Today my in laws stopped by for an impromptu visit and asked if I’d like to join them to check out the Tired Dog Ranch as a possible camping option this coming summer. Just under 40 miles from my home in West Fir, this was a fun adventure! My sister in law does a horse/dog camping event every summer and our thought is that this place might work for that. It has a yurt, cottage, cabin, and lots of space for camping.
The woman who lives here said they’ve had several weddings here as well.
The colorful building here is the cottage, next to the house.
This building here is the cabin and that road leads to one large grassy area with a large space for a bonfire and camping and space for horses.
I realized this last fall that I had not taken a vacation since September 2014. Dreaming of my cousin Riis I woke up realizing I’d best go visit that girl and her family before she’s off to professional dance school or college. And then I designed the trip right before my 37th birthday. Got to spend half of a day in Seattle soaking up Pikes Place and while it was cold the sun was shining.
Road the largest ferries I’ve ever been on 4 times, twice in vehicles which was a blast. I also got to watch my cousin compete in the Youth America Grand Prix. She was awesome! Unfortunately they would not let us take pictures of their performances however it was a treat to see her live. A gorgeous ride back to their home in Poulsbo yesterday made for some great photography.
Had a great trip north to visit some of the cousins and my Aunt Gayle yesterday and today. Had the pleasure of getting totally drenched in rainy Oregon with Wonder Woman and Word Girl last night trick or treating. It was good to be with family and enjoy the dress up/candy excitement of the little ones. These two still seem to be contemplating the fact that I am the same age as their father (still asking, are you a kid or an adolescent?). I am happy to know they sense my young heart.
