Vacation-y Things Part 1

I actually just don’t have a title for this.

Alt title: MORE PHOTO DUMPING. I HOPE YOU LIKE PHOTOS BECAUSE PHOTOS.

So as I mentioned Saturday, brother graduated. Pretty proud of him. He had a sizable paragraph of achievements in the little graduation booklet thingy. I’m so very, very excited to see where he goes with his life (which at current is RPI but I do mean a more abstract sense as you might suspect…). At any rate we got some pretty cool pictures out of it so WHABAM pictures. We sure do have faces.

Look! Me and a graduate. We're happy siblings. : D

My dad and my brother make the best faces so I thought I would share them.

This is typical Brooks behavior and it is kind of my favorite picture ever right now. Yeah siblings~

Family. : )

And that was Saturday. Like I said, super proud of my brother (his name is Aaron, on a side note). He is a cool kid. : D Even with all the snark I am obliged to give him as his older sister.

Sunday and Monday have been pretty cool thus far as well – Grandpa (as seen in the closest photo above) is visiting from Florida this week, so we’re doing some of the more touristy things we wouldn’t do on a regular day. We’re “vacationing from home” is the phrase my dad used to describe it. And so far the weather has held up – not so hot I’m on fire, but warm enough that shorts are an option (although having a jacket around is a pretty good idea too).

And here are pictures regarding the happenings this week~

Crystal Mountain is a somewhat overpriced ski resort, but they have this new gondola and the view up top is fantastic, so tourist-y-thing-I-wouldn't-normally-do AWAY! : )

It was also the last day of skiing at Crystal so people were dressed up in costumes. I have no idea who those people are, but I sure do have a photo.

Mt. Rainier view from the top. Almost completely clear, but not quite. Still stunning.

Dat chipmunk. Living life on the edge. As chipmunks do. It seemed cool. Also I'm a chipmunk (or so I've been told) so there's that.

So more views! There were chairs set up. It was so calming and picturesque (and even cold, which was awesome).

Fair warning that I have this habit of going to museums and taking absurd amounts of pictures. Now, I have the common sense not to post most of them, and I even did a stunning job of holding back this time, but there might still end up being a lot of them because cars sure do look like they have funny faces. And stuff. So there’s that. This is in some way an apology. So there will be relevant things after the pictures if you find yourself no longer caring. XD

Also this is the LeMays American Car Museum in Tacoma, WA. I actually don’t know/care much about cars, but I can appreciate how old and cool these ones were. But I also took weird pictures to amuse myself so it’s not terribly representative of the museum as a heads up XD

 

I find these older looking cars snazzy. I took too many photos of them. I would drive one. :0

I am impressed (but not surprised) that someone made this a car.

Look how tiny that car is it's like for small wealthy children. I think that is actually what it was for, in all seriousness. VROOOM.

It looks angry so I pretended to be it. That is how people museum right? Right.

Other angle of angry car because I liked it a lot. XD

Old car tires apparently say, "NO SKID" on them. If they are no skid. It's just funny. XD

We were down by the Tacoma waterfront so we sat and watched some people go on a sketchy parasail journey. Smelled like ocean. : )

So there’s that! By relevant things after the photos what I definitely mean is rambling and also…the unveiling of a WORK IN PROGRESS of an art piece I am crafting. (Yes, use fancy words to build suspense)

Future things this week? Well, going into Seattle, boatloads of appointments (hair, orthopedic, dentist?), graduation party Saturday, hopefully a small hike, and…I got distracted. I don’t remember what the thing I was saving for last was…OH YEAH maybe even seeing friends who are here (both high school and college friends, which is snazzy).

And before I drag this out any longer (apparently my amount of blogging is awesome though, so I have just been informed), I WILL PRESENT TO YOU, THE KI-NONA-EEL

Actually, first, I promise next time to try and have more deep thoughts. This entry is hilariously…uh…I don’t even it just doesn’t have a ton of deep thoughts. I dunno. I like deep thoughts. Right now I am feeling a bit insane and weird though so you get that.

RIGHT. WIP OF KI-NONA-EEL.

It's a kitten with 9 eel appendages. ...I blame En-jay for this. At any rate, colors are quite subject to change. Kitten eel. : D

Lastly, as I mentioned previously, comments are always loved and appreciated. : ) Well, I shouldn’t say always, or someone will inevitably try to prove me wrong…

AND NOW TO PLAY KIRBY AIR RIDE WITH THE BROTHER.

Bai for nao~
