Fun times!

I have to share a few fun things I’ve done this last month.

First of all my sister and I had the amazing opportunity to stay at a friends cabin in Winthrop.


If you’ve never been to Winthrop you really need to check it out.  Take a drive over the North Cascades Scenic Highway to the Methow Valley and into the Old West town of Winthrop.  There’s usually lots of things going on in the area, including mountain biking, camping, horseback riding, etc. etc. etc.  In March there’s the Balloon Festival, Labor Day Weekend is the Methow Rodeo, In the winter there’s cross country skiing and snowmobiling.  Or if you just want to hang out in town, there are tons of restaurants, the Rhythm and Blues festival in July, the list goes on and on.



We chose to spend most of our time at the cabin enjoying the deck, the peaceful quietness, and the many deer who came to visit us.


My next fun week-end was having a great time at our Annual Poker Party at one of my friends house on beautiful Lake Chelan.

We spent the week-end laughing, enjoying the beautiful scenery, acting silly like only the best of friends can, and oh yeah, playing poker!

It’s definitely been a fun month!

Mothers Day

Brody & Calla

Brody & Calla

What a great week I’ve had pet sitting in Snohomish this past week.¬† I absolutely adore the two pups that I’ve been watching.¬† Brody is such a gentleman who loves to snuggle and Calla has the biggest personality all wrapped up in a tiny 8 lb. body!¬† It’s so much fun watching her play with her squeaky toys and when I open the door for her and Brody to go outside, she shoots out like a rocket, barking and chasing away any rabbits, squirrels or birds that dare come into the yard.


Speaking of the yard, what a beautiful time of year it is with all the trees and bushes in bloom!

My daughter Heather lives fairly close by so on Saturday we decided to meet at the Country Village just down the road in Bothell.  What a cool place!  It was such a beautiful, sunny day!  A perfect day for LJ to get to run around and play, and a time for Heather and I to catch up.

He had so much fun playing on all the playground toys including a Pirate’s Ship, swings, merry-go-round, etc.¬† He also got to watch the ducks and chickens that were walking around.¬† There’s a cute pond and stream going along the back and there’s even a little train to take a ride on.

After taking a break at The Village Bean, where there was another little activity area for LJ to spend some energy, LJ and Heather took a ride on the train and then poured into the car and went home for a good nap :-).

On Sunday, Heather invited me out to lunch.  She had a bloody mary waiting for me when I arrived!  Oh how she knows her mamma!


We had a really¬†nice visit and some snacks!¬† I was so glad I got to spend Mothers Day with my daughter.¬† I haven’t been¬†close enough for several years to do that.¬† It was especially nice because Heather’s expecting her second child so it was a special day for her too!¬†¬†My son lives in Wenatchee so I wasn’t able to see him but I did hear from him so it completed my day!

Thanks Heather for creating the collages for me!
