Mt. Washington…and then some

Sunday, May 16th, 2010

Yes, there is a Mt. Washington in Washington…not just in New Hampshire as some people think. Mark, Sabine, Kuja and I decided to make our way up it until we found a nice place for lunch. The hike gave our quads a workout, our eyes some nice views, and Kuja got to release a lot of energy. What more could you ask for? Maybe a little swim at the end? We got that too when we stopped by Rattlesnake Lake at the end of the day!

Spectacular Saturday

Tuesday, May 11th, 2010

Saturday was one of those days when I’m reminded why I love living in Seattle. We obviously love getting out into the woods on a very regular basis, but sometimes its great to just have a city day. Samuel Hunter gave us a great excuse to stay in town, and we started off the day with a birthday celebration for him in Volunteer park. The UW architecture school provided some excellent new (adult) friends for Sabine and a couple of hours in the sun with good people and good food was just the ticket.

Then in the evening, we headed to Paseos to grab sandwiches and then into the dunes at Golden Gardens park. The evening was threatening clouds, but the sun broke them up and we were treated to a perfect evening. More friends, sand, a good laughs ended our great day.

Who needs toys?

Who needs toys when you’ve got a backyard, a puddle, a dad, and a dog?

Sabine’s recent fun

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

Sabine’s been having some new fun around here recently. Last week we went to the park at Greenlake and played on some new toys.

Then today Sabine and Kuja got to enjoy her new table…just for her (and Kuja!)
