saying goodbye to WA

This week we went on most likely our last date in Washington as Washington residents.
We had a lovely dinner over the Snoqualmie Falls and talked about our next season in life. I find that saying "goodbyes" are deeply important. Though leaving WA will be different in many ways than leaving CA.

Here are some memories of Washington. Goodbye, Evergreen State! We hope to be back soon.

-Viewing majestic Mt. Rainer 2 or 3 out of 5 days
-Elizabeth saying, "It's like we're in Alaska!" every night during the summer because the sun didn't set til 10pm and the sun rose at 4:30am.
-Long bike rides down the P-town river
-Our home almost being flooded
-Our home almost being burned
-Shea accepting Notre Dame's great offer
