On Saturday, after family portraits, we had a picnic at Larrabee State Park. The drive to the park is worth the trip. It's along Chuckanut Drive, a gorgeously dramatic scenic route that hugs the Puget Sound shoreline.
The picnic area had a fun little playground, a pavilion and an amphitheater. The kids had a blast meeting new friends, playing soccer and being with all the aunts and uncles. A couple of hours into the picnic we decided to hike down the cliff to the little beach front. It's more of a pebbly beach made for exploring than a sandy, lounging one.
