Betty in the Wild

In honor of this week's reprise, I decided to take Kate and James on a mini vacation with Dr. van der Stevejinck and I.  They chose not to go to the cinema with us on Friday - but they did tag along on Saturday went we ventured out to Pike Place Market.  As a cook, Kate especially enjoyed the World Spice Merchants - and was more than happy to help us choose some salt-free spice blends.

 In spite of it being the end of May, the weather was persistently cool and overcast. Fortunately it stayed dry enough to leave most of the brollies and macs in our great socking mini-van. James brought his, just in case.
 After church on Sunday morning, we all donned some sensible lace-ups for a walk near the beautiful Snoqualmie Falls.

Going somewhere fun this summer? Take along a Betty Book and take some of your own "Betty in the Wild" pictures.  Send the pictures and descriptions to and we will be happy to post them!


  1. Thanks for the pictures, Betty Debbie. Haven't "laid my plans yet" which is a good thing because (the best laid plans and so on...), at present, I don't know when/if I will get time off from work this summer. If I go anywhere special I'll be sure to take a Betty along.

  2. If you managed to go to Pike Place without stopping at Beecher's for cheese, I tip my (very ladylike) hat to your self-control! I hope you managed to take home some flowers as well... I never can resist those either!

  3. Love buying flowers at Pike Place! I'm not a big cheese lover, so I never buy cheese.

  4. The falls are beautiful... I'd like to go there someday.
