This box only cost us 300.00

 We got a box for the kids and it kept them entertained for the entire afternoon. It only cost us about 300.00 for all day entertainment. I did get a new washing machine out of the deal because my old one died unexpectantly.
 All three of them could fit in the box. There was only a few squabbles.
Freckle Foot was very proud of their creation.

Ocean Trip Day 3

 Freckle Foot decided that she could take her kite for a walk to the beach.
 All the boys enjoyed taking a walking down to the beach.
 She wanted to go all the up the hill. What a happy little girl.
 This is as close to the water as Quarter Shorts would go.

 Couldn't keep the kids out of the water. I don't know how they could stand the cold water.
Having a great time with Auntie.

Ocean Trip 2014 Day 2

I am not sure how the kids can stand to be in that water, it is so cold. Quart Shorts wouldn't go near the water. It was windy so he stayed hunkered down to the ground.

Then he gave up and hid under a towel for the rest of the afternoon.

 The boys are investigating a hole.
Little Loaf got cold and thought sitting down would warm him up.
Once the kids were too cold they played in the sand for a while.

We went to the condo and they took showers and put their PJ's on. I don't think they knew it was only 3:00 in the afternoon. Then we watched Frozen. They were all asleep within 20 minutes of putting them to bed.

Ocean Trip 2014 Day 1

This is kind of a dark picture but Freckle Foot and her little cousin are playing tug a war with a really long piece of seaweed. They were really putting their weight into it. It's hard to tell but I think Freckle Foot is flying her kite and tugging at the same time.

Freckle Foot was letting her little brother fly her kite. We got them at the dollar store. The kites worked great.
Quarter Shorts was trying to attack me with his sandy hand.  

Flying kites and playing in the water were the best parts of their day.

Little Loaf is yelling at the waves. Then he would scream and giggle when they go close to him it was hysterical to watch.

The locks

 We decided to visit the Locks today. There were only two fish in the fish ladders today.
 We went with our friends The Stevenson's.  There were lots of boats going through the Locks. The kids enjoyed watching the boats going in and out of the Locks.  They asked a lot of question about how the Locks work. We went inside the visitor center and they were able to play with a model of the Locks.

Little Loaf's favorite part was the model of the Locks that you can make move using the levers. He was so disappointed that we had to leave. He was still crying when we got home. It was actually hot today in Seattle. We all had some ice water when we got home and sat down and watched a movie.

The explorers

Freckle Foot and Quart Shorts were using their explorer kit before breakfast this last weekend. She was looking for birds and says she is ready for a summer of exploring. Her outfit cracks me up. Quarter Shorts wants to do what ever big sis is doing.
