Soooooo...


this is a brochure for an art tour my mom and I did together on Mother's Day weekend for several years. We would tour art studios in the morning, do Thai food for lunch, and then tour more studios and galleries in the afternoon.

I decided I really wanted to be...
not here
this weekend.
So my most awesome Mr. Logo took me away for the weekend.
We went to Banks Lake in central WA. We camped at Steamboat Rock State Park and brought along a camper and boat. It was a 14 ft. boat with a 25 hp motor.
bruuuum bruuuuum
I did a lot of reading and of course, as you undoubtedly know, there is nothing - simply nothing -half so much worth doing as messing about in boats.
Sunday afternoon we all went out and had a water picnic and beached on a very quiet and secluded sandy beach in a deserted alcove of the lake and it felt as if we had a corner of the world to ourselves.
Thing One and Mr. Logo hiked up to a sort of mesa affair overlooking our private beach. The grandpapa and Ariella did a fair bit of walking along the shore (and some racing and splashing on occasion, at least for the canine). Thing Two occupied his time with sand castle building and shell collecting.
We visited the Rocky Reach Dam while we were over there, and
of course,
we consumed more smores than seemed entirely decent.
It was a lovely weekend.
Hope you all enjoyed yourselves!

I loved all of your photos, but that second to the last one is truly stunning! I am glad Mr. Logo knew to take you somewhere you could make new, wonderful memories. You honor your mother by continuing to embrace and cherish life.
