|lovely link ride in Seattle after being up since 3:30 a.m.....|
|visiting Pike Place Market made the long day of traveling worth it!|
|we HAD to wait in line to get coffee at the very 1st Starbucks....|
we drove across the border to Vancouver.....in a mini-van.....
|Canadian money is WAY prettier than US|
|our home for the week|
from Redwoods to walking along the bay, the sites were breathtaking. we decided to rent bikes and explore....
although we had to pile in the mini-van for a 2 1/2 hour drive to Whistler, it was the highlight of the vacation for all of us. while i could have done without the gondola rides and being suspended higher than comfortable, the views were completely worth it!

this picture isn't great quality, but this was at dinner our last night in Vancouver. we haven't gone on vacation as a family for a few years and this was a first having all of us bring our significant other. honestly, i couldn't have imagined a better time!
another highlight: this was mine and drew's first time going on vacation together. between catching flights, navigating in a new city and spending a lot of money traveling with someone, especially a significant other, can be nerve-wrecking. again, i couldn't have imagined a better vacation with him. we made so many new memories and inside jokes; he is the best traveling buddy, ever! i am really hoping we can afford to start traveling more soon!
i am sure some of you may be wondering how the magnificent Inaugural Lululemon Seawheeze 1/2 marathon went, but unfortunately, you will have to wait for the next post. i have more pictures and stories to capture my last 1/2 marathon! i truly promise it won't take me long to get that post up, but until next time....
always striving for more,
