First, I wanted to thank everyone who commented on my "One of those days" post where I just needed to complain for a moment. It totally made me feel better knowing everyone was thinking about me and sympathized. So thank you very much!! Your comments were much appreciated!!
Last Saturday was almost like a mini vacation, it was such a nice day. I woke up thinking about small towns, just walking around and eating ice cream, and I mentioned to Ben how much fun it would be to find a little touristy coastal town to spend the afternoon in. So after Lily woke up from her nap and had lunch, we headed up to Mulkiteo to catch a ferry over to Whidbey Island. Once there we drove to Langley. It was the perfect place to spend a very lazy day just walking around, looking in the little shops and enjoying the sunshine. We walked along the water too, on this grassy boardwalk-type place, and had dinner at The Edgecliff Restaurant, which was really yummy. Right before we left we got double scoop waffle cones! It really was perfect, and I couldn't have asked for a more relaxing day with my family.
We saw many of these while we were there. It made Lily really happy. When she tried to get near them, they'd hop right into the bushes and Lily would bend over and crane her neck trying to see where they'd gone.
Leaving Whidbey Island on our way home. I really love going on ferries for some reason, I think it's lots of fun even when they're only 20 minutes long. Lily seemed to like it too, only not so much being outside on the deck because it was so windy.
