Mother's Day and Marymere Falls

Mother's Day has been good to me. Greg woke up with Kaelin this morning and let me sleep in (I still was awake at 7:00 like normal, but just staying in bed was really nice). I came out to the living room, and Greg was making pancakes (for the first time in his life). They actually turned out really good for a first timer, a little crispy, but yummy still. To top off a great breakfast, I dint' have to lift a finger for the whole day. Greg cleaned the kitchen, switched out the laundry, vacuumed the floors and put the laundry away (my least favorite job of all). Then, all three of us jumped around the living room listening to oldies and having fun.

We spent some time out with nature today too. We drove out past Lake Crescent, to a popular hiking spot called Marymere Falls. We weren't the only ones with this idea, but the weather was nice and who could ask for better company! We came across a lot of big trees (that Kaelin just had to be photo'ed in front of) and even a couple of deer.

We were all in awe of the size of these trees!

We got a couple of good family shots too...

Kaelin was our little adventurer.
She was rock climbing, blazing the trail on her own, and being an explorer.

Here are some more of the pictures that we took...

To put a perfect end to our outing,
there were Forget-Me-Not's everywhere.

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers out there. I know that it is a hard job, but it is the best job in the world!


  1. Your mother's day sounds like the perfect day for sure.

  2. What a wonderful Mother's Day!! The hiking scenery is really beautiful. If you want really big trees you should see the Redwoods in California. When I was in that forest I felt like an ant!!
