|Carl & I in Seattle|
This last week we went back to the state of Washington to revisit where Carl & I spent the first few years of our married lives. We have always wanted to take a trip back, and we decided now was the time to do it.

We stayed that night with old friends that had been in the military at the same time as Carl and were still enlisted. How much fun it was reminiscing about days gone by and catching up on present day events. Their kids and our kids had a blast together. They had a good time in the hot tub and slept in a tent together. Good times if you ask me.

We did not come home empty handed. Uncle Gary and Aunt Marianna generously sent us home with fresh crab and clams plucked fresh out of the ocean. I made a homemade crab chowder with carrots, celery, potatoes, heavy cream, and fresh crab this afternoon for lunch. It was so delicious! I made fried clams for dinner which were a hit as well. We came home safe with happy hearts and happy bellies. It was truly a fantastic trip!
