Vampire Road Trip!

Family, Me, Travelcarla

Two thumbs up for Spring Break and Road Trips!!!!  Been quite a while since I have taken a few days off!  We took my daughter and her friend Breanna out to the Olympic Peninsula for a VAMPIRE ROAD TRIP!  What is a Vampire road trip you ask???  Well, long story short, Stephanie Meyer wrote a series of vampire love stories back in 2005 and she based the TWILIGHT series right out of Forks Washington.  (Did you know that Forks gets the most rain in the continental US??? ) My daughter and I read the books years ago and we thought it would be fun to take a little road trip and check out the TWILIGHT sites!

We started out crossing the ferry on Whidbey Island to Port Townsend, walked around town for a bit, then headed to FAT SMITTY's!!!!  Pretty much the best burger place in Washington.  My favorite part about this restaurant is the DOLLAR WALL.  Pretty much everyone who visits decorates a dollar and pins it to the wall.  At the end of the year, they take all the dollars and donate it to local charities, thousands and thousands of dollars!  So cool!

Sorry about the stupid blurry picture but you don't really want to know what I have been through trying to get this blog post up.  I seriously have spent over 5 hours trying to get this post up.  I hate my new computer, I hate windows 8, I have BIG, BIG, BIG REGRETS that I didn't just buy another Mac. Ugh.

Ok, moving on......we then went to Sequim and checked out Olympic Game Farm, so fun!!!!  I haven't been there in ages!  Dan and the girls had a blast feeding all the animals.  If you ever get a chance, you should go and check it out.  It was a little bit pricer than I rememeber.  For the 4 of us plus two loaves of bread it was $50.00.

After the game farm we headed West to Forks!!!!  We rented a "TWILIGHT" Room at the Pacific Inn Motel.

The next day we ventured around the rainy town to check out all the cheesy sites, so FUN!

We OF COURSE had to HAVE MATCHING SHIRTS (even Dan had to wear one)....They read "Rain, Rain Go Away I want Edward to sparkle today".....freakin' hilarious.  Guess you are going to have to read the book to know the reference! :)

I have a million more wonderful photos to share with you but I am having big problems with this blog post. I am now on my 6th hour and am finally giving up.  Hopefully I can solve this issue soon and start blogging again!!! Off to get some technical support!!!
