This church has a lot of really great programs for children. My daughter really likes going to Sunday school here. Their summer day camp, "Summer Hummer," is amazing. I can't imagine the amount of time and planning that goes into it, but the kids love it!
We don't make it to church very often, but when we do, we go to Calvary. The pastor is very genuine, caring, and friendly. When we're running late, we go sit in the other room with the espresso stand (donations go toward missions) and listen to the sermon on the big screen drinking our lattes. The kids program is great, too! I encourage anyone to check it out.
I take riding lessons here and the arena is usually quiet. There's an indoor and outdoor arena, as well as a track. The people here are friendly. The heated bathrooms are great on cold mornings, too!
My daughter (7 years old) and I make at least 2 or 3 visits here every year. The apple fritters on Saturday are delicious as well as the cider. Also lots of fun to feed the goats! The babies are there in spring and they're adorable. We always go around Halloween to get a pumpkin, too.
The people here are really nice and helpful. We've purchased several and trees here and have been very happy with them. They also have a cute store (in a cool old barn) with miscellaneous garden items (organic fertilizer, wind chimes, fruit jam, etc).
Barnes floral is a locally owned business. They do beautiful arrangements. They did my sister's wedding flowers and the bouquets were beautiful. We use Barnes Floral at my office, as well, and have always been very pleased.
The West Olympia El Sarape has pretty good food and pretty good drinks. It's about what you expect from an American style Mexican restaurant. It's a good place to meet friends for drinks and appetizers.
I usually shop at Kipert's rather than Del's. I buy local hay for my horses and food for my ducks. Del's doesn't always carry local hay and when they do, it's more expensive than Kipert's. The main reason why I don't shop at Del's if I can avoid it is because their staff just isn't very friendly (with a couple of exceptions). Del's does carry some items that Kipert's doesn't though (clothes, toys, magazines).
Dr. Loertscher was recommended to me by a friend. I started seeing him after a car accident with back and neck problems. I almost always felt better after my appointments. He isn't as gentle as some chiropractors, but I feel like he helped me more than other chiropractors that I've seen after him (I moved out of the area).
Dr. Provasoli is the second chiropractor that I've seen so I don't have a lot of experience to use as a comparison. He was much gentler than my previous chiropractor and used newer techniques. However, I feel like I may have had better results with my previous chiro (he was more of a "bone cracker" type though). I think it comes down to which technique you prefer and what your body responds to.
