Washington is beautiful, even in the rain. I have to say that because we went hiking Sunday in Washington in the rain. I love the Pacific Northwest, I mean I hate the rain some times but that all goes together I guess. We went hiking by the Dosewallips River, it was raining but it was beautiful. The daughter was in a state of awe the entire trip. The hike was a quick incline followed by a mile or so meandering throughout the woods around waterfalls and finally back down the hillside (or as my city boy husband calls it – a mountain lol).

On the other hand after not very much research I have discovered that dogs aren’t allowed in Yellowstone. That seems perfectly reasonable but for our situation that really just sucks. We are moving our entire household, dog included, we don’t have a place for him while we adventure. The husband said and I quote “most people would give their up for adoption, but I don’t want to do that.” That honestly didn’t even cross my mind. I was thinking doggy daycare. There are plenty of options for that but I am worried about leaving my pup with strangers for a day. What if he decides to “play” which to a boxer is all mouth and boxing? What if he gets scared? What if there isn’t room for him when we plan to be there? Ugh hate all this.
Travelling sucks! So we have pretty much ruled out some of the things we were looking for. We can’t go to the Grand Canyon or New Orleans. New Orleans was the one thing I was very much looking forward to.
Well I’m not sure where I was going with all this my mind is frazzled.
