First off, my apolgies for the format, wordpress and I are on the outs again 🙂
Well, I’m really behind in blogging, aren’t I? We’ve had a whirlwind last few weeks of camping, celebrating Independence Day with some good friends and heading back down to Big D for a Big W!
For the 4th this year, our friends Liz & Myron invited us to a very special family cabin just barely north of the Washington border. We had such a great time, and Liz’s family is so very kind and are such gracious hosts!
We left on Wednesday after work in a crazy thunderstorm (hail and all). We drove all the way to far NE WA that night, but not without a few stops. We introduced M&L to Sonic Drive In (the only one in the state is in Spokane). We shared some cheesey tots and each got a cherry lime slush. I felt like I was back in high school!
We stayed the night in Liz’s childhood home and got up the next day to work remotely and then head on to Christina Lake. You have to boat around to the cabin as there are no roads to get there. I think there were two happy campers (below) on that boat ride!
Once we got back it was time to… have more food! The men gathered around the fire to grill some delicious steaks. The night was spent playing fun games around a fire.
Liz the wonder-skier managed to get out after some more rainshowers on day 2. I think Diesel (the fabulous dog that could knock small children over with his tail) wanted to go with her!
The crew (minus one happy reader) went for a hike to Treadmill Falls one afternoon. It was a great hike, the leader of the bunch made a typically 30 minute hike last about 15 minutes. Whew, I was exhausted!
I think Liz was about to fall, isn’t that great camera work on my part? (kidding, it was an easy log walk across a creek)
The falls and the crew that made the trek
Thank you so much to Liz, Myron & family for the great trip, we see why it is such a special place for your family…we are honored you shared it (and gave us the Love Shack to boot).
