Weekend full of paddling

Monday, June 6th, 2011

This weekend brought awesome Seattle weather, and with it we took to the water. Friday night Sabine’s friend Clodagh was staying with us, so Saturday we decided to take them paddling in the Arboretum to hunt for turtles and wildlife. This was Sabine’s first time sitting in the middle of the boat and our first time taking two kids. Both girls did great!

Sunday found us back in the Arboretum with the Case family. Scott, Mark and Sabine explored Portage Bay and the cut, while Margot, Toby and I kept it more mellow looking at turtles and herons. Toby mostly slept, but everyone had a great time (homemade chocolate chip cookies make any trip awesome!)
