Hi everyone! I've finally gotten over my almost WEEK of abandonment at the beginning of the month when the peeps went to Washington for their vacation.
I think I'm finally able to talk about it and share a few pics
***Mom's note*** Yes, I realize that looking at someone else's vacation photos are about as exciting as watching milk curdle, but I picked out a handful of faves just to share some of the fun we had (despite being pugless).
The peeps flew to Seattle and then drove straight to Ocean Shores, WA where Mimi and Pa rented a condo near the beach! This was Holden's FIRST trip to an ocean, so Mom captured the exact moment. Look at Pa smiling in the background!
His exact words were "WHOOOOOAH!"
Mom and Holden wanted to bring this guy home for me...but dad talked them out of it!
He said that he wouldn't smell very nice by the time we got back home!
Mimi and Pa took us a bit north to Olympic National Park to a beautiful place called Ruby Beach
The peeps spent the whole day just collecting stones, walking along the shore and just seeing things that they don't see at home. Those big islandy things in the background are called "sea stacks".
Mom searched all over the beach for Tweedles' friend, Puff! We didn't see him, but we did see some other friends that said they knew Tweedles.....
Starfish and some Sea Aenenome!
Uncle Scott (mom's brother) joined them back in Ocean Shores and the next day, they hiked all the way around Brown Point. Mom loves this picture of all of them....
That's Daddy, Pa, Mimi, Holden, Mom and Uncle Scott! All that's missing is ME!
The last day of their vacation was spent in Seattle, and they spent the entire day down on the waterfront and wandering around Pike's Place Market! You know...the place where they do THIS:
***MOM'S NOTE*** We didn't take this video...it's borrowed from YouTube. It was SO crowded, we couldn't even get close enough to see any fish tossing!!!
Mom found her "Mecca"! The original Starbucks!
I guess I wasn't COMPLETELY forgotten...because they found a cool store in the basement of Pike's Place called Animal Gifts and Collectibles where they found THESE:
PUNK ROCK PUG
The humans came back all sandy and had weird shells and things for me to sniff, and they PROMISED they'd take me with them next time!
