Where have I been???

I am so excited because tonight I will be able to sleep, it is finally cool. I haven't been on-line for over a week because I have been so exhausted from the heat and lack of sleep that moving from the couch was too big of an ordeal :) Not quite that bad but it was exhausting, we have experienced the hottest days ever in this part of the world. For many I am sure it's been hotter but for us that live without air conditioners it has been yucky, the hottest day reached 97 degrees but with the humidity it actually felt like 111 degrees, normally our high is around 77. Anyway long story longer the heat and lack of sleep have kept me away.

We took a weekend away as a family also, it was a long weekend (B.C. Day) so we decided to run away to the Seattle area. We stayed in Bothell WA and took the ferry over to the Olympic National Park and to Sequim. We experienced a game farm where the animals actually stick their heads in and you feed them. This picture below is of Brendan, his face is just priceless.

Trevor had a blast with this deer, it wouldn't leave him alone, I actually started to drive away and the deer ran after the car. Then Trev was trying to feed another deer and this one wanted nothing to do with that, put his head in and licked Trevs face, it was too funny!

They actually had bears there as well, they were so cute

After the game farm we took a drive to Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic National Park. I have a stupid irrational fear of heights and didn't realize just how high up this was. It was like 17 miles around a mountain to the top, I was freakin!, and Trevor continuously making comments about if we fell off we would die wasn't helping, he had no idea but he was freaking me out :)

Here are some of the pics from Hurricane Ridge, if you are ever in the area I recommend checking it out, absolutely beautiful!

It was a wonderful weekend for sure, a little bit of everything, ferries, parks, attractions, swimming, and shopping, who could ask for anything more?

I also did get some scrapping done, actually put together this card. I haven't uploaded it to Etsy yet, probably will tomorrow and also hope to get more done projects completed tomorrow as well.

Also my neice just announced her engagement so I will be putting together an Etsy wedding feature before the end of the week. My computer days are back, yahoo!! I just hope the cool weather continues, just be sure to know that I will be complaining it's too cold come this winter, lol.

Wow what fabulous photos, and you are so lucky, the weather in the UK has been appalling this summer, all we seem to have had is rain. Last week when my grandsons were here, we had two days with light showers and the rest of the week it was heavy and a job to go anywhere. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxx

Oh I feel for you, the rain will be coming soon I'm sure, from October on til March all it does is rain. I could however go for some rain as my grass has that lovely yellow hue right now :)
