Over the weekend, we went to a friends cabin on the Foss River in Skykomish, Washington. Friday was beautiful and we had a wonderful time around the campfire with what looked like millions of stars above our heads. It is amazing how many stars you can see in the sky when you get away from city lights.
We woke up Saturday morning to a warm and sunny day, that took a wrong turn around 4:30PM into the worst rain storm I have seen in several months. Our friends cabin is pretty small so we had brought along our newly purchased tent, which made Friday night wonderful sleeping under the stars. Saturday night was a different story. The tent kept us all dry, but the noise from the rain was incredible. It sounded like 1000 cul-de-sac neighbor kids were blasting our tent with high powered squirt guns all night.
Most of the weekend the weather was just fine and the rain even let up enough on Saturday night to allow for a short campfire with everyone's favorite, s'mores. Our kids got in some fishing and by the end of the weekend my daughter, Emma was getting really good at casting her line into the river and realing it back in. Meanwhile my son, Tyler was just as happy turning a stick into some type of high tech weapon.
