Wallace Falls

This weekend was SO much fun. Need I repeat how much I LOVE the Pacific NORTHWEST! Friday night we went to a ward picnic at the beautiful Farrel McWhirter Park. Then we checked out early with our friends the Moulton's to go to Beaver Lake. It was a blast jumping on the floating trampoline, riding a bike off the dock, and discovering a secret passage to another lake! I have never lived near so much warm water! We love it. After a small little bonfire with roasted marshmellows, we left. Saturday morning we got up and set out for Wallace Falls State Park. Here are our pics:

what fun! I never thought of the NW as some place to visit, but you make it sound really exciting. I am glad you are liking it. Will it be hard to come back to Provo? by-the-way we aren't leaving until Sept 1st so maybe we can get together when you come back and catch up before I leave: )

Hey Carissa! What the heck you live up here in Washington. What city do you live in. I live in Monroe if you know where that is. Are you just living here for the summer? Maybe I should read some more of your blog and find out.

I haven't read that yet. My husband is just getting me into all of this...he's reading Glen Beck's Common Sense right now and loves it. I'll have to check into the John Adams book.
