Aloha !

Aloha means hello AND goodbye (and about 100 other things) - so it is a good word to use today. We left Maui yesterday afternoon, and woke up in Seattle this morning.

MAY I just say, it is SO FUCKING COLD HERE. And it's not even that cold, I know. But I am freezing my tail off. It made such a huge difference to be met at the airport - we were cold and tired and disoriented, and then suddenly, through the clouds of breath, I saw headlights flash, and then Leigh jumped out. We had bags loaded, carseats buckled, and we were headed for the exit in 10 minutes. SO much easier then lugging all of our suitcases and sleepy children on to the rental car shuttle, then waiting in line to register, etc, and then driving through the dark trying to read street signs and exit numbers.

Today was a big day - we went to a waterfall, then to a brewery, then Target, then the Science Center, then out for pizza. Tomorrow will be equally exciting. I can't wait. It's just so nice to be here with friends....we miss home, but at the same time we are so excited to be seeing Leigh and her family.......

So this is the beginning of our very big adventure. I will try to post every day, but no promises !
