Some are really small – like the size of a convenience store. And others, like Suquamish, are big resorts! And Suquamish is dog friendly! On Saturday nights, the Beach Rock Bar has live music….

Since all of us were together on this cruise, we had the ship’s photographer take a nice photo of us on formal night. Sandra, Chris, Kirk, Patty, Wilson, Sam, Beau, Ben and Jenny.
The last time we took a cruise that stopped in the Bahamas, we stayed on the ship and lounged by the pool all day. This time, we decided we wanted to walk around Atlantis and see all of the big yachts. We were hoping to see some really big catamarans, but since it was summer,…
Chris’ parents Kirk and Patty are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this year. They decided they wanted to take all of us on a cruise to celebrate! We decorated Kirk and Patty’s door. This was their first cruise and we were really excited for them! If you have been on a cruise, you know finding…
We are in Florida for a cruise and we had an extra day planned just in case there was a flight cancellation or delay. Luckily, our flight was smooth and on time. Since we had extra time, we drove up to see my Mum and her new house. We were just visiting my Mum a…
We met wedding photographers Brandy and Justin about 8 years ago in Las Vegas during WPPI (wedding and portrait photographers international). We were at a [b] School party hosted by another photographer named Becker. We all hit it off and we decided to meet up again the next night because we had so much to…
Join us on a tour of our Airbnb in Gouda, Holland! We learned that most Dutch homes in The Netherlands have staircases that are more similar to ladders! What do you think James the Poodle thought of the stairs? Watch our video to find out!

We decided to hike the trail around the Cliff Pond. It is listed as 3.2 miles so we estimated that it would take us an hour or two. That’s about the same distance as a 5k and you can walk that in about
We spend all day at Cliff Pond. Can you tell why we picked this campground? We floated in the lake all day and did a little fishing practice 🙂 and avoided the complications of the local beaches. We
We headed to Jo Mamas for breakfast. On their logo the â€˜o’ is a coffee bean which helps explain their selection, they have coffee and bagels and also bagel sandwiches. We each grabbed a bagel sandwich
