Olympic Game Farm

Well, this adventure was a hoot!  The Olympic Game Farm is a drive-through game reserve.  Animals here are retired from jobs in the movies.  When arriving we had the option of purchasing bread to toss out the windows, but frankly, most of the animals had no patience for that and came right up to the …

The Lavender Farm (and baby bunnies)

This morning we visited a nearby lavender farm.  Boy, it was humming with bees!  The owners also happened to have baby bunnies on the premises, which was a huge hit with the girls (and the grown ups). My Uncle Peter and Uncle Owen. Cousin Kaela with boyfriend Trevor. Squeal!  Look at that little thing.   …

Sequim, WA

Today I packed up the girls, picked up my mother and off to the ferry we headed for a week in Sequim with my mom’s family.  Linlee has been on a ferry before (one time, I think), but this was Holly’s first time.  She reports that it was “awesome!” and she liked the wind in …

Sorry for the break.

We’re still here and doing well.  Just super busy.  I’ll be taking the girls and abandoning Rob next week for a trip to Sequim with my mom’s family.  If I can get online, I hope to update the blog while there.  If I can’t get online, there will be another week of no updates.  Be …

Horseback Riding

I brought my camera with me to the girls’ lessons today, just to continue documenting their progress.Ready to ride (even though it was beastly hot!). Linlee leads her favorite horse, Millie.  She and Millie have a special relationship.  A few weeks ago Kathy, the instructor, suggested that Linlee ride one of the other horses and …

Home Again

Our drive home from the beach was very long and hot; seven + hours due to accidents (there were many) and heavy stop & go traffic.  Holly had a complete meltdown by the time we finally stumbled out of the car and into our 80º house.  Seattle is having a heat wave – BOOOO.  We have …

Last day at the beach…

Oh, this has been such a fabulous week at the beach – we don’t want to go home! This year Miss Linlee spent the majority of her time playing in the sand. She is “posing” for the picture.  Ha! This one spent half her time in the air.Um??? They were both sitting in holes that …

Still hanging out at the beach!

In addition to spending our time frolicking on the beach, we’ve visited an aquarium, rode a carousel, gotten the girls portrait drawn, done some shopping, played at a park and eaten delicious strawberry crepes at our favorite creperie in Cannon Beach.  What an awesome time we are having! I think the artist did great with …

More Cannon Beach

Haystack Rock Linlee did not play in the waves this sunny morning, but preferred to work on sand castles and sand drawings. A sand drawing of the three little pigs in front of their houses and the big bad wolf. We walked over to explore the tide pools. Cute picture of the girls with Mémé. …

Cannon Beach!

We’re at the beach.  Holly asked if “we were there yet” about every five minutes all six hours of the drive.  Yes, we are now there. The girls with Grandma and Grandpa.  (Rob’s father is reminding me an awful lot of Rob, don’t ya think?) Such a little crack up! Beauty. Holly and Mommy (also …
