A Day at the Falls and the Never Ending Hike

Last week we got together with the McAndrew's again after not seeing them for over 2 months. We went to go see the Snoqualmie Falls and later to hike up to Denny Creek together.

We took a fairly short, but steep hike down to the base of the falls.

There's always lots of photobombing when we get together with the McAndrew's!


After we hiked back up we had lunch, talked, and played ninja.

After that we headed off to Denny Creek.
This is just a creek we passed along the way.

We had some time to pass while the dads figured out the parking pass, so we climbed on tree stumps and Daniel and Matt got into some sort of invisible weapons battle.



And then finally we started on the '20' minute hike. About 20 minutes into it we started asking Sereina (who had planned the hike) how much farther. She said we should be almost there and then 10 minutes later we still weren't there. 10 more minutes of hiking and we still weren't there. It ended up taking close to an hour to get there, and it was really hot and parts of the hike were really steep!

But we did finally make it, only to find the water way too cold to get really wet it. It was like glacier water, and for anyone who's never been in glacier water, it's like as cold as water can get without freezing.





After that we headed back to the car and ended up going to XXX Root Beer, which has like the best root beer in the world! We played telephone, quack-dilli-oso, more ninja, and for like the last hour we were playing concentration.
