Lugar's come to WA

Gabe and have been so lucky to have many visitors from the south venture all the way to our part of the world, and it is such a special thing to really show them our life in the Pacific Northwest that we have created for ourselves.  My brother and sister in law are people I LOVE being around, and I am so lucky to feel the same way about Gabe's brother and his wife as well.  

With that being said .... I am still bursting at the seams since Jordan, Arrie, Griffin (2 1/2 yrs), and Gracie (9 wks) came to Seattle!  My brother juggles a career, getting his MBA at SMU, and has a family at home wanting his attention creating a busy busy life.  The only Saturday he didn't have class .... he came to visit little ole' me in Seattle, and I am SOOO appreciative.

Our long weekend could not have been more perfect 
as I got to LOVE over them all!  Meeting Gracie for the first time ... 
Melts my heart.  Isn't the lovely~!!

It's a lot of work to travel with two kids - Love you for it sister!

Gabe teaching Griffin thumbs up!!
*thumbs and pointer finger are almost the same, right?

Griffin thought the world of his Uncle Gabe

Like father ... Like son  ;) 

Waiting for our burger from Redmill - Best burger in Seattle 


Popping over to Bainbridge Island (by ferry) for a mini adventure

Gabe is going to be an INCREDIBLE dad 
as this weekend solidified what I always thought would be true! 

I miss you seeestor (fancy way to say sister!)

Thanks to Google, we found the biggest and fanciest park!
Arrie said she's never seen anything like it -- Look at this face, GB must concur!







Sweet Lugar's 

Heading back to Seattle 

Stunning - Mt. Rainier

The most gorgeous city in the world! 

Our days were filled with lots of laughter and thankfulness for quality time together.  Isn't family the best!

What fun! Griffin and Gracie are so cute. All these pictures make me want to visit Seattle, it looks amazing!

Arrie said...

We LOVED visiting you. You and Gabe are the best hosts and we look forward to many more visits now that we know it isn't THAT hard to travel with the kids. Maybe a warm visit next time?!? LOVE

Very nice! Whenever our family from California comes to visit they always love it. We are on Fidalgo Island right near the water and it truly is a little bit of heaven :)

Nice weather for this time of year? That is always good when hosting family.

We are in Iowa right now and it was 67 today. But I still can't wait to be home in Washington in a couple weeks!

Blessings and Happy Week!

A great family is such a blessing, and you sure look blessed! I'm so happy for you and the great time you have with those loved ones :-)

Amber said...

I totally agree. It is so nice, when you live far away, for people to take time out of their schedules to come visit. I realize I live in a part of the country that people love to visit (FLORIDA), but still it is a nice cure for homesickness.

I love the thumbs/pointers up picture!

LG said...

Hi! I'm new to your blog. I'm from Texas, but moved to Seattle just after I graduated from A&M. I lived there six months and LOVED it. I think I left part of my heart there. I moved back to TX, met a wonderful guy and fell in love. We now live in a little town northeast of Dallas. I'm excited to keep up with your adventures in the PNW. Seeing your photos of the city, makes me miss it so much! Cute blog!!! I'm now following :)
