With a three-day weekend upon us, we decided we needed a little one night family getaway to disconnect from the trappings of being at home and have some time together. The boys needed some new shoes so we hit a couple of outlet centres but tried to spend most of our time outside in the sun. On Saturday morning we walked part of the Centennial Trail near Burlington. Its a trail across Washington state that covers the old BNR railway tracks. We decided it would be perfect for a bike trip...so smooth and far from traffic.
After a diner lunch in Marysville with some famous pie, we drove up to Lake Padden and had a great walk around the lake.
Sunday brought the rain and Adam headed to the north shore for a hike with classmates from his program at school. They got a little wet but had a great time and then set up camp in one of the family's backyards to sleep overnight.
As I was driving Adam on Sunday, we came upon the Rick Hansen relay and then Neil and Colin ran out onto the street to run alongside the relay for awhile. Rick is such an inspiration!
The rain broke for a bit this evening and I got outside to check on the garden and Neil bbq-ed for dinner. Adam went right to bed after dinner (he'd been surviving on about three hours of sleep!) and we're all glad for a four day school week ahead!
