Our family stay-cation!

Hughey took July 12-16 off of work so we could do a stay-cation as a family. We had so much fun! Each day we planned something that the kids would like to do. The weekend before Hughey went on a hiking trip with a friend so Monday we stayed home and played. Tuesday we met my friend Kara and her family at Point Defiance Zoo. The zoo has a amazing aquarium with huge sharks the boys really thought that was cool! Wednesday we took Caiden to get his first haircut and we walked Downtown Edmond's. Thursday we rode the Ducks in Seattle with my parents, my sister Jamie and her boyfriend Austin. It was a lot of fun! Caiden was bored until we got into the water, then he was excited! Friday we went to Country Village in Bothell. There are a lot of fun things to do there. We rode on a train (Caiden calls it a Tay Tay), bought toys at the toy store (thank you Grandma Sonia for the gift card) and we went the The Village Bean. The Village Bean is a kid friendly coffee shop. It has a bunch of toys for the kids to play with while the parents sit and drink coffee...its so fun!

We are definitely going to do a stay-cation again next year. It worked out so great with the kids and we had a great time. It was nice that we were able to plan everything around the kids schedule. The boys had a hard time when it was time for Hughey to go back to work. We all enjoyed having him home!
