But have heart we heard how amazing the food is here. That will be something to look forward to, a yummy warm dinner. So picture this... A class of kids, wet and cold and hungry. The last time they ate was back at the visitors center at 11:30, the sack lunch their mom packed. Okay we've hiked all day, 6:00, time to eat!!! After removing all our shoes (at a wilderness camp????) we lined up the kids for din din. Salad and a baked potato. What, seriously the kids were looking around for the main course! And so it continued humus, pita chips, carrot sticks dried apples and dates, eggs and ONE pancake. After the announcement on the second day to "get your layers, we'll be outside for eight hours" being the wusses that we are we packed our bags as quick as we could and practically ran for the car. Tam, myself and Bellie smiling the whole way down the mountain!!!! Isabelle has never been so happy to see Dairy Queen when we pulled into Sedro. So the moral of the story is: Mountain School might be fun in May or September but not in a snow / rain storm in March. And Mountain school might be fun if every minute was not spent filling out a note book and analyzing nature. And if you want to drop a few lbs. hang out there for a while you would waif down to nothing in no time. Ethan and Jack... your going with dad!
Rain on top of snow... Brrrrr
Skits, breakfast and (lunch on the trail) dinner and a brief visit to the microscope lab were the few minutes we spent inside. That part was actually cool.
It is a beautiful facility... maybe in summer?
My little trooper
This is the look I got most of the time... "Your not serious?"
Tam was a trooper too! She even hiked around on a hurt knee, thanks for coming with us Tam!!!!
