Our Time in Seattle
We had a wonderful time together in Seattle and got to do and see so much! Sunday and Monday we spent the day in Downtown Seattle. We went to the Space Needle, Colombia Center Skyview (you can go to the 73rd floor of this building and see an incredible view of Seattle), the Aquarium and Tully’s Coffee Shop. We walked basically everywhere we went but did ride the buses some and used the Monorail once. We enjoyed one particular part of the city where Tully’s was located and went there many times to rest and let Dave enjoy a good cup of coffee! On Tuesday (our anniversary) we took a boat up to Victoria, Canada for the day! That was an adventure as the wind was high that day and the boat ride was rough at times. I was fine as long as I kept my eyes on the horizon. Interesting how that really does work.
Before we hit those ruff waters, we booked a 3-Hour Whale Watching Tour. I was really nervous about going back out into the seas since it was so windy. But we survived and did get to see some beautiful wildlife out at sea. Although this particular tour has 90% average of seeing whales, we ended up in the 10% that don’t get to see whales. 🙁 But we still enjoyed the tour (minus the rough waters at times) and are so glad we had the privilege of seeing all we did see. We took some gorgeous pictures out there. I counted up the hours we spent at sea and it totaled 8 hours! No wonder when we were lying in bed that night trying to go to sleep we felt like we were still rocking at sea.
We are grateful for a wonderful first year anniversary trip, but we are even more grateful for our absolutely wonderful first year of marriage. We were told by many people on many occasions that the first year of marriage is always one of the toughest but our first year has been one of the best years of our lives! What a blessing for both Dave and me to have grown up in a home witnessing the godly example of marriage through the marriages of our very own parents. Now being married for a year, I realize what a tremendous blessing that was/is for both of us.
Today was Day 5 of Clomid pills and I am happy to report I have not experienced any of the negative side effects from taking the medication. Thanks for praying! Tomorrow is the big day where I go for an ultrasound to see how my ovaries have reacted to the Clomid. Keep praying Dr. L sees those 2-3 maturing follicles in there!
If everything goes well tomorrow, insemination day is only 6 days away! Pray, Pray, Pray!
