Beach with the Burtons

Tawnya and I have been wanting to go to Ruby Beach together for a couple years now.  We thought about making it a big Olympic National Park camping trip but summer break goes by too fast.   So we zipped over for a quick day trip and had a great time.  The kids loved all the drift wood and playing in the waves, and we even saw a family of Whales swimming in the shallows.

Mt Rainier

The end of July we camped at White River camp ground up at Mt Rainier with Leah's family, it was really fun and really beautiful!  Leah and Joe went early Thursday and got us both a camp site then they did a family hike up to the glacier.  We got there Thursday evening and the kids had fun playing around the camp ground and by the river.  Friday we hit the trail early and did about an 8 mile loop up the Summerland trail (the guys went further), it was so amazing and the flowers were as good as it gets.  Saturday we went up to Sunrise did a 3 mile loop to Frozen Lake and Shadow Lake (the guys went to Boroughs Peak), we were relieved to have a shorter hike the second day.  But all the kids were great little hikers and enjoyed playing together.  It was so nice to have warm weather and a beautiful blue sky so the mountain popped.
