Memorial weekend recap

Summer has finally come to Seattle and we welcomed it this weekend!

On Friday after work Nick and I headed over to my parents cabin for the weekend. We did hiking, BBQing and lots of reading and relaxing in the sun. It was so nice to get out of busy Seattle/Portland (for Nick) and relax with the fam and Nick.

We came back Sunday after dinner and spend Monday outside as well, did a run around Greenlake and relaxing outside.

Hope it was a great weekend for everyone as well! Four day week and Nick will be in Seattle!

our cabin community is a safe place for them so they are not scared of people

Wow, stunning pictures! It sounds like an absolutely perfect weekend. I would love to see Mt. Ranier someday. I'm envious you are able to get that close to elk. They have been re-introduced in my home state of Tennessee (in Big South Fork National Recreation area), but they are elusive and haven't really multiplied yet. And you are too cute! Thanks for visiting my blog!
