Welcome! I am an Independent Consultant with Usborne Books & More, and I'm so excited to share our books and some literacy tips with you! In addition to being Mom to 3 adorable kiddos, I'm an English teacher with a love of books and reading.
This past Sunday, Shawn and I decided to take advantage of the fact that I was lectoring at the 8:00am Mass. We actually brought Satchel to Church with us, and we left him in the car. (We came back to find him sleeping on the front passenger seat...so he didn't seem to mind hanging out in the car by himself for a little over an hour.)
We headed to Golden Gardens Park in Ballard, which has a good stretch of beach area. This was only Satchel's second trip to a beach, and he loved it! He's starting to go out into the water a bit. Once the weather gets warmer, we'll have to actually get into the water ourselves and see if he follows us. (I'll let Shawn do that...since water in the Puget Sound stays right around 52 degrees year-round!)
Here are a few pictures:
After walking on the beach for about an hour, we went to the Little Coney restaurant that's right next to the park. It's just a tiny little place, but it's pretty good...and they have yummy corn dogs. :) After lunch, we headed over to Cupcake Royale (my favorite) to get a few cupcakes to take home for the afternoon.
It was a great way to spend a Sunday morning! It was also really nice to know that by the time we got home after all of this, it was still only 1:00! So we still had all afternoon and evening to do whatever we wanted or needed to do. For me, this meant reading, and for Shawn, this unfortunately meant working. But at least he got some fun in on Sunday, too!
