Flashback Friday ~Family Staycation

It's hard for me to believe, but its been a year since several of my family came to visit us last summer. I loved having them all here at the same time. Like a vacation for me at my own house :-) We did a lot of traveling and saw some great sights, but the part I loved the best was being together with them. I took about 1000 pictures that week and I could flashback to some beautiful scenery, but instead I'm flashing back to some smiley happy feel good family photos. See how smiley I was :-)

The trip was planned for my sister's 50th birthday present to herself. She wasn't here on her birthday, but we did get to celebrate our family friend, Cathy's birthday while they were here. Here we are in Port Townsend a cute Victorian town at the tip of the Olympic Peninsula celebrating.

We had some good meals while they were here, but this was my favorite meal the whole time. Ham sandwiches on white bread at a picnic bench by the ocean. It was just one of those warm fuzzy moments for me!

Here are the two birthday girls at the top of the Space Needle

And the three of us standing in front of Mount St. Helens

This is one of my favorite pictures of the week...the girls at the base of the largest Spruce tree in the world.

And posing alongside another giant tree..this one fallen

This one of my Dad in the Hoh Rainforest makes me laugh

We took an awesome Whale watching trip

Lots of photo ops as you can tell by the cameras at the ready!

I hope one day we can do a repeat because I'm ready!

If anyone else has a flashback they want to share please add your link below. It can be a flashback to anything...a favorite recipe, vacation, photo, pick!

It seems to me that you had a great time. There is nothing better than a good company to spend your vacation time with.

You visited some great places! I love that rainforest, and the picture of your Dad is awesome! We also like to visit Port Townsend. Mt.St.Helen is in our plans for the close future. Remind me, please, where is that biggest spruce tree?
