I always get so excited when summer approaches! Just the thought of the warm, long days gets me giddy! I have to say that summer is by far my favorite season, and living in the NW we are so lucky to have fabulous summers. It rarely gets unbearably hot and there are so many great places to explore here in the summer. I hope that this summer we can get out and do some exploring. I'd love to do some hiking; it would be nice to hike around Mt. Rainier which is actually fairly close to Eric's family cabin. I'm sure we'll take several weekend trips out to Eatonville for some relaxing. And we have a trip to Priest Lake planned for August which I'm very excited about. It's one of my favorite vacation spots and I'm so excited that Emma will be able to get in the water with us this year. I know she will absolutely love it! We will also be traveling down to Dundee, Oregon this year for some more wine tasting and a stay at the Nut House. We went to Argyle last year and stayed for the weekend. We did tasting at Erath, Sokol Blosser...and a few others that I now can't remember! We had a really great time and I hope we can make a trip down there a yearly tradition.
