Took Portia downtown yesterday to check out the capital building.


There was a nice little garden in the capital park Smiley


Great day to take a stroll because the weather wasn't 90+ degrees!

We're back, and what a fun time we had!
Portia got the window seat flying into Dubrovnik, Croatia.


If there are any GOT fans, you might recognize Dubrovnik and King's Landing Smiley We also spent the day at one of the many little islands spotting the coast, Lokrum island where Portia got to meet a peacock.




From there we made out way to Split and explored some of Diocletian's palace. He has a collection of Egyptian sphinxes!


We didn't linger too long in Split because our main Croatian destination was Plitvice national park! There was loads of hiking and spectacular views.


Zagreb was quite rainy and Portia forgot her umbrella at home...soooo no pictures there. But it was beautiful in Budapest so we all decided to hit up the baths! You might notice Portia is a little heavier too, that's because we literally ate cake everyday Smiley




Budapest has a zoo as well which we got to visit.


Vienna was only a train ride away so why not go? There were plenty of museums to choose from and decided on two. The Kunsthistorisches museum and the Leopold. The first showcased some Habsburgs' treasures while the other had art from both Klimt and Egon Schiele.




After a full 24hrs of traveling, we all took a rest in Seattle and made sure to introduce Portia to the troll. Some guy photobombed the picture and the zoom on his face is quite funny Tongue




Our 4th consisted of lots of sleep so not much happened. But today we're off to the coast!

Tomorrow we leave for our exciting adventure through Croatia and Budapest. Portia made sure to bring a backpack, passport, and her comfiest pair of Birdkenstocks Smiley We'll be gone for two weeks but when we get back home there will be plenty of pictures to share!

Yesterday was National Trails Day! We explored Woodard Bay with Portia.


It's a little sanctuary for various birds, seals, and bats.


We arrived a little too early to witness the bats fly out, but Stella and Portia seemed to enjoy themselves none the less.

It's been quiet over here but Portia did manage to persuade my little sister to take her to work. My sister is a baker and decorator at a cupcake shop Smiley Portia really enjoyed making lemon bread and felt she should experience a real bakery.

These two big mixers are mixing up vanilla and chocolate cake batter.


Portia couldn't help herself around all the chocolate cupcakes! Here she got to try the chocolate with white chocolate frosting, yum~


She even got to help frost a couple.
It was a looong night at the bakery but Portia enjoyed herself. Don't be surprised if she comes back a few pounds heavier Wink

Looks like Isaac had a wild time while sporting that shirt!
Portia accompanied us to Petco to get some little gold fish for our tiny carnivorous plant pond.

She helped us name them: Fillipe and Francesca

Yesterday was the Procession of the Species parade! It was our first time going and we're happy Portia could experience it with us. Participants either dress up as an animal or create a sculpture to parade down the streets!

Portia saw a deep sea fangly fish!


There was this bee-utiful creation  Cheesy


Unfortunately we didn't get a picture of the penguin. He was moovin' and groovin' so much but Portia was so happy to see one in the parade.

We made a lemon loaf the other night! Portia seems to be a natural baker.



It had to bake for an hour...soooo much waiting!



The wait sure was worth it. Mmmm <3

Portia the penguin arrived this last weekend - just in time to come along and meet the relatives in Eastern Washington (Spokane to be exact).


Here's Portia relaxing by the creek on my family's property.

My mother is actually building her dream home here.  

Tiny Portia decided to lend a flipper.  You can barely see her behind the wheel.


After a long day of work Portia decided to relax and take in the view.  I think this is the moment she realized what a wonderful experience this LV Swap would be for her.

Note - Sorry some of the pics are wonky.  Craftster picture hosting confuses me! The thumbnail reads as correct but posts sideways.
