Spring in February

We have had the most amazing weather this month. Balmy! One Saturday we caught spring fever and so we piled in the car and headed up to Deception Pass. It was a beautiful day at the beach full of exploring, hiking, climbing, tidepooling, jumping on waves, stomping in puddles,throwing rocks, getting wet and sandy, and having a wonderful time.

It was the first time I have really gone tidepooling with Sam. When I heard Sam exclaim, "anemones lots of anemones! and "look I found a hermit crab"and see him discover snails, limpets, barnacles, sea stars, chitons and crabs with the enthusiasm usually reserved for seeing Buzz Lightyear at Disneyland - It sure made this mom proud :)

I can remember doing that when I was in elementary school. I think it beats Disneyland! You are such a fun mommy.
