Tales of a transplanted Midwestern family living life in the Cascade Mountains.
I don't shop very often...
and it's even more rare that I enjoy shopping and get caught up in it, but that's exactly what happened Saturday as the family spent a couple hours at REI's flagship store in Seattle. What started as a visit to see what it had in store and pick up some winter gear for the kids turned into a free-for-all for Amy and I as we spent far more than planned. Of course, it's about time I upgraded my winter gear wardrobe, as it's stood pat for almost 15 years now. Now I am ready for winter tubing and skiing!
