By the time I got home from Philadelphia, Jeff and Fran had arrived for a visit. On Friday, we spent a little time visiting Mukilteo, which has a cute little historic light house and beach with a park nearby.
The view from top of the lighthouse:
Jack was very excited to see his cousin Ari and to play with balloons!
On Sunday the 5th, we headed out for a couple of days camping in North Cascade National Park. It was hot! Nearly too hot to do anything, but we did anyway. Oh, and I got stung by a bee on my hip, which swelled up a lot and itched like crazy! So, perhaps not the best camping trip, but good company and fun anyway. We took a boat ride on Diablo lake...
Then, we also visited the Trail of Cedars for a walk, and it was very pretty and had nice signs to tell you about the different kinds of trees, and there were lots of different kinds of trees.
The breeze on the lake and then the shade of the tall trees helped combat the heat! Jack also liked the historic train engine in the town of Newhalem.
