Last weekend, we took off Friday afternoon for a weekend of camping. Here's what it looked like when we arrived at camp.
We braved it and got out of the car anyway. We set up the tent in the rain (not so fun), cooked dinner in the rain (no so fun), had a picnic dinner sitting in the tent (a little fun), and went to bed early to the sound of rain tap-tap-tapping overhead. Sigh....Jack was so excited about camping, but he wasn't too sure about it after this first evening.
Luckily, Saturday turned beautiful. We camped at the spot where Troublesome creek comes into the Skykomish River. The water was very shallow, so not a great place for fishing, but lots of rocks to splash, and Aspen enjoyed running around. The water was icy, so we didn't go in much! The area is completely beautiful and scenic.
Now to this weekend. We started Friday evening with a quick trip to the park. Jack has been getting much braver climbing lately.
One of the highlights of the fair was the petting zoo, which had not only the usual pigs, goats, and sheep, but also wallabies, deer, llamas, ducks, and cows.
Of course, we had to walk through the quilting and sewing exhibits. They were amazingly talented as usual.
