Soaking up the Sun

These last few days of summer have been great! We have had a little more sun thankfully, but it is definitely fall with the leaves changing colors and windy days. We have had the opportunity to stay very busy and yet play outside too! We went blackberry, apple, and blue berry picking! The last was with our friend Grace who we have had the pleasure of spending tons of quality time with. And of course I baked a ton from all the good fruit.

We then took a day and went to Bainbridge Island where we stayed at a cute little B&B called Holly Lane Gardens. Thomas loved chasing the geese! Exploring downtown Bainbridge as well as downtown Poulsbo was a great time away from life too.

We also were able to go on a steam train also, which was a blast!

And then today we were able to go to the Cranberrian Fest in Ilwaco, WA with Grace (again!). A quaint little town with many cranberry treats to try. We even got to tour a wet bog being harvested. And with the fresh cranberries I can't wait to make treats!

And then we went to the coast where you can drive on the beach! Only twice in the four years we have been here.

And now no more fun... My final class starts tomorrow and it will be all studying for me! And then of course Thomas started his first day of work yesterday. I am sure with this first full week, Thomas will be exhausted, so prayers are appreciated!
