The Attack of Josh and Lindsay

The wind was really blowing on the ferry ride back from the airport

The wind was really blowing on the ferry ride back from the airport

We were ready… It was a long time coming but Josh and Lindsay finally made it.  The countdown is over.  The ride to the airport was uneventful and the kids landed as we hit the airport loop.  After exchanging our hello’s and hearing the stories from the kid’s day of travel, we started heading back to the Olympic peninsula.  We chose the “ferry” route, which was a bit faster than going around Puget Sound.   We just missed the next ferry when we got to the terminal so we found a little Chinese restaurant nearby to grab some lunch.  We were all pleasantly surprised at how good it was.  The kids had never been on a car ferry so it was a novel first experience. The kids were a little pooped with the travel and time change so, after some grocery shopping, we headed home to chill for the evening.

Today we started out with a walk along the tidal pools at Salt Creek.  There were lots of great creatures to check out; starfish of varying colors, crabs of varying sizes, sea anemones of varying ugliness, and many other creepy crawly swimmy things (including Chris at one point…oops).  This was another first for Josh and Lindsay, as they had never experienced tidal pools before.   Our next stop after lunch was a short hike to Sol Doc Falls within Olympic National Park.  Although it wasn’t the best waterfall we have seen of late, we had fun trying to capture the perfect timer shot with the kids. Since we are located in the same place as the Twilight series takes place, the kids wanted to rent the movie and watch it (for the 20th time). We finished our day with a great steak dinner and a movie.

    Wow! the photos from Olympic National Park in the last blog entry before this one are just breathtaking!

    I also love the photo of Josh on the rocks and the one of Lindsay with the stick.

    You all look so happy.

    I think you might be getting a little bit jaded about scenery I quote,

    ” Although it wasn’t the best waterfall we have seen of late, we had fun trying to capture the perfect timer shot with the kids.”

    That waterfall looked pretty amazing to me. The only waterfall we have been seeing which is a daily occurance for the past month and one half is the one created by our gutters when it rains so hard that the gutter over flow! New York should be one big lake if this continues that God we are both good swimmers!!

    Much Love & Hugs & kisses to you both and Josh & Lindsay

      Hi Mom,

      We did have a lot of fun at the tidal pools. It’s great to see the kids and fun to have company. You are right about the jaded part, we have discussed that among ourselves. Sorry to hear it has been so rainy… I won’t breat out in song “the sun’ll come out tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow they’ll be sun…” (pretty corny). I hope things are going well with the listing:)

      Love you

      Hey Bren,

      We tried to call last night but no answer. Lindsay left a message. We are having fun and the kids packed well. We have wanted for little and anything they don’t have, Chris and I can cover now that they are “adult” size. Hope you are having a great weekend. We’ll try to call again later.

      Love you:)
