Summer of 2013 has come and gone, and it was a busy one filled with family, food and sunshine. We meant to get more hiking in, but it wasn't until the last few days that we even got out in the forest. It was worth the wait to spend time with those beautiful Northwest trees.
After saying goodbye to Washington, we took a very long flight (these seem to be getting longer as I get older) to Amsterdam to spend two days before heading back to work in Saudi. Day one was spent sleeping almost the whole day as we were shattered after not a wink of shuteye on the plane. This morning, I was out early in search of coffee and soaked up the early morning light. The houseboats on the canals are just so darn cool. I love how this cluster of houseboats had such a pretty view of willow trees and grass.
On the agenda today was a canal ride, but it was raining pretty hard earlier. We switched to going to the science museum after morning naps to get over our jetlag. Hoping we can still catch a canal ride later on if the weather holds up!
