My sweet peeps and I just returned from a few days on the Olympic Peninsula. It was restful in so many ways.... but with real life moments that made me feel like a nap was a good idea by the time we walked in the front door of home. I bet you get what I mean if you've ever been anywhere in a car with two kids for more than an hour, right? We made some awesome memories at a game farm where you get to feed wild animals from the comfort (and safety?) of your own vehicle. (I rolled my window up when we got to the huge bison and said, "nothankyou" to the experience at that point... a little too close for comfort- though they really seemed to like my husband.)
We tromped around a few beaches, had epic foosball tournaments, enjoyed the great outdoors, had a little fondue party on a rainy day, and had a few good laughs. My son photographed humming birds to his heart's content. We ended on a great note when we stumbled upon the cutest little town ever. A historic settlement, Port Gamble, abounding in history and fun finds, not to mention darling shops. I was in Sasha heaven. (We fed the kids milkshakes so they were also in heaven.) (Of course, we also had major meltdowns that derailed entire days, sickness that effected the energy level, and some hard challenges... but you know what I'm coming to realize? That's just real life and I'm choosing to focus on loving that we got to sneak away to a fairly inexpensive place and "camp.)
(I consider it camping when I have to pack my own food, wash my own dishes, make my own bed and there is no room service. I was just happy I wasn't in a tent. Ha!)
Okay so here is our vacation...
