What I Did on my Summer Vacation: 2017 Edition

Okay, call me a slacker. I missed posting on Monday. In my defense, we’d been in Washington State visiting our son and his beautiful family. Eric and Heather needed an overnight getaway, and Brent and I needed the Grandpa/Grandma fix. Win-win!

While Mommy and Daddy were away, the kids and Grandpa and Uncle Greg played. We hit the Children’s Hands-On Museum…

… and motored around the indoor pool at our hotel.

On Saturday, the whole family was back together for a day of adventure at a nearby state park. We hiked and hiked through a magnificent forest that made even my East Texas Pinewoods look a little tame.

Seriously, those ferns!
The elusive “Angry Bird Berry” grows here. Yeah, I totally made up that name, but don’t you think it fits?
So nice to have the two brothers together. (You see why I get their names mixed up)

Eventually, we emerged into sunshine and the spectacle of Puget Sound at low tide. Waaaay low.

So there you have it. I’m back to my home and computer, so expect more of my usual posts. I promise not to show any more pictures of my grandkids… at least, not in every post.

Thanks for reading,
