This weekend John and I drove up to my parent's cabin near Deming, close to the Canadian Border. We took the time Friday evening to do something I have been wanting to do for a LONGGGG time! Visit a Sonic Drive In! There is a new Sonic in Puyallup, about 45 minutes from our house, so we decided to stop. My goodness, the place was packed, and there were about 20 cars waiting for a parking slot. We decided to do the drive thru, as we didn't want to wait that long, but it still took 20 minutes to get our chance at the window. Yummy food! Now I really am looking forward to getting one here in Olympia/Lacey!
Saturday we slept in until nearly 11, then decided it was just too nice of a day to spend it just sitting around, so we hopped back in the car and headed up Highway 20, the North Cascades Highway, which follows along the Skagit River. We went as far as Lake Diablo before turning around and heading home, but my goodness it was gorgeous! We stopped in Newhalem and walked the gardens behind the hydroelectric plant, and found a visitor center inside the plant that we did not know was there...it was interesting to see the big machinery.
