The Pacific Northwest: As Told With Pictures

Here is the quick run down of my trip with pictures! When available!

Arrived in SEA on Wednesday night. Had an enjoyable ride to Olympia catching up with my favorite aunt. I have favorites. I am not going to lie and my Aunt Carolyn is it.

Thursday! I finally got to meet Anna!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This was probably the most exciting thing about my trip. She is like the big sister I never had and always wanted. We are a lot a like it is scary! We met for lunch and it was wonderful.

Friday I got up early to hang with some of my favorite girls in Seattle/Renton/Kent.
Alethea, me, and Jewel. These lovely ladies are such great people and always bring a smile to my face.

I had to leave Jewel super early on Saturday morning to head down to Portland (Corbett to be exact). Caught my cousin's son Zack in a community theater performance of Annie. While Zack was busy performing, I got to to sit with this lovely girl Aurora.

Seriously I can't wait to have kids and I hope they are as smart and cute as her. Or my friends better start having kids so I can be the awesome Aunt Sarah.

After the play we all headed to McMenamins Power Station pub for lunch/Dinner where I imbibed in Thomas Kemper root beer from a Keg! Yum!

I have the exact same black dress. You should pack it when you come over - we can play twins. You'd be the blonde and I the brunette in that scenario.
