This year is our 4th wedding anniversary and my husband (being the romantic he is) planned a secret trip for us. I had no idea where we were going...I thought maybe were going to Mt. Renier or maybe to Canada...maybe were going to Utah?? I had no clue. As we were driving there he had me read a book or look at the ipod when road signs would come around. When we got to Port Angeles I still hadn't figured it out. He had me duck near a crucial sign and when I looked up we were at a light and there was a very small sign that said "Forks West" I said "Oh look honey, Forks" (I'm so oblivious sometimes) He gave me this guilty look and right then I knew where we were going.

The actual "Twilight Tour" takes maybe one day but the surrounding National Forest is a must see when heading up that way.

This is Forks High School. It's kind of small compared to schools in Utah. There is this cute little flower and gift shop across from the high school and there is a map you can pick up in there that has all the sites from the book.

Here is the place where we stayed. It was right next to the high school. In fact we could see the high school from our room.

This was actually our first stop Bella Italia restaurant. It's where Bella and Edward had their first date. Where we sat was in a booth kind of off on the side of the restaurant...We like to think that was the place Stephenie Meyer was talking about.

Seattle Aquarium and Evan's B-day!

I haven't been to the Seattle Aquarium since I was a child. (I remembered it a little) We all went for Evan's birthday and had a good ol' time!

We discovered at the aquarium that Joe loves otters! He wants to buy one and put it in grandma's pool! I don't know about that though...
