we have arrived

well, we are finally hitting our stride here in Washington. the weather has been BEAUTIFUL and Nate now understands once again why i am always writing about the amazing weather when I am out here. yesterday was about 75 with no humidity and until I am actually here I forget just how wonderful it is to live with no humidity. wow! typically it is in the high 90's, however, so it will be hot for sure before we go.

the flights out were pretty uneventful, and thankfully both girls have slept thru the night since we arrived! mornings are early but i will gladly get up early if i can sleep all night long! and i havent seen a single bug, other than a fly, since my arrival. can i get an "AMEN!"

today we are heading to my hometown (right now we are at dad's and he lives 30 miles from Walla Walla) to eat at the infamous "Lorenzo's" (and, just like last year, I will tell you how ridiculous the name is. Originally named "Abby's Pizza" it was and still is the best pizza i have ever tasted in my life, but was bought by a man named Loren who decided to change the name to Lorenzo's. this is the same pizza place i worked at each summer during jr.high.) so we are off to Lorenzo's and then to TCBY, where i drove each day after school during my senior year to get a small frozen yogurt with my friend Angela. And then later this evening we will be getting dinner with my good friend Jason who is one of two high school friends ive kept in touch with. (if you have been reading this blog for a while, you will remember a blog i wrote about a year ago regarding the big hair i used to have and i posted pictures, one was of Jason and I.) Ive known Jason since 6th grade, and it is always very interesting catching up again. i will be sure to fill you in on the details in the next day or so.

anyway, off to feed the baby, and do playdough with the big girl. (is this vacation? sounds a bit like home!)
