Thursday we met up with some friends at Remlinger Farms... such a special treat! We try to go once a year, typically in the fall season. This was our first time during the summer season and I must say that I think I liked it better as there were more rides, animals and ponies to enjoy. And -- less crowds!!! The sunshine was warm but it wasn't too bad as they had sprinklers throughout the park for folks to enjoy, our kiddos got soaked a few times (me too). We had a fantastic day as we opened and closed the park down making for some tired kiddos and a tired momma!

Last week we enjoyed a ten day camping trip out at Denny Creek in the Snoqualmie area. This was our first time at this campground. It was a lovely little campground, however you can hear the road noise from I-90 - a bit too much for us. The area is beautiful and offers so, so many opportunities for outdoor fun & hiking! We enjoyed several hikes throughout the week - Franklin Falls, Denny Creek Water Slides, Wagon Trail Hike, Lake Talapus & Lake Ollalie and then Bryan and the kids enjoyed the Iron Horse Snoqualmie Train Tunnel and hike. Over all about 18 miles of hiking happend this past week.... AWESOME!!!
As well we enjoyed wonderful company camping, a ton of play with friends, river play, forest service roads, general camping goodness like star gazing, great foods and campfire endings to the day. The weather was amazing all week long offering us nothing but pure sunshine, how lucky we were!
There are just TOO MANY photos to share, so I selected just a few to share of our trip... I had over 200 photos, and that is light for me! Enjoy!!!
