SUNDAY, MAY 27

We found a great coffee shop before leaving the city of Edmonds: Walnut Street Coffee. They had Mighty-O (vegan) donuts and vegan cookies! Todd only tried a bite of each, which meant more for me!

The Wedding of Ken & Daisy
Part 1: Before the wedding
5/26/18

SATURDAY, MAY 26

This was a special day spent celebrating the wedding of our fellow vegan friends, Ken and Daisy. Eric and I used to regularly mountain bike with Ken in the ‘before Todd’ era. Those were special times!

{{ Taking a short break to reflect on so many great memories! }}

Ken at Roslyn, WA (“Rat Pack”) – 10/02/10

Interestingly, Ken actually met Daisy right before we found out that I was pregnant with Todd…which means we’ll always be able to remember how long they’ve been together! Right when I met Daisy (at a vegan dessert party…Mmm), it felt like I’d known her for years. I could also plainly see that Ken was in love!

Their wedding day started early for us because we had to drive to Edmonds, WA. We had to wake up this precious face…

5:36 AM

In Edmonds (and a little bit ahead of schedule), we hung out near the ferry dock.

At 10 a.m, we met the bride/groom and others from the wedding group, and the ferry was scheduled to leave at 10:30. Todd enjoyed chasing Daisy and holding her hand in the covered walkway. After boarding, he immediately wanted to go inside…

Snacks @ 10:45 am – May 26, 2018

In Kingston, WA, we found a grassy area with a stage and some art/craft booths. Todd played with hula hoops, while Eric located some coffee…

For the return ferry trip, Todd spent a little time on the deck before going inside the vessel…

Here’s the picture that Eric took of Todd in the ^^ above video…

Back at the Best Western Plus Edmonds Harbor Inn, Todd and I checked out the pool. Both the water and the air temperatures were a little cooler than we’re accustomed to (at home), but it wasn’t too bad…

A little cool!

Flying leap

After swimming and before the wedding itself, we tried to facilitate a nap for Todd. He seemed tired…but wasn’t able to fall asleep.
