Trip to Moses Lake

View from BIL's back patio--lots of birds eating grass seed

We recently went to visit my husband's 2nd oldest brother and his wife who live in Moses Lake, WA. Accompanying us was hubby's 3rd oldest brother and his wife. We were having a mini family reunion. One brother and a sister were missing.

My SIL was sooo brave because brother #3 and his wife plus hubby and I are vegan (well, I am 95% of the time anyway--salmon calls my name occasionally). SIL eats meat and brother #2 is vegetarian. I think we freaked her out a little bit:( However, she did a marvelous job feeding us! She even baked a Tropical Cream Pie--totally vegan! Good Job! I forgot to get the recipe so will have to email her for it! She barbecued salmon burgers and veggie burgers (guess which one I had...yup! the salmon burger) that we ate with corn on the cob, watermelon and salads! Like I said, she did a good job! I don't she'll be so fearful the next time she has a Vegan Invasion!

I don't think I have ever been to Moses Lake before and it is beautiful! For a small town, they really have a lot going on! There is a Water Park, Farmer's Market, Concerts and lots of water activities. The lake is huge! There are several RV parks and motels with wonderful lakefront access!

Another view from the back patio
BIL took us for a boat ride to see the lake. WOW! It was impressive! There were several boats on the lake as well as Jet Skiers but where did all the water skiers go?!!! We didn't see one water skier! My SIL indicated that people just don't water ski any more! Is that true?!!!

We had a great time visiting the Farmer's Market and attended the Five Suns Bluegrass Festival on Saturday night! We spent a lot of time visiting and enjoying family!

I hope you are enjoying your summer with family and friends!



  1. I'm not a vegan, and not even a vegetarian, but Topical Cream Pie sounds really good :) Sounds like you had a great time!

    1. The pie really was yummy and could be made with dairy as well. I will try to get the recipe to share.
