Golden Gardens Park

Every one had President's Day off and the weather was nice so we went to a park in Ballard that came highly recommended. Golden Gardens Park is right on the Puget Sound with sandy beaches and dunes. It was warm enough to test the water. The kids liked to run to the waves and as soon as it touched them run away! Hayes is still scared of the waves after they knocked him down in Cannon Beach. Madison and Hayes found some little friends to play in the sand with we had a great time getting some sun and beach time.

It may not be spring according to the calendar, but try and explain that to the blooming flowers right outside our front door. I know pretty much else is blanketed in snow and freezing temperatures. However here in balmy Seattle we had the WARMEST January on record and enjoyed weather in the high 50's and low 60's. We never once hit a freezing temperature. El Nino, I love you! I could have used a little more sun though!
Here is Hayes riding his Diego bike while Madison is at school. He is watching Joe ride off to school on his bike. I think we skipped winter in Seattle this year, and I am not at all sad!

'Cause you had a bad day...

Today I got a call from Madison's school saying that she fell down. This is the result of that fall. Some pretty serious road rash to the side of the face. Poor girl, she is all swollen and red.
