---> Washington <--- part 2

 Day 3
We took the day a bit easy.  Went on a long hike around their property. Seriously. 5 acres.
Look at how beautiful everything is.
There are horses, goats, alpacas, emus, slugs, chickens, mini donkeys. Its a mini farm surrounding them.  We collected rocks, sticks and avoided lots of mud.

They have so much land it would go to waste without a few toys. They have this awesome go-kart that Ben put some major power on.  We whipped around the mud, hills, rocks.  I totally forgot pictures- grr-

After the go-kart fun we dug for worms--- collected 2 cups worth and headed to the lake down the street from their house to do some fishin.  No fish caught but we had fun getting the hooks caught in trees, bushes but avoided any human contact.  Donna and I played on the play ground when we got to bored watching the non-fishing.

There is no trip for Ryan without the great outdoors and Cabala's.
We had some fun wondering around this place for a while. Ryan found himself a new pair of boots.
Who wouldn't in the bargain cave!

Day 4
Chill. Chill. Chill
Mellow day. We were going to go to the zoo but the weather took a horrid turn and before we knew it the place was closed.  Ryan spent the morning on the floor playing with the girlies and I spent the morning at the table doing homework.  Let me just say, my 12 year old niece came over to "help" and ended up understanding my freaking college algebra more than me.  Are you freakin kidding me?  I closed the books and ended homework time right then and there.  
Later that day we ended up going to the Tacoma Mall.  I did what I do best and bought a few gifts for those girls before their mom or dad could say no.  For the past few days I have been trying to find the movie Tangled.  Everywhere we went they were all sold out.  But good old FYE had a few copies left so I scooped it up and we spent our night watching that and eating cotton candy.

(yes this is how we watched the movie.. notice Ryan.. also notice the reason for his smile. Its on the table next to him. He had a few of those to get him through Tangled.)

... and what would a girls night be without SHRINKY DINKS!

Looks like an awesome time. I'm so glad you're there and having fun.

LOL Had to giggle at Ryan squished on the couch with that big old grin on his face, then I noticed his friend on the table. LOL

Yumm! Cotton candy!

Big old hug to you, travel safe and have fun.
