As I have said before and will say again, I have the best friends a girl could ask for.
It was a wonderful day. I can't wait for next year.
But so is Tyler. Our children will be very talented. Rosie, Me and Katie soaking up the sunshine. Being outside in the cold sunshine is incredibly refreshing. I felt like a new woman after a few hours outside.
Also, note the little plume of smoke behind me. St. Helen still smokes, and it is awesome how well you can see it on a cold day. One of the most beautiful places on earth. I am sure of it.
After we drove around we said goodbye to our friends and they went home to hang at the cabin and be warm. We however have been wanting to try out a new potential hobby. Snowshoeing. We rented some snowshoes and bought an old used pair off CraigsList and hit the trail, so to speak. We had no idea what we were up against as neither of us had ever tried before. But we fell instantly in love. And how could we not on a day like this? We started out with an easy one miler. We were acting like little kids. We were so excited and having s much fun and so happy to be outside hiking again. It has been a long indoor winter. We are so happy to have found a way to keep hiking all winter long. I just don't know why it has taken so long for us to try out snowshoeing.
