Something to balance out all the rain-and-darkness-related bitching:

This is why we put up with the gray weather. I’ll need another reminder in a week or so.

This is why we live here, and put up with winter. For days like this. Lovely pictures!

These are really the days that make Pacific Northwest winter bearable, aren’t they?

Were you over at Fay Bainbridge? That’s my neck of the woods! And yes – days like this are why we put up with the gray, dark, raining forever and ever oh god kill me now winters.

I had the same thought as @Heather C – T-shirts in February!? You dog!
The pictures are beautiful as is the family.

What the? Where’s the snow? Where’s the huge winter boots and snow pants and toques and mitts and jackets and scarves?

Ottawa, I am putting you on notice…

I hope I can say in a totally not creepy way that you have an extremely attractive spouse. There is nothing more beautiful to me than my husband hanging with my kid. Gorgeous day and gorgeous family!

I have got to travel up that way, I’ve never been, and it looks gorgeous!
Riley is JB’s little mini me isn’t he? And Dylan is just as cute as a bug! No pictures of you?
I know, there’s never any pictures of me either!

Weird – three people from Ottawa? I’m not there right now, but I’m from there and my sister still lives there.

I had a great Sunday too, but I didn’t leave the house …

Love the reflection photo.

JEALOUS!! We are on the other side of the state and have been trying to get back to the west side for a year now, just for those days. So beautiful, miss is so much.

I am moving out there.
It is 50 degrees in MA right now and I am loving it, but we still have 1,000 feet of snow.

Ok that does it.

I have been reading your blog for a while now but have never commented.

These pictures of your boys bring back so many memories for me. I was born and raised in Seattle and we had a summer cabin on Whidbey Island (60’s and 70’s) and every summer was spent like “Huckleberry Finn”….bare feet, beaches and bon fires! And the ferry’s back then were not as modern. I remember the Illahee, Klickitat, Nisqually and Quinalt when all you had was a hallway to walk thru on the upper deck. Most of my Family still live up there and I even have a sister that raised her boys on Whidbey so I know how crazy Seattle has gotten.

I know that you have been contemplating moving to Oregon (Roseburg?), actually I live on the Oregon Coast right now (Florence) and surely it is a beautiful place but I have to say nothing compares to the beautiful NW corner of the USA called “Puget Sound”. Your boys will have memories that will last a lifetime.

Thanks so much for these wonderful pics it made my day.

Oh, Seattle! My heart aches. We didn’t live there long enough. It’s those mountain views that peek out just when you’ve given up, that make you decide you can go on.

I’m pretty close to Ottawa (near Belleville) and we had a beautiful warm day on Thursday and paid like hell for it last night (twisters anyone?). Seattle is like Canada’s Vancouver I guess, we all look at so longingly (especially during February).

BTW. LOVE this blog, been reading for a few months now. My kids are all grown now (23,22,21 and 18) and these beautiful kids take me back.

You live in a beautiful place! They just don’t have nice outdoor spaces to venture out to as a family here in Kansas. We have to take a trip to see any beautiful nature.
