Yesterday...

What a fun birthday day! (and thank you so much for your lovely wishes! )

First we went on a picnic by the river, organised by the children...

A Value Village find from earlier that morning:
I love these kinds of pots!
The Skykomish River and a farm in the distance...
Picnic basket with freshly baked scones and Clotted Cream!
Iced tea...
Another lovely old barn...
Beautiful flower farms...
And after a little nap in the shadier parts of our backyard, we had dinner at my Dutch aunt and uncle's house in Edmonds. The views from their deck are always spectacular but yesterday's were of an Olympic level. (double pun intended since the mountains we were looking at are also called The Olympics...)
Holland- America line cruise ship...
A lonely sailor...
Glittering waters....
As we were eating Nasi Goreng (an Indonesian rice dish: Yum!) we saw this happening:



Wow, wow, wow!

When we finally came home we all laid down in the grass and looked at the Perseid's Meteor shower over our heads....

And now today we celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary!  {big smile}

  2. Congratulations and celebrations to your wedding day! Good work done, there! We're on like 34 years so it's like that 30 years war that took place in history somewhere (I totally bad when it comes to history).
    Your outing was a very, very beautiful one! What pictures!
    We also looked for the Meteor rain, and we saw it and I made my three wishes!
