We really enjoyed our first summer as parents and because of the beautiful weather we were able to really soak up every last minute outside with our little girl. We went on a couple little vacations this year and even took Leighton on her first camping trip. She loves being outdoors just as much as we do, so we are nurturing that love. We got her a hiking pack and she loves being up high on our shoulders where she can see everything. She has gone fishing with us a few times now and we are excited for the day she will get to hold her own little fishing pole. Along the way I took way too many pictures because I’m the mother of a one year old and that’s what we do!

I love being outside, especially hiking. I’ve been blessed to hike some amazing places over the years. I’ve had the opportunity to do a great deal of hiking up in Alaska and Upstate New York in the Adirondacks which are a couple of my favorite locations. I’m happy to say that after being here in Washington for 13 plus years finally this summer we made it up to Hurricane Ridge in the Olympics. A trip that was well worth it…. broad sweeping vistas, deer were plentiful, wildflowers were out in force, and there was even little bit of snow left over to add to it all. Of course the best part is doing it with family and friends. I look forward to adding more amazing spots in the years to come.

I grew up in Olympia on Bud inlet. My summers were spent swimming and water skiing. This is a picture of me with two of my grandchildren, Kinsley and Jaycee, on Labor day swimming in Bud Inlet. It has been fun passing on my love of the water with them.

I love to explore different places, what my husband & I call – “Adventure time!” Some of our favorite places to visit are New Orleans, Savannah, and most of all Europe! Most recently we explored bites of Canada. Adding Victoria to my list.

I love the outdoors. If I’m doing anything outdoors I’m happy. I enjoy hiking with my family and friends. The beautiful Northwest is an amazing place to explore and hike. My girls and I were able to get some nice hikes conquered this summer.

This summer my family and I went to Oregon to witness the eclipse in totality. We didn’t plan this out in advance but we just happened to have arranged to have this week off of work already and had no plans. We found a church in Salem that allowed camping on their field. My husband and I and our two youngest girls, age 12 and 13, went for it.  We “slept” in our expedition, crammed and completely uncomfortable. The eclipse was truly amazing to see and be part of. Despite the lack of sleep and the 8 hour trip back home to Olympia, we all thought is was worth it and would do it again. It is a family adventure we will not soon forget!

This year I took an amazing trip to Southeast Asia with two of my girlfriends. We traveled to so many amazing places, learned about the fascinating culture, majestic mountains, delicious food and great beaches.

 

 

This is the White Temple in Chiang Rai, Thailand. Which was absolutely breathtaking.

I love being near any body of water. Weather I’m relaxing, kayaking, fishing, or hiking near it I’m happy. I’ve been fortunate this summer and have had many opportunities.

Russell Road Trip 2017

My family and I took a two week road trip this summer with our truck and camper and had a blast! We had to be flexible right of the bat when our first 3 day stop, Crater Lake, was engulfed in smoke from multiple nearby fires. We diverted to the Mt. Shasta wilderness and enjoyed that. Next, we headed south to Kirkwood Mountain, CA were we hiked, biked and swam to our hearts content. We spent our weekend visiting college friends in Mill Valley, CA, near San Francisco. Our children got on so well with theirs (and Katie especially enjoyed the comforts of home), it was hard to leave. From there, we traveled north and spent 5 days exploring the majestic and awe-inspiring Red Woods. We finished our trip at Bullard’s Beach State Park in Southern Oregon for some sand and water play. This was a great family vacation and was a blessing to experience just before sending the kids off to school.  Peyton (9) is entering 3rd grade and Allison (6), will join him as a kindergartener.
