Epic Photo Bomb

Today is one of those days that I want to write about everything and nothing at all,  all at the same time.

That's not an easy topic folks.
So maybe, instead of trying to solve all the worlds problems, and tie it up pretty with a bow here on the bloggy poo, I think I will just share this... 

with a capital E




Brought to you by yours truly from my niece Savanah's, Super Hero Themed , 7th birthday party.
We were trying to capture the fact that everyone had on a super hero item of clothing.

Even Grandma and Grandpa Pellant were in full attire.
Aren't they just the raddest super hero's ever?
They are without a doubt my hero's!!
Man I love those two!

Well, there we all were gathered for the perfect photo opt and out of nowhere ...

Was it a bird?

Was it a plane?

No it's a Flying Zed Head!!!

Just in case you didn't catch it the first time here's another one. I tried to be upset, but I gotta say it was pretty damn hard to be ruffled by this silly kid! 

Here's what the above photo should've looked like. 
Such a great day celebrating my favorite 7 year old on the planet, Savanah !

Can you see why she's my favorite?

Oh but wait...
The fun photo's don't stop there from this day.
There was this one celebrity there his initials J.T.P

He's so cool

He's so hipster

He's Batman Jeremiah

What a Stud my bro is!!
I'm so glad he decided to grace us with his presence that day.
It's hard to catch a sighting of this Batman Jeremiah.
He's my favorite 22 year old.
Can you see why?

And since these photos have brought me so much joy I think I will end this blog with a quote about joy.
It's gonna be a real simple quote.
One I think you may have seen before.

"Don't you think daises are the friendliest flower."
Meg Ryan- You've Got Mail

Ok maybe two quotes ;)

Traveling Well

Hello There Beloved Reader

Please give me a minute while I dust off the cobwebs from this here bloggy poo. 
We hit the ground running as the school year wrapped up for my Fab 4. There was the usual end of the school year fanfare with graduations, concerts, award ceremonies, birthday parties etc...blah blah blah

And then it was time for the long awaited trip to the PNW.
This trip was like the trophy after a long tiring marathon that my Fab 4 earned this year as they transitioned from living in Redmond, Washington to Reno, Nevada.

We all couldn't wait to see sights like this...

The above photograph was taken at Cannon Beach where the classic 80's movie The Goonies was filmed.

So we of course had to take our own Goonies epic photograph.

Aren't my Goonies, I mean my Fab 4 so cute?

I read this quote shortly after we arrived home from our trip, it says;

"It is better to travel well, than to arrive."

It resonates with me because often times I can just be all about getting somewhere instead of just enjoying the ride.
As any parent I'm sure can attest, you really do just want to get there sometimes when you've been stuck in a car for umpteen hours with kids.
But, when we arrived here, my friend who lives in Astoria Oregon said to me, 
"Don't Rush!" 
Her comment stopped my vacation pace in it's fast paced tracks, and I thought to myself... yea Don't Rush man, Er... Yer on Vacation Dammit !!

Breathe deep this view.

That is one, of the many things I appreciate about driving old VW's, is that they cause you to slow down and enjoy the view.

And what a great view I have.

My view on this trip was not only filled with beautiful scenery that the PNW always provides, but it was overflowing with the people that make any and all places on this earth worth the trip.
Cousin Alison, Cousin Jeananne and the whole Pellant crew,Vita, Tia Andre, Promise, Samantha, Niki, Jentry and her girls, Uncle John, Amoure and Kalie, Tasha, Papa Russ, Gramma B, and Great Gramma... that means YOU!!

From my oldest to my youngest...

To my middles in between ...

There was nothing but breath taking views on this trip.

We had a wonderful time in Portland, Astoria, and Medford Oregon, and then of course our old hometown of Redmond Washington and Seattle. 
It was SO great to see family and friends and how life has changed over the course of this year in the PNW.
There were memories made that I will treasure and I know my Fab 4 will too, as we head back into the busy months of the school year.

And I can't say thank you enough to all who made this trip so special; Cousin Alison, Cousin Jeananne and the whole Pellant crew,Vita, Tia Andre, Promise, Samantha, Niki, Jentry and her girls, Uncle John, Amoure and Kalie, Tasha, Papa Russ, Gramma B, and Great Gramma.

We love you all so much. 
You made the PNW view that much grander.
