Weekend Trip to Lake Chelan

Lake Chelan has been on our “to visit” list for several years and now that we’ve been, I can’t believe it took us this long to make it happen. At 55 miles long, Lake Chelan is the largest lake in Washington and is located in the middle of the state, about 3 hours east of …

Jackson Hole Ski Trip

To finish off our virtually non-existent ski season we took a long weekend trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming with my dad. Knowing that the snow conditions in the Tetons weren’t ideal, our spirits were still high and we were all looking forward to spring skiing, the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort culture, hot tubbing, eating the …

Mexico Trip Part II: Guadalajara

Before we begin, lets just get a few things out of the way first. Yes I actually am able to write blog posts. No I haven’t ever written one before this very moment. And of course: yes, I procrastinated writing this enough that Ali release part 3 before I even wrote part 2.¬†Shes way better …

Camping Trip in the Cascade Mountains

Last weekend was a highlight of our summer in Seattle. We spent the weekend camping in the central Cascades with our friends Carrie, Patrick, Mary and Ryan, and of course Jackson and Berkeley {Ryan and Mary’s dog}. The drive once you get out of the city is breathtaking. After passing through the town of Enumclaw …
