Well, we all spent today lounging around, clinging to the last remains of our vacation. As I said in my last post, we went to Seattle. We had been debating about taking a big trip like this on and off for about the last two years. Just after Christmas, we finally went ahead and pulled the trigger. Since then, we had been planning and saving out of every paycheck so we could afford to go kind of nuts. Which, for us, is still pretty tame. One of my biggest splurges was filling a large grocery bag at Uwagimaya with Asian staples I either can’t get at home, or are too overpriced.
Since we both hate delays and have a toddler to bring, we decided to drive. We were able to stop halfway both on the way there and coming back to spend the night at my Grandmother-in-laws house. Even better, we could stop on command to continue the fun of potty training in the great outdoors rather than in a plane.
In a past post, I talked about vacation and what art supplies I was packing. I stayed pretty true to the list and packed pretty light. With all the places we would be going and keeping on top of the kiddo, I knew I wouldn’t have much downtime anyway. I did manage to journal everyday. I did leave a few spots open to add sketches later. In some cases, drawing on the fly was just not an option.
So now, I will share with you a mix of photos and sketches from our fun week out and about.
