Flashback Friday! I'm baaaack

I took a little extended blogging break, but I'm back and wanted to quickly flashback over the past couple of months to get you back up to speed! There may be more to come, but this is the (blog) readers digest version :-)

I spent some quality time with my best childhood and lifelong bud Allison!

We took a tour on a duck with Captain Tenille (I kid you not)

Saw the market at night

Took at steam engine ride on the Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad

Saw a beautiful reflection

Felt the love at the Hoh Rainforest in the Olympic National Park

Braved the rain at Forks

To hang out with some vampires and giant wolves

Spent the night at a brothel - the Miss Kitty room at The Palace hotel was verrry nice

Took a boat ride to the San Juan islands

To eat some fish tacos

And see some whale tails!

Saw the Seattle skyline from a different perspective

We finished our week watching the lady elk show off for their man at Northwest Trek

Then my sister came to visit and we at some cheesey ice cream at a Taste of Port Orchard

Found some spawning salmon

Took in some mountain flowers at Tipsoo Lake

Went on the Savor of Seattle gourmet tour - yummmmy

Then I headed to Kansas City for work for a week and met up with one of my internet buddies, Cynthia (and her hubby John). Here she is eating up a big ole plate of gizzards at a neat place called Strouds.

Headed back home just in time to catch the end of the Western Washington state fair in Puyallup

More recently I was able to spend some quality time with my parents. Here is my Mom checking out the test dahlias at the Point Defiance Dahlia Trial Garden. Isn't she cute sporting her post cataract surgery glasses?? Love you Momma!

And finally we sought out an internet legend - have any of you seen a photo of this house in your email? I've gotten it a few times. Its really a piece of work! So many plants to water :-) It's right here in Tacoma!

Well maybe you can see why I had to take a little break! Its been a whirlwind around here, but I enjoyed every minute of it.

If you have a flashback to share please add your link here!

Sounds like you were busy during your break! I wish I would have known you were going to be in KC area, I'd have gone up to have lunch with you.

I was so excited to see all your vacation photos that I forgot to leave a comment on Saturday! I would love to visit your neck of the woods sometime soon.

You did such wonderful and fun things the past couple of months, Suzy! You live in such a picturesque part of the country.

Captain Tenille - seriously?
