It's Beginning to Feel Like Fall!

We are slowlly getting back into our fall routine.  Our choir sang for the first time since June, we've taked a few nice drives, and we've had fun with our local grandkids. After a recent rain, we drove out to see Snoqualmie Falls and were rewarded with a rainbow on the way home!

We walked a little ways down the trail, and I convinced Dick to let me take his picture. Isn't that an interesting log?


The little bit of rain gave way to a nice rainbow. Can you see it hiding in the clouds?


This weekend we walked with Max and Stella down to the Magnolia Farmer's Market. We bought some bread and peaches before stopping at the park nearby


They both had great fun on the equipment, especially this slide.


No trip to the playground is complete without playing in the sand and 

running through the tunnels.  After they were done playing, we trudged back home up some significent hills.  I hope they slept well that afternoon.  We were sure tired!


The day before we took a fun road trip to Port Gamble. It's such a pretty town, and it has a great yarn shop and a really nice quilt shop.  All of the buildings are well kept up, just like this one.


And for me,  car trips also mean knitting time.  The Multnomah shawl is done; it was so much fun to use this gradient yarn!


Hope your week was as nice as ours!

That waterfall is fabulous! And what a sweet photo of your guy. That is an amazing log.
The gradient yarn really is perfect for your Multnomah. It gives the shawl an extra kick!

Isn't it nice to be back into a routine? The shawl is georgous. I've never used gradient yarn...it's on my yarn wish list.

I LOVE Port Gamble. I bought a very pretty antique ring there last time I visited, more than ten years ago. You posted some really beautiful photos in this post. What a lovely time you are having. That tree is quite interesting.

Love that picture of Dick! It looks like he is sitting on a geode.

Your shawl turned out lovely. I'm sure you will have the weather to use it soon.
