spring in seattle
This post is definitely long overdue since it’s been almost five months since we took our family vacation. But, I actually found enough time to edit and go through these–having the kids sleep at 7:45pm definitely has its perks. It’s been almost a decade since I moved from Seattle and to be honest, I wasn’t ready to leave. I had graduated when the market crashed and finding a job out of college was difficult to say the least. So, I did what majority of my graduating class did–moved back home and lived with my parents and prayed that someone would hire us. I was blessed to land a job within 3 months of moving back to Hawaii and months later, I met my soon to be wife. From there, the rest is history.
The thought of moving to the Pacific Northwest always entertains me but the thought of leaving our family pains me as well. Whatever happens in the future, I know it will be for the better. My goal is to provide the best opportunity for my children.
This trip will go down as one of my favorites for many reasons and probably the least favorite for my kids. The reason being it was too cold for them although Harper claims ‘the cold never bothered me anyways.’ It was a different trip–different from our SoCal trips where we spend days at amusement parks. One of my favorites because we just got to explore and hang out as a family and do different things. We also got to check something off of my wife’s bucket list–the tulip festival. We actually caught it at the perfect time as we found out that a week after our trip, the tulips were dead. Obviously, we did a lot of sightseeing and a lot of eating (Din Tai Fung FTW). Let’s hope that it doesn’t take us another decade to return back to the PNW.
