Glen wrestling his tree
We had this great plan to bring the campstove and some Campbells soup for lunch in the snow. We packed up bowls, utensils, crackers and even towels - just in case. As well as extra socks & shoes for everyone so our toes didn't freeze.
We drive up past Greenwater and continue on up into the snow. But there really wasn't much snow until we got up to our 'secret' spot. Snow everywhere!
We start to get lunch set up and realize......
we don't have matches.
or a lighter.
or anything that resembles a flame.
And with our high-tech Pathfinder, we don't have a cigarrette lighter, we have 'outlets'
Brother & sister - Cole & Anna
Finding our tree was straight out of National Lampoons Christmas Vacation...

He asked me to be his wife.
And I agreed.
First stop was the EMP in Seattle. What an amazing place! (yes, sad to say it was my first time there) To think that the Alternative movement came out of our city is just mind boggling. It was such a monumental shift in the music scene and all from this rainy city..... who knew?
Our favorite part was the interactive section. In this tiny, little room Cole got to bang his heart out on the drums! Anna & Shawn shared the guitar and I fell in love, love, LOVE with the BASS!!! (maybe it'll be a Christmas gift??) We left Cole & Shawn in the little room to rock out to their hearts content.
We also started a band, aptly named: The John Deers, and played our first gig. Recorded. On DVD. In stores soon. ;)

We headed up to Mt Rainier on Saturday to see if we could catch a glimpse of that majestic mountain of ours. No dice. We drove all the way up to Paradise, saw the Lodge under construction, hiked a trail to see a beautiful waterfall, but the mountain kept herself hidden the whole time.

Cole's favorite part? Seeing this cool, old Firetruck. And then watching it whir away with its sirens on.
