Visiting Washington

Hi guys! Guess what, I'm on vacation up in beautiful Washington!
I love coming up to visit my grandparents, who live right next to a little lake, called Phantom Lake. I love the way it smells up here, and listening to the geese honk at nights. Once I saw a sea otter in the lake while I was out canoeing! Sea otters are one of my favorite types of animals. I kept an eye out, but didn't see any this year.

It's not as hot here as it is back home in Utah! And everything is so green because they get so much rain. My grandpa loves to garden, and there are so many fun places to explore in their yard. There is a little pond there too, with frogs in it!

I love going down to the dock to look out over the lake. In the afternoons it's warmer and we can go swimming, but the mornings are a little chilly!

Guess what I see?

A whole bunch of beautiful water lilies!

I'm having such a wonderful time! We're planning a hiking trip soon, I can't wait to show you pictures!


  1. Those are pretty flowers! That sounds pretty cool! I didn't know sea otters were found Washington.

  2. Whoa, Washington State is so pretty! I love hiking around lush, green areas, so your upcoming hiking trip sounds pretty fun to me. :)

  9. Piper, Washington is so beautiful, isn't it? I got to go there on a trip a few summers ago. I didn't see any wild sea otters, but I did see them at the aquarium in Seattle.

    Your grandparents' place looks really fun. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos!

  10. Washington is so pretty! Jordan is trying to convince her mom to take us up to Washington, then back down through California, and back up to K.S. through Texas! But she also likes her dad's idea of going through Colorado, to Utah and back around Arizona and New Mexico, then back through Texas...WE personally think Washington sounds better. Trees! And rain! And water! We don't have those in Kansas. :D

    I just love your photos! Where did you get those adorable boots?? Are they retired AG?
