Because I was able to work on-call as an Underground Tour guide this summer, I was able to go on a much needed sister trip! Our sweet blogging friend, Camille, from Flowers in His Garden had invited us to stay with her for a few days. She also invited a mutual blogging friend, Jen, from Wanting What I Have, who flew in to spend time with us, too. It was so fun to meet these ladies in person after reading about their amazing lives for over 7 years! What a blessing and dream come true.
Love this picture and this verse!
Had to take one more as the sun was setting. What a beautiful, calm night!
This was built as a tribute to Vancouver's hosting the Winter Olympics a few years ago.
We watched seaplanes taking off and land and huge ocean liners in the distance. So many people from all over the world speaking different languages. It was fascinating to people watch.
Loved this lighthouse, but I love this lady even more! Jen is beautiful inside and out. What a special blessing to have her visit at the same time. Camille was so gracious to have us all at once!

Yummy food and tea!
Not the best picture ever taken on my phone, but precious to me anyway. Camille was the hostess with the mostest! I was so thankful to have met her and her family in person. They have been through a lot these past few years with losing their eldest teenage son. It has been extremely hard for their family but the love and life in the Lord shine through this family. They are grieving very well and are such a good example to others who have lost loved ones. Their children were just a delight to be around. Camille and her wonderful husband, Howie, have done a fine job of bringing their children up to not only be wonderful people, but to love the Lord with all their hearts, minds and souls. They are true servants of the Most High!
The next day, after stopping by Austin's grave and praying once last time with Camille, Stacie and I said our good-byes and headed back to the states and stopped off at Leavenworth, WA for some fabulous antipasto. Then we did a little shopping to take home more treats to our families. We stayed the night in Wenatchee, WA and then drove home the next morning. I think, after all that driving together, Stacie and I FINALLY got caught up. I'm pretty sure we didn't stop talking unless we were sleeping ;) We travel very well together, which makes it extra enjoyable.
This sister trip was a dream come true! I'm hoping we can make this an annual tradition.
Have a Blessed Day,
