Hiking!

Greg and I had a great weekend enjoying the hot summer weather! Greg thought it would be fun to do a little day hiking trip, and I was totally up for it after a long week wrapping up my International Business Final, and Biblical Exegesis homework!
We headed North to the Lake Serene Trail.
The weather was perfect, still being pretty early in the morning...
As you start to approach Bridal Veil Falls, there are some steep steps to assist your hike...
Bridal Veil Falls were beautiful! It started getting a little warm by the time we reached the falls, so the breeze and cool misty spray from the powerful falls were VERY refreshing! Because of the heavy mist from the falls, there were only a few spots I was able to hide to snap some pic from without getting my camera too wet.
I wish I could have got closer because the falls go so much higher than you can see here...there was just too much spray that made me super nervous for my camera!
As always, the hike back down was very enjoyable with great views!
The hike took us less time than we thought, so we headed North another hour to Leavenworth. The last time we were there was last December when we took the Snow Train up from Seattle. This is the authentic German resturant that we ate at back when there was tons of snow. We had a MUCH different experience this time! It was 101 degrees when we arrived! We walked around a little, but decided the heat was not so enjoyable.
I wish I would have got a better shot of this guy...such a cute little old German...I just wanted to give him a hug, or something! 
We had such a great time just getting to hang out together. I have been so busy with school and such the last few weeks that we would have had a great time doing just about anything...as long as it was together! I am SO thankful for such a wonderful, loving and amazing husband!
Love you, baby! Thanks for a great weekend!

I'm all over next time! I can't wait to wear the fanny-pack. Looked like a great time, even though Greg told me he was, "dying" on this hike. Heehee!

Looks like a great time! So...I was watching USA softball the other day and thought about all the times I watched you play. Man, I miss that.
