Summer's FINALLY here!

So in the Pacific Northwest, summer can take it's sweet time getting to us. We've had a couple glimpses of it in the last few weeks, but this last week has been a bit more consistent. So, on a sunny Saturday a friend and I packed up our kids and took them to a local beach park.

It was a great time for all, the kids got to play on the playground, my son who doesn't often have a friend along was beside himself with TWO this time! For myself I enjoyed having a couple more models to snap shots of. I mean lets face it, I could take pictures of my kiddos all day long...but not everyone wants to look at them as much as I do!  

Anyway, as is the usual with us, this was a park we'd never been to, and it was lovely. But also as is the norm with parks that head to the beach around here, there was a bit of a trek to get to the beach. Luckily for me and my bum ankle as well as the buggy, there was a lower lot...I let the kids and my husband and my friend do the trek down through the forested gully on steep steps and I took the car and went the lesser of two evils, which STILL involved a bunch of steps...but my he-man of a husband tackled taking the baby's buggy up and down them. So a hip hip hooray for him....

We both got some good shots of all the kiddos while they skipped rocks, collected a bunch of shells, and tried to dig a hole in the sand. Finally after a couple hours we trekked back up, and down the stairs and headed home, tired, and hungry.
