Our day yesterday was filled with some pretty epic things:

Brunch at an amazing lodge in the Cascade mountains:

Then returning home to find this impressive big guy hanging out on our deck.

Need a close up?

See what I mean? EPIC.

Even though he was pretty dang epic, John tossed him over the deck. I thought we could appreciate his epic-ness from afar.

That's not so much a big guy but a big gal! Based on the size of the abdomen I'd say that's a female :-)

Poor thing...I'm guessing that something like this was going on in her spider-y mind while she was getting tossed:

"skipp-i-dee-boo bop doo bop bop be doo..spider scattin'...oh, hello giant thing! I hope you don't mind that I've set up my web out here on the deck, I saw that you had lots of mosquitos and other pests up here so I took care of them for you! Oh, wait, wait, NOOOOOooooooooooooooooooooo"

The hubs and I have actually been actively trying to get spiders to hang out on our balcony garden to help take care of the aphids and gnats that are gobbling up our poor butter lettuce :-)
