Where's That Pig?

While I am trying to figure out what direction to take this electronic cesspool, I thought I would give you all a quick update on the latest adventures of our favorite bovine.

Fernando stowed away in our carry on bag and traveled up to the Pacific Northwest with us last week.  My wife's family are all up there, mostly in a Seattle suburb called Bellevue.  The trip was some fun, and some not so fun.  We always enjoy seeing the family, but this trip was rainy as all hell, and we also were on a mission to find my wife's dad a facility to move into.  He doesn't need full blown nursing care, but really does need a bit of assistance with some of his needs now.  So we checked out some places and there are a couple of promising leads there.  That is always a tough time.

So back to Fernando, what was he doing this trip?

Let's check it out!

We checked into our townhome that we like to stay at and Fernando immediately wanted to check out what was going on outside.  He wasn't particularly enthralled with the rain.

So we headed on over to see grandpa and check out what was happening.  Fernando thinks he could live here just fine if the water works stopped.

With nothing to do outside, Fernando decided to watch DVDs with Skyler.

So after a couple of days of family stuff and being bored, Fernando asked to go downtown to the Pike PLace Market.  That sounded like a great plan to us.

Fernando decided to ride along on Skylers tray where he could get a good look.

he enjoyed the views of all the shops and had fun checking out the crowds and food.

We stopped for lunch and he checked out the waterfront through the window.  Still too rainy...

Skylers favorite cousin, Kirsten, and Fernando got along great.  Skyler still only has eyes for Kirsten though.

Wait a minute!  What the hell is this?  A giant bronze pig that Fernando got to know!!

Kirsten bought a small ceramic flute to take on her raft trips, Fernando decided to see if he could play.

That just isn't right...

Look at all the friends he made along the way!

After fernando takes a trip up into the mountains with me, he might just be packing up and moving along.  I will keep you all up to date on where he is going!
