*~* Aloha Friday *~*

Welcome to Aloha Friday!!!

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is a day to take it easy
and look forward to the weekend.

I'll ask a simple question for you to answer, nothing that requires a lengthy response.
You can leave your response in my comments -
If you’d like to participate, post your own question on your blog
and leave your link here
Remember to visit the other participants!
It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends ~
My question...
What is your favorite way to start the day?

My answer is:
Call it corney, but my favorite way to start the day is waking up next to my husband of 34 years!!  What else could be a great start to the day???
We are early risers even on the weekends...
I love starting our days (ususally weekends) with a cup of coffee on our patio.  We have recently overhauled the backyard which makes this time even more special.  The hummingbirds frequent the feeders in the early mornings which I enjoy so much. 
The quiet of the mornings are so calming to me and we speak softly to keep our conversations between us - so special!
What's your answer??

We recently travelled to Seattle to visit Son and Daughter-in-Law ~

It's always a pleasure to visit family and the beautifully green State of Washington!!! 
This trip was made more special by it being our granddaughters first airplane ride. 
Baby girl slept most of the flight and arrived with smiles!!

We all enjoyed having everyone together, it had been 6 months
since Uncle Bubba had seen his niece and Aunt Little Feet
hadn't seen her since she was two weeks old!!

Baby girl immediately took to her Uncle, who had her laughing all week ♥

For the last three years part of the family has participated in a
half marathon/marathon in the Seattle area. 
This was my 5th half marathon this year and
brings my lifetime total of half marathons to 12!!!

We were fortunate enough to catch the Dale Chihuly display ~ 
Trust me when I say if this display comes to a city near you GO.SEE.IT!!!
Absolutely fabulous display of glass blowing genius...

After 31 years and 4 trips to Seattle, SIL (PC) finally visited the Space Needle!!

Our visit came to a close following a backyard BBQ
with several of our Seattle 'family' in attendance. 
As you can see the Sun made an appearance!!

Until next time... Goodbye Seattle and all of your lovely greenery ♥ ♥
