A ways into Whitney's visit, we decided to take some time and head to the mountains. We opted for simple since my ankle is still on the mend and other things that kept us from doing all the great things....so... we opted out of rock climbing, bungee jumping, paragliding, tubing....you know all the great things. We had a lovely picnic in Evergreen and the lake was gorgeous! If we had time I would have rented a boat and hung out there all day. :D
Though Whitney had been here 6 days by this point, we finally decided to finally get some pictures...so we started by taking some self portraits of us. :D We didn't have the famous photographer friends with us so we got creative and took our own pictures.
Couldn't resist the mountain view! Just a piece of God's creation.
To top it off....we enjoyed some yummy icecream at Basin Robins just down the road from the Lake.
A glimpse of the splurge :D
Later on that night we went to Casa Bonita with my family...not for the food but only for the entertainment! I had to let Whitney experience Black Bart's Cave which freaked me out to tears when I was a little girl. Now we just laugh at it....and the Monkey!!! My oh my are their memories of that monkey!....he was scary too!! I just loved the divers...they always have been the cherry on top of the experience.
Cheering ourselves up before braving the food.
Ok....I guess we can be somewhat satisfied...at least for the moment :D
Life just can't be life without having fun! :D:D
If you didn't know where this was...you'd think we were in some other country....well that's a romantic thought indeed!
What a blessing it was to have you here Whitney! Your friendship means a great deal to me! I love you and will always love you as though you were a sister....in fact in my heart you are one! Many blessings to you sweet friend! I love you!
