Summer Trip To Sequim

Every summer I take the kiddos over to Sequim for a few days. A little break from our regular summer life, we get to hang out with Mema and Papa and we often hit the big Clallam County Fair.

This year it seemed we had to squeeze it in between lots of other happenings, but the kids were great (we've had some bad trips before) and were sad to leave, though happy to return to their own beds. Plus, Mema came back home with us, so that helped the transition of leaving.

The kids had a blast swimming at the Sequim indoor pool. The benefits of a small town: it was cheap, there wasn't a single kid in the "shallow" aka kiddie pool and it was quick to get in and out of. Shane would have been happy to go there every single morning. I'm on the search for a pool we can hit up here at home now.

They very much enjoyed their time at the fair. Another benefit of a small town is that you can get in and out of the fair super easy, you can ride some rides with out any lines and see the animals with out huge crowds. It was still expensive though. Both kids rode rides and had a blast. Next year we'll need those unlimited ride bracelets.

Shane finally got to roast a hot dog and a marshmallow over a camp fire! 
Papa had to protect him from the flames.
He roasted that jumbo marshmallow at least 10 different times. 

We visited Railroad Bridge Park for a little stroll. 

You can just barely see their shadows in this picture, but
we saw 30-40 migrating Pink Salmon going up the Dungeness River.
That was pretty fun to see.

Burning off some steam. 
Adalyn's first time in the hot tub. She always refused to go in it before.

Always lots of fun things to do and see with a visit to Sequim. Thanks Mema and Papa for having us!
