Weekend update

Thanks all for the comments and tips about our upcoming trip!  I am accepting all travel tips for Germany, Austria and Switzerland!

I have so much to catch up on this summer - weddings, weekends and everything in between!  So I'll start with this upcoming weekend.  On Saturday Nick and I hit the hills around Seattle and went hiking to Rattlesnake Ledge, about 50 minutes outside of Seattle.  The hike was about 2.5 hours in total, including a little lunch break at the top.

Later that evening we went to West Seattle for a birthday party for our friend Sam and his sister, held at their aunt and uncle's house.  Check out the amazing views we enjoyed from the host's house.

Sunday was a relaxing day with my friend Courtney - we walked around the golf course and then laid out at the country club pool all afternoon.  Courtney is a medical school resident so she posted this picture on facebook with the caption: "A little education at the pool! Guess which one is carol's :)"  Her version of pool reading is American Medical News, mine is US Weekly!

Isn't Rattlesnake Ledge awesome?! One of my fave local hikes - easy and great reward at the end!

And I think your poolside reading choice is MUCH more entertaining :)
