Day 1....STILL in Washington

Well the plan this morning was to leave Seattle around 8:00 am. But of course that DID NOT happen. This probably had a lot to do with the fact that we stayed out WAY too late last night. We got together with some friends at a pub in Seattle and it was after 1:00am by the time we got home. And also there is the fact that Chris and I are both procrastinators. So when we finally woke up at 7:30 this morning we still had SO much to do.

After many hours at the storage sorting through things (in the pouring rain) we finally got a load of stuff in Chris's dads Explorer that we are storing in their basement for the time being. Then after a lot of organizing and MAKING things fit we FINALLY got the SUV packed as full as we could. You really should see how much stuff we managed to cram into this thing. It's a Buick Rendezvous. I had never heard of it before, but it's pretty nice.

We headed over to Chris's parents for a little while, and after we got loaded up with brownies, cough candy (I'm sick) and "burger bucks" we went down to Bryan and Andrea's for about an hour or so. Then we FINALLY got on the road around 8:00pm, which was only 12 hours later than we had wanted to leave in the first place. From there we headed down to Centralia and spent some time visiting with Uncle Bob and Aunt Julie and Grandpa and Char. Grandpa and Char got themselves a dog, we thought Belle had lots of energy until we met their little Lhaso Apso Jo-Jo, she is so stinking fast and so cute. Anyways we left there around 11pm or so and decided to spend the night in Chehalis. So now here we are at the hotel and Chris is happy cause he is watching ESPN news or something and this tv is so BIG.

So the plan is to get out of here early tomorrow morning...that's the plan, but we will see if that actually happens:)

States travelled through....STILL IN WASHINGTON--boy we got far today.
