Exploring the Pacific Northwest one trail at a time!

So I realized that I had pretty photos from a hike I did with my kiddos, but I didn't seem to blog them!  What the heck!?
These are from a while back, but I really do love Whatcom Falls Park as a place to hike around.
 As a teen I enjoyed jumping from the falls and swimming there too. This hike was prior to a 5k I was going to run there.  My mom wanted to check out the trail.  So we did.  Kids and all.
 And the fun part was after the kids played at the playground.  This route started at Lake Whatcom.
 I've taken a break from my trails, but I think it's time to get back out there!

The hundred acre wood

I got to visit the hundred acre wood this weekend!  Okay, not the real one.  But as Sam and I walked through the woods we were at she said," Mom, they have their very own hundred acre wood!"  Since then every time I mention the 100 acre she has to correct me and say it was 110.  Silly girl.  Where is this magical 100 acre wood?  Well, my girls were invited to a friends birthday. 
The friend lives on a beautiful 110 acre farm in concrete.  It was love starting with the drive.  It felt like we had somehow been put down into Narnia.  I'm a sucker for a good drive.  Then we arrived.  It wasn't what I expected.  110 acre farm in my mind meant wide open space, vast fields,  and live stock.  Instead it was a wonderful place were people made you feel welcome, cuteness was everywhere,
 and kids got to swim in a creek(that I kept calling a river).
The girls and I can't wait to go back and have more wonderful adventures in the hundred acre wood!

We have been rotating the kids through different sports.  Each one getting their turn to try something out and see what they think.  The twins and Kelly have both tried basketball.  This time little Isaiah is trying T-ball.  Oh. My. Gosh!  It is the cutest thing ever!!  The down side is it is outside.  Rain or shine.  Oh well, we will survive.

Hello Elijah!

I recently got the privilege of meeting and taking photos of baby Elijah.  I was reminded what a hard job we as mothers have.  The sleepless nights, the worry of the unknown, the firsts, and the pressure we put on ourselves.  I was also reminded of the joy a new little one brings.  All the love we feel for them.
Yep, every time I go and take pictures for someone I always feel something different.  Anyways, enough of my rambles.  Here he is.  Sweet baby Elijah.
