Day three (well counting full days anyway) in Seattle! On day three, I went with my sister, neice, nephew, and my daughter and son to the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium. It was another beautiful day and we all had a lot of fun.

The first pic was just a quick no makeup shot showing some of the sun I have gotten despite my liberal use of sunscreen. The other pics of me are just more shots of me enjoying the nice lighting in my sister’s house after I got ready. I took one out in front of her place too.

I included a few of the shots I took at our destination. They are pictures of jellyfish, a Sumatran tiger, and a walrus.

After the zoo, we went to whole foods for some drinks and groceries. The final pic is me waiting in the car as my sister finishes strapping my nephew in his car seat.

I am posting this the evening of day four and my eyes don’t want to stay open. So I may or may not be completing another post tonight describing our outing from today to downtown Seattle.

Regardless, the message from Seattle is that we are having amazing weather and great fun out here. Yes, I did hear the news of the idiot in chief’s latest tweets about banning transgender people in the military. The fool could not even get the use of the terms right and basically called us all a slur.

I salute and thank every transgender person who is serving or who has served or who will still serve in the future. Just as no one can actually stop us from using the correct bathrooms, no one can actually stop us from serving if we want to do so. Good luck enforcing this nonsense you puppet of the FRC.

Take care all,
Luv, Ari

Hello from Washington! As those that follow me know, my kids and I have flown out to Seattle to visit my sister, brother-in-law, neice, and nephew.

The flight (first pic) was great and on time. After we got settled in at my sister’s house and I had some down time, I took a few selfies and fell in love with the soft lighting and the colors they decorated with. The light in their house is very kind to me. Picture number 6 above is my new absolute favorite photo without my glasses. Pics 7, 8, and 9 were from when we all went to the Sequim Lavender Festival where I had a yummy lavender hard cider. On the way home we went to Port Townsend. We watched cruise ships leaving their harbor as we waited for our table at Doc’s Marina Grill. The meal was incredible. The last pic was from today as we were exploring a dock and watching jellyfish swim in the town of Gig Harbor 🙂

More later!
