The birthday boy opening artwork sent by his cousins Eli (age 3.5) and Henry (age 2). We celebrated in style with breakfast at the historic Lake Quinault Lodge in the temporate rainforest of the Olympic Peninsula. Our waiter suggested we drive the loop road around the Lake, which proved to be a real treat (at least for me!) as Dave spotted, and we all watched, a herd of Roosevelt Elk grazing by the riverside. That evening we slept in a yurt (photo above is from inside) at Cape Disappointment, which happens to be the end point where the Lewis & Clark expedition met the Pacific ocean. We are reading all about L & C now in school.
