|Charlie enjoying Jelly Belly samples. Hooray for Phenylalanine-free treats!|
One afternoon/evening while I was there we went to the Taste of Tacoma which is an annual festival held at Point Defiance in, you guessed it, Tacoma. There is food, live music, and arts and crafts booths.
Before leaving we had to take a stroll through the Point Defiance rose gardens
|From the moment Charlie got out of the stroller he was a blur.|
Later in the week we spent a lovely evening at the beach exploring with the babes, picnicking, and canoeing.
|Charlie discovering the salty difference between Puget Sound rocks and Raleigh rocks.|
|Alex and I took the canoe out for a spin before we left. For a brief moment it felt like we were kids again and I wasn't living across the country and he wasn't heading off to college.|
