Exploring our state

Today we where in the mood to do something new and decided to google local parks and beaches. We found this awesome park/beach in North Seattle. The boys had a great time. We spent the first part of the morning at the beach playing in the sand and finding sea creatures. 

Look at how amazing Washington "sand" is. I didn't move anything for this picture this was a natural as is picture. A crab shell remnant, dried seaweed, rocks, sand, shells and wood. I am sure there is more in there but that is the obvious stuff. Isn't that just beautiful!

The boys are picking out the perfect tossing rocks. 
After the boys had enough of the sand we went to the other section of the park. This park didn't have the average play equipment they had an awesome slide and a fun kid size forest area. The kids had a great day exploring and getting there wiggles out, in this fun new park/beach in there own state. This is just the beginning of our summer fun. This year our goal is to get to know our own state and do fun thing in a afternoons drive. --emily

Exploring our state sounds fun! I think Jer and I have actually been to that park. The steep stairs in the background of one of the pictures looks familiar. I don't remember the fish though...Anyway, I'm glad you had such a good time. I love going to the water!

I love Washington's tidal beaches. And our boys have just as much fun with all those rocks and water as they do in sand! Looks like a fun, beautiful day!

That is the coolest slide I have ever seen, a giant salmon, how cool is that! Did you have trouble getting the boys to go inside? What beach were you at? It is the lowest tide of the season right now so you get to see more on the beach that is usually under the water. It is field trip season to many sea shore areas, Friday I took a group to Alki, it was beautiful. Glad you had a wonderful day!
Love, momAKAgrandma

You'll have to share what beach you visited. I think we'll have to enjoy it too. Rocky beaches aren't the same for us adults, but the kids don't seem to mind.
