Our last week in Seattle was a Memorial Day Weekend Extravaganza, there was family, friends and oh so much food! Our weekend started on Friday night with Karaoke Bingo at the local Senior Center. We weren't lucky enough to jump up and yell BINGO but we did have a great time laughing and singing along with those brave enough to hop up on stage and belt out a classic or two. Read More
Saturday was more of a lazy day, after a late breakfast we hung out and watched a movie before getting on the road to Bellingham for the Memorial Day Parade and post parade burgers and beers. Sunday was the big Ski to Sea race, a 8 member team competes in a 7 leg race consisting of cross country skiing, down hill skiing, running, road biking, canoeing, mountain biking and kayaking. This is Dan's father after completing the 42 mile course in 2 hours and 18 mins! Way to go!
A week of relaxing and saying goodbye to family and friends we packed our bags for Austin, Texas! Juno, a very curious kitten, was helping me make sure I have everything I need in my carry-on. She is so cute I could have just zipped her right up to come along :-)
We board the plane the old fashioned way to Austin for the weekend followed by a week in Florida and then a quick 2 day stay in Manhattan before we are on our way to Rome. Multiple heavy bags in hand we arrive at the Seattle airport, check the large bags and surprisingly zip through security in under 15 minutes! Since a 3 am wake up call is never pleasant we were thankful for a smooth morning.
An avid follower of HGTV's Fixer Upper I was excited to stop in Waco and visit Magnolia Market. A lovely compound with a play area complete with yard games and bean-bag chairs. We checked out the Feed & Seed store and pet the goats! A little bummed that the bakery wasn't open yet but a great trip all the same!
We are in Austin for the next couple of days and will be in sunny Florida next week! Follow along on Instagram (#romanwithjaxanddeano) and come back here next Saturday for more of our adventures!
