Sports Free Weekend

This past weekend was the first sports free weekend we've had since March.  We wanted to have a fun family day that didn't involve sports equipment or hanging out at home so we decided to take a little day trip.   We drove an hour North of Seattle to a town called Camano Island on the Puget Sound.  

It has beautiful but rustic rocky beaches.  Typical of the Northwest, this is a shoes and fleece kind of beach.  Not a flip flop and swimsuit beach.   But, so beautiful and peaceful.  

The boys spent hours looking for crabs, eels and starfish.  Then, of course, they had to through in a little boys will be boys horseplay. This is their penalty kick/ cup check stance. 
Tilly came along too and loved getting some fresh air.  
So much so, that she was exhausted towards the end of the day.  

While the boys looked for sea life, we got a screw top bottle of wine and some Styrofoam cups from the local gas station and took in the scenery.  

I can't remember when I had a more relaxing "sports free" day with the family.

Hope you had a good weekend too.
