The weather may be fantastic today, however, the best part about this wonderful morning is I get to go through my pictures and my memories of a fantastic weekend spent with my daughter! We had beautiful weather all weekend! I thought we were going to have some rain during our time in Washington, but it didn't materialize! We were truly blessed!
Eating the best pie ever at Harvest House.
We found a few golden delicious apples on the tree, but the pickings were slim this year. We ended up buying some apples from the store at Walter's Fruit Ranch instead. I have to tell you though, that is still way better than anything we can find here in Montana!
Of course we found a few pumpkins at Knapp's pumpkin patch. They have the best pumpkins around!! As you can see, we had a great time!! One of these days we are going to have to go out in the spring and early summer to pick some cherries and strawberries! Yum!
Later that day, we ate at the Olive Garden and had a very nice and relaxing dinner. We were able to talk and just enjoy one another's company. I treasure that time! After dinner we went back to our hotel and I hemmed Heidi's dress slacks for her upcoming nursing school interview. We were all pretty exhausted and called it an early night. Sunday we had breakfast at our hotel and then we had to take them back to Heidi's apartment. It was hard for us to say goodbye. Heidi is so settled and she is so at home now. It was a lot different having her live in an apartment rather than the dorms. I really don't know how to explain it except to say, we were going back home and leaving her at her own home. I guess it is just another step in the leaving and cleaving process. It is one of those bitter/sweet things that you are happy and sad about at the same time. I guess I will just suffice it to say, we are so proud of our daughter and we had the best time this weekend!!
The drive home was absolutely amazing. The Tamarack trees were in their prime and the forest was ablaze! I don't know if you have ever had the chance to see a forest full of changing Tamarack trees, but if you ever get the chance, it is a sight to see! The pictures just don't do them justice.
Thanks for looking!! I hope you all have a great day!!
