Skamania Lodge {Stevenson, WA}

A few weeks ago when my husband just got back from some military training, he surprised me and took me to Skamania Lodge {a resort in Washington state, just across the Columbia River} for some mommy daddy time! Whenever we spend lots of time away from each other, we like to recharge and reconnect sans kids. So that’s what we did 🙂







This was the beautiful view from our room!! It’s seriously so pretty there!


Inside the lodge.




Before we left, Gordon thought it would be a good idea to go on an “easy hike”. Only problem with that is I’m clumsy and nearly killed my self because I kept tripping over tree roots in the trail, plus I wore sandals….not smart. I’d also like to mention I was huffing and puffing because I was 19 weeks pregnant and have eleven million quarts of blood in me, but kept trying to act like I wasn’t out of breath. Not smart. Thankfully my husband held my hand the whole time and guided me through. He’s such a sweet man, you guys. These are the pictures from me having to stop to catch my breath to ‘take pictures’ that hike.

And of course I had to get some ice cream this trip too! Got it at a place called Eastwind Drive-In back over in Oregon in a tiny town called Cascade Locks.

Info about Skamania Lodge here. It’s a great spot for relaxing, golfing and getting it away from it all 🙂

  1. This is so cute. I love the peaceful place like that. You guys should check out Suncadia next time. I know it’s kinda far from you but so worth it. Great place for kids too.

  2. I love Skamania Lodge. So gorgeous.
    Yes, I too did a hike with my hubby two weeks before giving birth to my first child. We hiked up to Mirror Lake and back. I wore tennis shoes 🙂 Made it much easier.
    So glad you guys take time to just be husband and wife. It’s healthy.

  3. Awesome! Always enjoy your posts! We had a amazing trip out West with our son, his blog – and on fb

  4. What a gorgeous place! It doesn’t look too touristy either!

  5. Beautiful! What an amazing husband you have.
