This last week Mike and I did a series of daycations. At first I was feeling bummed to not get out of the area, but quickly lost my disappointment as we found adventure at our doorstep. We were all over the place, Woodinville for wine tasting, Seattle for lunch and coffee, watching Inception (yes, I am in love with it), etc, etc.
The last day we decided to go a bit further off the grid. Neither of us had been up to Sunrise at Mt Rainier, at least in our known memory, so we headed out. The day before an extremely thoughtful and loving friend, knowing I am in love with cupcakes and quite enchanted with Cupcake Royal, had picked up the darling bundles for us at that very place. So we packed those little babies gently in the back seat and headed for the mountain. I had wanted to take pictures of my precious on our hike, but the mosquitoes were on a rampage that day, and the sugar got their little taste buds blazing. So, here is my delicate fresh strawberry cupcake overlooking the majestic view at Sunrise lookout.
