Here’s some snippits of December at the Wrights.
I was needing a trip “home” to Oregon, and Thanksgiving seemed like the perfect opportunity. The long drive is getting a little more doable as the kids get older and we were able to make it in one day. The weather was incredible and we soaked up every moment with family. I gained a new-found love for trail running with my sister-in-law, Geoff gave a presentation at OSU on his Innovation research, and the kids enjoyed time with Ami and Poppy and their cousins. We took lots of videos while we were there, so the pictures will be short and sweet.
The day before Thanksgiving, a flock of wild turkeys roamed around my parents foggy yard. Isaac and cousin Thomas made detailed drawings of how they were going set traps and shoot them with their bow and arrows the next morning. Apparently the turkeys caught wind of their devious plan and were nowhere to be seen the next day.
Our second stop on our summer roadtrip was to my grandparent’s house on the Olympic Peninsula, a beautiful piece of the world just a short drive off the ferry from Seattle. It had been quite a while since we’d been been back, and the first time for our kids. Beautiful, calm, serene and brimming with amazing ocean scenery. Plus, the company is pretty great too! We spent hours talking, picking raspberries, walking along the beach, visiting Port Townsend, eating delicious food and reconnecting. I’ve always loved their house, but I felt a greater sense of appreciation for my grandma’s beautiful style and all their unique additions from their travels around the world.
