Trip to Seattle

At the end of January we made a trip up to Seattle, WA for Rob’s Grandpa Bob’s memorial.  We are so glad we were able to make it up there, to visit with family we haven’t seen in a few years. 

This was our FIRST time with a child on a plane…  Thank you to all the family and friends who gave us pointers… We used ALL of them!  As we prepared for the worst trip ever, we had NO problems whatsoever flying.  Our flight left Ontario, CA @ 6 a.m., we purposely left this early in hopes Katelyn would sleep the whole flight there…  It worked!  We arrived at the airport at about 5 a.m and she was wide awake, but as soon as we boarded and took off, she was sound asleep!!!!!Seattle ~ January 001

Once we landed we met up with Rob’s Aunt Cindy.  Went ad visited Grandma Donna (Katelyn’s 1st time meeting her) and hit the local mall to do some shopping and eating :)

After the Memorial, we {the family} headed to Cindy and Howie’s house for a lovely reception dinner… The food was AMAZING!  hanging out eating, drinking {lemon drops, and wine}, getting to know the cousins and remenscing of Grandpa Bob.  On Sunday, everybody woke up SUPER early to catch the 8:30 am ferry to Whidbey Island.  This was Katelyn’s first ferry ride and she loved it!

Once we got to Whidbey Island, we went to meet Uncle Howie… We went to the dock to spread Grandpa Bob’s ashes.  It was such a beautiful service we had there.  Bob’s daughter Sally and Rob’s cousin Bree  read a beautiful poems.  It was simply wonderful!!!  After ward we headed back to the house for a YUMMY brunch complete with mimosas and lots of food!!!!!
