The Weekend: Suncadia

This weekend, we took our first mini-vacation as a family. We headed across the mountains to Suncadia, in Cle Elum. The color was just beginning to turn, and it was our first fall adventure.

Jonathan spent a good deal of time in CLEs for the Tacoma Pierce County Bar Thomas and I had some time in the outdoors, in the pool, and catching up on sleep. The Arends were there as well - so Thomas had the chance to play with Max and Michael, and Susan and I caught up in the spa. It was so good to have a little downtime together! Jonathan and Mark both walked away with a bottle of wine after they finished 18 holes and had a great time catching up a bit. Friday night, Gordon Thomas Honeywell, Jonathan's old firm, hosted a social/cocktail hour a few suites down from ours, so it was great for him to see some old faces.

What I loved about this weekend was that everyone's families were there with them. There was a huge "Northern Exposure" themed BBQ dinner last night (my Grandma, a Northern Exposure junkie, would have been in heaven) and there were kids everywhere. Attorneys, spouses, and lots and lots of kids. There were a number of peeps in Northern Exposure-style we got the Wee Ski involved. He wore his new horsey costume that he received from his Grandma. He was the cutest wee one outfitted up!

A few shots from the weekend...

Friday night after was cold, so we bundled together!

It's game day! I think we'll need a rally cap for next weekend.

We stopped for lunch with the Arends at Village Pizza...only to find it still closed. We grabbed a bite at the Roslyn Cafe before getting back on the road again.

And now we're unpacking. Good to go, great to be home. Welcome, fall!
