Naturally, with weather like this we decided we'd better spend those two days outside. I think we ended up at about three different parks alone on Saturday. It was also a great opportunity - and the last chance before our trip to Australia - to visit a pumpkin patch, and on a whim we decided to go and check out Snoqualmie for a small day trip. It was mostly an excuse for a bit of a scenic drive and historical train ride for the girls, but took a turn for excitement when we realised we'd landed in Twin Peaks country. J and I were both fans back in the day, and visiting the diner which was used for many scenes has me itching to bust out Season One on Netflix.
I'm glad I got to experience a beautiful "fall" weekend here before our trip back home. It truly is different here - Sydney and L.A. are very much a case of leaves going from green to brown, and not a whole lot else in between. The Northwest is so much more colourful; I can't even begin to imagine the show that must happen in the Northeast.
We leave tomorrow and I still have to finish packing, so this is it for word part of this post. I'll leave you with a bunch of snaps from the weekend (I cracked out the DSLR again, which felt good), and I'll check back in once our crazy trip is over.
Plus a couple more from this week:
