72 – Clear creek trail, Silverdale

W72 – Clear creek trail, Silverdale

Après un automne/hiver ultra pluvieux battant tout les records météorologique de la région, la pluie s’est arrêtée plus 24h. Le soleil brille, reboostant mon état d’esprit et réchauffant nos coeurs. Grosse promenade matinale au sentier de Clear creek à Silverdale. J’ai pu jouer avec Ulysse = > courrir, sauter faire les idiots… La grossesse et la naissance de Théo a réduit les moments privilégiés de tête à tête avec mon ainé et cela se voit dans nos intéractions, il me manque, on se manque. Théodore quand à lui profitait de la ballade dans la poussette avec Mamie J 🙂

5 choses pour lesquelles je suis reconnaissante aujourd’hui : Soleil, Carrie, Etre seule dans un café pendant 2h = Mr H, Réfléchir, Ecrire

The rain finally stopped for more than 24h! The past Autumn/Winter season has been the most wet in the region since 1895. The sun is finally shining boosting my mental health and warming up our hearts. We went for a big morning walk at the Clear creek trail in Silverdale. I played with Ulysse -> Run, jump, be silly… The pregnancy and Theo’s birth reduced the quality time we used to spent together and it shows up in our behavior I miss him, we miss each other. Theodore was enjoying the trail from his stroller with Mamie J 🙂

5 things I am thankful for today : Sun, Carrie, Be alone in a coffee shop for 2 hours = Mr H, Reflection, Writing

56 – Port Townsend rocks!

W56 – Port Townsend rocks!

C’était notre dernier weekend avec “Grand Mamie” avant qu’elle prenne l’avion pour rentrer en France. Nous avons décidé d’aller faire un tour à Port Townsend qui est à 1 heure de la maison au Nord de la péninsule. C’est une très belle petite ville assez touristique à l’architecture principalement victorienne dépaysement assuré! Quand le ciel est découvert on peut facilement admirer du bord de mer, la chaine des Olympiques d’un côté et la chaine des cascades et le Mont Baker de l’autre. Lors de notre promenade sur la Marina et dans le bourg Ulysse à trouvé deux beaux galets peints et cachés par des artistes locaux 🙂 #PortTownsendRocks

That was our last weekend with great grandma before she takes her plane back to France. So we decided to show her Port Townsend which his an 1 hour north away from home. Beautiful touristic little town known for her Victorian’s architecture. When the sky is blue you can enjoy from the beach The Olympic range on one side, The Cascades with the Mount Baker on the other side. We were walking along the marina and in Downtown when Ulysse found a couple of rocks hidden and painted by local artists 🙂 #PortTownsendRocks

Have you ever find hidden painted rocks around your city? Avez-vous déjà trouvé des galets peints et cachés dans votre ville?

42 – Discovery park, Seattle

W42 – Discovery park, Seattle, WA

One of my favorite park in Seattle! The first walk Mr H and I did was in that park back in Feb 2007. Also known as Fort Lawton park, Discovery park is located in Magnolia, easy access when you have a car or you can take the bus 33 or 24 from DT and they will drop you of around it. Outdoor play date, walk and talk with friends and babies. We met in the south parking lot and walk toward the south beach trail down to the beach and the lighthouse. It is one of the best spot to pick up draft wood and watch summer sunset. However I can vouch only on the South part of the beach since each time I went, I never made it to the North part 🙂 Time flew by and realized that we were pretty hungry. I bribed Ulysse with a hot chocolate in order to motivate him to hike back up! We ended up having a quick lunch and took some really cute & free pumpkin patch pictures of the kids in front of our lunch spot.

The pumpkin patch pictures thing made me realized that we have not yet established family traditions, have you?
