What A Day!

Click! to enlarge...

Another glorious day here in the Pacific Northwest, albeit a cold one!

Today was the big welcoming parade for the Seattle Seahawks  team (American Football) who, for the first time ever, had won the Super Bowl last weekend! They estimate that  between 700.000 and 1 million people were out in this cold weather (for hours and hours!) to wave and cheer them on: unbelievably fun to watch on tv I must say... <wink>

So if that wasn't fun enough, I received a call with a wonderful offer from my dad and his wife to fly me over to The Netherlands for my step-sister's wedding later in the summer: Woot Woot!!!  I hadn't expected to be in Holland again for at least another 4 years or so (once the college costs hopefully will be lowered by one child at least), so this was a super duper surprise! 
Unfortunately it is right at the time where our schools begin the Fall semester so I will have to leave the rest of the family at home, but on the other hand I get to travel by myself and meet lots of fun friends and relatives. (something the kids don't always appreciate)

And then on our way home today we were greeted with this spectacular sight of the Cascade Mountains so all in all: What A Day!!!  {smile}


  1. What a wonderful surprise for you, to be able to visit your family in Holland! Lucky you!

  2. OMG - what good news! Great! It's always so good to have something to look forward too! Yeeeaaaahhh!

  3. Wow - what a lovely offer and fabulous upcoming trip! I love your snowy capped mountains by the way.
