Have you ever heard of Fernweh?

Neither had I (thank you Pinterest!)  Its a German word that doesn't have a direct translation into the English language. Basically, it means a longing to travel...a almost physical need to GTFO.

A reboot.

That's what this family needs.

We are very excited to embark on a quick little getaway this weekend.

The mom keeps putting more stuff into my cabinets, and the dad keeps rolling his eyes every time he walks in and spots something new.  It's only for two days!

And I just smile to myself because its finally here.. the moment when I can feel myself being pulled into a new adventure.

There is a lot of rain in the area today and predicted to continue for the weekend.  That's okay.  I don't mind rain. It just means that the family will be hanging out inside more, playing games and spending time together. That's what makes me happy.

Off to explore!!!  See you soon!

A beginning...

This is home...where it begins and ends.

Since I came here, I've only been allowed to go out and explore a few times.  Then, winter came.  Every once in a while, in the cold months, the family would come out to hang out with me and sleep in the beds.  For the most part, I was on my own. 

Until now. 

Spring has arrived and the family is ready to take me out and find adventure!!

How cool is that??  

We have lots of trips planned for the year.  La Conner coming up this weekend, then Spectacle Lake in June.  That will be the farthest I've gone until July.  Then we are headed into another state: Idaho!  We are spending the 4th of July at Silverwood Theme Park with friends, then another trip at the end of July.  

Stay tuned, and share the adventure with us!
