We made it back home! We enjoyed out time away, but it wasn't as exciting as we had planned. We did take the ferry over to Port Townsend and camped there one night. It ended up raining, so we decided to head down to the next destination. Dosewallips State Park ended up being in the middle of nowhere and due to constraints on our packing space we didn't have any substantial amount of food with us. So, we decided to keep driving until we found a place to camp near civilization. We ended up driving all the way around the Puget Sound, with a stop in Shelton for lunch (thanks again Shandi for directing us to that park) and onto Dash Point State Park in Federal Way. Other than the mosquitos that were there we liked that park. Until, each of the boys had bathroom accidents, one of which resulted in us needing to buy new shoes for one of them. So after all that frustration we decided to give up on camping and spent the next two nights staying at Josh's brother Jacob's house. We spent the days hanging out with my SIL Trish and her girls and that was a lot of fun. Saturday we attempted to go see the Seattle Center, but it was really busy and parking was a joke, so we went to Northgate Mall for lunch and visited ToysRUs. The closest one to Bham is in the Everett area I think, so it's been a long time since the boys have been there. Then we headed home for some much needed rest and a full nights sleep.
