Hiking Staircase

I have said this before. Nature does something to me. It also does something to them. They Bond.  They also fight in the back seat and yes even on the hike so don't think when we load up in the car the chorus lets out its hallelujahs. 
Yet, I can not fathom why I would be home folding laundry when the great outdoors is calling.   I can do it tomorrow. Today we hike.
We hiked Staircase. It in the Olympics. You should go. 
Our hike was 4 miles roundtrip , it was not steep, however we did need to take some "breathing" breaks.  We did the staircase Rapids. It was breathtaking. 

Family Gatherings.

So we are trying something new with our family here in the PNW. The Teabos (all the Teabos) and the Andersons are gathering once a month. We are two down.  Recently this was at my sister *in law* but I think I can drop the in law now. Right? Its been like 16 years. So here are a few photos from that.  
                 Cousins.....sweetest things.

  We want our kids to have memories together , we want them to remember that once they were friends. Hopefully if we instill in them the needs to keep communication open with extended family then the better chance that they will feel the need also.
