Seattle

From Justin:

The temperature today was 61 degrees here. First, we saw Mount Baker. It was from afar, but it was very beautiful. Then we went down to Seattle from Bellingham and met Britt and Nat … and went to the Space Needle, courtesy of Bob's friend, Ron Maderious. The Space Needle was awesome! We got really expensive meals in there. The food was great! Ron didn't even know me, but still bought me dessert, so that was really nice. And then we took a tour of Seattle with Britt and Nat. They were excellent tour guides!

Now we're heading south again, so all of our stays are pretty short. We're heading south to see Bob's nephew, Alex. We're about 10 minutes away from visiting him. So we're approximately an hour south of Seattle. I'm not sure if we're going to get another hotel after that ... or drive a little while and get one. But it's in the cards to get another hotel tonight. It has been a great trip so far. Everything seems to be working out in our favor because God is with us. Well, that's all, folks! Have a great night!

Hi Justin,

Just wanted to say thanks again for stopping in Seattle to see us. It meant a lot to spend the day with you. I wish you the best of luck on the rest of your trip. I'm so glad all variables have been in your favor. You are a wonderful person and friend, and I'm grateful to have you on my life.

Love you,

Britt

Hola J,

I agree with you Justin, the Space Needle Resturant is the home of 'high' prices!! Can you believe $25.00 for a cheeseburger??

Like Britt said, thanks for coming to our area and sharing time, it means a lot. You really did bring sunshine, yesterday was the most beautiful day of the year.

There is an old adage 'you tell on yourself by the company you keep......' Justin, you keep in great company. I'm glad I was able to meet two more great "J-Teamers", Britt and Nat.

Please tell the 'roadies' thanks as well. Your are traveling with a great crew.

Hugs all around,

Uncle Ricky

Hi Justin,

It was great to see you yesterday. I really enjoyed reminiscing, swapping stories and sharing a few laughs. Maybe I didn’t tell you, but that was my first trip up the Space Needle, too, and I live here! And I finally saw that picture of you and Dana White – that’s classic!

I also really enjoyed meeting your road crew. I don’t think young man could wish for a more loving and caring family. Great people, I hope to meet them all again.

Britt has always spoken the world of you, and I have to agree with her that every bit is true. A friend of hers is a friend of mine.

Take care, Justin. We’ll be praying for sunshine and safe travels (and cheaper cheeseburgers).

Nat


P.S. Make sure your Dad gives Bob a break from behind the wheel. He was looking a bit tuckered J

Kuke,

Just wanted to stop in a say hello as always just keeping tabs on your journey. I hope you and the family are doing well. I am looking forward to hearing all about the trip upon your return. Have a great day and safe travels. I'll be praying for the good weather to keep shining down on you guys for the raods ahead.

JJ and crew,
sounds like you are having a fun time, thank you for the beautiful picture! Are you heading on down to San Fran? We went there when Alexa was one just before we moved to Texas, beautiful city, can't wait to hear how Bob manuevers that big home on wheels thru those streets- heard he has some awesome driving behind him already! Thanks for updating us everyday JJ, we race home to find out what you have experienced today- sure is fun for us so thank you for sharing with us. Give all a hug from us we love and miss you all, Shanny
