ferry trip

"mommie on our next vacation can we come back to seattle so we can go on the ferry?" that is what nani asked me as we were returning back to seattle on the ferry from bremerton, last monday. to say the ferry was a good choice would be an understatement! the girls absolutely loved it! mitch and i thought they might have fun, but didn't expect them to enjoy it so much!
it was a perfect day for a ferry ride! we caught the 8:45 morning ferry to bremerton. as you can see the sky was a gorgeous blue, with a bit of early morning cloud cover. the girls loved every minute of the ride.

once seattle was out of view, we went inside the ferry to get out of the cold and to get some "breakfast". actually, the girls got a bag of popcorn and i had some ivar's clam chowder to warm me up. mitch and tutu lady were the only ones that had breakfast food. here's a cute picture of tutu lady and lala after breakfast:
the girls found a video game and "played" it while i took the camera outside. i played around with the aperture, exposure, and shutter speed to get some great photos. it was interesting because with the sun behind me the sky was blue, but as i shot towards the sun is was more orange. here are some of my favorites:


this picture is probably my all time favorite. nani's hair and expression are priceless! you can tell she is enjoying the experience immensely!
here we are back where we started the morning, minus the morning clouds! beautiful!

Those are some great pictures Mahina. I love the one of Seattle from the ferry with the cloud cover. What a fun time for you guys.

That looks so fun! Another thing I must add on my list of things to do with family.

Nani looks like she could be lifted up by that wind in her state of nirvana. :)

We're back on your blog again. I was sitting here reading someone else's blog. Cole comes sitting on my lap and says "I want to look at those pictures." As he starts scrolling down he says with disgust "Hey, these aren't Lala! I want to see pictures of Lala!" So here we are again.

THose pictures were beautiful! I was jealous of your parents' trip with the kids - I am missing my distant grandchildren this week.
I thought Nani looks like Malia with her eyes closed - or maybe it was just the expression of savoring the moment. I read your blog faithfully, sorry I don't leave comments more often.
