Have you ever noticed when on vacation that the first few days feel like you’ve been away from home for an eternity? Then somewhere after the midway point, time speeds up and you feel like holding on to the last few days because it’s suddenly going too fast. We kept saying yesterday that we couldn’t believe we were on a plane just 24 hours before because we felt like we’ve been in Seattle already for a week. So far in the first 2 days we’ve eaten a lot of seafood, drank a lot of coffee, walked for miles and hugged a lot of family.
I guess there has been more humid than usual summer weather this year because we felt some moisture in the air that we normally don’t feel on the day we arrived. Still, we pulled on hoodies as soon the shady areas outnumbered the sunny spots on the sidewalks. Usually we come to Seattle with our days planned, but this year we’re just floating. As long as the girls can spend as much time with their aunt and grandma as possible, they are happy. Mia is making breakfast for us every morning and washing the dishes after every meal. Hmmm….wonder why she doesn’t do this at home.
