Snow Goose Produce

I try to make my morning post, in general, something inspirational. I like to share something that will get your day off to the right start. Although I'm taking a break from the norm this week, I will say that I find today's post inspirational. It's not  quite the same kind of inspiration as I get from gazing into the Hoh Rainforest or reading my Bible, but it's good stuff. Let me introduce Snow Goose Produce.

If you love road side stands, farmers markets, and ice cream cones the size of your head (well, almost), you've just found a reason to head north of Seattle and into the farmland of rural Washington!
Wow! 1,000 feet above sea level! This is really only funny to those of us who live a mile high. 
I LOVE IT!


A true claim to fame: "immodest ice cream cones!" We saw several groups of precious old ladies come through the line. When you know you're getting on in years, why wouldn't you indulge in a 2,000 calorie treat?
I love when things are old because they are actually old, not just because it's cool to look old. Case in point, the hanging scale above.







It's not surprising that this little stand has their own brand of jams and jellies. Just take a look at the farmland pictured below...right across the street.

















You are not going home empty handed when you see victuals like these sitting in arms reach! Morels, freshly baked breads, organic herbs... it was a little closer to heaven here, I'm telling you!













And the piece de resistance: Dungeness crab, right out of the bay (remember Sequim and the Dungeness Bay from earlier this week?).
See? They're waving to you saying, "Take me home and eat me!"

Oh wait! You're not actually there. Oops... Sorry. But that's why you have to go! You can get one already cooked like these little fellas or...











pick out your favorites from the tank. That's what we did. So come back later for "how to kill a crab" (it's not gonna stick the knife in itself gals) and a true Pacific Northwest recipe for how to eat your buttery and delicious crustacean.

Make a Difference: Black Stallion Literacy Program

Although it's hard to pin down our very favorite summer activity, one would have to be our afternoon with the Black Stallion Literacy Project. I was unfamiliar with the program until it was brought to the HoneyBear Tree Preschool at our church and my children attended with other children from the community. The Black Stallion Literacy Project (BSLP) is a program that is well represented around the front range in Colorado, but extends across the country from it's roots in Florida.

Born of a family heritage in 1999, BSLP has grown to serve hundreds of thousands of children across the nation. The purpose and goal of the organization is clear on their website:


"The Black Stallion Literacy Foundation is an innovative partnership of educators, businesses, volunteers, education foundations, and staff members focused on promoting literacy through the winning combination of live horses and books by Walter Farley. The program is based on the classic books of Walter Farley an…

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic.

"Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration."
