What a week. It has been filled with all kinds of adventure. This picture is a nice highlight of our day. Having Scott's family in town we decided it would be nice to take a day and spend it on beautiful Whidbey Island. Starting with a ride across the ferry, driving up to Coupeville and eating a magnificent lunch at the Knead and Feed which we topped off with an amazing marioberry pie, we landed ourselves at Deception Pass. Those few who are daring decided to walk across the bridge....those of us far less daring decided to wait and pray for them and enjoy the view on solid ground. :)
When we gathered back together we made our way to a beautiful park on the water and hiked up to the top of a huge rock...where you see us gathered for a family photo at the top. The views from up here are quite incredible. A bit of all the beauty of Washington is summed up when looking around from here, mountains, water, inlets and trees. Breathtaking. The day finished off with a crockpot dinner (thank the Lord I had the inspiration for that before we left!), and a fun night spent all together. Whew, it has been quite a week, and the memories we made are so sweet!
