Another Great Camping Trip...

I feel pretty lucky that we can drive just a short distance from our house and arrive at destinations such as these.  I'm LOVING this summer -- its packed full of fun adventures and camping.  The weather could not be more perfect this year and you can hear the collective sigh of relief from all Pacific Northwesterners that have been waiting for 4 years for our regular summer to return.  Everyone is exhausted because we're all moving at a manic pace -- just making the most of it while we can.

This weekend we headed northeast to Mt Baker/Snoqualmie National Forest and found ourselves camped right beside this river.  I don't think we could have scored a better spot (Thank you Kathleen and Jeff) to park ourselves for the weekend.  We were overlooking the river and had our own personal trail down to the river bed.  The girls had a great time playing and fun was had by all.

Our campsite... 

Roadtrip to a short hike...  I love all the trees. 

We were on an 'adventure'... not hike.  Gotta trick the littles.  They thought we were on a fairy hunt the whole time...

And everyone made it to the ice caves...  

Beautiful day in a beautiful area of the world...

Henry wasn't so interested... 

Super cool...

Sweet boy...
