{san diego} to seattle

Road Trip Collage M
Well we made it to Seattle safe and sound : ) The collage above are photos from my phone.....my DSLR is having technical difficulties at the moment. These pics are from Thursday through Sunday. I collected my beautiful mamma and sweet little sister from the airport late Wednesday night, so Thursday we finished packing, picked up the moving truck, had mini cheesecake pops for a snack, and ended the day with a walk on Moonlight Beach. Friday was the day a big storm hit, but we were lucky enough to get the moving truck all packed up before the rain started (with the help of a lot of Ryan's family). We had lunch with Ryan's folks at a favorite Mexican restaurant to celebrate, and then my mom, little sis and I drove around in the thunder and lightening storm to do a little shopping before ending the day at Solana Beach just in time for sunset. On Saturday we woke up at 2am but didn't end up leaving for Washington till 5am due to the Grapevine being closed from snow. This was a fun road trip day filled with lots of yummy snacks, a mystery book on CD, music, giggles, working on a little art, and taking photos from inside my truck.....who knew a 15 hour driving day could be a joy?!? The last leg of our trip was an 8 hour drive from Oregon to Seattle on Sunday, and honestly I was feeling a bit under the weather so I slept through most of it, but was able to take some photos of a couple of the pretty flowers once we arrived in Washington.....and so now here we are today. Happy to be in Seattle and spending our time looking for a house to rent. I hope you have a great week!  <3 Carrie
