Papa taught her how to sift the sand and she loved it. Looks like she'll be the baker in the family.
The Easter bunny brought her all sorts of fun things. And yes...Strawberry Shortcake is still around!.
He even brought her a new tea set.
After she had opened all her Easter gifts, we all headed over to the Hood Canal (between Seattle and the Olympic Mtns) to visit college friends of ours (Tom and Lindy) who were at their beach house. It's a beautiful, relaxing setting, with no cell phone or internet service and no TV. Ahhh, heaven!
The Easter bunny left eggs there and Emma was very successful in finding them. She had so many in her basket that she had to help her friend Kayden find some because Kayden would open each one she found and eat the jelly bean before proceeding on to find more. It was really cute.
And trying to open up the clams.
Have you ever seen a purple starfish? Wonder if the environment played a part in the color. It got thrown back into the water but we all oo'd and ah'd over it.
Here are the little girls showing the babies in their tummies...just like their mommys. Emma's mommy is on the left and baby brother is cooking nicely in her tummy. Kayden's mommy is due the first of June. (Sorry Heidi, I didn't mean to cut off your head).
It's a seaport town with a Victorian past. Loved the architecture. This is the courthouse, built in 1862. (I hope I got that right). Well, I got the date right, but I got the town wrong. We were actually in Port Townsend.So sorry to all you Port Townsendites! Thanks to KSedlak for pointing that out to me!
Neat building downtown. A very cute town with lots of shops and restaurants. It was pouring rain, so we weren't able to stay outside as much as we would have liked to.
I'm so far behind on my blog reading that I hope you understand if you haven't heard from me lately.
Thanks for stopping by.
