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.
