floating along...

Last week I picked Ethan up from camp and surprised him with an adventure out kayaking at Bothell landing. The weather was perfect and it was such a fun time.

Even though we have lived by this for a few years we had never been down to explore this area. We will definitely be back.

One thing off our bucket list is officially checked. Jeff and I got to experience a great dinner and overnight at the Willow's Inn on Lummi Island.

The dinner was an adventure for the taste buds with unique food pairings gathered from nearby. Plus, the lodging was a perfect escape to get away and unwind (and celebrate Jeff's 40th).

We were even able to borrow their bicycles and ride to a local winery. Definitely a perfect weekend escape.

fourth of july - oh my...

This past weekend we were out and about exploring the San Juan Islands to celebrate the fourth of July. 
The weather was absolutely beautiful with temps up into the 90's so we were able to enjoy all of the outdoors and even were able to jump in the frigid water of the Puget Sound. 
Cheers to family, boats, ice cream, and fireworks!!!

Oink, oink...

We have a house guest for a few days and it's like we are on the farm.  Meet the perfect lawn mower,  vegetable compost,  and Bindi's shadow. Puck!

rock 'n rolling through seattle...

This past weekend I completed the Seattle Rock'n Roll half marathon. Yay!! I signed up for this race several months ago and was a little hesitant since my last half marathon ended in me puking right after the finish line. Let's just say that the training I originally wanted to do did not turn out like I planned so it is a miracle we finished. But we did and we even ran some of it- go us.

green thumb...

This is the year that we are planting a summer garden. I have been meaning to start one since we moved and we've now lived here for quite awhile so it was time to start. Let's hear it for cucumbers, squash, broccoli,  and lettuce. Let the growing begin!

float on the waves...

What is better than enjoying this lovely pacific northwest weather?  Enjoying it on a boat. Let the summer adventures begin!
