Lodge Life: Week 17

We had a really fun week this first full week of summer. Boy did it feel like summer — until the weekend that is. We’re in major sprinklers, wildflowers, picnic + beach-mode over here these days! The temps really started to climb right out of the gate last week. Sadly, that meant I had to […]

Lodge Life: Week 16

We had a really lovely week last week out here at The Lodge. The kids have been bonding in the sweetest ways and are really forming a friendship. It warms our hearts to see them playing together. For the most part we were just at home last week, playing in the yard. I did take […]

Hannah is 23 Months Old!

We’re one month away from having a two-year old!!! Honestly, though, we keep forgetting that she’s not two yet because she’s been acting like it for a while now. Hannah is so precocious. Hannah’s 23-Month Stats: Weight: 26 pounds, 6 oz {88th percentile – as of 1/22} Length: 32 inches {60th percentile – as of […]

Lodge Life: Quarantine Week 14

While much of the country seems to be loosening its restrictions for the pandemic we’re still very much hunkered down here in the mountains. Washington state is doing a phased re-opening by county. Where we are is still very much in phase one of re-opening, which essentially means nothing is open. It’s certainly been feeling […]

Lodge Life: Quarantine Week 13

This has been a week filled with emotions on both ends of the spectrum. We’ve had an absolutely incredible week, as Alex took the whole week off of work and we celebrated Ben’s fourth birthday. While we were out having fun it seemed like our country completely fell apart. My heart just aches for the […]

Ben is FOUR!

Ben sure has been starting to act like a four-year old the last few weeks! His independence, imagination and creativity have been exploding lately and we are so excited to be celebrating Ben’s fourth birthday today. Ben’s stats: Weight: hopefully more than 33 pounds {this is so out of date!} Height: around 41 inches {also […]

Lodge Life: Quarantine Week 12

Our twelfth week at The Lodge was one filled with activity and adventure. There was hiking and trail running, sprinklers and projects galore. Each day we’re realizing just how much we can do without getting into a car. That said, mid-last week I did pile the kids in the car and we headed into Leavenworth […]

Hannah is 22 Months!

Our Hannie girl is 22-months old and is growing up right before our eyes in the mountains. This is the third month-by-month update I’ve done for her while we’ve been social distancing at The Lodge. She truly is going to be a different kid whenever it is we move back home to Seattle! I wonder […]

Lodge Life: Quarantine Week 11

We’re in our eleventh week here at The Lodge. Certainly by now we’ve adjusted to this strange “normal” we’ve all found ourselves in. We haven’t done any recent outings, aside from a drive to the gas station to fill up the gas can for the lawn mower. Last week was pretty mellow and we enjoyed […]
