Museum of Flight

We finally made it to the Boeing Museum of Flight. We had a great time and I know we will find ourselves back here for many more trips as Oliver gets older. The museum offers a lot of hands on activities for kids of all ages – Chris can even attest to this!

Maybe a fighter jet isn’t the most appropriate first plane for Oliver to fly. I think a Piper or Cessna is a bit more his speed.

Oliver in a beret, who would have guessed it would happen so soon. On a recent hike his usual hat was no where to be found so he wore mine. Yep, this is one I knitted and I think he looks rather dapper. Now off to finish his new hat.

Twin Falls

A quick morning outing to Twin Falls and then we were off to get some BBQ.

It was a rainy day and we all suited up in our rain gear, even Mr. Oliver.

3 Days = 4 Hikes

That is Washington state math for you and we are loving it. I think it might be Chris’s favorite equation so far. We spent a long weekend by Lake Ozette, WA located on the Olympic Peninsula.

We stayed at a charming cabin. It was one step closer to actual camping with the little guy.

Electricity = Yes   Running water = No

Our first hike was on Saturday with the 9 mile Ozette Trail. It was a 3 mile hike to the beach, 3 miles along the beach and you guessed it 3 miles back. To get to and from the beach we hiked along a boardwalk path. Don’t misunderstand this was not a a flat walk but many stairs up and down and up again.

The pay off was seeing petroglyphs left by the Makah Indians. It was well worth all those stairs.

The next day we went as far west as one can in the contiguous United States – Cape Flattery.

After the Cape trail we were in the mood for some more hiking so we were off to ShiShi Beach. It was a great trail until the end with a 150 foot drop to the beach. It was worth every steep step down to the ocean. We will definitely be back to do some seaside camping here. Such a lovely spot and a lovely time with the guys.

On our way home we stopped to stretch our legs on the Lake Crescent Trail. The trail skirted Lake Crescent which made for some surprisingly beautiful views. We were sad to leave but happy to get back home to Gretl.

Friday’s with Oliver – Wednesday Edition

In a mad dash to get out the door on Friday for our weekend adventuring I forgot to post a pic of the little cutie. He can sleep just about anywhere and proves it!

Ramen

Chris and I were planning to go kayaking this weekend sans Oliver but the weather put a damper on that plan. We all went into Seattle both days for some shopping and just hanging out.

We had dinner at a little Japanese restaurant this weekend. Where not only I but Oliver had our first taste of some traditional ramen noodles. I went with the house special and happy to say that we both liked it – a lot!

This was snapped last Sunday after our hike outside of Leavenworth, WA while we hung out in a delightful “bier garten”. I just adore his expression.
