|An afternoon at a splash pad in Tacoma. Charlie, ever so cautious around water, took a while to warm up to the idea, and then soaked himself before I could change him out of his clothes.|
|Snagging some Ben time at the splash pad.|
|Enjoying Charlie's first snow cone at the Farmer's Market.|
|Charlie LOVED walking and climbing on the driftwood and was quite intrigued with the long kelp whips.|
I kind of wish I had the next three pictures in video format. In a desperate effort to reach a couple of particularly desireable rocks, Charlie was saying "reach, reeeeeeach" as he struggled to get over the log. Instead of helping the poor guy we laughed at his comical predicament. Don't judge.
I will have it noted that he recovered well and did obtain the desired rocks.
Ah, here we go. A couple pictures of model parents. Ben, you have it pretty good. Seriously though. These newly minted parents are pretty cute and incredibly awesome.
Charlie's expression in the picture on the right pretty much says it all: we loved our time in Washington!
