We are officially in Washington, and the move is offically OVER. (If I can call it "over", when my garage is still occupied by packed boxes instead of cars. I think I totally can). There is a ton of updating to do, including a post on Lucy's birthday, but that can come later, mostly since I'm still a little bit in denial about my baby being two.

So, instead, here is a picture post from our first little adventure here in Washington. We took a trip around Hood River, Mt. Adams, and then in to Mt. Rainier National Park over the weekend. It was a lot of fun, and nice to get away from the unpacking that I have lost all motivation to continue. Lucy was a champ during all the hours in the car, and was adorably delighted with every little thing she saw on our hikes. Deer, elk, trees, pinecones, bumblebees, rocks, grass...all were equalling thrilling for our little nature girl.

And now for the countless pictures...mostly for family in Utah, who Lucy is missing in the worst way. (by the way, she really does own more than one set of clothes. Somehow these were all taken on the same day).

By the way, lets not discuss how grown up Lucy looks in these pictures. The little braids are killing me. It's like she's only moments away from her college applications or something. Sob.

Last family weekend in Utah

Sterling came home last weekend for a visit, and we had a great time hiking around the mountains (and feeling more than a little sad that we'll be leaving them so soon). The next time Sterling visits, we'll be packing up the moving truck, and Lucy and I will be going back to Washington with him. I'm glad that we had a couple of days to hang out in some of our favorite places before then.
