Dear, my sister Vera and I drove to Snoqualmie Falls on Saturday January 28th. The falls weren’t at their fullest on this trip.
On this day we decided to hike down to the bottom of the falls. Our first time to do this.
It was nice to have a different view.
The river was fast and furious and frothy!
After our hike down the trail and the harder hike up again we decided a nice cold brew and good meal were the next thing to enjoy.
Linking up with ABC Wednesday, F is for Snoqualmie Falls. Thank you Mrs. Nesbitt, Roger and the friendly ABC team.
Flashing back to Sunday evening and our early Valentine’s day celebration with our kids Josh and Laura. I’ll share more tomorrow. Happy Valentine’s Day ABCers!
Good Friday morning to y’all. Just a quick post while my camera battery is charging so I can upload the photos from our Thanksgiving gathering yesterday. This past Wednesday we traveled east to Snoqualmie Falls with my brother and sister-in-law and even though it was clear and sunny in the lowlands when we got to the Falls it was misty, moisty and foggy. It’s still an amazing site.
Today we might take a little drive to see some another site or two…no shopping for us!
Below are a couple shots of Snoqualmie Falls in March of 2014 when our daughter Katie and I visited.
I’m joining Cheryl at Thinking About Home in Gathering the Moments.
At the end of each month she offers a link up for anyone to add their post on gathering the moments of the month. How amazing it is to look back and see all the events that happened in 31 days. March is my birthday month which added a lot to the moments…
March brought flowers once again in the yard.
The opening of the MLS Soccer season and a 90th birthday celebration on the 8th of March. On March 11th Katie and I celebrated her and Andrew’s 3rd wedding anniversary. Andrew is serving our country in Afghanistan. Hopefully this will be the last anniversary for many years that they spend half a world apart.
March brought some traveling adventures, too. Katie and I visited Snoqualmie Falls and then Dear, Katie and I traveled to Eastern Washington on my birthday (March 14th) to spend the weekend with our middle son.
It’s fun to visit Dan’s country world. We had a nice meal out to celebrate my birthday. This would be one of three different celebrations I was treated to.
March brought the Mennonite Girls Can Cook class on preparing Paska and an Easter meal at Lepp Farm Market in Abbotsford, B.C. Katie and I traveled across the border to be part of this event. It was nice to start thinking about Easter.
Lots of good food was consumed in March!
Last night we were able to enjoy my third birthday celebration with Josh and Laura. We caught up on our lives over a great meal at Wild Ginger in Bellevue, Washington. I’ll share more about our time later and the meaningful gifts they gave me.
It’s time for the sun to set on March.
What highlights did March bring your way?

Tuesday was such a beautiful day that Katie and I decided to take the drive to Snoqualmie Falls. Although it was dry with clear blue skies and a few fluffy clouds we still got rained on by the falls themselves. The river was running so full and strong that the spray off the falls fell like rain anywhere close.
On Tuesday evening Katie and I went out together to celebrate her and Andrew’s anniversary. Dear is in Florida until tonight so it was just the girls. We chose a waterfront restaurant because the weather was so great. I’ll share the photos from our dinner on another day.
Today was another glorious day and I even had to turn my air conditioning on in the car. I am looking forward to Dear coming home tonight. How’s the weather where you are? I hope it hasn’t turned nasty for you again…

Snoqualmie Falls December of 2009
It was cold enough that the mist from the falls froze causing this icy spectacular sight.
***Oops I forgot to make 3 suggestions for future Photo Challenges. This isn’t easy. How about a color challenge. Or maybe “strangers unaware”. Have we done wheels, or barns, or statues, or neon signs, or signs in general? Now I’m getting carried away…
Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.
When I was at Snoqualmie Falls last week I was reminded of Narnia in The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.
The children stared at each other.”
“I don’t know that I’m going to like this place after all,” said Susan.
“Who is the Queen, Lu?” said Peter. “Do you know anything about her?”
“She isn’t a real queen at all,” answered Lucy; “she’s a horrible witch, the White Witch. Everyone – all the wood people- hate her. She has made an enchantment over the whole country so that it is always winter here and never Christmas.”
No worries though the White Witch hasn’t enchanted all of Western Washington yet and we will have Christmas!

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.
