Spring in Seattle

Ahh...Today was one of those days that makes me thankful for our decision to move here. It was one of those breathtakingly gorgeous days that Seattlites live here for.

We went on attempted a hike today after Addie's nap. I say "attempted" because we didn't end up where we intended to. Since Addie woke up late from her nap, we Willie decided we could just go to a more local hike than the one we planned on. So, he chose a really cool sounding hike, the end of which would look out over Seattle at a view point. This hike was an "anti-aircraft" look out point used in WWII, complete with missile silos! How cool would that be?!

I wouldn't know. Unfortunately, the crappy very informative hiking book we have gave us directions to the wrong starting point. In fact, we were about 10 miles off from where we intended to be. Since there were other various trail heads leading off from the park we ended up at, we decided to attempt one of those trails. They sucked didn't live up to expectations. They were all very very steep, and very very narrow, with no views, logs down in the trail, and loose gravel. I wasn't about to go very far under those conditions with a 6 month old strapped to me.

We did, however, find a sign pointing towards a view point and picnic area, and decided to stop and enjoy a good view on a perfect day.
