Moving Home

We’ve been out at The Lodge now for about five months now. It’s looking like Ben’s school is going to be 100% in-person come September. That means we’re preparing to move back home to our primary residence in Seattle. Our time out here has provided memories we know will last a lifetime for Alex and […]

Lodge Life: Week 22

This last week we were feeling all the feels over here. It was a really tough week in our house. Alex had his last week at his job and is beginning his new position {same job different team} today, so he was busy making that transition last week. Later this week we’re expecting Alex’s parents […]

Lodge Life: Week 21

We had an extra special week celebrating Hannah’s 2nd birthday and enjoying a few bonus days with Alex, as he took off some time from work. Our week started out with a busy Monday – I took the kids to the beach that morning, then we made a post-nap trip into town to a blueberry […]

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: 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Lodge Life: Quarantine Week 10

It’s been another exciting week over here in quarantine. We started planting our vegetable garden, Alex got a lawn tractor, we went to the BEACH {!!!!!} and we had a wonderful weekend celebrating Mother’s Day. Early last week we entered into “phase one” of our state’s re-opening. Mostly it opened up some outdoor recreation opportunities […]
