One of my other favorite memories is the Big Country Breakfast at Salish Lodge. I used to go there with my mom. I remember going there with our whole family when Jacob was a baby and my mom gave him whip cream without Kim knowing. It was a great moment. The hot chocolate there is divine. The meal takes 2 hours to get through. By the time you are done, there is nothing to do except sit fat in the foyer of the hotel and take a nap. Sometimes, we'll venture down to see the waterfall, but sometimes, you just sit fat. It's a beautiful thing. If there is a heaven on Earth, then it is breakfast at Salish Lodge. I'm so glad my boys enjoy good food. It makes it a lot easier to plan fun excursions.
Once we were done, we drove over to the Japanese Gardens. It's always wonderful to just enjoy the peace and quiet of a Japanese garden. We love the winding paths, the ponds, and the stepping stones. It speaks to our love of adventure, exploring unknown paths, and enjoying peace and quiet.
With time winding down before our flight back, we headed back downtown for Ivars one last time. We also took in the Aquarium, which was pretty cool. Again, it was nice to see stuff without a lot of tourists. It made the whole experience a lot better. Once we were done with the Aquarium and eating our fill of clam chowder, cod, shrimp, and fries, we headed back to SeaTac and hopped back down to Denver. It was an incredible trip with some incredible kids. I'm so glad that they are a part of our family.
