to make 'em.

Super cute huh? She should make lots and sell them on etsy!

As we were walking out the door to go meet Dald at Yummy Teriyaki for dinner, there was a package full of Thickers for Allie! Lucky girl!

Waiting for our food.

After Fox went to sleep for the night, we introduced my parents and Allie to one of our new favorite shows: Modern Family.

It's so good to be home!
