Last one!


We had a wonderful time with Brandon and Riley. They flew into Seattle and rented a car and got here Sunday afternoon. We had a North Carolina style BBQ ready for them when they arrived. After feasting on BBQ we all drove to Hurricane Ridge, Riley loves the snow as I do. We were shocked when we got to the top, the snow was blowing like a blizzard, they had closed the Visitor Center and we had to turn the car around and drive back down. What a bummer, we wanted them to be able to see all the beautiful views from the top of the Olympic National Park. It was still a beautiful drive to the top.

The next day we got up early for our drive to Forks, Washington to show Brandon and Riley all the awesome things to see from the Twilight Movie Series. We stopped at the Visitor Center first and took lots of pictures of Bella’s truck and more. We also picked up a copy of the self-driving tour to take. The city of Forks was chosen by the writer of the series because of all the rain in the story, it didn’t let us down. We had a lot of rain but we all pushed on. Our last stop was La Push to see the beach where the Twilight gang had a party. We all had fun and enjoyed the trip very much. I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story. Check back later for more from Washington.
