Lake has started putting himself to sleep. Around 8 o’clock he gets tired, he might even rub his eyes. He’s happy to get into bed and fall asleep soon after. This is new and pretty fun!
Since we drove across the state today from Seattle to Newman Lake on the border of Idaho, Mummy is quite ready for bed too! The rain is falling on the roof of the cabin outside in a very welcoming and soothing manner: beckoning for bedtime. We all heed the call! But not before gazing adoringly at Lake… So cute sleeping in his new box bed!
We are so happy to be back here at the Point Petite cabin for a few weeks with Nana and Grandpa! Hello, Newman Lake! Goodnight Lake!
Lake and I had a great urban wander today. Beautiful day! Apple pie. Ten plus miles. We were celebrating his fourth month complete. He’s officially doubled his birth weight. Living well by all accounts.
We packed up efficiently and set out for another day hike. After one last loll in front of the grand fireplace which provided Lake the opportunity to make friends with Leila from Beijing, we headed out to the Longmire area trails. Michael chose a 4.6 mile loop along Rampart Ridge which included a section of the Wonderland Trail. It really is a wonderland, with mosses thickly carpeting the forest floor and lichens draped all through the trees. Lake was in contented awe interrupted with bouts of sheer glee! We are already looking forward to coming back again next year.
Happy First Anniversary, us! We love our life together. So happy to be three! We feel truly blessed.
