Most of my friends and I have known one another since high school and throughout the years we've remained the same but at the same time, have all grown so much. We're all either already married or is getting married...so these little trips together when we're all without kids are very special to us. We know as soon as one of us start having kids, the others will follow and our lives will be changed (for the better of course) from then on. But for now, we enjoy our times together as couples.

We came upon a side of Lake Easton and it was just beautiful. It was quite dangerous though because behind us was a huge straight fall into the rocky lake.
Ahh...serene and beautiful!
It's places like this that make me appreciate Seattle. Just 10 minutes from this lake is a ski lodge. So imagine in the winter time, you're able to ski in the morning and then come down to the lake to canoe and hike. Where else can you ski and canoe in the same day? Also, it's only an hour drive from Seattle.
Have anyone played "Spoons"? It's a great card game where you pass the cards around the group really fast and you try to get four of a kind. As soon as someone gets it, they grab a spoon in the center...then everyone else will have to grab a spoon as well as fast as they can. There's always one less spoon than the number of people playing, so one person will always lose. It was so much fun!
We ventured to the other side of the lake where there was a beach area. The weather held out...it was 75!

Here we're cooking breakfast and boiling water for our coffee. We're all coffee crazy people here...since Seattle's our home.
I have no idea what my hubby was doing here!
A fun shot on the lake. :)
It was definitely a fun trip but I was glad it was over. It's not fun to be without a real bathroom and shower for two days. I have to admit that camping isn't for me. I know there are people that just love it, but it can't appeal to everyone, or else it'd be really expensive! I loved connecting with the nature and my friends, but we can do that in a cabin right? :) Sleeping in a tent was a fun experience though...although it was so cold that first night. I wanna say it was in the 40's that night and we were covered in three layers of blankets.
Our friends and I were discussing a final trip together before we all settle down. Maybe to Hawaii? :) Who knows! Can't wait!
