Well, here we go again.  That time of year when I yearn to get outside.  I have such a hard time getting through yet another Washington winter.  You would think after all these years that I would be numb to all this rain, damp and cold, but the truth is.....it is really hard.  It takes a toll on me, and I love to get outside any chance I get.

Had a great weekend here at the house.  Got two commissioned pieces done that I will share with you tomorrow.  Orion had his friend Logan over for a "stay the night"....what a blast they had. XBOX PARTY ALL NIGHT LONG!!!  I have never seen two boys eat so much in my life.  When I say eat, I mean EAT!!!!  I pride myself on eating organic healthy food here at the house, and I am ashamed at what I let them consume. Here is small fraction of what went down here at the house in the last 24 hours: Little Caesars Pizza washed down with Pepsi, followed by.....Klondike Bars for dessert!!!! The next day they ate stacks and stacks of pancakes smeared with butter, syrup, and BACON!!! (every thing is better with bacon!!!) Lunch was served out of the box by an arch nemesis named KRAFT......yep, you guessed it.....MAC AND CHEESE!!!!! GROSS!!!  After all this processed guilt I figured I better get the boys outside and exercising!  We headed for the lake and got our hiking on!   We tried to ignored the rain and trudged on......

The boys at the start of the hike........

Logan and I made it to the top of the huge rock!  Hey, how do you like that AWESOME Sock Monkey hat???? Cool, I know!!!!! :)

Proof that Dan and I actually did take the kids hiking and didn't just dump them off in the forest for an hour!!!!

Almost to the end of the lake!

Instead of "Boyz in da Hood"......I will call them "Boyz on da Rock!" " :)

After we got done with our 3 mile hike Dan and I treated them to yet another junk food.  What can I say, I am such a sucker!!!!  We headed to TOPPINGS, the new frozen yogurt place here in Anacortes!!!!  All in all, it was a FANTASTIC day!  We got outside, had a blast, and burned some calories!!!

Speaking of calories.....Dan and I have almost lost 10 pounds EACH since the holidays!!!! Oh yeah baby!!!!!  Take a good look now because we might shrink away!

Happy Sunday!
