The Early Worm Catches the Bird.

This is the story of two (goofy) people...

Who got up early one morning,


to experience an adventure on the Pacific Ocean.





There was excitement in the air...


As well as a brisk breeze, which required lots of clothing.


They started out with the sun just barely lighting up the sky behind the Cascade Mountain...



They were looking for two things:

A sunrise

and

Eagles.

So they paddled out, dropped anchor, and then there was...



and...

And then, all of a sudden....





And as soon as the sun was up...


So we paddled back towards shore a little, and saw...





And then came the....


And thus ended our adventure.



I made sure to find a...



And on our way home, we climbed above the fog and saw a spectacular view...

Later that same day...



We enjoyed a picnic at the beach...

And my mind was flooded with feelings of...

Same facial expressions...

Thanks Dad for a really beautiful "Daddy-Daughter" date out on the canoe. It was worth the 4:00am wakeup call. Next time hopefully Will won't be out on a scout overnighter and he can go on a Father-in-Law, Son-in-Law date. But then again, let's not call it that.

Love you guys.

Wow!! You got to love the great Northwest!!
Love the pictures of your early morning date with your Dad. I'm so jealous. I LOVE the Northwest, and Father Daughter time. How fun!
Preston is such a cutie. He's growing up so fast.

So beautiful, we can't wait until we are back into the northwest.

Wow Jenni. Those are some amazing pictures! I'm sure it was more breathtaking in person. Pictures never do scenery justice. And man, I can sure see the red in Preston's hair now! (Maybe it's my new monitor or the fact that his hair is growing in better. Nah, it's the monitor!)

Dad had fun with you too Jen. Preston and I were snoring away while you and dad were out on the water......we'd need a little bigger canoe for all of us to go at the same time. Glad that you could come up for the weekend! Bring Will next time!

Oh, BYW, if anyone is wondering why the eagles don't have white tail feathers, it's because they are quite young. It's the more mature eagles that have the white tail feathers. The eagles in the trees that do not any have white on them (head or tails) is because they are babies.....less than two years old.

Jen, did you notice in the first photo, how much you and dad look alike?

That's awesome. I can't believe all of the eagles. What an awesome dad you have.
