Coupeville

My mom came over from eastern Washington and picked me up in Seattle and we headed up to Whidbey Island. Both my mom and dad grew up on Whidbey Island in Coupeville Wa. It is really fun to explore a town that your parents are from. It is always really fun to hear my mom talk about the town she grew up in. Coupeville has definitely became more touristy over the years but is still so fun. There is a bakery called the Knead and Feed and they have the best cinnamon rolls ever, so of course that is what we had on Saturday morning for breakfast. We spent the rest of Saturday walking about the cute shops down town and going out on the wharf. That's where these photos are taken. 

We also went out to Ebey's Landing. Which has a great story that my mom always likes to tell. So I will tell all of you. Colonel Ebey was one of the first permanent settlers to Whidbey Island. Him and his family lived in a house on a hill right next to the sound. Well the Native Americans living in Vancouver BC weren't happy about American's settling on the Island came down by canoe and scalped (cut off the top of this scalp) Colonel Ebey. Creepy huh? I am pretty sure we talk about it every time we go to Ebey's Landing. I love the history and the old stories of the Island.

I have one more outfit post from this past weekend that I am sure I will share with you within the week. Hopefully I can squeeze it in with Thanksgiving coming up and also I am flying across the country to Georgia on Wednesday to spend Thanksgiving with Clark and I am so excited! Have a good week.
love, Carlee
