We woke up today to the sound of rain (again...) and got dressed in our raincoats and waterproof boots since it was a field trip day at Millie's pre-school. Off we went at 10 am to the Cedar River Watershed in North Bend for a talk and then a hike outside. As you can see it was a pretty nasty, dark, rainy day.
Having fun (and staying dry) inside the watershed center.
Some pretty sounding water drums.
Off on our hike. Needless to say, it was fun to be outside(that is my being positive statement...!) but it was also really nice to get back home, dry off and light our woodstove and settle inside for the rest of the day. Unfortunately we are also monitoring the flood situation once again for possible floods from the Snoqualmie River today. Can you tell we are very anxious and excited for sunnier and drier weather around here!?

We got to spend 10 beautiful, near perfect days in Oahu, Hawaii earlier this month. We did not really leave the beach this time. Here is Millie planning a sand castle city in Kailua Beach.
Playing catch in the surf!
Mike and Millie are posing at our beach in Kaneohe Bay. We stayed in a wonderful beach cottage there and this is where we got to go swimming and snorkeling everyday!
Here is our cottage. Millie liked to feed the roosters that wandered around in the morning. She would drop them little bits of bread from the balcony.
Here is the amazing view from our deck (lanai)!
Lots of fun building castles.
The view from the beach of our cottage in the background. I miss this so much! Now we are back in Washington state with temps in the 40's and lots of rain. We had so much fun and relaxation on this holiday!
