JoySchool Pilgrims & Indian

My parents came for Thanksgiving and we got to introduce them to Pho. I finally tried the veggie version, which is now definitely my favorite. Isn't it lovely?
Very grateful for family and food.
Then to Vancouver for all the regular stops including the luxurious hotel beds.

Broc spent the evening taking random photos.
Happy family in Whistler, where Broc got to snowboard.

We got to have our fun in the snow as well.


Olympic Peninsula

One final excursion with the Kerrs before they move to Chicago (tear). They hadn't been to the Hoh Rainforest yet, so we went to see what it is all about.

Then to La Push where the earlier stormy weather had made the beach a rollicking mess similar to our visit last year (apparently not the norm, though).

Then up to the Northwestern most point in the contiguous US: Cape Flattery. Needless to say, it was gorgeous.

And a gratuitous shot of our Goose with some geese.
