ROAD TRIIIIIIIP!!!! Girls only. Spring break 2016 was beach playing, ferry riding, island living, pillow fighting girl bonding tons of fun. It was a fun four days of glitter tattoos, vintage robes, s'mores, bubble baths, manicures, busted rafts with duct tape bandages cut into hearts, cream cheese bagels, rainbow hair chalk, unicorn everything, ice-cream parlor, shopping, sparkly swimsuits, matching outfits, sleepover hoodies, angry meltdowns, giggles, art projects and cabin glamping. Too much fun! And what was even more sweet is that this year Ella Bella had a SISTER to bring!!!

It was a chillier spring break but we still managed to get to the beach. Autumn and I braved it in with our rainbows and explored the first day but after that we left it to the crazy kids :)

The first day we got out in the water and said hello to all the creatures! Tiny crabs were everywhere. I was ok because I came prepared and wore my hunters that come up to my knees :)
One thing I really couldn't handle were the spider crabs. Right up there with how I feel about spiders in general.

On our second day we had a loungy morning and then ended up in Port Townsend for a day of lunching, shopping and ice-cream! This is the town that the movie, An Officer and a Gentleman, was filmed. And if any Gilmore Girls fans are reading gave me warm fuzzier because it reminded me of Stars Hollow. To. The. Tee...haha. They even had a troubadour!

We ate at this fantastic restaurant because we couldn't find Luke's Diner :) It was relish and I made a decision at that point to ditch this post baby diet and enjoy myself for a few days!
I just love these girls...

Olli was a champ this day and hung out with her little friends in her car seat for 4 and a half hours while mommies and big girls hit the pavement!
We did some damage and then headed back to the cabin for some more beach time. We didn't last long this time though! The girls called it quits and we went back to the cabin for warm baths, food, pjs, art and movies...and maybe a little snapchat fun too ;)

The next day we headed off to Poulsbo...another delicious, quaint, adorable, fun little town. Again, we ate delicious food and shopped till we dropped!

We ate at the cutest little diner that the girls had talked about for WEEKS! This is Abby and Emma's favorite place to get Ella has been excited to try the best spaghetti in the world at this particular restaurant :) They were also stoked about the really old (aka vintage) gumboil machine that took pennies!

Olli was a champ, yet again, taking her naps on the go and just giggling to herself along the way...

We found these ADORABLE little vintage robes at a thrift shop for the girls. As soon as we got home they put them on and we went to roast marshmallows!

Olli had a big day shopping again so she went home and crashed...
It was Olli's first ferry ride and the place she officially cut her first tooth! Daddy and the boys were here in Seattle but still having a special boys time. Luca just couldn't wait for all the girls to leave :) They went to the aquarium and basically ate and played anything and everything Luca wanted...he called all the shots! 

It feels good to be back together as a family again...Now to prep for our next big adventure...Our summer trip to Arkansas!!!
