Just What the Doctor Ordered

Two days after having my new ticker installed we headed off to the Great Northwest. It was just what the doctor ordered. Truly! I know myself and had I been at home I would have never been able to relax and take it easy. The long drive to and from Seattle alone was more rest and relaxation than I probably would have had at home. And while we had a wonderful time and did a lot I really felt like I took things pretty easy for the most part.

Conner and Kylee planned a wonderful vacation for us in Conner's hometown. They worked out a great itinerary and we didn't miss out on a thing. His parents were extremely generous. They put us up in their home for a few nights and then we stayed in their condo in Whistler, BC for a couple nights as well. They treated us to great seats at the Mariners games for two nights, boating for two days on a beautiful lake, FOOD, beautiful views, and we were even lucky enough to get to see Conner's little sister, Lauren, perform in a ballroom dance production.

They were having some great fun with all the floation devices, especially the SUMO tube!

Conner had some VERY impressive
moves! He was fun to watch.

I've got more pictures I want to download but they are on Kylee's camera. She is still in Seattle so I'll do it in a few days.
There was a down side of the trip. Kaydee, Launey and the kids weren't able to make it. I thought about them a ton. I hope they know that we missed them.
