  1. Family re-unions are really fun looks like you had a great time in Seattle ,loved the pictures with the pretty flowers. The 7 -alarm wing sounds challenging indeed but I don’t think I could do it .Those pastries and goodies look super yum!

    1. Thank you Nisha 🙂 It was a perfect holiday and lovely to catch up with the young nephew and niece. They were all grown up! The Taiwanese bakery was an unexpected goodness 😀 xx

  2. Fine photos of the spring blossoms and the pastries. Actually I don’t think I would order the 7-alarm wing challenge, but I do have a sort of guilty admiration for those who do.

    1. Thank you! Haha the 7 Alarm is not ideal for Anybody. Only a crackpot 🙂 So you get an idea about my personality. Hope you have been enjoying spring.

    1. Thank you Angela! It was such a wonderful holiday with perfectly blue skies and sunny days. Since Seattle is notorious for its whimsical rainy weather, we struck lucky. Thank you 🙂 xx

  3. Such gorgeous photos! I love cherry blossoms, I think they have to be my favourite. And that dog… beautiful! Is Oden The Mighty a golden retriever? I’ve wanted a goldie (who I’ve already named Finn) for many years now, though I’m not sure I’ll ever be fortunate enough to be in the positive to have one. They are wonderful dogs though.
    It made me chuckle that with the foodie challenge they suggest you order a recovery kit – definitely think I’d need one of those!! 🙂

    1. Hiya Caz, spring blossoms win the heart so easily. Thank you for the kind comment. Oden the Mighty is indeed a fluffy golden retriever who is approaching a chubby personality but hey I cannot complain 😛 I love fat dogs. Not that I be bodyshaming this wonderful fella.

      You have a boy called Finn in your mind already? How I love that! I have had two for sometime too. Their names are Frank Sinatra and Eric Clapton. And in my mind they woof musically.

      I would not even veer towards the recovery kit because that would mean going through the agony of it! But if you do, let me know. The Hall of Flame is no small feat. xx

    1. Oden 🙂 Though I believe I would love an Ogden too, going by my partiality towards Ogden Nash. Have you read him? He is adorable with his nonsense rhymes.

      I think I should go on a fast to atone what I put my body through! 🙂 xx

      1. No I’ve never read anything of his but I’m going to look him up.

        Oden/Ogden – I can now add failing eyesight to my list of woes.

      2. You are talking to one who wears an extra pair of eyes, so… Oden and Ogden are both keepers. xx

    I am impressed that you even attempted the hot wings, even if you could not quite keep them down!

    1. Thank you my lovely 🙂 I had to try. The niece would have been quite put out otherwise. And how can one disappoint a little one so 😉 xx

  5. Just the thougth of anything that spicy makes me cringe! Unfortunately, I’m not gifted with the ability to eat spicy food. But I’m ok with that 🙂 The flowers look so pretty! I love them!

    1. Ah well your stomach is a happy being and not complaining about mind-numbing heat in food. I have started going easy on mine.
      Thanks Kasia, spring’s loveliness knows no bounds. xx

  6. Always great times catching up with family. Looks like you guys had a great time. Mmmmm, those cakes from the Taiwanese bakery look divine. I think I would prefer that over the 7 Alarm challenge! Xx

    1. Thank you, my lovely. It was a bucketful of fun. I think the cakes would any day be a better bargain over the 7 Alarm, though if you are ever in Seattle, Wing Dome is a great place to devour chicken wings. xx

    1. Thank you Jo. Seattle is pretty. The evergreens and the volcanoes make for a scenic setting. And yes, it rains a lot, but I remember a summer three years ago when it was searingly hot. xx

    1. Hey Neek! It was a wonderful time to see the city. But then it is so pretty in all seasons. Her house is warm and inviting and she has just given it a makeover with hardwood floors, so it was a nice change. The hot wings were ooh la la. xx

  8. As always, what gorgeous photos! This sounds like an awesome trip….and those wings sound like death incarnate (although a wonderful thing to dare your friends to do after a few drinks 😉 ) xx

  9. Snohomish is lovely. I’m so excited for you that you got to visit! You went to the Pink Door! I’m envious! I’ve been wanting to go for a long time, and I have not made it yet. Glad you had a good visit! Terrific photos!

    1. I did think of you when I was there but we were strapped for time. The Pink Door…ah it was serendipitous. The plan was for the Elysian Bar which did not work out. One of our friends did not have an ID deemed appropriate enough by the bouncers, hence the Pink Door from sheer desperation to catch a bite after an evening of drinking. I loved the entire vibe of The Pink Door. Thank you for the appreciation as always. xx
