And I Just Can't Wait to Get On the Road Again! (part 4)

After we conquered the Cascades, we ended up driving straight to the Rainier valley where we could see if Mt Rainier was out. She was! And it was the start of 3 gorgeous days spent playing there.

A lot of trips out west, we get caught in the Seattle trap. And while Seattle is a great city, it's not where I grew up, and there is so much more to see and do in the area. This trip, we decided to make it a trip of Firsts. For the kids anyway. In that spirit, we headed out for adventure. First up was visiting with Mom's friend Marilyn. They hadn't seen each other in years, as Marilyn lives in Alaska (truly the frozen tundra - but she likes it?!) From there - we set out to Auburn, where I grew up to see what there was to do.

Marilyn and Mom - they were off to their class reunion later in the day

WE were off to the park. Where for the FIRST time I let them play as long as they wanted - no rules

Hello Mt Rainier!

Walk around the park for the first time.

First trip to the Green River

First time skipping rocks

First time chillin' on the bank.

First stick that looks like a sythe (this may or may not have come home with us.

Another park!

Back to downtown for the kids first Teriyaki!
