Lake Wenatchee

My oldest son and I traveled with the Boy Scouts to Lake Wenatchee last weekend!! We love to go camping but this wasn't real camping! LOL We got to stay in a cabin that even had a hot tub! We got there late on Friday night and settled in. Then on Saturday we loaded up the scouts and headed for Fish Lake.....after 3 hours one boy caught a perch and one of the dads caught a tiny bass. So back to the cabin for us. I relaxed in the hot tub for what seemed like hours. The boys just had fun being boys!! They ended up staying up late and playing a game called water spoons. The last day was spent just enjoying the scenery....there was a beautiful sunrise!! I really can't wait for our next camping trip!!
On the way home we stopped at the Ranger Station! :)

I have been tying to get out and about but it has been tough between the job search, kids getting ready then going back to school and trying to keep up with my household duties!!  

I did get a few books from the local library, that tell about all sorts of hikes and parks in the area.  

During the summer we did make it to Pt. Defiance Park.  

I love taking photos ..... especially of flowers :)
And of course I have edited these a bit but I think they turned out great!!  :)

We also made it to Titlow Beach just South of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge.

We need to discover more local treasures!!  :)

Camping at Dash Point State Park over Labor Day

 Tristan....He was happy to be camping.  It had been awhile since his last family camping trip.  He usually goes with his boyscout troop!  They even snow camp! 
 Here, Madison, Teddy, Audrey and David watch the fire.  They all were awaiting the roasting of the hot dogs and marshmallows!  Thinking about it makes me want more right now! :)
 Breakfast of pancakes and cocoa, cooked on an open fire....what could be better?
 A visitor that came along one morning.
A tiny sand dollar that we found on the beach.

Mt. Rainier.....

Sunday the 22nd found us at Mt. Rainier!  I didn't have the kids so it was my boyfriend and I with a group from  The photo above is part of the Kautz Creek trail.

This was a sign at the parking lot near the trail head.  It was cloudy so we never got a glimpse of the mountain quiet like this sign......maybe next time!
