The Beach & The Mountains...



What a fun weekend we have had! We went over and stayed with Grandpa at Anderson Island. While we were there we went beach combing ~ although it was pretty cold, we had fun! Holly enjoyed the childhood fun of tossing rocks in the water, collecting white rocks and we even found some sea shells. While we were there she also discovered the water fountain. Here she is trying to figure it out!




We also headed up to Mt. Rainier for a fun day in the snow. It was a beautiful drive, stunning views, elk & deer. Can't beat that! When we arrived at Paradise (Mt. Rainier) we got out to play... and let me just say, it was COLD and WINDY!!! I can't even imagine what the wind chill factor was - but, it was low! We had lunch and then headed out to play - for about 45 minutes. Much too cold for a 2 year old to enjoy. Holly didn't want to leave, but didn't want the wind in her face - that is a hard goal to meet. We decided to pack up and head home. We will head up again later in the season - we have a year pass - so, we will be sure to do it again. Mt. Rainier - what a beautiful sight!

Very cool! I've only been up the mountain once and it was pretty cloudy. I'd like to go back sometime when I can actually see the mountain.
