Of course, for me, going over the mountians couldn't be complete with out stopping at one of Washingtons apple orchards! Beautiful isn't it?
And guess what?? (For Erika and Katie especially) I learned to KNIT!!! I (some how) pick up more stitches than I have any idea how to drop, and my knitting is still CRAZY tight, but I did it... and I have a 10 inch piece of wool cloth to prove it. :) Yep, I stole the kids finger knitting yarn. Today I was a good mama and went out and bought some of my own. I also got two 'in the round' sets of needles and I am excited to say I want to try my own hat for the new baby as soon as I get the hang of casting on.
