8/11/15 (Tuesday) in Leavenworth, WA (Leavenworth Resort-TT)
Early this morning I saw this very quiet lizard that even let me get real close with my phone camera.
He was so complacent I was certain he’d still be on that log after I’d gotten Justin and the kids. Wouldn’t you know, I dragged the whole family to that log (Jamie even left sausages on the grill) to see him, but he’d left. Thankfully I did have that photo so they’d know I hadn’t made it up.
Off to our trail. It took a good half hour, including a gravel pot holed road, to get to the trailhead, where there was a fee. Oh well, it was worth it.
The kids had a great time until we were headed back down the trail and poor Gabe just was so tired he tripped over rocks and was generally miserable. I told John it felt like he was a Pigpen with misery floating all around him. Poor guy-it’s rough being 5. Lots of walking for a little guy on top of all the excitement of the last several days.
John and I spent the rest of the day resting (reading, napping). We then were treated to a fabulous grilled meal of chicken and veggies all marinated in a flavorful, hot sauce, set over rice. Yum! Naturally, while the kids watched their nightly movie we enjoyed more of “13”. Last night John and I each won a game. This time Justin and Jamie each one, so I think they’re feeling more positive about the game now.
