Vacation pictures post #2.

I'm finally sitting down to do a blog post. I am so behind! But I'm scheduling two other posts for this week, so I should be able to catch up. ;)
After spending time with our cousins and grandparents in Reedsport, we back up towards Keiser to stay with a friend mom has known for a long time. We stayed one night at her house in tents in her backyard (which was a lot of fun :D ) before heading up towards Washington.
After traveling for a few hours we spent the night in Olympia. The next day we were ready to head to our final destination: the Eddy's house! I know I was super excited to meet Rebekah, but all my siblings couldn't believe we were going to the house of someone I met online of all places. Thankfully, after about an hour there, they were more then happy we had come! In fact, if you asked them what their favorite part of our vacation was, they would tell you it was getting to visit the Eddys. :)
At mom's friend's house. We had a lot of fun. ;) 

Benjamin playing with her dogs. he loves animals!

Jesse had a lot of fun throwing the balls around. 

Kezzy with one of the dogs.

On our way to the Eddy's, we missed our exit and ended up at the Bremerton Navel Base. . .which was really cool because he had never seen a military ship before. (we're from Kansas, what did you expect? ;) )

Another picture of the ships. Since we were already late, dad didn't stop so we could take pictures, thus the horrible pictures. :) 

Abut an hour after we arrived at the Eddys, Rebekah and I were upstairs talking and it got really noisy downstairs. A couple miutes later her older sister asked us to come down so we did. . .and found all our siblings in the middle of a nerf gun war. You had to be sure to stand against a wall or else you would either get hit by someone running or shot by a 'bullet". It was so much fun to watch!

Loading a gun.

Playing legoes in the living room. 

The day we arrived it was raining! Mr. and Mrs. Eddy took my mom and dad out to look at the small apartment where my family was staying for the night.  

Rebekah and I and our moms. 

Playing a game!

Supper! Pizza and a salad bar. . .it was amazing! 

I mean, doesn't this pizza look amazing? Just looking at it makes me hungry!

Rebekah and I.  after being pen pals for over a year, it was amazing to be able to meet in person! It was also a miracle that it worked out. God is good!

So that completes our trip! I still have one more picture post I'll do but It'll be mostly scenery. We drove by some beautiful places on our way to and from Oregon! And or course, Cannon Beach was breathtaking. I just need to go through all those pictures before I post them. :)


  1. It was SO FUN to finally, FINALLY meet you Jesseca! :D I loved all the nerf gun war pictures. Sadly, I didn't take any, so I wasn't able to post any. :(
    Our family had a blast with y'all! Especially my younger sisters who also now have pen pals in Kansas just like me! ;)

    1. I didn't actually take any either. . .mom must have taken them when we were upstairs. ;) I know my sisters are having so much fun writing yours! :D

  2. That sounds like so much fun! Thanks for sharing Jesseca. And I'm looking forward to all the other scenery pictures. :)

  3. Yes! The nerf gun war did get a bit dangerous. And didn't you love getting up so early in the morning?

    1. Hehe, yeah, it was fun to watch. ;)
      I didn't mind getting up early. And the walk definitely made up for it! :)

  4. I love the pictures. :D AUGH! LEGOS! I WANT TO PLAY LEGOS! :D I love Legos soooo much. I have tons of them...

    Thanks for posting the pictures. Looks like you girls had a blast together. I love the ships, I think they're just the coolest. My grandparents used to live near there so I got to see them a lot. Thanks for posting!

    1. Legos are a lot of fun!
      The ships were a lot of fun to see! They were huge!!

  5. Looks like so much fun! Haha nerf wars are the best :D I had one of those with my brother and his friend the other day!

  6. I thought I'd already commented on this...obviously not! :)

    Looks like y'all had an amazing time! Oh, those ships look cool. We toured a aircraft carrier in Charleston SC a few years ago. It was AMAZING!!! Sadly, I don't have any pictures of it.

  7. How super! Those ships are cool! Sounds like sooooooo much fun!
