A National Tour Commences in the Great Northwest

After five years of living in the Northwestern United States, specifically Seattle, and with family just south in the state capital city of Olympia, we figured that the Great Northwest was a good place to start a trip across the country that will include seven cities in virtually every part of the US of A.
Paige and I both value relationships and have learned to keep in touch very well from afar, which means that, when we are finally back in town, the moments around the table with family and friends are numerous, memorable and savored.
Thanks to everyone up in Seattle and down in Olympia for making our welcome back to this great (some like me might say "the greatest") part of our country.
Check back to the Tuk-Tuk Talker for periodic updates from this cross-country trek over the next few weeks. Some more fun is in store...
1. Paige and I in front of the symbol of Seattle, the Space Needle.
2. With my cousins' kids - how they've grown (and been born) since I left the States in 2006.
3. Paige's brother's 6-month old, Zachariah.
4. With friends enjoying some classic Northwest Clam Chowder and the Olympic Mountain range at sunset. Good ol' Seattle: water, islands and snow-covered mountains all in the same spring scene.
5. Friends who are responsible for Paige and I meeting last summer. Dana, and yes, even Dave, where would we be without you?

Love it! Glad you were able to be here for a few days. This weekend we are looking at 70+ weather. I am currently looking out the window at the gorgeous blue sky. Bring Paige back we may be able to convince her that the NW is the best place ever!

Very happy for you Sean and for Paige, it must be so nice to be home-home! Jag undrar om du kommer ihåg någon svenska? ;-)
