Fun at Carkeek

We had GORGEOUS weather over the 4th of July weekend... which is unheard of in Seattle. Normally, summer starts on July 5th around here. Us natives didn't quite know what to do with ourselves, but quickly realized we'd better shed our many layers of extra clothing and get outside before the rain returned.

To take advantage of the warm temps and sunshine, I packed up the kids and we headed to Carkeek Park/Beach for some summertime fun. Carkeek is our go-to beach during the summer; it is close, usually not overrun with people, and offers a gorgeous view. We had a blast! The kids loved exploring on the beach, digging in the sand, throwing rocks into the water, and playing with their beach toys. We had an added bonus of getting to watch a few people who were wind surfing. They had these big kites that they used to pull themselves along on specialized surf boards.

Annika decided to redecorate the beach a bit by moving the driftwood around.
