SEATTLE {summer of 2015}

for summer vacay this year we went to seattle to visit babi and dziadek.  we had not been back to seattle since joshua was 3 --- i think:))  this was our 1st plane ride as a family of 5...i was kind of nervous!!!

we left for the airport EARLY one morning and there was so much excitement in the air!!!

a view of the cockpit!

this sweet little chickie made me the most nervous.  i had suckers, chocolate kisses, and every gadget imaginable!  she did great for the 4 hour flight!

ice!!  she loved the ice!!

the passenger beside joshua and i let him move over to the window seat.  josh took these beautiful pics of mount rainier.  

so happy to see babi -- and be on the ground in seattle washington!!!

babi watched all the kiddos and krys and i got to get away with mario and marta.
