Silver Lake Hike
One saturday afternoon in July we headed up the Canyon for a family hike. We chose a trail we'd never hiked before and holy cow, it's for sure a new favorite! We saw a moose and the most beautiful wild flowers I've seen in high country.
Not only was there a lake at the top, but a cave the kids could venture into- next time we're bringing head lamps for sure!
My favorite thing to do in the summer, or anytime really, is gather the family and head up into the hills for a hike. It makes me a little sad because the older the kids gets and the busier life becomes it's harder and harder to make it happen. I'm so grateful for this specific day. I'ts one of my favorite memories from this summer.
Hall Reunion, Ensign Ranch
We kicked off the Hall Reunion this summer at Ensign Ranch up in Washington. The theme was Over-Hall meaning..."overall" the Lords way is best, "overall" it's more fun with family and we had a breif overhaul of our previous 6 reunions. Opening night mom and dad came out wearing "overalls" and it was a sight and moment I will remember forever!
Aside from simply being together the cousins favorite thing to do at the ranch was go down the GIANT slip and slid, and ride the hoses....
Hiking near Snoqualmie summit. So beautiful.
These are lousy pictures, but the only ones I have of our family meetings and talent show, loved every minute!
That's a pathetic photo display of the first two days of the reunion. I wish so much that I had more pictures, and yet I'm grateful to have put down my phone(let's be honest it's the only way I take pictures anymore) and simply enjoyed myself.
