β€œDon’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”

― Dr. Seuss

It got hot today, but we persevered and went berry picking. There were blackberries, raspberries and marionberries. They are all SOOO good, but I think my favorite ones were the ones that I ate while we were there. They were warm from the sun and just a little bit smushy.

We had a fantastic day visiting Manzanita. It was raining when we got there, so we grabbed a bite to eat at a lovely sandwich shop and then headed down to the beach. We explored, got wet, played baseball, flew kites and almost lost a shoe or two in the ocean.

We also had to take some group shots. I had everyone lined up and took a picture when I noticed the water was going to come in and get everyone’s shoes/feet wet. The water was chilly and I knew they’d be surprised so I just kept taking pictures…the picture above is one of them. (insert evil laugh here) πŸ™‚

Kate, Patrick and the girls have a tradition of going to ballparks whenever they travel,so since SafeCo field isn’t too far from where we live, we drove up to Seattle to see a game. The Mariners lost and the traffic going home was horrific, but it was fun to spend time with the family at the game.
