A Wonderful WA Weekend

Hi!  How was your weekend?  I hope it was as amazing as ours.

Moose's childhood friend brought his family up for a vacation and made contact. 
We hosted a little gathering on Friday evening--it was wonderful--kids running around, old friends reminiscing, and new friends being discovered....

Toward the end of the evening, plans were being made to get together the following day.
A trip to Mt. Rainier!!  Woot!

Moose's friend, A, his wife and child met us the following morning at our place.  We ventured from there up Hwy 410 to the side of Mt. Rainier known as Sunrise.  After our picnic lunch, A's wife picked the perfect hike:  Sunrise Nature Trail, a 1.5mi relatively flat trail that gives you a great view of the mountain and surrounding terrain.

Glimpse of what lies ahead

At Mt. R, many of the trees grow wonky due to low oxygen levels at such high altitude.
Moose thinks they look like Dr. Seuss trees. :)

The Adventurers

After our hike, we headed down into a little town Moose and i are currently in love with, had dinner, and we attended a little community production of Wizard of Oz.

All in all, it was a perfect day.
