We kicked off summer vacation with the McMurtrys last week with a trip to North Lake Samish. It was so much fun!! We had a picnic and spent 3 hours playing in the water and the sand:) The kids were super good and we didn't have any meltdowns or fights to speak of...Mommy gives this a two thumbs up! Elliot spent most of his time building a very intricate and working reservoir. And Grace helped by collecting whatever he needed. I love days like this where our only concern is fun!
