We tried to see "Kung Fu Panda: 2" today, but it was completely sold out. Fortunately there was a Target nearby, so we all walked around a bit before lunch. After lunch we made our way to Puget Sound a little north of Olympia - probably about 5-10 minutes from our new home - for some fresh air and exercise.
The kids had a great time at the water's edge splashing in the water, throwing stones, collecting sea shells, and finding crabs.
The sun made an appearance, so we stayed a bit longer than we originally planned, not that we had hard and fast plans. In fact, this wasn't the beach we were looking for, turns out that one was a private beach. On a random side-note, if you look at the photo
above below, just above my head to photo left, you'll catch a glimpse of the Olympic mountains still shrouded in snow.
Both kids had a great time exploring the beach, while I think Catherine and I just treasured having space for the kids to roam away from the hotel room. We have two more (loooooooooonnnnng) weeks in the hotel before we can occupy the house we are renting, so we'll be looking for these opportunities as often as we can.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day today!
