Ocean Shores

 We decided to enjoy the last few days of summer by going to the beach house at Ocean Shores. Nathan and Cole Mitchell came with us and we had a great time.

Skim Boarding

 Even though the water is always a little chilly at Ocean Shores, the boys were eager to do some skim boarding. Having Nathan and Cole Mitchell along made it even more fun.

Grandma Gwen's birthday

We weren't in Arizona to help celebrate Grandma Gwen's birthday, but they texted us this great picture of the whole family at Erin's house having cake. Wish we could have been there too!

Beans, peas, and cake

 We picked a pretty good harvest of peas and purple beans
Hayden made a cake. Not exactly the best looking cake we've seen, but it tasted good!

Seattle Aquarium

 After our harbor cruise we went to the aquarium.
 Carson the octopus
 Zoe the jellyfish
 These birds were so funny. The keeper put a mirror out there and they went berserk talking to it and bobbing their heads up and down. I guess they will do that for an hour or more and it's supposed to be good for them because they think they are interacting with other birds. Obviously not the smartest species...
 Salmon. Yum.
 Zoe got ahold of the camera and took a ton of pictures of the exhibits. Some of them are so pretty. Here is a pink anemone.
 A purple urchin
 A white anemone
 An orange rockfish
 A big ugly fish
 A shark looking fish
 Sleepy river otters
 A peach anemone
And this concludes our tour of the aquarium. Fun!
