introPLAY Picnic at Discovery Park

Today we had a picnic at Discovery Park to celebrate the end of our introLEAGUE. The weather didn’t look so hot this morning with its completely overcast skies and temperature in the low 50′s. However, by popular demand we went out anyway, in true Northwest spirit.

Once there, not only was the picnic fooding really good, but we also took a trail that led us down to the water. Also, since none of us had Frisbees or the like to play with, it forced us to get creative with the games. Like really creative. (See photo above.) That, and the sun came out at the end! Overall, it was a wonderful way to spend the Memorial Day afternoon.

Sun in Seattle (omg finally) – What’d you do?

So needless to say, the weather finally broke out of its dreary mid-40° with rain and we broke the heat record yesterday when it reached 90° out. And man was long overdue. I mean, I’m a definite northwest girl who enjoys her gray skies and misty rain; however, this fall/winter dragged like none other, say 8 months.

Like most in Seattle, I spent this weekend outside a bunch: Friday night BBQ at Aaron & Kelly’s,

Saturday picnic and geocaching at Lincoln Park,

and frozen yogurt with Irene at the Cal Andersen Park. How about you? :)

And although it’s supposed to rain next week, I’m hoping this changes of weather marks at least a turning point in seasons, one in which I can finally closet my long wool coat.


So I’ve finally discovered by snow sport of choice: snowshoeing.

That said, today Ryan and I went with Kevin and some family and friends snowshoeing. And right now, I must admit I’m pretty tuckered out. It was a pretty leisurely trek though and the weather was actually rather nice, not that cold and even sunshine.

The day was full of fooding (as it should be) and I personally had Chinese barbecue pork with mustard, PB&J sandwich, pears, and hot chocolate on our “trail”. For dinner we stopped at a bar and grill where I had a fried oyster sandwich with salad, which was actually really tasty. Good stuff!

I don’t have pictures from today yet, but I’ve been meaning to share this one from our last trip to Mt. Rainier. So with that, I leave you with my snow puppy:

…the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.

To my dearest friend… I wish thee not eternal rest, but eternal life. <3

Pride can stand a thousand trials
the strong will never fall,
But watching stars without
you, My soul cried.
