Owyn’s Adventures ~ Candy Mountain

Owyn is getting in the holiday spirit! We decided to make a bunch of holiday goodies last weekend, and little Owyn wanted to lend a helping trunk. (Don’t worry, he was thoroughly washed before he went stomping around!) Most things he wasn’t able to help me with, but when it came to rolling up the little balls of dough, he did great! They all needed to be almost as big as he was, but little Owyn was very much up to the task. In the end, we made some amazing little cookie dough truffles, which I’m sure I’ll be sharing with you in another post.

Ice and frost do very little to get in the way of humans, but for little Owyn, it poses quite the obstacle. On a recent hike out with Thom and I, Owyn found himself trudging through arctic tundras all the way up to his trunk! Tiny towers of icicles on a table are suddenly enormous ice stacks as far as the eye can see. But his tiny little legs melted them so easily after being curled up in my warm pocket.

It’s barely the start of the cold season and Owyn is already excited for snow. But for now, he’s content with the icy areas we find from time to time while out and about.

Owyn has always been an adventurous soul. From the moment we picked him up from that little shop in Dublin, he’s been going on adventures that his tiny little leliphant legs could never take him on before. I mean, how many elephants do you see riding commercial airplanes?

Along the trail to Lake 22 in Granite Falls, Wa, there’s a little place perfect for little Owyn and his tiny, adventurous self. Hidden among the day to day of normal hikers, this small alcove is a delightful gem for someone like Owyn. A place where he can feel big like the rest of his family, with tall trees and huge mushrooms.

His own little slice of Nirvana.

One of the first trips Thom and I went on after he got here was to the Dash Point State Park in Federal Way. A small little beach park on a cloudy day. Just somewhere to go to get out of the house and enjoy a peaceful walk in nature. During the drive there, the rain was very come and go. We weren’t sure what to expect for the time while we were there, but thankfully had brought coats with us just in case.

And of course, we brought Owyn as well. There was much for little Owyn to see on the beach and we got many pictures. We stumbled upon this crab shell on our walk along the beach and it was the perfect size for him to stand next to and get a cute little photo op. Our adventurous little leliphant.

Owyn is an adventurous little elephant.

Or “leliphant” as Thom and I like to call him. This little stone elephant has come all the way from Dublin, Ireland from my first visit to see Thom and he’s been in our hearts ever since. We started taking him on a lot of our outings and adventures to parks and such, and it didn’t take very long for it to just be one of our “things” that we do. Now Owyn has his own little adventurous personality and we have so much fun with it.

The other day while out on another little adventure with Thom and Owyn, I thought to myself that I wanted to start sharing our pictures of his little adventures here on the blog. And since I’ve been a little absent on the blog for the past couple of days, I figured what better time than now!

Owyn

Owyn started his life in a little shop in Dublin and since then has been on so many adventures with us. He came all the way to America, ventured back across seas to Dublin, and is now back in Washington state with Thom and I. He’ll come on all of our future adventures with us, as well as take some of his own! (When Thom was coming to live here, one of his bags didn’t follow him directly here on the plane and went elsewhere. Come to find out, Owyn was in that bag taking his own adventure!)

This little guy has set up shop in our adventurous hearts and we can’t wait to see where he ends up next.

Owyn and Thom
