Every time we drive in to town or on our way back home, you can see cars parked along the side of the road; drivers out, bucket in hand, collecting berries that are just waiting to be picked. We are fortunate enough to have those same berries growing on our property. We had a great time enjoying the outdoors and collecting some of nature's sweet treats.

As you can imagine moving can be very difficult. Well try and endure that while being 3. My little has been a very brave girl, so the moment our things arrived we got started on getting her room in order.
|Daddy putting up wall decals|
|I got these decals from Zulily for $30|
|She was so happy to see her keys|
|Her globe lamp night light|
|I think the happy face on the chalkboard means she likes her new room|
|The view from her bedroom window. She got these window decals from her friend in California.|
|The couch sits right under that sunny sill with the butterflies. It's a great place to read books.|
|This tree stands alone on a wall between her door and closet. I saved a few more branches as her collection grows.|
When Cecilia is happy, we're happy. It is so nice to know she loves her new home and her room. We hope you liked the mini tour.

|Bye to Uncle Bobby|
|Bye Auntie Jo|
|Ketchikan: Home of Discovery's "Alaskan Bush People"|
While on the Ferry Brandon built this for Cecilia. He then asked her "Do you know what that says"? She replied "ZOO". OMG! She's only 3! Thank you Endless Reader app!
|A beautiful trip to Juneau|
As you might have seen before in the earlier installment of our trip to Alaska, there were a lot of goodbyes. One that was particularly hard for me was saying goodbye to the flowers my Grandma gave me before she passed. They are now planted in my In-Laws garden. I used to pick these very flowers out of her garden as a kid, and for the past 2 years my daughter has been able to do the same.
Next stop…. Tacoma
|The street I grew up on|
|My old home. The window on the tippy top was my room; it over looked the sound.|
We then stopped by my step sisters house. Even though our parents are no longer together she will always be family. There is nothing like watching our little ones play together.
|Adrien enjoying some watermelon|
|Cecilia and Claire….. Here comes trouble|
|Cecilia Loved her Auntie Jenn's Pigs|
After we said goodbye to them we drove by my High School.
|Stadium High School AKA Padua High for those "10 Things I Hate About You" fans|
Then off to Opera Alley to have dinner with some friends at my favorite place to eat.
|Over the Moon Cafe has some of the best food in town!!!|
|Their steak is AMAZING|
We then continued to Bellingham, where we spent a few days before boarding the Ferry.
|We caught a Bells Game|
|4th of July Fireworks|
