I got a tip from a reader that there were Great Horned Owls out at Toppenish Wildlife Refuge, so I ran out and grabbed my camera and waited passionately out in the woods. Owls are graceful and powerful raptors. I was lucky enough to see an owlet, juvenile, and a full grown adult. These creatures are as magical as Miyazaki’s Totoro!
This has been an amazing family weekend. It had a bit of a rough start with B and I both having the flu but thankfully it was just a 24 hour thing for each of us. We were still able to continue with our plans of spending our weekend enjoying our fall traditions and seeing some of our new extended family. We headed to one of our favorite places in Toppenish to the Northern Pacific Railway Museum for their Pumpkin Run.
On Sunday we headed over to the west side of the state to meet the newest member of our family baby girl Moore.
Her tinie tiny hands.
I was loving snuggling her.
On our way home after an excellent visit with Chris’ family we couldn’t have asked for better behavior from our child. We decided to surprise B and stop and see some more trains as a reward. We stopped in Snoqualmie at their adorable train station and museum.
The fall colors in this area were amazing and I just couldn’t help myself from letting B run on the tracks (even though I am sure that we are not suppose to) and taking a few images.
Snoqualmie was definately a huge hit and we plan to go back for their Santa Train next month!!
