Picture Pick FriYAY: Seattle, WA

Happy FriYAY!

Miles took these from the rooftop of The Mediterranean Inn. (Where we stayed in Seattle.) The room was pretty inexpensive, the staff was great, and it was in a good location. The rooms were a bit on the small side and dated, but really not bad for the price of staying downtown.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend full of adventure or rest (depending on what you need most)!

Picture Pick FriYAY: Blue Sky and Powder

Good morning and happy FriYAY!

Today’s pictures are of Miles’ ski adventure with his brother Alex at Steven’s Pass in Washington State.

They hiked uphill with a special material attached to their skis that grips the snow. This form of skiing is called skinning.

Miles has been much more active on his Instagram account. This week his picture was shared on a pretty large Instagram account called The Clymb, so that was exciting for us!

Daffodils Baby!

Yesterday my little fam and I drove to La Conner, Wa to see the daffodils in bloom. We normally go a little later in the season to see all of the tulips, but we had the perfect opportunity to get away yesterday, so we took it!

We had a blue-sky drive, our son Leif was chatting in the backseat playing with his toys while Miles and I listed to Trampled by Turtles. We laughed and shared some of our day dreams. While driving on Interstate 5, I was humbled, as I am on every drive through our beautiful home state. The diverse landscape is truly staggering,  in a matter of 30 minutes we saw three different mountains (Rainier, Baker, Pilchuck), the Olympic Range, the Puget Sound, and fields of various crops. Spring in the Pacific Northwest is an incredible thing to behold.

My husband is an avid photographer. Some of my favorite shots of his are of the La Conner tulip fields. We try to go every year. Here are a few of Miles’ shots from yesterday.
