When I saw these shirts circulating, I Just had to get one for Ro! I decided to take the kids to the park last week and take a little impromptu photo shoot. We also found a park I’ve been meaning to check out with these HUGE slides on the side of the hills. So fun and scary. I definitely didn’t think Rowan would do it on his own but he didn’t skip a beat. Isla is usually my little dare devil but the poor girl had tears in her eyes…until she went down on my lap and requested a repeat performance.

I feel so blessed that we get the opportunity to go out here and enjoy the beach! My mom and Brian have really done a lot to the property, but it’s gotten so popular that it’s almost always booked, so I was so happy they reserved memorial day weekend for us all to go. Russ was able to get Friday off too, so when we woke up early, we were able to get on the road. The kids love taking the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge. It’s a great way to break up the drive as well. Last year Isla was so little, and not even walking yet so it was so fun to see her loving everything and keeping up with Rowan. She was pretty scared of the beach at first though so she kept saying, “ No wa-wa (water), Isla scared!” She ended up getting past it though and had a blast digging in the sand and throwing rocks. Why do kids like that so much? Makes me laugh. Here are some photos from our fun weekend: * i held off on this post forever since I planned to combine the photos my mom took…but I just don’t have it in me! ;-) *
We thought the kids could try and sleep next to each other. Between all of the giggling and eye poking, we had to separate them. Maybe someday!
Wagon rides! Endless outdoor exploration! Such a serious face! We found a couple of these huge forts made from drift wood. So cool! My gorgeous mama! Sandy hands! This was just the beginning. Both kids ended up completely soaked and covered with sand. Let them be little! Annual photo by the sign! Looking for bugs. Isla calls everything a “bee!!!” Vacuuming up sand on our last day. Being goofy Love it there and can’t wait to go back!
