The first day of summer is such a great day. Not only is it the longest day of the year, it kicks off an amazing season. It’s official…
Summer is Here
So, what are your plans this summer? Anything fun or exciting? These terms are so relative. It’s exciting drinking fresh squeezed lemonade and exciting packing your bags for Peru. The first I might do, the second, not this summer.
This summer is going to be filled with great eats, beautiful family, and long days outside. Oh, and a book or two, I’m sure.
Just a few weeks ago we finished working on our 17foot Boler. I know, we got another Boler then realized it is far too big for our family of two and a pup, so we sold it. You can see those updates on my revamped Tumblr blog. That’s what we did this past spring – travelled to Vancouver, Seattle and Portland (those posts still to come) and refinished the 17foot Boler. Oh, and we made a headboard and jazzed up one of our guest rooms (photos to come soon, too).
For now, let’s check out some of those great eats I’ll be making this summer!
Remember I mentioned that lemonade? Well, this recipe is sure to excite.
We are headed to Glacier National Park again next week. Last year was so much fun, a tad cold, and we didn’t get to venture the whole going-to-the-sun-road so we hope to do that this year. This avocado mash is a great camping breakfast. Even if you’re not camping!
Lastly, how about something just a little sweet? Okay, a whole heck of a lot sweet. This pie is one for the tastebuds. Grab a spoon and eat up.
Overall, I hope you have the best summer ever. Stop by every once in a while to check out what’s new around 3ten. Life is an adventure and I love to have fun! See you again soon.

We recently spent three days in Seattle and it was amazing. This west coast city is one to visit, for sure. Here are some highlights of our trip – happy travelling!
Three Days in Seattle
After visiting Vancouver we drove down to Seattle and had some tasty eats and saw some great sights. Let’s go!
This place is so fun. It’s full of popular culture items ranging from music and movies to video games and comics. Give yourself a couple of hours and enjoy.
Our very first VRBO was a huge success. Check out our home away from home in Seattle; and that view!
We got City Passes so we were lucky enough to see this iconic building twice – once during the day and once at night. If you have the ability to see it twice, that’s awesome; if not then see it during the day.
Harbour Boat Tour
This is one tourist thing we wouldn’t normally do, however, with our city pass it was basically free. In the end, it was pretty fun. Our guide told us some great stories and a lot of unique facts about Seattle.
Where to eat in Seattle? The Walrus and the Carpenter is worth the travel. Check out the Seattle Eats post to see more.
Home of the very first Starbucks. Also, it feels like Seattle’s heart when you’re in the market. It’s warm, inviting and feels like the pacific northwest.
I’d tell you the story about this huge red octopus, yet it’s in the post – check it out and enjoy.
The picture below is taken from Kerry Park and Meredith Grey lives right around the corner! I know, I’m a silly Grey’s fan, but who can resist such a beautiful view?
Overall, Seattle is such an indescribable experience, you need to visit for yourself.
Pack up and go. Thanks for visiting and happy travelling!

Pike Place Market Seattle – such an iconic place. If you’re in Seattle, you need to visit Pike Place, it’s simply awesome. Spectacular views, vintage shops and great eats (which I’ll share this weekend). Also, if you’re like me, it’s that sign that hangs outside the elevator on Grey’s Anatomy. Yes, I’m a Grey’s fan, aren’t you?
Pike Place Market
First, find the sign – you can’t miss it. It’s at the end of Pike Street, right where it meets Pike Place.
Don’t be fooled, Pike Place is more than one little street. The Seattle Aquarium is even in Pike Place Market.
See! It’s big.
One thing that’s really cool about Pike Place is the variable rent that vendors pay – they pay a percentage of their sales. This is such a community oriented way of charing rent since it’s given some great artists and businesses their start. Love it.
The original Starbucks calls Pike Place home.
That’s me just after we visited the Seattle Aquarium.
Beechers – the best cheese. Go in, even for just a sample.
Overall, Pike Place Market is a must see while in Seattle. Go hungry and spend hours walking, eating and simply enjoying life.
Thanks so much for visiting and I’ll share some of my top (and not so top) Seattle eats this weekend. Bye!
