WA Vacation Pictures and Carmex Sticks Giveaway





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!


Thanks to Carmex I will be giving away a high-quality canvas branded beach bag identical to the one I recieved....  To win simply post something from Carmex that you would love to try!  Below is a picture of my bag put to good use.  One winner will win an identical bag filled with 6 Carmex Stick products (sans the towels). 

To enter, Please read the rules on the Rafflecopter form below and fill out your information.  US Residents 18 years of age and older only.  Good Luck to All!!!

Disclosure:  I received a sample from Carmex for review purposes and Carmex will also provide a sample (Beach Bag) to one of my readers.  I did not receive any form of monetary compensation for this post.

I just wanted to say how much I like the pictures of Larrabee State Park. I realize that there was, at one time, a giveaway in this thread, but obviously that's over, and I am just commenting because I like the pictures. I live here in Washington State (Seattle) and I'm often amazed at how much beauty there is in this state. Obviously, I have a huge Washington State bias. (I'm in Seattle). I don't think I've ever even made it to Larrabee park yet, and I'm definitely going to have to do that. Hope your vacation was perfect in every way.
