Archive for February, 2010

On 2-13-10 we went to Pike Place Market. This was walking distance from our hotel, there was a neat lookout place before we crossed over the street. Unfortunately it was too cloudy to see the mountains in the distance. Grant did fairly well in the hiking pack/baby carrier. We at some yummy pastry and did a little shopping while at the market. Once we were tired, back to the hotel we went, and Grant took a nap. Mom ended up staying with him while Chris and I went to urgent care (due to my stupid cold). Funnily enough we watched more Olympics on TV in the doc’s office than we had up to that point since we were on the move so much. Basically it was a cold according to the doc and didn’t really need meds, but we got them just in case since we would be leaving the USA. Basically Sudafed, Afrin, and cough drops got me through the week. What an adventure. I think that was also the evening that we had dinner at the hotel, which took FOREVER. I ended up taking Grant up to our room and putting him to bed….that left me to eat my dinner in the bathroom so I wouldn’t disturb him. It was actually one of the better meals we had, the kitchen staff was just overwhelmed. What memories!

This begins a journey…a scrapbooking journey to log our trip to Seattle/Vancouver and the Olympic Winter Games 2010. I absolutely love the photo of the newspaper holders (no idea what they are called). I was hoping it would turn out so well! This is the view from our window at the Marriott in Seattle, Waterfront. We had an excellent location for our hotel. Very close to Pike Place Market, other shopping, an art museum, the tram to the Space Needle, Mars Hill Church. We could not have picked a better place. I totally give God the credit for that, he knew what he was doing when I searched for a hotel and so many were booked. Just the start of how God worked in our trip and set us up for a wonderful vacation experience. LO Credits: Karla Dudley Capture and Record, Katie Pertiet Spot Dots Olympics

A special birthday…

We recently celebrated a huge milestone for Grant…his first birthday. It was Friday while we were in Vancouver. We took some photos of him in his birthday shirt in the hotel room. This was the day that we went to Curling at the Vancouver Olympic Center, and walked downtown to see the Olympic cauldron. It was a special day, even if Grant has no memory of it. Tonight we let him eat some cake. The day of his birthday he slept through the rest of dinner and didn’t get any dessert. I guess he will have a month of birthday stuff because next week we will have his party. He’s a sweet boy and I hope that he enjoys looking back at these photos of his first birthday. I pray he will have many more to come and that we can celebrate with him as he grows.

Well I am a few weeks behind, but I can blame that on the Seattle/Vancouver Olympics trip…not a bad excuse! We had a great time and I can’t wait to make that scrapbook…it will be so awesome! I am considering a class that teaches you how to make a cohesive album. I think that might be a good one to take in relation to that project, but we’ll see. I need to catch up on this class first. Here are the LO’s for Week 6, credits for the kits go to Lauren Grier.

Well, there is one LO, I am having trouble uploading the other one…maybe I’ll try again tomorrow.

What is really amazing is that I am this far behind in Grant’s scrapbook….but I am catching up almost daily (really motivated right now). Just look at how much he has changed…his face has thinned out a bit, hair has grown…words are coming out of that cute mouth. Sigh. What a cutie.

Learning about white space…which can be useful in many ways when creating scrapbook pages. I like this page that I created…the butterflies are a little tribute to my mom (I know how much she likes them). Grant is almost 1 year old now…looking back at these photos just doesn’t seem real. I am so glad to have them!
