Washington (3): Day with Daddy

On Monday, it was work time for "Smart Mommy."  I reported for duty at the global Getting Smart headquarters with the best colleagues a gal could ask for, while Josephine & Beatrice did some exploring with the best dad two gals could ask for.

Funny thing actually, the following things happened on Monday while I was at work:

  • Lou took the girls to the Point Defiance Zoo
  • Josie realized her dream of zip-lining! And tackled a ropes course.
  • Josie & Bea rode a camel.
Guess how many photos there are of this big day? Guess how many text updates I got about all the fun that they were having?


#epicdadfail (only to be excused due to the fact that, ya know, Lou took the girls to the zoo to zip line and ride camels while I was at work)

But, don't worry. There are still a couple "Day Three" photos worthy of sharing, although there are no camels involved.

I think the whole 'purple mountain's majesty' thing is about this.

Washington (2): Pine Lake

On Sunday we got to spend a few hours with one of our favorite families on the planet. It took about 2 seconds to determine how we'd spend the afternoon - at Pine Lake - this absolutely blissful park and crystal clear lake among GIANT pine trees that just do not exist in the Midwest. It's such a peaceful place that feels absolutely timeless.The kids had such a fun time in the lake!
