Weekends

Our weekends have been incredibly full this summer and we've not been home much at all.  Last week we changed our weekend plans to even better weekend plans which included 4 days with friends - friends we haven't seen for two whole years!  What a treat to have so much time to catch up, although it did seem to go by awfully quickly.  Happily we were able to include some hiking and biking time in the weekend and that is also more fun with friends.
E was our spotter during the hike and he managed to find us all kinds of goodies.
Delicious wild strawberries - we were up high enough that they were still available.
And, even more exciting - huckleberries.
A mountainside full of them.
And then when we went to the pond to see the tadpoles I'd heard were in abundance this year...
we found hundreds of tiny frogs instead - clusters of them huddled together.  It was quite a sight.
Weekends are good!

Wow! Strawberries and Blueberries - Looks a bit chilly up there - the frogs are amazing...

Hopefully the frogs are a sign of something good. So many things have been effected by this wacky weather we have been having.

Wild strawberries! Wow. Haven't had those since hiking in the Alps as a kid. They're the most amazing flavour packets- all the taste of a large strawberry concentrated in something 1/5th the size.
