To Olympia We Went

Alright, we're still in July... after my Mom's Night Out I had about 3 days at home and then Cory and I drove to Olympia to meet Brian. Along the way we met for dinner at our lovely friends' house, the Bakers.

I have known them since I was in middle school and they went to our church. Mama Smurf, aka, Judy, and her husband founded the camp I spent summers working at. After her husband died she married Dave, Papa Smurf. They are both just super special to me!

After dinner we explored their garden and had a few remaining raspberries and some snap peas for dessert! Nothing like veggies picked fresh off the vine!

They also have some lovely flowers so you know I was interested in them... I think this one may end up as a note card!

I found a spider friend that looked really cool...

Same flower, different angle.

Unfortunately I didn't have long to play since the sun was going down and the light was fading.

After that we headed to our hotel in our separate cars and the whole way there (about an hour) Cory asked me every 5 minutes, "where's Daddy?" I told him he was in the car in front of us, but I think he was a bit anxious since he hadn't seen him much for almost 2 weeks! It was good for us to go there and spend a couple days at least seeing him at night!

The hotel was right near the waterfront in Olympia so we took a nice walk the next night looking at all the boats.

Dinner was in a fun restaurant and when we realized we left Cory's sippy cup there I went running back to get it... I'm still kicking myself that I didn't take the camera because a) the sunset was gorgeous and b) the spot where I was standing by the bar in the restaurant had the coolest reflection of the bar wall in the window and then the sailboats around it where the light wasn't so bright. Who knows if it would have turned out, but I guess I'll never know...

Cory was awfully cute napping all by himself in a king size bed and then snuggling with Daddy!

Cory and I also spent one morning at the Olympia Children's Museum, but that deserves a post all it's own!
