Justin and Catherine brought the makings for a deluxe breakfast including french toast with nectarines and whip cream, eggs, hashbrowns, and a delicious creamy fruit salad! After breakfast, Catherine and I ducked out to "run and errand," while the boys did dishes and cleaned the kitchen and this kids played. Upon return we packed up and headed for what we refer to now as our beach, on the northwest shore of Deception Pass (at Deception Pass State Park where we normally camp.) The plan was to do a hot dog roast at the beach, but that seemed like too much work, and we were still full from our breakfast. Plus, we already had all the s'more stuff ready, what else did we really need?
We played at the beach for hours. The weather was perfect and the scenery unbeatable, especially as the fog lifted. We are so blessed to live in this area. As soon as we got to the beach, the kids were begging to go swimming, in the 40 degree water mind you! What's a parent to do? After all, today was the perfect day to run around the beach in your underwear! What classy parents we are. The kids were totally content to play in the water and sand for hours and we had a blast socializing with very few interruptions. Remind me why I don't go to the beach with friends more often. We concluded our evening at the beach with s'mores and then came home for dinner. The following pictures are some of the highlights.
Thanks Justin, Catherine, Freddy, Aly and Henry for spending the day with us!
The future couple (at least that's what the parents are hoping)
What kind of parents let their kids run around the beach in their underwear?
Haven was a little bummed she got wet.
