Taking a break

A few Sundays ago we took a little break from normal Sunday activities and headed to Washington Park in Anacortes for a picnic and some playtime. We had to pick Sarah up from a friend’s house in Mount Vernon anyway, so it seemed like a good opportunity to do something out of the ordinary. We’ve been trying to be intentional about scheduling “family time” and we knew that with Sarah beginning work in the raspberry processing plant, it would be a while before we had another such opportunity. It was a gorgeous day, though the wind by the beach was a bit colder than we anticipated.



The girls didn’t swim, but they built rock castles! Ed & I sat & watched them and enjoyed some adult conversation while Sarah took a gagillion photos which are not all going to be posted here.


After our picnic and a little beach time, we drove the 2 mile loop around the park, stopping at various points for rock climbing adventures (which, when involving the 6-year-old and flip flops, could also be described as “adventures causing the mother’s heart to skip a beat.”)


I don’t know who those crazy girls are.

We ended the afternoon with a stop for milkshakes in Anacortes, of course!
