  • Arizona Ladystravaganza

  • My fabulous Sister-in-law had her birthday at the beginning of September. In order to celebrate, 20 of her closest friends descended on the Arizona house for a week to party it up Jody style.

  • Lake Crescent and The Devil's Punchbowl

  • Lake Crescent was a few miles from us, and just inside the Olympic National Park. It reminded me of St.Mary Lake in MT size wise. We did a little hike into a tiny inlet called Devil's Punchbowl. The water was an amazing blue color and is a popular cliff jumping spot.  ^^The only way we can get [...]

  • Lake Sutherland

  • After Seattle, we drove  onto the Olympic Peninsula. All of our accommodations were planned only a day or two ahead of time, and the gem of the trip was a cottage rental I found on Lake Sutherland, just outside of Port Angeles. The cottage was adorable and the lake was warm, and incredible clear. Yo [...]
  • Remlinger Farms

  • We were lucky enough to get two weeks off at the end of August. In typical Oviatt form, it was the night before vacation and we still hadn't decided where we were going. So we decided to head to the ocean. With about 3 hours planning (explains the worst pack job ever), we loaded up the kids and some [...]
  • Fishing on the Colorado River

  • When we were down in AZ, Lee took his dad on a float trip on the Colorado River up near Paige. He took the following shots with our little point-and-shoot camera. I'm wondering why I spent all that money on my DSLR....

  • Some pics from our most recent trip to AZ. It was a big couple weeks for Jack. He learned to swim the width of the pool without a floatie and ride his bike without training wheels.
