Sierra woke well before the crack of dawn today, so by 7 am I'm trying to think of things to do. It's was a beautiful day with the fall colors in full bloom, so I decided to put the kids in the car and go up to Port Townsend. I love Port Townsend. It's full of quaint shops, historic buildings and colorful people. We headed out to the beach for some rock throwing (a favorite activity of the kids) and enjoyed the gorgeous NW day. I remind myself that I should do more things like this with the kids. It is so good for us to get out of the house and the daily routines. Of course, it's always easier said than done with two small human beings.
