First the Vacation Part.....
I have been gone for a while. We just returned from Summer Vacation where we had a blast. This year we went to the Pacific Northwest - SO much fun.
While we were there we did everything from sledding (yes! sledding in the summer) to water slides at Birch Bay and Tubing on Whatcom Lake. We visited Larrabee Park and even though we did not see any Seal Pups, we did see hundreds of Purple star fish and a few hermit crabs. I took a side trip to Stampadoodle, a wonderful Stamping / Papercrafting store. Oh, and how could I forget??? We also had one ER visit for a potential case of appendicitis - thankfully it was just a virus.
Thanks to my MIL, SIL and BIL for planning such great activities - the ER visit obviously not included..... Check out the photos below! The Mount Baker and Hospital photos were taken by my SIL and the other photos were taken by me using my iPhone via my favorite App, Hipstamatic.

Now for the Giveaway Part.
As part of the Carmex Blog Squad, I am fortunate enough to try new products. Right before we left for Vacation, I received a great gift from Carmex - a huge beach bag filled with an assortment of Carmex Products which were immediately divvied up nicely between the five of us. I quickly snagged the new Pomegranate for myself. For all of our outdoor activities I made sure to take a tube of spf 15 Carmex with me - from sun to snow, the girls and I were constantly using Carmex to protect our lips! Good timing Carmex!
