Easter in Republic

We were so excited to finally be able to go spend a holiday with family! We drove to up and over to Republic for Easter with John's parents.

Here are some shots of the Cascades as we drove through.

We were amazed by the mountains. It's almost like we forgot they existed! They are so big and imposing, like they should be. After we got through the mountains we came into farm land. I had no idea that apples and pears were grown so far north along the Columbia. There must have been millions of acres of fruit trees just starting to bloom.

For Easter dinner, we had lamb (my first one) and for dessert I made the Brownie Sundae Cheesecake from Junior's cookbook.

John took this panoramic view off the back deck of the house overlooking the lake.
(With his phone!)
We had a great time getting up into the mountains and are looking forward to spending more holidays with family.
