Discovering Seattle.

It’s Friday afternoon and our weekend is almost here.  Which makes me realize I didn’t show you our fun adventure from last weekend – whoops!  We took advantage of a perfect cool Seattle summer day, packed up a backpack, and went hiking in Seattle’s Discovery Park.

It was much more of a trail hike than I was expecting (like paved roads), and it turned out to be really fun.  At the bottom of a giant hill we discovered gorgeous views of the mountains and the water.

And look who else got to come…

Now that we are living in the Pacific Northwest and there is all this fun outdoor adventure to be had, I am determined that we are going to have normal dogs that can do normal dog things – like hiking with us on Sundays!  Our city dogs are a bit pampered and don’t always behave well in public, but bit by bit I think they are getting the hang of it.

It’s so much more fun when we have them with us too!

Absolutely gorgeous.  I can’t wait to explore more of this park on a day when I have more energy.  Only had a few miles in me this time!

Time to keep moving…

Attempts to get a family portrait.  Probably the best you can do with two moving targets!

Days like this make me so happy that we live out here.  The air is cooler and different, and definitely in a good way.

I was always mesmerized when I saw the monuments in DC, and it never got old to drive or walk and around and see their massive presence.  Out here, I feel the same way about the mountains.  This could absolutely never get old.

If you can believe it, this coming weekend is Sarah’s LAST weekend here with us in Seattle.  It truly feels like she just got here, and I think I’m in denial that two months have flown by so quickly.

We are going to fill it with as much fun as we possibly can.  Have a great weekend!
