Seattle- June 2015 Pikes Place, a Mariners game, and leaving port

I'm finally getting around to posting the last of our summer trip photos. 

We were in Seattle for about 24 hours before our cruise left. My grandparents and some family met us in Seattle for a Mariners game that night. We went to Pikes Place Market and then the Mariners game at night, where Gavin and Papa Mike caught a foul ball!

about to go on the cruise ship!

leaving Seattle! The kids fell asleep as soon as we got them to our room. We had a balcony so it was nice to let them sleep while we watched the ship pull out of Seattle!

Morning walk on the Jacksonville Pier!

We had such a fun morning! We went for a walk on the Jacksonville Beach Pier. It was beautiful (but super hot) out. Lots of surfers and paddler boarders, they were fun to watch. A Chinook flew right over us too, it was so cool! (see pictures below) then we stopped at Sonic after and Gavin and Lily got a ice-cream cone while I enjoyed a dirty diet coke

Life is Better with You

This last Saturday, we went to the beach and took dinner out there. It was the perfect temperature and the perfect night. I made this little video....

Gavin's All About Me Poster
Gavin today on his first day of preschool!

how cute is Gavin's classroom door?!

breakfast before school this morning. Daddy made Dinosaur pancakes!

Below is a video of Gavin leaving preschool

And just like that, Gavin is in preschool! Today is his first official day. Last Thursday, Jayden was able to take the day off and go with us to Gavin's preschool orientation. We got to see his classroom and meet his teachers. After the orientation, we went to lunch at Barberito's (We let Gavin choose and he chose Mexican), and then we went to Old Navy to get him a few school clothes. It was a great day!

Today, Jayden left for work a little later so we could all go to drop off Gavin at preschool together. Gavin was SOOO Excited! We dropped him off and he didn't even look back. I picked him up and he started to cry! He was so sad to leave preschool because he loved it so much. He cried all the way home too. Even after I assured him that he would be going back on Wednesday. I think he is going to have the time of his life!
