{Mt. Rainier}

We've made it a tradition to go to Mt. Rainier in mid- August the last few years.  There is just no place like it at this special time when the wild flowers are in peak bloom.  We invited our good friends, the Carver family, to join us on a pretty strenuous 5 mile hike.  The weather held out, the flowers were gorgeous, we got some sneak peeks of the mountain (but it was mostly behind clouds), and the temperature was perfect!

Miles was a trooper for about 4.5 out of 5 miles!  Good little hiker that 3 year old!!

Playing on the glaciers is always fun!

I say this every year, but the pictures don't even do it justice.  If you ever get the chance to visit Seattle in mid-August, Mt. Rainier (we always go to the Paradise park entrance), it's a must-see!

Rochelle, I found the picture of your daughter in her beautiful baptism dress on pinterest and my mom is using the same pattern to make a baptism dress for my daughter. You listed the pattern name, but not the kind of fabric you used. Is there any chance you remember what it was? I'd be forever grateful if you could email me that info!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
