Seattle/Vancouver cost breakdown

Like I did for Hawaii, I kept track of what everything was costing me, and what I saved. It's not as drastic as Hawaii was, but still...it was a very good deal! (And could've been better if the rental car company didn't trick me into signing towards an extra $104. :( :( )

We stayed with close family friends in Everett, so that obviously helped us save big time.

I learned from last time, we did carry-ons instead of checking our luggage! A lot cheaper, and SOOO much easier! Traveling with 2 babies, I was a little worried that everything wouldn't fit. But Brett and I wore the same thing almost the whole time... ha! And we bought diapers when we got there, instead of packing a bunch.

This little trick I though of was a LIFESAVER! Teagan walks at the pace of a grandma, and we needed to hurry to board the plane! She had so much fun riding on the suitcase like this.

I got the PERFECT view of Mount Rainier! I promise it's much bigger than it looks from this angle!

Fruit snacks and Rapunzel. What could be better?
