We managed to go on vacation despite my surgery and it's horrid recovery. Baby is still so young and such a handful that we decided to stay in a campground and rent out an RV. It is much easier than tent camping. Mt Raineer was feeling shy this week, hiding behind the clouds, so we didn't get any good pictures.
We visited Paradise, but there was so much snow I was afraid of falling and hurting my belly. So, we hiked at the base of the mountain instead where there was no snow.
It is always so special to see these. I can't remember what they are, but I think they are pretty rare.
Really old tree! Brother loved it, but is too young to really understand how to figure the age by the rings. There is plenty of time! He enjoys it's size.
Trip, Trip, Trap. Trip, Trip, Trap.
Go the gnomes along the track
Through Forest deep they make their way
To find their Daddy as soon as they may.
Baby really enjoyed running on the trail. Sometimes I could hear him saying "trip, trip, trap" as he was going along. Only 2 years and 1 month, but already circle songs are sinking in. I changed the words for him a little bit while we were in the woods.
There were a lot of these types of trees whose trunks twist around as they grow.
Brother is being the tree.
Eventually Brother sunk into play while hiking. I don't know what his game was, but he would run ahead and talk to his imaginary friends, they would act something out and then he would run forward again. Its very exciting to see him get lost in his imaginary world!
We also saw a buck while we were hiking. We see Mama deer and baby up in Bellingham at every visit, but we have never seen a buck before.
