We planned to take the girls for a return trip to Chuck E. Cheese today. Dennis, who is a manager there, told us they were expecting 140 kids from the Boy’s and Girl’s Club of Olympia to be there……so we changed those plans and FAST. We changed the plan to take a picnic and go over to Tumwater Historic Park.
The morning showed us a high fog, which is typical for this area at times. During summer months, if you wait about an hour it will all fade away.
After the fog burned off we drove over to the park. There is a trail you can take from the parking lot that goes under Interstate 5 and will eventually take you to downtown Olympia. We did not go that far. We all walked a couple of hundred yards on the path, took a few pics and went back to the park.
The upper end of Capitol Lake and an old fishing dock.
When we take the girls for an outing, I always snap a photo of them on that day. God forbid, they should go missing, I have a photo of exactly what they look like. I would imagine at a time like that your brain would cease to function normally and you could waste valuable time while you are trying to think of all the details on what they were wearing and so forth. This way you have a photo instantly available for the authorities and the search can begin fast.
The girls wanted to run races today. Well guess who won? It certainly wasn’t us old folks. There is a large grass lawn at this park for running or playing ball. After we all ran several races (I always came in like beetle-bomb) we quite because it was too hot.
We went to the playground so the girls could play on the equipment there. They had a lot of fun climbing on all the stuff and worked up an appetite for lunch. I walked around taking the photos while Bruce played along with the girls.
I took some funny shadow pictures while the girls finished their playtime. After that it was time for lunch.
Before heading back to the car, we took a quick walk over to the Deschutes River to take a photo and see the Canada geese on the bank. It was another good day.
Until next time….so long for now!
