• Seattle 2014

officially feel like we live with Delta’s flight crew. We have spent so many hours on planes this past month!! It’s kinda sad but I have actually gotten tired of their “Bischoff Cookies”. I used to love those cookies!! We’re not complaining, we love to travel.. but it has felt good to be home this week! Our trip to Seattle was planned close to a year ago and as we got closer to the date, things started to fall into place! For example, we met up with our sweet friends Ike and Tash for dinner in Richmond several months ago and casually mentioned that we would be in their neck of the woods in September.

They immediately invited us to be their guests for the day!! So after flying into Seattle on Friday night, we spent Saturday morning exploring on our own and then we met them in the afternoon and headed to the State Fair!!! Now I love the fair and I love the horribly delicious food that was waiting for us when we got there… but the BEST part of the day was spending time with such genuine, like-minded people and their adorable baby girl, Wisdom. Seriously, she’s so cute you’re not even going to be able to handle it!! Michael loves kids and so he thoroughly enjoy manning the stroller and walking Wisdom around the fair. He’s going to be an awesome dad one day…. one day, not any time soon! :)

We loved our time with these dear friends and as we left their house, I found myself being so amazed at the relationships we have been able to form through this crazy business. We love Ike and Tash and all that they’re doing in their business!! It’s exciting to see friends have such successful seasons in their lives!! We can’t thank them enough for treating us to a night at the fair and for giving up a Saturday evening to spend with us. :) Enjoy some of my favorites from the trip! …. And let me just say, there is an abundance of “Wisdom” shots because that girl is just so darn photogenic!!

They weren’t throwing a fish… but it was close enough! :)

Thanks to Jordan and Amy, we spent $40 on chocolate covered cherries! 

We watched cheese being made! 

And we stood in line for 45mins just to say we had been to the first Starbucks!

And as amazing as our morning was… our day got A LOT better seeing this girl!!!

She’s just the best! 

THIS was entertaining! 

She licked it like ice cream:)

I totally won on this game!

Ike shot this and I LOVE IT! 

These two… they had a blast! 

So much joy!

And so many calories! 

Tash you’re gorgeous!!

Sweet girl!!

Ike shot these and we love them!!!!

Ha! I love her hand in the corner… 

We wore her out!!

xoxo, Katelyn

    I am jealous of your market photos! I was just there but was a bit rushed by my tour guide and didn’t take any pictures. I planned to go back and didn’t make it. Glad you captured all that beauty for me to look at! Also, Are you following me? ;) You went to both Seattle and Australia a few weeks after my husband and I. Crazy! :)
